Stephen Colbert did a special live late night show address following the State of the Union speech given by the president. Colbert repeatedly pointed out the more strange comments that came from the president during his address. Such as comments like clean coal. The president mentioned how the country responded to natural disasters in a supposedly timely manner, to which Colbert commented with a quip on the affair the president is alleged to have had with the adult film actress Stormy Daniels. Colbert also pointed out on his live show that despite Trump saying that the nation has succeeded after every natural disaster and risen to the occasion that is not the case. The US territory Puerto Rico still has some 1 million people who do not have power. Colbert also marked the “uplifting” comments and replaced the comments at the end of the address with her his own. The president stated that as a country we rise to the occasion and Colbert said and if there’s an investigation we undermine it. This was in reference to the Mueller investigation that is currently going on that the president has undermined repetitively. Throughout his show Colbert Made a few other quips about the president commenting about African-American unemployment rates being the lowest that they have ever been in the last year by pointing out that none of the African-American leaders who did attend the address stood up or were pleased by the president mentioning this.
“The state of our union is strong. The state of their union? It’s complicated.” Colbert joked on his late night show following the State of the Union address from the president. The joke is a bit of dark humor about the president and the first lady’ she marriage. As the first lady did cancel a trip with the president to Davos, Switzerland it seems possible that they are having an it’s complicated moment in their union. The reason she canceled was cited to be because of scheduling conflicts. It doesn’t seem far-fetched to think that the first lady was dismayed by the news involving Stormy Daniels to be the actual reason for the cancellation. Melania is believed to have been pregnant during the time of this alleged affair the president potentially had with the porn actress.
Laura Bonanti appeared on the Stephen Colbert show again to discuss the state of the union address comically with him using her Melania Trump impression. She joked in character with Stephen on what happened at the State of the Union and what’s been going on with the state of her marriage to the president. Other late night hosts also took some swings following the president’s State of the Union address. Jimmy Kimmel even had Stormy Daniels appear as a guest on his show to discuss the alleged affair she had with the president. She commented that her signature on the disclaimer agreement did not look like her signature. She avoided directly answering any of Kimmel’s questions.
Late night show hosts discussing these things in a level of comic relief can be honestly a relief to many people across the country who have been scratching their heads wondering what’s been going on within the White House and our political system. It is also important for citizens to look at the address response videos made by current politicians serving in the Senate and the house. Representative Joe Kennedy the third and senator Bernie Sanders both made response videos. You may view those address response videos on their social media pages.
