Highlights from Trump’s first address to Congress

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

I have to be honest: I find Donald Trump’s speeches full of meaning. They’re not just cliches and buzzwords.

President Trump’s last night’s speech to a joint session of Congress was substantive, but it was also stylish. I think it cemented for people, even more than his inauguration did, that he’s president now.

I’ll go over some highlights tonight (and make some predictions, too.)

Trump talked about jobs that have already been created or brought back. But of course, the media doesn’t care about industrial jobs in flyover country. Those jobs aren’t cool. But these "uncool" jobs are why millions of factory workers voted for him.

(And Trump isn’t “bringing back jobs” the Trudeau way: giving cash to Bombardier, who will lay off workers anyways.)

And there was the amazing, touching reference to a dead soldier and his widow. But did you notice? The whole of Congress applauded, except Nancy Pelosi, the most prominent Democrat in Congress. It shows you how extremist and tone-deaf the Democrats are in 2017.

The soaring language. The hope.

That’s the president for the next four years.

And, failing an assassin’s bullet, that’s the president for the next eight years.

NEXT: The great Raheel Raza of Muslims Facing Tomorrow, comes on to explain why she strongly opposes M-103, the Trudeau Liberals' anti-Islamophobia motion.

THEN: Our own Barbara Kay joins me to talk about the "Implicit Association Test."

The CBC has just adopted this test as "a tool for identifying and measuring unconscious biases among its senior executives," but she says the test's credibility is now under attack.

FINALLY: Your messages to me!

Of D.J.Trumps quotes, I was also impressed by “Education is the New Civil Rights Struggle” (sic). Perhaps Lefty’s NEA will meet their demise’.

From the camera angles, my guess was the Democrats were to Trump’s left, and anytime he was making a poignant comment about the ex-president, Obama, and his policies, Trump was looking square at the Democrats to his left.

Pretty sad that elected officials did not stand for an invited guest, who is the widow of a soldier. Simple courtesy demands this over politics. But the regressive liberals and socialists are not courteous, polite or humane in their attitude.

FAKE NEWS from Bill Maher, who Tweeted:
How bout that Donald Trump [last night]! Home run, I say! And so presidential – on the way out, he didn’t grab a single pussy!

Not true Bill, on the way out he did in fact shake hands with some Democrats.
