Former Speechwriters Take On The 2019 State of the Union


PRI’s Lance Izumi and Tim Anaya – both former speechwriters – weigh in on this week’s State of the Union address by President Trump and the Democratic response by Stacey Abrams.  They discuss the impact of the one-week delay, whether the President and Democrats were effective in messaging the shutdown and immigration, the most memorable moments and missed opportunities, the “human props”, and whether we’ll even remember the speech by the end of the week.
