Schmoozing in the House chamber after delivering his maiden State of the Union speech, a hot mic caught President Donald Trump telling a Republican lawmaker that he was "100 percent" in favor of making public a classified Republican intelligence memo. That was further than the White House had gone on the matter and not something Trump had said during the hour-plus speech he had finished moments earlier.Mrs. Trump traveled separately from her husband to the Capitol for the address.An hour and 20 minutes of President Donald Trump talking Tuesday was plenty long enough for House Democrats. Just before Trump finished, their leader, Rep. Nancy Pelosi, made eye contact with Rep. Joe Crowley of New York and pointed toward the back of the House chamber.Trump's first State of the Union address clocked in at about eight minutes shorter than the final such address by Clinton.Some Democrats couldn't hold back, especially when Trump mentioned immigration issues.They laughed out loud when Trump cast his immigration proposal as a down-the-middle compromise.And they groaned when Trump spoke of ending "chain migration".
