Trump's State of the ONION not very APPEALING
Written by

onion stateThe State of the Onion remains unchanged after Donald Trump’s first State of the Union address gets pealed away. The lengthy speech is unlikely to change much in America’s affect, despite the calls for unity and bipartisanship that have been lacking throughout nearly all of Trump’s first year in office. The morning after speaking, Trump still remains one of the most divisive presidents in history despite various accomplishments achieved with the help of a highly partisan congress.

usa nancyLast night, President Donald Trump delivered a masterful State of the Union address. It was a soaring speech that focused on the accomplishments of his first year as President. He also outlined the challenges that lie ahead, including immigration.

chuck donnie nancyLast night, the world watched President Donald Trump give his first State of the Union speech. Politically, it resonated throughout America.  What about in Louisiana?  More broadly, what can politicians and legislators learn from the Trump phenomena as they approach the upcoming elections and the legislative session?

imposibThe point isn’t so much that Democrats’ positions continue to deteriorate in Louisiana, or even why, but why Democrats continue to let it happen.
My Advocate colleague Tyler Bridges wrote a piece on how, despite enthusiasm stemming from Democrat Gov. John Bel Edwards’ 2015 upset win, indicators keep showing the party’s fortunes declining.

trump congress speechPresident Donald Trump will be speaking to the nation Tuesday night on the eve of the successful trip to Switzerland and the passing of his tax plan. Also, he has laid out a plan of sorts to enable the “dreamers” to remain the the United States in exchanged with ending the immigration lottery and in exchange with $25 billion to fund his Mexican wall.

Last year, when he addressed the nation, about ten days after his inaugural speech, the President gave a sober speech in which afterwards, even the most liberal commentators congratulated him for staying on message.

conspirators roaredIf there’s a take-away from Michael Wolff’s book, “Fire and Fury,” it has to be that Donald Trump did not collude with Russia to win the 2016 election. Since none of Trump’s motivations appears to have been particularly altruistic, it’s clear, if Wolff’s theory is correct, that this unlikely candidate would have sought help from any power, foreign or domestic, to win anything. He’d rather have lost, like king in “The Mouse that Roared” who declared war on America in the belief that a loss would trigger foreign aid sufficient to bail out his tiny, broke kingdom.

nda2Are we seeing some trickle down Trump now with New Orleans's incoming Mayor, LaToya Cantrell?

Many of us have long stated that the President of the United States sets the agenda in government and ethics.  When Donald Trump refused to show his income taxes destroying a tradition set by modern presidential candidates, it opened the door for others in state and local government to refuse to share financial information unbound by law to disclose.

Not sure if you have noticed or not, but there is something called the fiscal cliff looming in Louisiana. If you haven’t heard of it yet, sit tight, because you will hear a whole lot about it over the next few months.

The 2018 crisis will be filled with plenty of drama, finger pointing and inflammatory rhetoric. Every (former, current and future) politician will say it is the other (former, current and future) politician’s fault for the deficits and lack of agreement on the appropriate mixture of taxes and cuts to fill it.
