Nothing fuels the need to have a drink (or nine) more than an hour and a half speech about domestic and foreign policy to a bunch of olds in Congress.

Lucky for you, The Daily Caller News Foundation has a way for you to get through Tuesday night’s State of the Union address: A special, Trumped-tailored drinking game.

Our game is guaranteed to get you drunker than all the Chardonnay Hillary will be downing tonight.

Here are the rules, and we wish you the best at work on Wednesday morning.


  • The camera pans to First Lady Melania Trump and/or Barron Trump
  • The president tells you “believe me” or “that I can tell you,” drink up
  • CNN tries to fact-check Trump on chyron. Actually, just take a sip for any CNN chyron
  • The president talks about the stock market, the economy or the tax bill
  • Democrats are sitting while Republicans are applauding the president
  •  Trump gives one of his famous hand signals, like a “thumbs up,” the “OK” sign, or uses his hands to emphatically gesticulate
  • The president says “Fake News,” “Yuge,” “Tremendous,” or “Bigly”



  • A protester or member of Congress disrupts Trump’s speech
  • Trump says “bing”
  • Trump uses a nickname, like “Sloppy Steve,” “Pocahontas,” “Crooked Hillary,” “Lyin’ Ted,” “Rocket Man,” “Dicky Durbin,” and “Sneaky Dianne Feinstein.” If he uses another nickname, well, you know what to do
  •  Pelosi and/or Schumer are featured on the screen pouting

  • Trump talks about “the wall” 


  • Take a tequila shot when the camera shows a DREAMer. Be careful: A number of Democratic lawmakers are planning on bringing illegal immigrants as their plus-ones for a national television event in the U.S. Capitol

Once you are done, we recommend taking down a few glasses of water and maybe a couple of Advil.
