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.

President Obama Gets Emotional Talking About Sandy Hook Victims While Announcing New Gun Control Orders (Video)

President Obama breaks down in tears while talking about the young Sandy Hook gun violence victims during his speech at the White House on Tuesday (January 5) in Washington, D.C.

The 54-year-old President unveiled new executive orders that day that require gun distributors to get a federal seller’s license and do background checks on all buyers.

“The constant excuses for inaction no longer do, no longer suffice,” the President said in his speech. “Instead of thinking of how to solve the problem, this has become one of our most polarized, partisan debates. We do need to feel a sense of urgency about it. In Dr. King’s words, we need to feel the fierce urgency of now.”

“The president can’t do it alone. The thing is, every gun-related death is preventable,” President Obama continued, before wiping tears from his face, “Every time I think about those kids, it gets me mad.”

“Congress still needs to act,” the President added. “The folks in this room will not rest until Congress does. Because once Congress gets on board with common-sense gun safety measures, we can reduce gun violence a whole lot.”

In attendance to watch the speech was comedian Amy Schumer, who has advocated for gun control since a shooting happened over the summer at a screening of her movie Trainwreck.
