The annual State of the Union is almost upon us. This will be President Donald Trump’s first SOTU and the buzz is growing as many Americans wait to see what the president will lay out as his priorities for the year.
Political nerds might even be planning a watch party for this main event. Well, you’re in luck because I’ve put together a fun-inducing SOTU watch party guide! Now my editor told me, in no uncertain terms, that I could not write a drinking game for the SOTU that involved any alcohol whatsoever because many of you are underage. So, break out your milk cartons and juice boxes for this, totally not encouraging drinking alcohol in any way, drinking game for the SOTU!
The second episode of Polititalk dives into Trump’s trip to Asia, an ongoing investigation of Paul Manafort and Trump’s position on potentially ending the Diversity Visa Program following the Manhattan terrorist attack.
Trump decried Sunday’s Las Vegas mass-shooting that killed 58 and injured hundreds as “an act of pure evil” and called for unity on Monday at the White House.
The remarks came in response to the massacre at a country music festival near the Las Vegas Strip that featured the likes of Jason Aldean, Eric Church, and Sam Hunt. It is the deadliest mass shooting in modern American history.
“My fellow Americans, we are joined together today in sadness, shock, and grief. Last night, a gunman opened fire on a large crowd at a country music concert in Las Vegas, Nevada. He brutally murdered more than 50 people and wounded hundreds more. It was an act of pure evil,” Trump said.
