But I will watch the response to see how well Stacey Abrams does. She had better fact check him. She should be great.

they can track things much more accurately with cable boxes and internet sites, if a lot of people don't watch, but then tune in for Ms. Abrams, her better ratings will drive him round the bend.

It is horrendous. I can't stand the constant stopping for disingenuous applause. It is the worst way to hear a speaker.

Someone would be doing the Country a service if they released an edited version that cut all that crap out.

Not many people make me feel as he does just from watching them. It ranges from feeling very uncomfortable to angry. I rarely ever get angry. It's not an emotion I feel often. He brings it out of me.

With that said, I try not to miss a SOTU or rebuttal.

I'm going to note the times when:
1. He starts gratuitously blaming and bashing Democrats for whatever stupid thing he himself did or could not accomplish because we refuse to rubber stamp idiocy.
2. When he starts going off script and rambling incoherently.

He's such a bad orator, especially when reading off a teleprompter. Plus, watching his bloated face and weird mouth contort into dumb expressions disgusts me. Not to mention all the invented self-congratulatory bs he spews. Ugh.

Will watch the rebuttal and read the transcripts of his speech.

The ratings data will show the drop off in viewership, and I want that to drop as sharpy as possible.
