Talk about trying a “Hail Mary”! Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi has lost her mind.
She all but admits she’s lost the war to President Trump.
According to Fox News:
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Wednesday urged President Trump to delay his State of the Union address until after the partial government shutdown ends, or to consider submitting the address in writing.
Pelosi made the suggestions in a letter to Trump.
She wrote: “Sadly, given the security concerns and unless government re-opens this week, I suggest that we work together to determine another suitable date after the government has re-opened for this address or for you to consider delivering your State of the Union address in writing to the Congress on January 29th.”
What could this woman possibly be thinking?
You have a State of the Union regardless of circumstances in the country. But Pelosi pretends that she’s concerned about the president’s safety, as the government is understaffed. Who knew?
Because only a handful of people are missing the government. Regardless, though the government is shutdown, we have lots of good news to report. And Republicans know this.
Republicans offered “politi-speak” in condemning Pelosi.
“It is unbecoming of a speaker to do this,” House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., said Wednesday.
Later, House Minority Whip Steve Scalise, R-La., urged the president to press forward with the speech.
“For Nancy Pelosi to withdraw the offer shows insecurity on their part and that they can’t defend their open borders policy,” Scalise told reporters on Capitol Hill Wednesday. “The country deserves to hear from the president. … to think the speaker would lock the doors and prevent people from hearing from the president of the United States.”
As if Pelosi or anybody else could prevent Trump from delivering a SOTU?
Talk about giving the Greatest Showman on Earth the ability to take advantage of the media, Pelosi just handed President Trump a gift: the Democrats’ asses on a platter.
But who can blame Pelosi for trying? If I were she, I would try to prevent the president from having the national stage given his successes.
Who knows what Trump will do?
He might play a video of Democrats previous statements about protecting the border and building a wall. Can you imagine what their reaction would be?
Certainly the president has much to brag about with the economy. Record employment continues, and wages continue to rise. We’re coming off another stellar retail year with record sales.
After all the discussion of doom and gloom with the “trade war”, President Trump is undoubtedly winning. We recently reported on China suffering a huge downturn in exports, while imports are rising.
Anybody heard any saber-rattling from North Korea? And what about Putin?
President Trump will deliver his SOTU address. And it won’t be good for Democrats.
Trump has an uncanny way of reaching the American people, and he only getting better at it. And that’s why Democrats are actually attempting to shut him down.
Recently, CNN discussed delaying broadcast of his White House press conference on the shutdown and the border wall. They accused him of lying, thus rationalizing their need to censor his speech.
But what CNN and other fake news outlets still don’t understand is they are considered liars, not Trump.
