Celebs React to Obama's Final State of the Union Address

President Barack Obama delivered his final State of the Union address on Tuesday night (January 12) and tons of celebs are tweeting praise for his speech.

One line that is resounding with a lot of people on social media is this one: “When politicians insult Muslims, when a mosque is vandalized, or a kid bullied, that doesn’t make us safer. That’s not telling it like it is. It’s just wrong. It diminishes us in the eyes of the world. It makes it harder to achieve our goals. And it betrays who we are as a country.”

Celebs such as Kerry Washington, Amy Schumer, Ellen DeGeneres, and more have tweeted their thoughts on the speech, which almost ended in a Friday Night Lights moment.

    such complete bull and lies. How about talking about #geoengineering #fukushima and the other huge issues we are facing that are being totally ignored . Truly disgraceful.

    True. Its beyond ridiculous. Same old lies, same old BS. America is destroyed and he has had a huge role in that, end of story.

    I agree. I am personally a liberal democrat and had hopes for Obama but he has turned out to be spineless, a terrible leader, and things have gotten much worse in the country and the world since he became pres. He pretends he is doing good and spews all this bull but really he is doing bad in so many ways. I voted for him twice and now he disgusts me- but the republicans are way worse, even!

    *”Thank you Barack. Thank you. One more year to go. Let’s get criminal justice reform done this year! #SOTU”*

    Mr. Simmons, what about Justice for victims of Maternal Oppression & Child Abuse who often develop into depressed teens and adults requiring CJ intervention?

    Is there no justice for Kendrick Lamar and Tupac, both men rapping or speaking about adult and childhood depression, as well as experiencing suicidal thoughts?

    How about Justice for Freddie Gray, deprived of experiencing a safe, fairly happy American kid childhood by an irresponsible maternal caregiver who ignored her parental and societal obligation to place the well being of her child above all else.

    Then there is Baltimore teen Michael Singleton. After being introduced to a life of hardship and struggle by a totally irresponsible mom, young Michael became so depressed he joined his depressed classmates in The Street, attempting to cause grave bodily harm to police responsible for protecting his neighbors from depressed kids like Michael.

    I am depressed too. Depressed that Americans like Russell Simmons willfully ignore the substantial population of “living wild” (child abuse victim Kendrick Lamar’s characterization of his mom’s child-rearing lifestyle) married and single moms who for decades have selfishly ignored the welfare and emotional well being of the children they introduce to life.

    What depresses me even more is the reason many people willfully ignore “living wild” parenting…because without a significant population of “living wild” parents raising “living wild” children, maturing into “living wild” teens and adults, people like Mr. Simmons would have to find a new line of work and venue for gaining fame.
