POLITICS AND SHOWBIZ

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY FEBRUARY 7, 2019

         THERE IS ALWAYS SHOWBIZ IN POLITICS AND POLITICS IN SHOWBIZ. SUCH WAS THE CASE IN PRESIDENT TRUMP’S STATE OF THE UNION ADDRESS TUESDAY NIGHT. LEFTIST FEMALE MEMBERS OF CONGRESS WORE WHITE IN SUPPOSED SOLIDARITY WITH THE SUFFRAGETTES. THEY ARE A LITTLE LATE. WOMEN HAVE HAD THE VOTE FOR THE LAST CENTURY AND THE EMPLOYMENT RATE FOR WOMEN IS AT RECORD HIGHS. WHAT ARE THEY PROTESTING?

         THEN THERE WAS THE DRAMA OF THE BALCONY GUESTS, WHICH CAME OFF VERY WELL.

         THE PRESIDENT’S ADDRESS WAS FULL OF TALK ABOUT UNITY, BUT HE ALSO FIRMLY PROMISED THE SOUTHERN WALL WOULD BE BUILT ONE WAY OR ANOTHER. AND TO MY SURPRISE HE MADE ONE OF THE BEST PRO-LIFE COMMENTS I HAVE EVER HEARD FROM A PRESIDENT, DENOUNCING NEW YORK’S NEW ABORTION LAW AND A PROPOSED LAW THAT WAS DEFEATED IN VIRGINIA ALOWING FOR THE KILLING OF NEWBORNS.

         A SNAP CBS NEWS POLL FOUND 76 PERCENT OF VIEWERS THOUGHT IT A GOOD SPEECH, BUT I’M NOT LOOKING FOR EVEN A SMALL PERCENTAGE OF CONGRESSIONAL DEMOCRATS TO GO ALONG WITH HIM ON ANYTHING. THEY HATE TRUMP AND WANT HIM OUT OF OFFICE. THAT’S TOO BAD FOR THE COUNTRY. I’M CAL THOMAS.
