President Trump is set to renew his call for unity during Tuesday's primetime State of the Union address, but prominent Democrats are already signaling they have no intention of reconciliation amid ongoing fights over border wall funding and Special Counsel Robert Mueller's Russia probe.
Historian Douglas Brinkley called Trump's upcoming address -- his first before a Congress not completely controlled by Republicans -- "a strange and bizarre State of the Union." It comes less than two weeks before a Feb. 15 funding deadline could lead to another partial federal government shutdown.
Also, this is a drinking game, any time anything above is mentioned, we all have to take a shot of liquor (of your choosing).

I'm thinking 2 shots will be taken of the 4 you posted. Not even a mild buzz from that stinker! Anyway, I'm eagerly awaiting the many possible REEEE moments the media may have afterwards.
After President Donald Trump finishes his State of the Union address, Stacey Abrams will have a turn in the national spotlight when she delivers the Democratic response.
The 45-year-old rising star in the Democratic Party narrowly lost a gubernatorial bid in the reliably red state of Georgia last fall, but rose to national prominence in the process. Abrams will have a high-profile platform Tuesday night to counter the President's message and outline a different vision for America. She will also make history as the first black woman to give the Democratic response to the State of the Union.
For each of the last three years, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) has delivered his own response to President Trump's State of the Union speech. Tonight he will do the same.
But this year, some Democrats have a problem with it. That's because the party chose Stacey Abrams, who recently lost her bid for governor of Georgia, to deliver the official Democratic response.
