Today is Feb 5, and I am Dennis Michael Lynch. The stories below are taking shape today, and to know about them will keep you as the smartest person in the room.
1- Trump takes on ‘radical left’ in defiant State of the Union address
President Trump went on the offensive against socialism and left-wing policies during a defiant third State of the Union address to Congress Tuesday night — drawing groans from Democrats in attendance and prompting a furious House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., to rip up her copy of Trump’s speech as soon as it concluded in a stunning scene.
DML: The best speech in State of the Union history. Thank you Nancy for making it unforgettable.
2- Pelosi speaks out
Asked about the moment she tore up Trump’s speech, Pelosi told Fox News she had destroyed the speech “because it was the courteous thing to do considering the alternatives.” She also said she was “trying to find one page with truth on it” but “couldn’t.”
The White House responded almost immediately by referencing several of the guests of honor whom Trump had introduced during the State of the Union address.
“Speaker Pelosi just ripped up: One of our last surviving Tuskegee Airmen. The survival of a child born at 21 weeks. The mourning families of Rocky Jones and Kayla Mueller. A service member’s reunion with his family,” the White House said in a tweet. “That’s her legacy.”
DML: I repeat what is written above: The best speech in State of the Union history. Thank you Nancy for making it unforgettable.
3- Senate hearing on impeachment today
Trump’s acquittal at his Senate impeachment trial on Wednesday is a lock. Maine Republican Sen. Susan Collins, a key swing vote in Trump’s impeachment trial, announced Tuesday she would vote to acquit on both articles of impeachment.
DML: In other words, Collins wants reelection.
4- Buttigieg and Sanders leading Iowa Democratic caucuses
Pete Buttigieg is narrowly leading the Democratic presidential field in the Iowa caucuses, according to initial returns that the party at last began reporting late Tuesday afternoon following a massive delay linked to technical breakdowns.
But Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders is close behind the former South Bend, Ind., mayor, with 71 percent of precincts reporting in the first batches released by the embattled state party. Sanders is also ahead in the popular vote, with 24 percent to Buttigieg’s 21 percent, Elizabeth Warren’s 19 percent and Joe Biden’s 15 percent. It was still not clear when the party would release the complete vote totals.

All 2,666 guests and 1,045 crewmembers aboard the Diamond Princess have been quarantined for over a day and are likely to remain for “at least 14 days as required by the Ministry of Health,” according to the cruise line.
