But not everyone was pleased with Obama’s speech. Counterterrorism expert Dr. Sebastian Gorka blasted President Obama for last night appearing to downplay the threat of ISIS, saying that the president “is living in a fantasyland” while jihadist activity in America soars.
Obama in yesterday’s State of the Union address said that ISIS does not threaten our national existence. “No ‘existential threat’? Really?” said Gorka. “Ask the 6 million people who now live on ISIS territory. Ask the people who’ve been decapitated, crucified, or burnt alive. Ask the people who went to that Christmas party in San Bernardino.”
President Obama’s final State of the Union address was more like “a state of denial,” Ted Cruz said on “The Kelly File” tonight.

He said the fact that Iran felt comfortable seizing U.S. sailors and ships goes to show the “incredible weakness” of Obama’s foreign policy.
A mother whose police officer son was killed by a drunk-driving illegal immigrant is disappointed President Obama didn’t address illegal immigration head-on during his State of the Union. Obama only said in last night’s address that he would continue trying to fix the nation’s “broken immigration system.”
Mary Ann Mendoza said on Fox and Friends that she was hoping for some kind of acknowledgment from the president that there’s a “big problem” with the nation’s border with Mexico. “Our politicians can’t even take a stance and say the word ‘illegal immigrant,’ much less enforce our borders,” Mendoza said.
