Ahead of Obama's State of the Union Speech, Twitter Sums Up The SOTU in Three Words

Share

President Barack Obama will be delivering his fifth State of the Union address this evening, which will no doubt be live-tweeted by armchair pundits around the country. It's been an interesting year for the president: 2013 marked the introduction of Obama's landmark healthcare reform, the Affordable Care Act, but was also the year the government shut down in a bickering disgrace. In all the excitement in the lead-up to the big speech, a new hashtag has started trending on Twitter: #SOTUinthreewords. We scoured Twitter and found the funniest, the strangest, and the outright ugly reactions to the call for three words to sum up the state of the union.

As Bustle reported, we can plan to expect a few things from President Obama:

If you're planning to tune in to the speech tonight, don't forget to play the State of the Union drinking game, which includes drinking 'Murican beer and Cuba Libres. What are you three words for the State of the Union? Let us know @bustle.
