Donald J. Trump, President of the United States of America, put on the greatest show in the United States when he delivered the State of the Union address last night. The world was watching Tuesday evening, February 4th at 9 p.m. EST, Well, at least viewers in the United States and around the world that tuned into its broadcast,

I am a staunch 'Never Trumper' but I would be lying if I did not say that his SOTU address was spectacular! Give the devil his due, Mr. Trump knows exactly how to put on a show. If you had just woken from a coma and the SOTU was the first time you ever saw Mr. Trump speak, you'd think, "Wow! This guy is unbelievable!" That's just it. How much of what the POTUS claimed in the SOTU address is to be believed? Pardon me for checking but I hope that you will, too.

While President Trump's supporters would never dream of putting his claims to the test, there's irrefutable proof that he has made more than 16,000 false or misleading claims since taking office. It is impossible to take the man at his word. But, that's okay with Trump's following. He's the consummate reality TV star and the reality is that he's a real wizard at knowing exactly how to distract and divert the audience.

"Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain. Let me show you this instead:

- the 100-year old Tuskegee airman that I just promoted to brigadier general here tonight with his great grandson who wants to someday join the new Space Force that I created...

- My friend the talk-radio host: recently diagnosed with Stage IV cancer, that the FLOTUS is awarding the Medal of Freedom right here and now at the SOTU at my behest...

- Sgt. 1st Class Townsend Williams, currently on his fourth deployment to the Middle East, returning here tonight to be reunited with his wife and their two children.

- An opportunity scholarship has just become available for the Phi lade I phi a fourth grader in the gallery at the SOTU tonight. Imagine that despite the fact that opportunity scholarships remain out of reach of tens of thousands of students who remain on a waiting list since Pennsylvania's (Democratic) governor vetoed to extend a better education for American children trapped in failing government schools...

- And let me tell you this: "So long as I'm President I will always protect your Second Amendment right to keep and bear aims."

Today, the United States Senate will dismiss the impeachment of President Donald J. Trump by voting to acquit him.

Why not"? Mr. Trump gave an Oscar-winning performance as POTUS in his SOTU production. It was "the greatest show for what it’s worth.'"
