1. Trump from Michael_Novakhov (198 sites): Palmer Report: Eric Swalwell piles on after Nancy Pelosi rejects Donald Trump


Even though nothing works that way, Donald Trump decided to announce today that he’s going to simply show up to the House and give his State of the Union address without the House’s permission. Speaker Nancy Pelosi promptly told him to a take a hike accordingly. This prompted Democratic Congressman Eric Swalwell to pile on with one of his best lines yet.





There is nothing funny about Donald Trump’s government shutdown, or the nearly one million federal employees who have stopped getting their much needed paychecks, or any of the other negative consequences of Trump’s hostage-taking. But Trump loves to keep his braindead base fired up with simplistic zingers and such, so there is something to be said for firing back accordingly and exposing him for the witless one-note buffoon that he is.





Accordingly, after Nancy Pelosi rejected Donald Trump’s latest request to show up and give the State of the Union, Eric Swalwell fired off this zinger at Trump: “Take a hint. She’s just not that into you and your shutdown.”




Swalwell also went on to explain some of the logistical reasons why Donald Trump shouldn’t be allowed to give his State of the Union address while he’s refusing to allow employees to get their paychecks: “As the son of a cop, I deeply respect our law enforcement officers. No cop should have to work without pay to protect a ‘national security event’ speech. Let’s open up government. Until then, don’t risk your lives for free for me.”

1. Trump from Michael_Novakhov (198 sites): Palmer Report: Nancy Pelosi just beat Donald Trump at his own game


After Donald Trump shut down the government and took America hostage, Speaker Nancy Pelosi informed him that he would not be invited to show up to the House and give the State of the Union until he ended his shutdown. Trump thought he would be clever today by simply announcing that he’s going to show up and give it anyway. In response, Pelosi promptly beat him at his own game.




Although it’s widely regarded as mere tradition and formality, the President of the United States can’t actually enter the House chamber and give the State of the Union without the House’s permission. Pelosi took advantage of that fact this afternoon when she fired off a public letter to Donald Trump.






Pelosi’s brief letter stated in part: I am writing to inform you that the House of Representatives will not consider a concurrent resolution authorizing the President’s State of the Union address in the House Chamber until the government has reopened. Again, I look forward to welcoming you to the House on a mutually agreeable date for this address when government has been reopened.”



Donald Trump then threw a tantrum about it in front of the television cameras, which was a de facto admission that he has no idea what to do next. Nancy Pelosi has managed to further back Trump into a corner, at a time when his approval rating is at an all time low, and most Americans accurately blame him for his shutdown.
