President Trump delivered the final State of the Union speech of his first term Tuesday night, and this year's speech "was extra weird, because in case you forgot, it's happening right in the middle of Trump's impeachment," Trevor Noah said in a special live Daily Show. "It's like you're in the middle of firing someone who's belligerent at work, but then you get interrupted by their birthday party."

At least 10 Democrats decided to skip "tonight's awkwardness" and boycott she speech, but those who did show up "got to witness a very awkward start to the State of the Union, where Nancy Pelosi tried to shake Trump's hand, but he was having none of it," Noah said. A "focused" Trump "dove right into his greatest hits," showing off "his player-hating degree" and continued obsession with former President Barack Obama, and "of course, no Trump speech would be complete without an absolute, blatant lie."
