President Trump's address to a joint session as Congress was well-received by supporters, but got a harsh reaction from celebrities.
The speech was markedly more optimistic than Trump's inaugural address. CNN commentator Van Jones said Trump "became president" as he honored Carryn Owens, widow of fallen Navy SEAL Ryan Owens.
But it was still blasted by longtime Trump critics.
