CBS Poll: 76% of Viewers Nationwide Approved of President Trump’s Address to to Congress Speech (VIDEO)
THE MSM AND DEMOCRATS ARE IN SERIOUS TROUBLE AS THE JOINT OPPOSITION PARTIES TO TRUMP AND HIS MESSAGE ARE ALSO IN OPPOSITION TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE …
First a CNN poll and now a CBS one, Americans nationwide who viewed President Donald Trump’s joint Address to Congress overwhelmingly approved of his speech. An amazing 76% of viewers stated they approved of his speech, while only 24% disapproved. While half of Democrats found the speech “divisive,” more importantly, about one-third of them also said Mr. Trump was “specific” and “knowledgeable”. No one expected Democrats to side with President Trump, as they have opposed all of his ideas, even the one’s they would normally agree with, but nonetheless sizeable numbers compared to the more negative reactions Democrats have had to other aspects of his presidency. Democrats and the MSM find themselves on the wrong side of the American people as Trump called for unity and for Republicans and Democrats to work together to provide real healthcare reform for the American people.
Viewers nationwide strongly approved of President Trump’s speech Tuesday night, with many Democrats joining Republicans in calling it “presidential” and positive in tone. Republicans and Independents found it “unifying,” though Democrats were slower to come around on that measure.
The President gained support for his policy plans among viewers: Interviewed before and after the address, they came away from it more positive on his ideas for the economy, immigration, terrorism, crime and Obamacare.
As is often the case in addresses to Congress, those who watched were more likely to be from the president’s party – in this case, Republicans. And they described a president they felt was keeping campaign promises and offering an “inspiring” message.
While half of Democrats found the speech “divisive,” about one-third of them also said Mr. Trump was “specific” and “knowledgeable”; neither label drew a majority, but nonetheless sizeable numbers compared to the more negative reactions Democrats have had to other aspects of his presidency.
And viewers of all stripes described the speech as at least somewhat positive in tone.
Overall, most watchers approved of the speech. Republicans did tune in to watch it in much greater numbers than Democrats (as a president’s party typically does) which bolstered those approval numbers. Forty percent of Democrats at least somewhat approved; 18 percent strongly approved.
Supreme Court Justice of the US Skipped President Trump’s Speech As She Has Done Every GOP President, But Attending Democrat One’s is AOK
ONE HAS TO QUESTION HOW AN INDIVIDUAL THAT IS SO POLITICALLY BIAS CAN ACTUALLY SIT ON THE HIGHEST COURT IN THE LAND … SO MUCH FOR JUSTICE BEING BLIND.
Last night Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was a no show for President Donald Trump’s first Address to Congress and it was expected. The 83 year old aging justice, appointed by Bill Clinton in 1993 had no issue attending his joint speeches to Congress, nor Barack Obama’s. However, she was a no show for any of President George W. Bush’s speeches and was AWOL last night as well for President Trump’s first Address to Congress. t is one thing for a justice of the SCOTUS to not attend any of the presidential joint speeches to Congress or the State of the Union events, but for a justice to only attend for Democrat presidents and not of the GOP makes one scratch their head as to how their judicial judgements could be considered not politically bias. It is troubling for a justice of the SCOTUS to only skip the joint speeches of a particular party, no matter which party it is.
U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg always hugged President Barack Obama before his speeches to Congress. She doesn’t even plan to attend President Donald Trump’s first one.
Ginsburg, who called Trump a “faker” during his campaign, intends to skip Tuesday night’s speech, leaving it to five of her colleagues to represent the court.
Chief Justice John Roberts will join Justices Anthony Kennedy, Stephen Breyer, Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan in attendance, court spokeswoman Kathy Arberg confirmed. All are regulars at the annual event. Justices Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito aren’t planning to attend, continuing their past practice.
Alito hasn’t gone to a speech since 2010, the year Obama criticized the justices’ just-issued Citizens United campaign-finance ruling. Obama accused the court of ignoring a century of precedent, a claim that prompted Alito to shake his head and mouth “not true” as Democratic lawmakers directly behind the justices rose to cheer.
Ginsburg, a 1993 appointee of Democrat Bill Clinton, also skipped Republican President George W. Bush’s speeches. She attended all eight of Obama’s.
However, the poetic justice to this partisan justice will be when President Donald J. Trump nominates her successor.
Even with the Liberal MSM Giving President Trump KUDOS For Speech, Democrat Sen. Minority Leader Schumer Looks Small in His Criticism of Trump (VIDEO)
AS KENNY ROGERS SANG IN THE GAMBLER, SOMETIMES YOU GOTTA KNOW WHEN TO HOLD ‘EM, KNOW WHEN TO FOLD ‘EM,. KNOW WHEN TO WALK AWAY AND KNOW WHEN TO RUN … SCHUMER I WOULD SUGGEST THE LATTER.
Following President Donald Trump’s first Address to Congress and the overwhelming approval and KUDOS from the MSM, liberal and conservative alike, that Donald Trump did amazingly well, Democrat Minority Leader Chuck Schumer came across as petty and small in his post speech criticism. My prediction, if Democrats continue to pander to their insane 20% of their base and do nothing but obstruct what the American people are asking for and continue to just act the fool, they will be destroyed in the 2018 midterm elections beyond repair.
At some point you have to tip your hat and move on. This insanoid obstruction to everything Trump has got to stop. Donald Trump asked all to work together for the American people and all Democrats responded with was obstruct, obstruct, obstruct. This will not play well with middle of the road individuals and Independents.
WOW!!! Carryn Owens, Widow of Slain Navy SEAL William Ryan Owens Receives Standing Ovation During Trump’s Address to Congress (VIDEO)
THE MOST EMOTIONAL AND HEART TUGGING MOMENT I HAVE EVER SEEN IN A PRESIDENT’S ADDRESS TO CONGRESS EVER!!!
This was the part of the speech that will forever be remembered … A Commander in Chief honoring the widow of a slain military hero. Tonight during President Donald Trump’s Address to Congress, President Trump paid homage to Carryn Owens, the widow of slain Navy SEAL, William Ryan Owens, who received a standing ovation from all in attendance on both sides of the aisle. Chief special warfare operator William “Ryan” Owens was killed in an intelligence-gathering raid in Yemen last month. President Trump said, “Ryan died as he lived, a warrior and a hero, battling against terrorism and securing our nation.” As all looked upon the wife of William Ryan Owens in tears, looking up to the Heavens and mouthing, I love you baby and thanks to the audience, all in attendance continued the standing ovation, well most except for the disrespectful Democrats, for several minutes. No Carryn Owens, it is we that need to thank you and heroes like your husband that protect our freedoms and liberties. After the applause stopped, Trump ad-libbed and said to Carryn Owens, “And Ryan is looking down right now, you know that, and he is very happy because I think he just broke a record” referring to the endless standing ovation his widow received. What a touching and moving moment as I have ever seen at such an event.
“I just spoke to our great General [James] Mattis — just now — who reconfirmed that, and I quote, ‘Ryan was a part of a highly successful raid that generated large amounts of vital intelligence that will lead to many more victories in the future against our enemy, Ryan’s legacy is etched into eternity.”
“For as the bible teaches us, there is no greater act of love than to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. Ryan laid down his life for his friends, for his country, and for our Freedom – we will never forget him.”
President Donald Trump paid homage to the first military death of his nascent administration in his address to a joint session of Congress on Tuesday, creating a memorable, heartfelt moment of recognition for the slain Navy SEAL’s widow.
Carryn Owens received the longest applause of the night — totaling more than two minutes of sustained applause — after Trump acknowledged her presence and the heroic efforts of her late husband, chief special warfare operator William “Ryan” Owens, who was killed in an intelligence-gathering raid in Yemen last month.
“The challenges we face as a nation are great, but our people are even greater — and none are greater or braver than those who fight for America in uniform,” Trump said. “We are blessed to be joined tonight by Carryn Owens, the widow of U.S. Navy special operator senior chief William ‘Ryan’ Owens. Ryan died as he lived, a warrior and a hero, battling against terrorism and securing our nation.”
Vice President Mike Pence and House Speaker Paul Ryan, who were seated behind Trump, stood up to applaud as attendees of the president’s address showered Owens with the 30-second standing ovation.
Fox News Chris Wallace Says, “I Feel Like Tonight Donald Trump Became the President of the United States” (VIDEO) (Update: MSM Praises Trump Speech)
FOX NEWS CHRIS WALLACE PRAISES PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP’S SPEECH IN ADDRESS TO CONGRESS …
Following President Donald Trump’s first Address to Congress, Chris Wallace, the host of FOX News Sunday, had nothing but praise as he analyzed the speech. Wallace, who is no Trump cheerleader at Fox said, “it was by far the best speech that Donald Trump ever gave.” He further went on to say that “it was one of the best speeches in that setting that he ever heard any president give.”
Wallace then said, “I want to say this right, but I feel like tonight, Donald Trump became the president of the United States.” You could see the head of Dana Pirino, former GWB press secretary and Fox News host, in the background nodding with approval. What Wallace said was no disrespect to President Trump. Wallace went on to follow up and say, “Yes, of course he got it 35 or 38 or 40 days ago when he was sworn in, but so many Democrats didn’t recognize him. I think tonight whether you agree or disagree with him, he became the president of the United States and everyone is going to have to accept that fact.”
UPDATE I: From The Washington Examiner, Media applaud Trump’s first joint session speech.
Journalists applauded President Trump’s first joint session address on Tuesday, calling it presidential and predicting that it will be popular beyond his core base of supporters.
“This will be, I think, a very well-received speech for Donald Trump,” said liberal MSNBC host Rachel Maddow after the speech. She said part of the reason was “because of expectations” for Trump are lower, since he is not a typical politician.
In his speech, Trump maintained his campaign message to push for American interests on international trade and foreign policy, while calling on unity between Republicans and Democrats.
Chris Matthews said that Trump’s message of “economic nationalism” was likely to resonate. “I think left, right and center, people have a sense of righteous indignation,” he said. “It’s probably the reason [Trump] was elected in [swing states] Michigan, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and Ohio.”
“This is Trump at his most presidential — his most effective speech yet,” said ABC White House correspondent Jonathan Karl on Twitter.
Los Angeles Times White House Correspondent Mike Memoli said on Twitter that Trump’s speech was “playing out well” for Trump.
