When is the State of the Union Speech going to be delivered?

Recommended Posts

In 2019, Trump gave the speech on February 5th.

In 2020, Trump gave the speech on February 4th.

It is now February 26th.  Where is Biden's speech?

Biden's late stage dementia is showing.

You’re going to see less and less of Sleepy Joe . The State of the Union will be indefinitely postponed “due to COVID.” He’ll give few speeches, if any, and will make almost no public appearances. He’s so far gone.

Plus, they want to keep up the "extra security" through his address.  And, just to clarify, a new president doesn't give a SOTU address, because they just got there.  They give an address to a Joint Session of Congress ---- basically the same thing.

 

IN any case, I'm not holding my breath.  His appearances so far have been cringe-worthy.  I understand that they all use a TelePrompter, but he needs to learn not to stare at it.  Scan the room a bit.  C'mon, man!

What happened in Syria? Is it true Kamala and the democrats were unaware of the airstrike or is this some ploy to show Biden is in charge? If not then what? President Trump pretty much gave the military carte blanche...

There is no “State Of The Union” speech in the first year of a newly elected President, rather typically it’s an address to a joint session of Congress. Nor is there a requirement for a State Of The Union speech, it was just born of tradition.

The address fulfills the requirement in Article II, Section 3, Clause 1 of the U.S. Constitution for the President to periodically "give to the Congress Information of the State of the Union, and recommend to their Consideration such measures as he shall judge necessary and expedient."

 

I'd say that the Constitution doesn't "require"  a speech, but does state the above.  I suppose it could be done via letter, or small meetings with leadership.  But every president wants to get on primetime TV, for an hour or more, and speak directly to the citizens.

You made me look it up.  Thanks.  In 2017, Trump spoke on Feb 28th.  So for a first timer, it happens later in February.

They postponed Joe's State of the union speech to give his handlers time to fabricate lies and have him practice them so he doesn't  start speaking off the cuff and show everyone what a senile old man we have leading our country. Did you ever notice how Kamela hovers around joe like a vulture circling its prey until it dies, pretty sad.
