President Donald Trump arrived today at the Capitol to deliver his annual State of the Union address. In a release before his speech, the White House said Trump would call for a new, bipartisan plan for the country.

“The agenda I will lay out this evening is not a Republican agenda or a Democrat agenda. It is the agenda of the American people,” an excerpt read.

And yet, all everyone could talk about was his tie. Because Trump waltzed into a joint session of Congress, and his neckwear was a bit askew.

It became an obsession for Twitter.

As the speech has worn on, Trump’s tie pivoted somewhat back to center.

But for a brief 20 minutes, Trump was leaning left.
