President Trump addressed congress for the first time on Tuesday night and for someone who based his presidential campaign on being the anti-politician, he sure sounded a lot like a politician.
See more on the speech:
But not everyone bought his statesman like speech such as Stephen Colbert who prepared for Trump's address, tweeting: Getting ready to watch Trump's address to a JOINT session of congress. There's a clue in this tweet about how we're going to get through it.

George Takei mentioned Ryan Reynolds, tweeting: Pay attention: "Access to healthcare" is not healthcare. I have "access" to Ryan Reynolds. But he's not covering me.

Trump, not known for his details, caused SNL Trump Alec Baldwin to quote part of his speech: "...the courage to share the dreams that fill our hearts."

House of Cards co-creator Beau Willimon isn't buying that either, tweeting: He doesn't get a gold star for platitudes that bear no resemblance to his policy. Media: compare the #JointAddress to the track record.
