On the Congressional Address

“It was a restrained performance, which means the media once again salivated over the possibility of a more presidential Trump,” -Seth Meyers

Seth takes a closer look at Donald Trump’s restrained first speech to Congress


His momentary presidential air,
enabled by the writers’ hackneyed fare,
has earned him cautious kudos all around.
Until his tweets on twitter feed confound
and leave us wondering if he understood
a single phrase he uttered for the good.
We’d understand it for him if we could.
