At Tuesday evening’s State of the Union address, President Obama touched briefly upon a stream of topics. The broadcast signaled Obama’s official start to an end for his White House era. After discussing gun control, global warming, and ISIS, Obama turned the subject to finding a cancer cure. This presented a warm moment with Joe Biden while standing in this scenario together for the last time.
Obama found some unexpected interest from Kim Davis and a curmudgeonly poker face from Paul Ryan. Once Ryan left his seat, he tweeted the angst he didn’t show onstage. Ryan said he wasn’t “disappointed” by the speech. However, this statement was part of a larger, cattier one.
