That is the question. I’m torn. Do I tune into Donald Trump’s State of the Union speech tonight, where he’s being handed a figurative megaphone to spew his lies and his divisiness? He claims he’s going to be talking about unity, but to him, unity means uniformity. It means supporting him unquestioningly, uniting behind him. The kind of unity Senator Lindsey Graham has called for, where he has threatened Republicans who don’t back President Trump on his proposed border wall, which Graham calls “the defining moment of his presidency.” Unity. Yeah, right.
I am tempted to skip the State of the Union because my bullshit meter is full and there’s just no room to overwrite it with more of Donald Trump’s nonsense. And when I think about all of the other possibilities for how I could spend that time: reading a book, reading and writing posts, watching a comedy or drama on TV, listening to upbeat music that I can hum along with, or whatever, why waste my time watching that moron?
I have to admit that I’m considering recording the SOTU on my DVR, just in case he says something truly important.
