A version of this story originally appeared on EW.com.
But celebrities were less convinced – greeting the president’s words with a mix of skepticism, sarcasm, and vitriol.
Twitter said it was the most-tweeted joint address to Congress ever, with more than 3 million messages sent during the speech.
In one tweet, Oswalt wrote, “Oh s— I shouldn’t have pledged to drink every time there’s tentative applause.”
Oswalt also slammed Trump for “exploiting” the death of Navy SEAL Ryan Owens, who was killed during a raid on al Qaeda in Yemen in January. Owens’ father told the Miami Herald he refused to see Trump when his son’s body was flown back to the United States. Owens’ widow, Carryn Owens, sat with Trump’s daughter Ivanka and got a standing ovation.
Trump praised Ryan Owens in his speech, saying “Ryan died as he lived: a warrior, and a hero – battling against terrorism and securing our nation.”
Oswalt responded: “I cannot STAND draft-dodgers sending men to their deaths and then exploiting the grieving aftermath. F— you, Donald.”
“I did try and f— her. She was married,” the quote read. “I moved on her like a b—, but I couldn’t get there. And she was married. Then all of the sudden I see her, she’s now got the big phony tits and everything, she’s totally changed her look. I’ve gotta use some Tic Tacs, just in case I start kissing her. You know I’m automatically attracted to beautiful — I just start kissing them. It’s like a magnet. Just kiss. I don’t even wait. And when you’re a star they let you do it. You can do anything. Grab them by the p—. You can do anything.”
Eichner captioned the post, “Is this in your speech?”

The president’s allies – and his family – however praised him. House Speaker Paul Ryan called the address a “home run.”
