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.She lived up to my expectations. Watch Samantha Bee say The State of Our Union is BAD.
Trump's impeachment trial ended in an acquittal. The State of the Union was a complete catastrophe. But hey, at least the Iowa Caucus went well! Oh wait, never mind.Best week ever for Donald Trump, but a bad week for democracy and the rule of law.
By the way, congratulations are in order for Bee and her writers. Follow over the jump for some good news for them.
