Congressional Speech Alert

Our new President delivers his first speech to a joint session of Congress on Tuesday night, day after tomorrow. Done off the Teleprompter - more formal than his stream-of-consciousness-style rallies - it should be interesting to view.

Not considered a "State of the Union" speech, it nevertheless hits many of the same notes. Expect statements of where we are, what he has done to date, and what he plans to accomplish in the coming months with the help of Congress.

At least one source says the speech will start at 9 p.m. EST, which is 6 p.m. on the left coast where I'll view it. It will be followed by a Democrat response, which can be ignored safely.

Most networks will cover it. If you dislike Trump, you'll have many carriers from which to choose, all of whose post-speech talking heads will pan it, and him.

If you like Trump and wish him well, I'd suggest the Fox News coverage. They at least will have analysts who see the glass somewhat full, rather than mostly empty.
