Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, January 27, 2018

Coming off an appearance on the global stage, and facing more problems on the investigative front, President Trump is preparing a State of the Union address designed to outline his vision of a safer and stronger United States, officials said.

While touting the tax cuts he signed into law last year, Trump will also outline a second-year agenda that includes an infrastructure proposal, an immigration plan, and a new approach to trade with other countries, said officials who briefed reporters ahead of Trump's first State of the Union address.

One added that the U.S. economy was "roaring."

The theme of this year's speech is a "a safe, strong, and proud America," officials said, and Trump is expected to discuss how the the tax cut package he signed late last year will spark the economic recovery.

The New York Times reported that back in June Trump ordered the dismissal of Special Counsel Robert Mueller, and backed down only after White House Counsel Don McGahn threatened to quit over the move.

Trump denounced the report as "fake news."

Some humans ain't human
Some people ain't kind
You open up their hearts
And here's what you'll find
A few frozen pizzas
Some ice cubes with hair
A broken Popsicle
You don't want to go there

Some humans ain't human
Though they walk like we do
They live and they breathe
Just to turn the old screw
They screw you when you're sleeping
They try to screw you blind
Some humans ain't human
Some people ain't kind

Have you ever noticed
When you're feeling really good
There's always a pigeon
That'll come shit on your hood
Or you're feeling your freedom
And the world's off your back
Some cowboy from Texas
Starts his own war in Iraq

Some humans ain't human
Some people ain't kind
They lie through their teeth
With their head up their behind
You open up their hearts
And here's what you'll find
Some humans ain't human
Some people ain't kind

Guess we'll see if Melania goes to the speech; leaves the posh DC hotel she's been staying at since the Stormy Story broke .

Bonus song> Kacey Musgraves "Burn One with John Prine"

www.youtube.com

Get a little drunk, get a little loud
Stupid me and my rebel mouth
Ain't all wrong but I ain't all right
Don't see the world in black and white

I'm not good at being careful
I just say what's on my mind
Like my idea of heaven
Is to burn one with John Prine

Maybe he would sit awhile
And render me an illegal smile
And I bet that he would understand
Just how I feel and who I am

Melania left the White House after the stormy story? A hotel, huh? She has to be quite familiar with going in and out of hotels, as she often met clientele at such places. One can only wonder if she's up to her old tricks in that hotel.

He should be ok as long as he stays laser focused on the teleprompter.

I agree. Dragfree's post was completely uncalled for.

He has bad manners and a dirty mind. Ignor!

an infrastructure plan

You mean selling off public lands to be destroyed for corporate profit to pay for something that should be a governmental responsibility in the first place.

While that post was out of far left field, you tend to be blind anyway. So I guess it's OK you see nothing this time. Blind squirrel and all...

Good idea -- Hitler was a prude, so Trump would be one up on him.

Preview of the SOTUS

""All Americans, not only in the States most heavily affected but in every place in this country, are rightly disturbed by the large numbers of illegal aliens entering our country. The jobs they hold might otherwise be held by citizens or legal immigrants. The public service they use impose burdens on our taxpayers. That's why our administration has moved aggressively to secure our borders more by hiring a record number of new border guards, by deporting twice as many criminal aliens as ever before, by cracking down on illegal hiring, by barring welfare benefits to illegal aliens. In the budget I will present to you, we will try to do more to speed the deportation of illegal aliens who are arrested for crimes, to better identify illegal aliens in the workplace... We are a nation of immigrants. But we are also a nation of laws. It is wrong and ultimately self-defeating for a nation of immigrants to permit the kind of abuse of our immigration laws we have seen in recent years, and we must do more to stop it."

Oops. That was Bill Clinton's 1995 SOTU.

"Is not the SOTU late?"

Be patient. It probably has a lot of big words that Trump has never seen before.

Interesting that the economy is both "roaring" and in need of recovery at the same time.

Seems some don't understand what the address is about.

Evelyn Rodriguez, whose daughter's killing, allegedly at the hands of MS-13 gang members, transformed the Brentwood mother into a vocal youth advocate, said she will attend President Donald Trump's Tuesday State of the Union address as a White House guest.www.newsday.com

Not bad, not bad at all.

Why?

I'm not saying gangs aren't a problem, I would just say there's a litany of problems more pressing or at least as pressing to the average American.

Say that to Evelyn, and the 100s of people killed relatives.

Trump's SOTU Will Call for "Safe, Strong, Stormy" America
I wonder if he'll talk about the problem of women giving birth at 9 months.

I wonder what social issue he will used to further divide the nation this time.
