KoopaTV Live Reactions: SOTU 2021 + Tim Scott's Response

By LUDWIG VON KOOPA - Technically not a State of the Union, but “President Biden Addresses a Joint Session of Congress”.

While KoopaTV is supposed to be a videogame commentary story, sometimes we get caught up in doing non-videogame-related things that we would rather not do, but must do, thanks to the TV in KoopaTV's name. Carrying America's State of the Union addresses every year is one of those things, since those end up on every channel.

KoopaTV's whole staff should be here to react to it, but they all fell asleep just at the THOUGHT of listening to President Joseph Robinette Biden talk for over an hour. However, since I've built up some STAMINA with my weekly fitness training (look at KoopaTV's Friday articles), I'm in the best physical condition to endure this onslaught of boredom and monotony. ...Still, it's quite the challenge. Check out my log and see if I survived.

Also, Senator Tim Scott of South Carolina gave the Republican Response to the address.


[8:55 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Joe Biden took over the TV part of KoopaTV. :(
[8:57 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bh87V3f0FaA
[8:57 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: 3.8k Likes and 12k Dislikes.
[8:57 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: He didn't even start yet.
[8:58 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...But they're probably right.
[8:59 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I can't tell if the White House stream won't start until Biden starts talking, or it's glitched.

Joe Biden Addresses a Joint Session of Congress, April 28, 2021
(There's no substantive difference between a State of the Union address and a Joint Session of Congress speech.)


[9:02 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: It's past the time it's supposed to start and it hasn't started, but... nothing happening is probably better.
[9:03 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...nevermind it's starting.
[9:04 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Just realised how maddening it is that in back of President Joseph Robinette Biden Jr. are Kamala Harris and Nancy Pelosi, two of my least favourite politicians!
[9:05 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I MISS PRESIDENT DONALD JOHN TRUMP.
[9:06 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Well, either way, these addresses are awful.
[9:07 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: The audience is all socially distanced, which should hopefully be an improvement in terms of how annoying the audience is.
[9:07 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: The President is really happy to have a woman as his vice president because she's a woman.
[9:09 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: He's talking about the WORST ATTACK ON OUR DEMOCRACY SINCE THE CIVIL WAR, which I don't think is true.
[9:09 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: But he says AMERICA IS ON THE MOVE AGAIN which doesn't mean anything.
[9:09 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: But I guess we're out of the DARK WINTER he's been talking about all last year.
[9:10 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Says Americans choose truth over lies, as opposed to "truth over facts."
[9:11 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Brags about all the Chinese Communist Party Virus vaccines that have been distributed; all I hear about the vaccines are how sick everyone feels getting them.
[9:12 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (Often more sick than they would've been if they just got the virus.)
[9:12 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (Unless you're Herman Cain age.)
[9:13 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "it's like every shot gives a dose of hope" Is the President quoting a vaccine provider, which is pretty vapid, but he's running with it.
[9:14 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: The White House stream has overlays of Dr. Anthony Fauci saying we're making progress, including that Americans should no longer be wearing masks outside if they're fully vaccinated.
[9:15 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: The President is referring to the checks sent to Americans as a relief check, even though it was an unnecessary economic stimulus check.
[9:17 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I feel like I should just take screenshots of the sign language woman.
[9:18 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Referencing competition with CHINA.
[9:18 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...huh.
[9:18 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "We have to do more than build back better... we have to build back... and build back better."
[9:18 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...I don't know.
[9:21 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Joe Biden keeps saying he's "creating jobs" but that's not necessary or true. But apparently part of the infrastructure plan is helping build out high-speed Internet in rural areas... and he says he's asking Vice President Kamala Harris to get that done.
[9:21 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Which probably means it'll be bungled and not happen.
[9:21 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Like how Kamala Harris couldn't secure people's rights when she was in power in California despite that being her office's obligation.
[9:22 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: President Joe Biden is actually talking to Congress and not to the American people ("check out your district" which is vocabulary only Congress uses, not normal people), which is technically the purpose of the speech.
[9:23 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: He keeps spamming the word "jobs" and says climate change is all about creating jobs.
[9:23 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (Government doesn't create jobs.)
[9:24 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: But, hey, he'd like wind turbine blades to be built in Pittsburgh instead of Beijing, so that's fine.
[9:25 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Buy American."
I feel like that'd been an American priority for a long time!
[9:25 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Was that not already the case when Joe Biden was Vice President?
[9:27 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: They're saying the majority of the infrastructure jobs he's creating doesn't require a college degree... So are those jobs very temporary or what?
[9:28 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (Wants minimum wage increase, which contradicts his stated goal of wanting more jobs.)

Director of the Domestic Policy Council Susan Rice lies about $15 minimum wage 2021
Why is Susan Rice citing lofty economic figures?
Ain't she the same person that lied about the September 11, 2012 Benghazi attack?
Why is she being presented as a credible person?


[9:30 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: He's calling for a National Institutes of Health advanced research centre to treat cancer and Alzeimers and whatever.
[9:31 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Let's end cancer as we know it."
[9:31 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: He was in charge of President Barack Hussein Obama's cancer commission thing from a previous State of the Union.
[9:32 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Something about how we need to be united so we can compete with China and the rest of the world.
[9:32 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: And if Americans are divided, we can't beat China.
[9:33 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Sounds like a good way to scapegoat foreign nations which is how you get into wars with other countries to just establish a common enemy.
[9:33 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: He wants a "once in a generation investment in families" to compete with China, or something.
[9:34 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: 21st-century that and 21st-century this.
[9:35 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Joe Biden is saying 12 years of education isn't enough in the 21st century, which contradicts what he was saying a few minutes ago about all of the jobs he's making that doesn't require a college degree.
[9:37 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Alongside free community college and pre-kindergarden, he wants free childcare.
[9:37 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (Up to the age of five.)
[9:38 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Wants government-mandated paid family and medical leave, which many companies already offer as a competitive benefit.
[9:38 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: On top of that, expanded tax credits just for having children.
[9:40 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "We know how to do this! [...] The last President had [lowering prescription drug prices] on his agenda!"
[9:40 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Apparently you guys DON'T know how to do that.
[9:41 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I've been hearing America wants Medicare to negotiate drug costs since KoopaTV was founded 8 years ago.
[9:41 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "We've talked about it long enough, Democrats and Republicans. Let's get it done this year."
[9:42 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Demands corporate America and the wealthiest 1% pay "their fair share".
[9:42 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (What does that mean?)
[9:43 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Someone's phone in the chamber was going off or something.
[9:44 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Joe Biden claims millionaires and billionaires "cheat on their taxes."
If that's the case, why isn't the IRS auditing them if they're "cheating"?

Joe Biden Janet Yellan want to raise taxes State of the Union 2021 to Congress
If this was an actual problem, then the correct solution is to lower the middle-class workers’ taxes, not make investing more difficult.
It's not good when politicians want to demonise investment, when it's the way to achieve economic mobility.


[9:46 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: This has been nothing but class warfare against wealthier people for several minutes.
[9:48 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I think he's shifting to foreign policy but I'm not sure.
[9:50 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Audience is falling asleep, like me.

Sleeping members of Congress Joe Biden State of the Union 2021
No one wants to be here.


[9:50 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I'm worried the sign language woman is locked in a room or something.
[9:52 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "I made it very clear to Putin, we're not going to seek ex-esk-ekk-'scuse me... escalation."
[9:53 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "American leadership means ending the forever war in Afghanistan."
[9:53 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Under former President Donald John Trump, that'd be over in a few days.
[9:54 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Really hope he doesn't want to end a war for the purpose of starting a new war somewhere else.
[9:55 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "White supremacy terrorists...we won't ignore that either."
[9:56 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: He's implying Derek Chauvin is a white supremacist.
[9:56 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Joe Biden says he believes the vast majority of cops are honourable and he "knows them."
[9:57 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Arbitrary police reform deadline of "the first anniversary of George Floyd's death."
[9:58 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Arbitrary anniversaries are wrong when Nintendo does them, and they're wrong when the legislative process does them.
[9:59 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "To all transgender Americans watching at home, especially young people... you're brave, and I want you to know your president has your back."
[10:00 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Joe Biden believes the only way that domestic abusers can kill their partner is by shooting them.
[10:00 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Just a few minutes ago, he just spoke about how tragic it was that Derek Chauvin's knee killed George Floyd.
[10:02 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Joe Biden wants to somehow eliminate do-it-yourself gun creating.
[10:03 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Joe Biden believes that gun ownership is solely for hunting.
[10:05 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Joe Biden is now using this part of the speech to advocate for amnesty for illegal immigrants and allow them to legally vote.
[10:06 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Should've gotten a wall built.
[10:09 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Blah blah democracy still works, mostly peaceful Capitol protesters bad.
[10:09 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "We the people are the government!"
[10:09 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...huh?
[10:10 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "I can say without ABSOLUTE CONFIDENCE that I've never been more CONFIDENT in the American people" or something.
[10:11 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: How long is he going to keep doi-...
[10:11 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Oh he's done.
[10:11 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "THANK YOU FOR YOUR PATIENCE!" Is how he ended it, 'cause I guess he knows that was long.

State of the Union 2021 Congress Joe Biden leaving chamber
RIP sign language woman. While Joe Biden and the Congress members can leave, she cannot...


[10:12 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Sign language woman just starting at the screen, looking like she wants to sleep.
[10:13 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: The stream ended but she's still trapped. Poor woman.




[10:24 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8qd_CcL4bRA
[10:24 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Republican Senator Tim Scott is supposed to give a reply.
[10:24 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I'm worried he fell asleep too.
[10:26 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: There he is.
[10:26 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: He looks frozen.
[10:26 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: But he's blinking.
[10:26 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: SENATOR TIM SCOTT FROM THE GREAT STATE OF SOUTH CAROLINA.

Senator Tim Scott Republican Response to Joe Biden 2021
Hey, Tim Scott! It's been a while.


[10:27 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "His speech was full of good words."
[10:27 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "I won't waste your time with finger-pointing and partisan bickering, you can get that on TV anytime."
[10:27 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Including on KoopaTV!
[10:28 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Instead he's wasting his time with his life story.
[10:28 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: *our time
[10:29 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "becoming a Christian changed my life"
[10:29 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: He's talking about how schools should re-open, which wasn't something Joe Biden talked about really.
[10:29 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Talking about school choice, an ignored topic. (Though it should be a state issue, not a federal one.)
[10:31 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Tim Scott is pro-high speed broadband.
[10:31 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Democrats won't even build bridges to build bridges! Only 6% of the infrastructure plan goes to building roads and bridges!"
[10:32 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Well, I like Tim Scott's one-liners a bit better.
[10:32 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Talking about packing the Supreme Court, which Joe Biden didn't do except for greeting the Chief Justice at the start.
[10:33 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Tim Scott talking about how he's been discriminated against based on race, and pulled over for being black.
[10:33 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Which Joe Biden didn't talk about besides briefly talking about white supremacy.
[10:33 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: But Tim Scott has been called an Uncle Tom and worse by Joe Biden's party.
[10:34 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Tim Scott created a proposal for police reform, but Democrats filibustered it to oblivion.
[10:34 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Because they'd rather campaign on the issue than solve the problem, which is true.
[10:35 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "America is not a racist country."
[10:35 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Republicans support making it easier to vote and harder to cheat."
[10:35 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (Referencing how Democrats are against voter ID.)
[10:38 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Tim Scott crediting the Trump Administration for Operation Warp Speed and getting the vaccines ready, which Joe Biden didn't want to do.
[10:38 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (Though I dunno how safe those vaccines are.)
[10:39 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Tim Scott excited about how during the Trump administration, wages grew faster at the bottom of the ladder vs. the top of the ladder.

Republican Tim Scott South Carolina raising arm response to State of the Union 2021
Tim Scott using his arm to demonstrate rising wages.


[10:39 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (Probably because rich people don't become rich from wages but from other sources, but I'll take it.)
[10:40 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: He's closing.
[10:41 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "May the Lord bless you and keep you" and a bunch of other words that I can't transcribe quick enough.
[10:41 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Good night and god bless the United States of America."
[10:41 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Well, at least he was concise and well spoken.
[10:41 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Unlike the President.
[10:41 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: BYE.



Ludwig hopes his live reaction was at least more interesting than President Joseph Robinette Jr.'s speech. Otherwise, he failed in his mission. Not that he really had a mission, since this was forced on all TV stations, including KoopaTV, whether KoopaTV wanted it or not. Best to make the most of a bad situation.


The State of the Union before this was in 2020, and that featured a completely different president! ...Which doesn't change that State of the Unions suck.

  1. On the cancer issue. Joe Biden promised that he would find the cure for cancer if he got elected. But just like any amendment, no promise is absolute.

    1. He still has over 3 years to cure cancer!

      ...Well, unless Kamala ends his term early.
