WASHINGTON, D.C. (The Adobo Chronicles) – President Barack Obama delivers his State of the Union Address (SOTU) before the U.S. Congress and the American people at 9pm Eastern time on Tuesday, January 20. He is expected to focus on middle-class economics.
Unlike in previous SOTU’s, this year’s will have a new feature – the red carpet ceremonies – much like the Academy Awards (Oscars) red carpet.
The Republican-controlled Congress recently voted to hold the pre-speech fashion ceremonies, something that it copied from the Philippines’ State of the Nation Address (SONA).
All eyes will be focused on what Michelle Obama will be wearing. Or Michele Bachmann for that matter.
If you don’t have cable TV, you are out of luck. The SOTU red carpet ceremonies will be shown exclusively on CNN beginning at 7pm Eastern. The CNN red carpet coverage will be hosted by CNN anchor Don Lemon and the late Joan Rivers’ daughter Melissa.
