After crisply reviewing the disappointments of the Super Bowl, Stephen Colbert offers his own preview of our next big national event: Trump’s State of the Union address tonight.

The White House has leaked word that the presidential speech will showcase a familiar theme: “Choosing Greatness.” As Colbert notes, there are other possible choices with Trump, which might include “Selecting Mediocrity,” Settling For Racist,” or simply “Fish.”

Trump himself has declared that he will talk about “unity,” a topic that Stephen fears may pose a challenge for this president. Trump’s most recent tweets about his border wall suggest the “dimensions” of the problem.

Click and laugh.
