It's being reported that Democrats are looking to hurt/embarrass President Trump by bringing to his address to a joint session of Congress people whom they think or will claim will be harmed by Trump's policies. One of those groups is the "LGBT community". Joining us at 7:20 AM will be Congressman Jared Polis, Democrat of Boulder, a co-chairman of the House's LGBT Equality Caucus, to talk about his plans for the event, as well as other interesting stuff.
I understand that Donald Trump and his team don't care much about how people on the left feel about him right now. Their goal is to make Trump's supporters feel that he's honoring his promises. But Trump does have to realize that as his behavior causes reactions which hurt the business of others, he may lose allies. Of course the left understands this too and will do everything the can to demonize anyone who appears to offer any support of Trump. Here are a couple of examples:

Some people think that Budweiser is attempting to generate controversy by jumping into the national conversation about immigration (not that there is a very big one about legal immigration right now) on the side of immigrants.

But I think it's quite a good commercial, well made, visually gripping, and tells its story well in 60 seconds.
