Donald Trump's first joint address to Congress was described as lacking substance, style, and specifics. Also, lots of lies.
Reviews are in, and they aren't good. Critics point to out how Trump failed to provide any details of his plans, while engaging in more fearmongering and outright lies (like taking credit for jobs he didn't create).
Oh hey, Trump finally got around to condemning hate crimes (after, ya know, suggesting TODAY that Jewish folks were calling in bomb threats)

Great Speech! Once again the Media Liars didn't gaslight President Trump into supporting legalization of illegal immigrants. Thank God!
