I wonder if he says the same thing to the doctors/surgeons working on his wife.

I think it could be 2024 for him. If Putin does even worse shit than he is now (level Kyiv, nukes, etc), I donít see how Trump can win given his highly visible praise of Putin who is now a war criminal for all to see.

Joe Biden is NOT a friend to the Black Community. Still regretting voting for this Old Bitch.

Not a chance. Trump runs the party and Trump is incapable of stepping aside to let someone younger yet Trump-like in. Unless he strokes out and becomes a turnip, heís running.

I assume he didn't know that cameras were running as he walked up to the podium? Because it kind of seems like his stupid bullshit was even more theatrical than a simple "prop".

There really wasn't a better option on election day, but his idiotic "fund the police" line was a low point in the SOTU.

I know we've tried pouring huge amounts of money into police departments, but have we ever tried throwing even more money at them? Then they could do no-knock drone missile strikes!

I'm a die-hard liberal but I too think cutting funding to police departments is not the answer. But that money should come with requirements for additional training, support for community involvement in policing and additional funds for social workers who are trained to deal with people having a crisis. And whatever steps can be taking to abolish the "thin blue line" bullshit. The other officers around Chauvin as he murdered George Floyd who were recently convicted will hopefully be a wake-up call for some in the field who won't sit by while another officer goes off the rails. I'd be up for a top-to-bottom restructuring of the entire concept of policing, but that requires money too.

Also it's high time we make marijuana 100% legal across the board. I don't even care about it myself but it's ridiculous that an ounce of effort is wasted busting people for possession of a plant.

Cutting funding from "some" police departments is definitely needed. Rural southern PD don't need military grade equipment to keep the peace.

I'd take it further, the war on drugs needs to stop, we obviously lost, so lets just get rid of that bullshit. Decriminalize (or even legalize) all substances like Portugal did, society didn't collapse when they did that, and they have far fewer deaths from illicit stuff laced with fentanyl or god knows what. Let adults do what they want and ensure that they have a safe supply (and a safe place to use it). Enough people have died or gone to prison over this bullshit, and the only people who are profiting off of it are criminal organizations.

I 100% agree. Anyone who says "but then people will be impaired" or "what about the children?" is ignoring that alcohol is already legal. And can easily be used to destroy your life. No reason we couldn't loop these other substances under the same umbrella where we handle alcohol, complete with the same societal stigmas, job requirements, etc.
