Nancy Pelosi who is refusing to provide a little over $5 billion to secure the southern border from drug traffickers, terrorists, gang members and other third world filth now wants to delay the State of the Union over “security concerns.”
A grand Washington ritual became a potential casualty of the partial government shutdown Wednesday as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi asked President Donald Trump to postpone his Jan. 29 State of the Union speech. She cited concerns about whether the hobbled government can provide adequate security, but Republicans cast her move as a ploy to deny Trump the stage.
In a letter to Trump, Pelosi said that with both the Secret Service and the Homeland Security Department entangled in the shutdown, the president should speak to Congress another time or he should deliver the address in writing. Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen denied anyone’s safety is compromised, saying both agencies “are fully prepared to support and secure the State of the Union.”
Trump did not immediately respond to the request and the White House, thrown off guard by the move, had yet to offer any official response hours later. But GOP allies accused Pelosi of playing politics, with Republican Rep. Steve Scalise tweeting that Democrats are “only interested in obstructing @realDonaldTrump, not governing.”
Pelosi, who issued the customary invitation to Trump weeks ago, hit the president in a vulnerable place, as he delights in taking his message to the public and has been preparing for the address for weeks.
This is just political bullshit. There is no reason to believe that the State of the Union speech would be less secure with the government shutdown going on. She’s pulling this out of her ass.
President Trump should reject her request and tell her to go pound sand. If she’s so concerned about security she should quit playing games and fund the small amount of money Trump is requesting to secure the southern border.
In other news, Pelosi has been found to be a retarded and senile old hag who has no business holding any position in government. It’s a miracle that the skin hasn’t melted off her face yet. I think her face is made of wax.
