Adominant and confident President Trump delivered one of the most memorable State of the Union speeches in years on Tuesday night, making his opposition look small and defeated.
Republicans cheered as President Trump venerated one of the Tuskegee Airmen, reunited a deployed soldier with his surprised wife and kids, and had the stunning First Lady place the Medal of Freedom around the neck of Rush Limbaugh, one of the heroes of the new right that Trump has helped to build.
Democrats were left sitting on their hands.
They didn’t cheer when Trump lauded a blue-collar boom.
They didn’t cheer when he celebrated record-low unemployment for blacks, veterans, and disabled people.
