Here’s who Trump angered in his State of the Union address

WASHINGTON – President Donald Trump struck a rare bipartisan tone in his first State of the Union address Tuesday night. But he still managed to anger plenty of people.

The list starts with Democrats, of course, who showed their displeasure over a year’s worth of policies and personal attacks by withholding their applause and remaining seated throughout most of his 81-minute speech before a joint session of Congress.

Fiscal conservatives bristled at Trump’s victory lap over the new tax overhaul, disappointed that it threatens to dramatically increase the federal deficit. His base is frustrated with his immigration proposal that would offer nearly 2 million young immigrants a path to citizenship. And those who are worried about the president going to war didn’t much like his extensive tough talk on North Korea.

Here is a glimpse of those nowhere near as jubilant as many congressional Republicans with Trump’s speech and what they found lacking or maddening:

    “You have enemies? Why, it is the story of every man who has done a great deed or created a new idea. It is the cloud which thunders around everything that shines. Fame must have enemies, as light must have gnats. Do not bother yourself about it; disdain. Keep your mind serene as you keep your life clear.” – Victor Hugo, Choses Vues 1849-1885
    “Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.
    Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.” – Matthew 5:11-12, KJV
    “Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. 12 Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.” – Matthew 5:11-12 NIV

    pretend to give the democrats everything they want, with strings attached. they’re always bellowing about “bipartisanship” when they’re out of power, right? when they turn it down, because they don’t want to give trump anything…then they have to have very uncomfortable conversations with their gaggle of single-issue voter groups. enough of those conversations and they lose.

    they get little to nothing of what they want, they can’t blame trump because he tried to give it to them and everyone knows it, and they lose.

    more winning!

      Democrats are like the Palestinians. No matter what they are offered, no matter how often they have demanded it, they will always find a way to reject it.

    If the democrats were a chick, the way Trump has been playing them, they all be screaming..”Oh God”….Oh God”……Oh God”…….Oh God”………..

    Trump is proving himself to be a master at this game. He should be; it’s how he became a billionaire.
    His enemies are like cats chasing his laser pointer while he takes care of business.

    IF the enemies of Trump can get a clue, they should realize that the progress made with the state of the economy, war in the Mid East, and illegal immigration is being done essentially by Trump alone. The press, the Dems, the Repubs, the intelligence agencies are all basically opposed to him. And yet – he keeps winning. Congress should beware.

    None of them thought he would be able to do anything. Their thoughts were ” Won’t make a difference – he won’t get shit done. Oh Crap ! He’s getting shit done. Making us like we aren’t doing their jobs”. Making it apparent that they aren’t needed after all. That the lies they told that their hands were tied because of A and B and C, but keep voting us in, victory is just around the corner.

    Roll on Donald !!
