Last night Rep. Bonnie Watson Coleman texted me (slight edits for quick typos):
‘Rosi, this State of the Union is Most boring, weakest snd poorly read ever. There were platitudes but no policy. He offered no plan, whether on reducing prescription cost or building infrastructure. His remarks on health care and protecting preexisting conditions were contrary to what his administration is actually doing. He spoke to regulatory reform, but for him, it means weakening environmental protections. He left out so many issues. This speech was long and boring. Ugh He’s a feelingless fraud.’
Like her fellow NJ colleague Mikie Sherrill, BWC was clad in suffragette white, and Donald Trump looked out on a sea of Democratic women in white, a rebuke, and evidence the balance has shifted. Some of my favorite photos from last night, including our women in white Mikie Sherrill and BWC and Nancy Pelosi’s guest, Loretta Weinberg.
