After some back and forth over when and where it would happen, President Donald Trump finally delivered his second State of the Union Address on February 5. Now that the government is open again, Trump moved on to discussing some of his administrations’ successes over the past two years and calling for bipartisan support. Oh, and Rick Perry was the designated survivor. He currently serves as Secretary of Energy. Perry has held the position for the entire Trump administration, a real feat when you consider turnover.
Some of the guests of the Trump’s included a young girl recovering from brain cancer, a boy who shares the Trump’s surname and was bullied for it, a Holocaust survivor, and a World War II soldier who helped liberate a concentration camp. Not all of the Supreme Court Justices made an appearance, as RBG is still recovering from surgery. Nancy Pelosi loomed in the background as the newly re-elected Speaker of the House, and despite that and the rancorous partisan gridlock, the speech was well-received in the polls.
