The REAL State of the Union:

Tonight, Donald Trump will deliver his first State of the Union address. I'm sure he'll spend a lot of time reminding us that he thinks he's doing a great job. He'll talk about his wall that'll never be built.

But mark my words: He won't talk about preventing gun violence.

The real state of our union is this:

Less than one month into 2018, our country has suffered 11 school shootings.

22 mass shootings.

51 children shot.

179 police officers.

1,146 gun-related deaths.

Congressional Republicans, terrified of being singled out by the NRA, won't do a single thing to try to curb the epidemic of gun violence in our country. They're too afraid of the NRA to step up and help save people's lives.

That's not leadership.

Tonight, Donald Trump will talk for a long time. But he won't talk about the state of the union.
