National Youth Poet Laureate Amanda Gorman, 22, reads a poem at Joe Biden's inauguration.



  • So happy to see that in our society there's not only a place for bad rap but now also for bad poetry.

  • She is way over-rated. Any student of acting, and any woman who hosts a talk show, news show, gives the weather or gives CNN or Fox news or commentary, could read a poem just as effectively. Any theatre actress, theatre student or woman who's used to speaking to large groups can read a poem. Many school teachers as well. Don't ya'll think it's MUCH MORE than a coincidence that Amanda Gorman is YOUNG and PRETTY? Come ON, people, if she were middle aged or obese or homely, she would NOT have been selected to read a poem at the inauguration or SB, and you stinking know it. I also have to believe that is she were WHITE, she would NOT have been selected. But these days, young, pretty, and especially black -- gets you lots of privilege. But even if AG was white, I'd STILL be saying the same thing: There is just too much hullabaloo over her. For godsake, she recited a poem with passion. This is not a one-in-a-million capability. Any adolescent involved in school plays can do this.

  • 🖤💛💖Thank God for this unifying moment around the 🌏. Sorry for long winded comment- But I haven’t commented on TRvision yet because I’m not usually logged in. this is a channel I watch from time to time; 🏙🚅. ( mile high city) Since standing in front of the tv holding hands with my soulmate- as we watched - goosebumps on our arms...I feel much more hopeful thinking of Colorful Colorado’s beautiful statues. I often felt creative and hopeful but with undertones of despair in 2019 when I sat under some stoic, stunning, funny & also ugly statues as I wrote in journals, letters , bits of poems, and started to read Stephen Kings “ on writing” . Now I’m actually putting his advice to use “ for real”. He dared me on a certain page of the book that I was now RE- reading. I was under a tree in Gillette, WY reading, social distancing- so afraid of covid that I sat on my jacket in case there were droplets. ON THE GRASS IN GILLETTE . In Gillette Wyoming. I still feel I was right to do my research and trust the truth. I am “vulnerable “ which is a term some human beings with disabilities would like to change someday. 👛👛👛👛👛👛👛👛 Thank you soooo much Lord for #Amanda . Maybe we will get a handle on covid if more people built one another up & came alongside to understand. So far no COVID-19 and still so far not a vaccine option for me that I would feel comfortable with. Waiting for science. And my doc.

  • I find it truly unbelievable that since the inauguration I have not seen anything mentioning this poem in any way, shape, or form? That day it seemed any news channel I saw was enthusiastic or even gushed about how spectacular this reading was. And I agreed wholeheartedly! But since that day I’m sort of shocked not to see more ... I dunno, some sort of recognition at the very least. I know I interpreted the poem to be a monumental moment for not only the people of the USA but I would hope the world. Her words I hope and I do not doubt will one day be celebrated for being a sort of guiding light for those who find the truth in it.

  • Speech or poem...what a pretentious and insufferable individual!...just watching and listening to her for a couple of minutes was nauseatingly enough to know anyone who has to communicate with her needs to be aware of this individuals ‘neediness’ for ‘adoration’…’clever’, yes, but omg will she ever find anyone that will be able to love her a fraction of how much she loves herself…and at her age, that is worrying…she needs to get over herself or she’s in for a world of perpetual disappointment…that others will pay for! All the drivel…sorry comments here will not be helping this already confused poor girl…all written with the best intentions I’m sure.

    • @cnmmd qiuoo OK?…not really sure if you want me to reply…I’m happy someone has been able to express 'your' views for you?...but for ‘OMFG…I lurv me so much, I’m wet!’, I think she is going to have to work very hard to ensure her veneer doesn’t peel away while riding the wave of ‘tokenism’. It is possible that you are able to see something beyond the shallowness of a puddle that I see. But unfortunately, to me she comes across as more than a bit extreme, unhinged and a potential ‘bunny boiler’ for any poor guy that gets sucked in…but hey, we all see differences in each other and that is what makes the world so diverse and fun.
