Dems react to State of Union (1)The left-wing media was pulling out its hair after President Donald Trump delivered a State of the Union speech that scored well with the public. 

The runaway reactions varied from the ACLU complaining about how many times the President used the word "America" to MSNBC host Joe Reid suggesting that words such as church, America, and family are code words for white nationalism.  

Mirroring the complaining from Reid, a reporter from far-left news outlet The Young Turks suggested Trump filled his speech with "cultural trigger words" such as "flag," "God," "country," and "family."

Trump's SOTU Jan 2018"These are things that most Americans agree with," responds Mike Ciandella of the Media Research Center, a media watchdog that monitors left-wing bias.

"Whether you're Republican or Democrat, you care about your family," he says. "These are not things that are specifically to the fringe of the Right."

A post-speech poll by CBS News found that eight of 10 Americans who watched the address said Trump was attempting to unite the country rather than divide it, and two-thirds said it made them feel proud.

After the speech, Reid also complained live on MSBNC that Trump used his speech to talk about cracking down on the violent MS-13 street gang.

MS-13, she said, is a "gang nobody that doesn't watch Fox News has ever heard of, so he makes it sound like they're the biggest threat."

Dems reax to SOTU 2018A post-State of the Union story by The New York Times reports that Long Island has witnessed 17 murders by MS-13 gang members, most of them illegal immigrants in the span of a year and a half.

The parents of two Long Island girls murdered by MS-13, meanwhile, were seated in the gallery Tuesday night as guests of Trump.

"America is grieving for you," Trump told the parents during his address.

MSNBC, meanwhile, scored the lowest ratings of the night behind first-place Fox News followed by NBC, CBS, ABC, Fox, and CNN.

The problem with the left-wing talking heads, says Ciandella, is that they surround themselves with people who hold the same liberal views

"And when you're in the bubble like that, and you just always talk to people who agree with you," he observes, "your outlook on the world just starts to fit that."
