Colbert, Kimmel, and Noah react to the State of the Union Address and Iowa Caucuses, the opening of Episode 5, Season 4 of 'The Worst Wing'

Once again, it's time for the recap of the latest episode of "The Worst Wing," Stephen Colbert's name for the reality show that is the Trump Administration.  Effectively, this week's ongoing episode began with the State of the Union Address against the backdrop of the confusion surrounding the results of the Iowa Caucuses.

I begin my recap with Colbert's LIVE Monologue Following Trump's 2020 State Of The Union Address.

After President Trump delivered a divisive State of the Union, Stephen Colbert delivered his LIVE Late Show monologue. The one thing we can all agree on: "My fellow Americans, the state of our union was long."
Colbert's Monologue went overtime as he asked How Did Iowa Get So Thoroughly Caucus Blocked?

On the first day of official voting in the 2020 Democratic primary, new reporting procedures failed and paralyzed the counting of votes in the Iowa caucus.
Two nights later and the results still haven't been completely reported.

While Colbert broke the topics in two, others combined the two, such as Jimmy Kimmel on Trump’s SOTU & Iowa Caucus.

During Trump’s State of the Union Address he told a bunch of lies, did not shake Nancy Pelosi’s hand, gave Rush Limbaugh the Presidential Medal of Freedom on Rosa Parks Day, and Guillermo gave the official Spanish language response. The Democrats had a very long day with the Iowa Caucus disaster too so we checked in with one of the coordinators to get some info on what went wrong.
I think Colbert is funnier, but Kimmel did a better job of both reporting the events of the address and expressing his hostility in humor.

I'm saving the first comedian to comment for last, Trevor Noah's liver response to Trump’s 2020 State of the Union.

Trevor went LIVE after Trump’s third State of the Union address in Washington, D.C.
Colbert may be funnier and Kimmel more hostile, but I think Noah had the most original insights on the State of the Union and Iowa Caucuses of the three.  Of course, if I want really original takes on both, plus Trump's acquittal, I just have to wait for Samantha Bee to weigh in tonight.  She might just earn an entry with her reaction tomorrow.  Stay tuned.
