Donald Trump just gave an 80-minute speech reviewing is first year in office, discussing policy and implementations in his first State of the Union address – and several people including Hollywood stars live tweeted their hilarious reactions!
Many viewers were just not on board with The President’s long-winded speech.
People called out the POTUS for his bogus policies on immigration, tax reforms and the fact that he amplified his own clapping with the microphone!
Trump, to his credit, had planned on giving a spirited address.
“Tonight, I call upon on all of us to set aside our differences, to seek out common ground, and to summon the unity we need to deliver for the people.”
“This is really the key. These are the people we were elected to serve,” he told Congress.
“I am asking both parties to come together to give us the safe, fast, reliable, and modern infrastructure our economy needs and our people deserve,” Trump added.
In response to the speech, several people – including celebrities – used the opportunity to make jokes and memes out of Trump!
People also made fun of how the ticket to the speech had a typo!
Comedian, Carl Reiner, took a different approach to his tweeted insult; he brought the Russians to the party!
“How ungrateful can a man be? In his long inauguration address Trump did not spend one minute to thank the people who helped him get elected, his dedicated Russian allies and their peerless leader, Vladimir Putin. I have just lost all respect for POTUS the Putz,” he wrote.
Host, Andy Cohen, and actress, Amber Tamblyn, made memes out of the footage of Minority Leader of the US House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi.
Several hilarious video memes were also seen!

The Darth Vader also became a part of the memes!
Jokes aside, Trump’s call to summon unity generally fell on deaf ears; many pointed out that he was dividing the country like no other force has done before.
Actress, Elizabeth Banks, took to Twitter and, boy, did she let loose!
“I tried. I listened but the amount of BS and stunts and questions raised that will never be answered made me throw my remote and now I am listening to Tom Petty and am a better American for it. #SOTU.”
“PS not all immigrants are in murderous gangs, one did my hair color today – I don’t really need to say this, right?” she wrote.
Speaking of immigration policy, California Senator, Kamala Harris, also had something to add.
“Dreamers should not be used as a bargaining chip or held hostage in exchange for anti-immigrant policies,” she tweeted.
Trump is not doing so well on the personal front, either.
First Lady, Melania Trump, recently canceled a pre-planned trip to Davos, Switzerland. Instead, she made her way to West Palm Beach in Florida without her husband.
This marital rift widened after allegations of President Trump’s affair with porn star, Stormy Daniels.
It looks like the US president has failed in setting a good example so far. We hope 2018 picks up!
