The Democratic response to President Trump’s speech was underwhelming at best — even MSNBC criticized it — and former Democratic Gov. Steven Beshear’s speech was rocky from the start.
To the confusion of many viewers, he introduced himself as a Democrat — then a Republican.
“I’m here in Lexington, Kentucky some 400 miles from Washington at a diner with neighbors, Democrats and Republicans, where we watched the president’s address. I’m a proud Democrat, but first and foremost I’m a proud Republican, and Democrat and mostly American,” said Beshear.
