State Of The Union 2016 Address Live Stream, Full Text Transcript: Watch Obama SOTU Speech Online

President Barack Obama will give his final State of the Union address on Tuesday night, and many analysts are predicting that the president will try to convince an uncertain electorate about the progress he has made during his two terms in office, as well as lay out the final things he proposes accomplishing over the coming year.


The 2016 State of the Union address will be aired on a variety of networks including CNN, Fox News, MSNBC, ABC, NBC, CBS and Fox. The address will also be available to watch online through live stream (details below).

A lot of attention this New Year has been focused on the presidential primaries coming up in Iowa and New Hampshire, and the amount of media attention on the elections will only ramp up further from here.

That may mean that this is a final chance for Obama to grab the attention of the nation before election season really and truly ramps up and the focus switches more to who will replace him in the Oval Office.

On Monday, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest spoke of the SOTU address as "this one moment where the country sort of acknowledges that the president gets an hour to assess the condition of the country and to offer up a prescription for confronting the challenges and capitalizing on the opportunities."

Obama aides have insisted that this year's State of the Union address will not be like others before it, and that it will have a "non traditional" feel to it.

However, just how "non traditional" the address will be remains to be seen, as most believe Obama will have to spend a substantial amount of time addresses issues that are clearly dividing the nation; including gun control policies, immigration reform, how the administration is tackling ISIS, as well as numerous Middle East issues and the global climate pact signed in Paris.


This divide is clearly shown simply among the guests that Democrats and Republicans are inviting to the address. First Lady Michelle Obama has 23 guests in her reserved section, which includes a Syrian refugee, and one of the plaintiffs from the lawsuit that sparked the legalization of gay marriage across the United States in June 2015.

Meanwhile, Republicans have invited Kim Davis, a clerk from Rowan County, Ky. who was sent to jail after refusing to issue marriage licenses to gay and lesbian couples, insisting that she was unable to act against her faith and beliefs.
