Listen to this segment from the January 27th episode
President Trump's entire political persona is built on an image of disruption and rebellion against the status quo. So why in the name of all that is holy have the Democrats picked a legacy-name member of the House to deliver the response to State of the Union?
Rep. Joe Kennedy III, grandson of Robert Kennedy, represents a Massachusetts district in Congress. Picking a Congressman from a legacy political family to deliver the response to the ultimate anti-legacy, pro-disruption President in generations is a really dumb idea. Really, really dumb. The State of the Union address (and its response) is the flagship mass-market political moment of the year.
That they aren't putting the spotlight on a current governor or a recent Cabinet member makes it look rather like they're not taking this seriously. At all.
