I can't stand to listen to the guy, so I'll be a "no". I might watch the Democrats' rebuttal but probably not, either. The post-game reviews sound like a much better use of my time. I'll be curious to see if he mentions the investigation, the FBI or CIA or North Korea or if he slips in his inauguration, "fake news," his approval rating, Hillary, the great respect he's gotten around the world, Democrats wanting to flood the country with illegals or any of his other alternative facts. Or if he'll stay on script. You gotta know he's going to take credit for things he had little or nothing to do with and everything will be because of him and him alone. The post-game fact checking will be interesting, as always.

No for me. I've heard enough campaign speeches.

I'll be watching. Nothing better to do tonight. I'm gonna get a kick out of watching the Democratic side. They are really going to show him. They are going to wear black. Yeah, that'll show him. Some aren't even going to show up. Yeah, that'll show him.

I think the Republicans should be equally childish. The ones on the aisle next to the Democratic side should wear "I'm with stupid," with the index finger pointing to the Dems. :mrgreen:

Doing your own root canal, or crushing your testicles in a vice, are marginally better.

Do you think anyone will yell "You lie!" or does that need to be said?

Supposedly, the Democrats have decided to be silent, and "let Trump be his blithering self."

Forgive me, Professor, I forgot for a moment that Troy Thomas was rehired today. So yours have already been crushed.

Very few people save his rabid supporters can stand to listen to him for long. Add those that will be getting paid professionally to listen, and you pretty much have the total number that will hear the entire thing.

Some possible pool betting:

How far into the speech will he get before mentioning his electoral victory.
How far into the speech will he first pat himself on the back?

I'm watching. It should be a great show. The Trump woman will be dressed to the nines and President Trump will tell us how lucky we are to have him. Unemployment down, wages up. Main Street with help wanted signs in the windows and people working overtime. I'm looking for protest in the audience and the democrats are so splintered they are giving five rebuttals tonight. God, America and the working man and woman will be the talk tonight....... I can see why the democrats will hate it. :)

Russian vodka and caviar tonight. :giggle: Your welcome to come over Professor.

I think they've covered that quite well with the last election.

I'll consider it a success if he doesn't slur any words or drink from a water bottle with both hands
