Media Wonders Why Trump Didn’t Talk About Russia

Shortly after President Donald Trump’s State of the Union address Tuesday night, media members began actively wondering why he didn’t mention the Russia investigation.

President Richard Nixon infamously referenced Watergate during one of his State of the Union addresses, and the media began wondering why Trump wasn’t referencing the investigation into his own campaign.

NBC’s Brian Williams brought up Russia during a post-SOTU interview, prompting Andrea Mitchell to take the bait and suggest that Russia is “overhanging everything.”


“Nothing on Vlad or the investigation,” investigative reporter Christopher Heath.

Rebecca Ballhaus wondered if the SOTU address was the longest that Trump has spoken without trying to debunk the Russia investigation.

“Trump completely ignored the elephant in the room — the Russia scandal,” Lynnette Khalfani Cox asserted.

Democrat Mike Quigley even got in on the Russia action, along with the Pennsylvania Senate Democrats.
