As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Pelosi Suggests Trump Scrap His State of the Union Address

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi Wednesday said President Trump should consider scheduling the State of the Union address after the shutdown is over or send it in writing, citing security concerns.

I’d say the main thing going on here, beside a gratuitous insult, is that Pelosi wants to deny Trump the biggest soapbox of the year to make his case on the shutdown and the border wall.

“Sadly, given the security concerns and unless government re-opens this week, I suggest that we work together to determine another suitable date after government has re-opened for this address or for you to consider delivering your State of the Union address in writing to the Congress,” she wrote Trump.

Department of Homeland Security Secretary KirstJen Nielsen said security was no problem.

“The Department of Homeland Security and the US Secret Service are fully prepared to support and secure the State of the Union. We thank the Service for their mission focus and dedication and for all they do each day to secure our homeland,” Nielsen tweeted.

  1. Nancy makes me yawn….

    Have the Senate Leader or VP invite Trump to use the Senate chamber… put the Senators in the gallery (if there is on) and fill up the main seating with Angel Families representing each of the 50 states… where they can put pix of lost loved ones to opioids or illegal on citizen murder or rape or whatever… color code the frame of each picture so America can see deaths from drunk driver illegals.. murder or rape …..or the drugs that pour over the boarder… do it at a hotel or stadium if the senate thing is outside of protocol…

  2. Another topic where she is more informed than the US SS organization that actually provides the security. Just as she knows more about border security than DHS or CBP.

  3. Another thing going on is MSM is reporting concern about the Super Bowl in Atlanta on Feb, 3rd. They claim TSA workers are not showing up to work at the airport.

    • Good! For years DHS has been conducting exercises and miss 95% of banned stuff.

      Madame Mao OC screams, “Abolish ICE!”

      Abolish TSA. It does nothing to protect travelers.

  4. The real reason is that Nancy has been on a bender since the shutdown and won’t be able to sober up by the time the speech is given.

  5. We know that pelosi’s fear of possible “unsafe conditions” at the State of the Union address is not about concern for our President but for herself only.
