Joe Biden finally addressed a Joint Session of Congress last night nearly 100 days into his Presidential term.
To me, it was a theater of the absurd.
Start with the fact that Nancy Pelosi only allowed 200 people into the House chamber to view the speech in a room that holds 1,600 individuals.
Social distance was in full effect even though every person in attendance was required to be fully vaccinated against Covid in order to attend.
This Congressman shared his experience when he arrived for the speech.
Looking at the television audience for Biden's speech it is also hard to see how this man garnered more votes for President than anyone in history.
Overnight ratings of the major networks show that 11.6 million viewers tuned into the speech. This total does not include cable outlets so the final number will undoubtedly be higher.
However, compare that number with the ratings for Trump's State of the Union speeches.
