**LIVE STICKY** Trump's Prime-Time Address to the Nation 1/8

Trump to give prime-time address to the nation — live updates

Updated on: January 8, 2019 / 5:41 PM / CBS News



President Trump will deliver his first primetime address from the Oval Office Tuesday, as the partial government shutdown over border wall funding continues into its third week.

It will be Mr. Trump's first prime-time Oval Office address since taking office. The president's remarks, expected to last roughly eight minutes, will air at 9 p.m. ET. Democrats have also requested time on the networks to respond to the president's remarks. Shortly after the president's remarks conclude, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer will deliver a response, expected to be about five minutes long.

Mr. Trump is demanding $5.7 billion for border wall funding, while Democrats say they won't fund his wall. It's unclear where the shutdown stalemate ends.

   I don't expect too much tonight, just more Kabuki.  But his 2nd SOTU on the 29th, I suspect, will be a doozy when he tells them all 'You're Fired'.

I'm expecting a lot tonight.  Game over.  He will declare a National Emergency.
"I believe in the United States of America as a Government of the people, by the people, for the people; whose just powers are derived from the consent of the governed; a democracy in a republic; a sovereign nation of many sovereign states; a perfect union one and inseparable; established upon those principles of freedom, equality, justice and humanity for which American patriots sacrificed their lives and fortunes. I therefore believe it is my duty to my country to love it; to support its Constitution; to obey it laws; to respect its flag; and to defend it against all enemies." -William Page

@corbe

Thanks, corbe.  An 8 min. talk at 9 pm ET.  That is 8 pm CT.
Be there at the beginning as 8 min. goes by fairly fast.  Make your drink of whatever before it starts or you miss it.

@mystery-ak

The 8 min. time limit for the speech was/is noted on another thread.

Weren't you asking about this, @Right_in_Virginia ?
I have decided to officially and formally not apologize. I'm not sorry at all, even slightly.

    Indeed, I especially want to convey my absence of remorse to anyone who was offended by what I said. If you are the sort of person who gets twisted into knots when someone articulates a point of view that differs from your own, then you are exactly the sort of person who should never receive an apology for a differing point of view — if I were offering one, which, again, I'm not.

Will Trump declare an emergency tonight? Only he knows for sure

By Jordan Fabian - 01/08/19 03:39 PM EST
   

The White House is playing coy over whether President Trump will declare a national emergency in a primetime address to the nation Tuesday that would allow construction of a wall on the Mexican border to move forward.

Trump previewed his remarks to a group of broadcast and cable-news anchors over a lunch of Caesar salad and chicken in the Roosevelt Room of the White House, but aides said he did not reveal any plans to take the controversial step of declaring a national emergency.

“He is not giving a likelihood. He is not saying yes or no. But he’s made very clear to you and the public last week that he is considering it,” White House counselor Kellyanne Conway told reporters after the lunch ended.

I’m guessing, out of the TV viewers tonight, 30% will think it was the greatest speech ever, 30% will think it was the worst, 25% will be ambivalent, and 15% will watch something else.
I disagree.  Circle gets the square.

Big question; why just 8 minutes?  Why not 10 or 15??  8 minutes is kind of strange don't you think?  Why would he even announce the amount of time he's going to be taking?

   Latest Polls reflect that only 26% will think it's the greatest speech ever and with RiV enjoying Dinner we're down to 25%, where is @LegalAmerican when you need her?

Dem senator jokes about holding drinking game for Trump's primetime address
By Avery Anapol - 01/08/19 08:38 PM EST

Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) joked about holding a drinking game during President Trump’s primetime address regarding the border wall on Tuesday night.

Murphy tweeted that he tried to convince Sen. Brian Schatz (D-Hawaii) to take a shot of beer with him “every time Trump says something made up.”

“Full disclosure, I tried to convince [Brian Schatz] to livestream a Trump’s Not Telling The Truth drinking game tonight,” Murphy tweeted. “Me and him, shot of beer every time Trump says something made up. He didn’t bite.”
