Trump speaks to Congress tonight. I’m being told I need to watch it. Telling Americans they need to watch this speech is like telling Romans they should listen carefully to the fiddling of Nero while Rome burns.
I have much, much better things to do, even if those things include having my toenails painted by my daughter.
As a rule, I generally watch the State of the Union speeches. I try to catch them every year. Until this year. This year I will not be listening, just as I have tried to never listen every time the Orange Hate-Monkey speaks. This is an attempt to conserve the brains cells that I have left. Listening to lies has been shown to make you less intelligent, and I know that Trump will be doing nothing but lying anytime he speaks.
I’ll pay attention to the president when (if) we get a different one.
