I believe Trump will shift and take a more "stateman like" approach in his speech. He has been vilified so much in the media, that he will try prove them wrong by playing the "nice guy" role with a call for bipartisanship.
Indeed, this Washington Post article quoting Trump aides says "President Trump intends to offer an “aspirational” and “visionary” path for the nation at the State of the Union" while calling on Congressional legislators to work with him on initiatives around infrastructure and health care, immigration enforcement, trade policies with China, and intervention in Venezuela.
If he remans on script, the media afterward will give him "raves" for being less confrontational than what you typically see in his rallies and Tweets. However, if he uses one or more of those many obedient Republican applauses to go off the teleprompter script, who knows what could happen? It doesn't take much to set him off on a tangent. Will we hear,"build the wall and crime will fall?"
I will watch the speech out of curiosity as to how the narcissistic, devious sociopath will perform after being knocked down by Nancy Pelosi and vilified by Ann Coulter -- and how the Republicans will respond to the master con artist's one liners, cheering mildly or perhaps wildly at times to give the viewing audience the appearance of party unity.
It will be a lesson in feeding propaganda to the uninformed.
