Thread: State of the Union 2019

    Exclamation State of the Union 2019

    Trump may go ballistic over this.

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Wednesday asked President Trump to postpone his State of the Union address or deliver it in writing because of the partial federal government shutdown.

    Some info from Wikipedia..

    The practice arises from a duty given to the president in the Constitution of the United States:

    He shall from time to time give to Congress information of the State of the Union and recommend to their Consideration such measures as he shall judge necessary and expedient.

    Article II, Section 3 of the U.S. Constitution

    More...
    A formal invitation is made by the Speaker of the House to the President several weeks before each State of the Union Address.[17][18]
    The reason the Speaker invites the President is because the address is held in the House chambers.
    Everything under heaven is in utter chaos; the situation is excellent.

    Pelosi is a functional retard.

    eta: Just googled "pelosi retarded" and this was the first result from urbandictionary.com:

    4
    Nancy Pelosi
    An irrational, bug-eyed liberal congresswoman whose IQ rivals that of the mildly retarded. Pelosi is frequently seen on TV jabbering non-sensically with a dazed expression on her face.
    Nancy Pelosi has the intellectual capacity of a potted plant.

    He'd just do it on the Senate floor instead. You are never going to take TV time from Trump. If he wants to be on TV, he'll be on TV, no matter where he is.

    Well Pelosi would actually have to rescind the invitation she issued on 03 January, during the shutdown, in order to stop the SOTU. She would look pretty foolish rescinding an invitation citing a shutdown that was going on when she issued it.

    Where do you see that?

    While Hoyer told reporters that the public should see Pelosi's letter as disinviting Trump from the traditional event, Pelosi separately later told reporters, "No, no, no" when asked if she was disinviting Trump.

    You continue to show your stupidity.

    There has only been one other time the SOU has been postponed, 1986, because of the space shuttle disaster.

    This is an extremely ignorant move by the democrats.

    Not sure why you'd create a false statement by me and put it in your signature. Seems kinda creepy...

    That is what I saw too, there is a lot of confusion about whether or not she did in fact rescind the invitation, some are saying yes some are saying no. I feel certain she wants to, but recognizes that politically it is probably not very astute for any number of reasons.
