Trump concedes to Pelosi: State of the Union postponed until after shutdown — as Twitter unleashes the laughs!
Don’t tell his deplorables, but Trump looks very weak…
President Donald Trump said he would deliver his State of the Union address when the partial government shutdown is over, clarifying his plans hours after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi blocked him from delivering the speech in the chamber while federal agencies are closed.
“As the Shutdown was going on, Nancy Pelosi asked me to give the State of the Union Address. I agreed,” Trump said in the Twitter post. “She then changed her mind because of the Shutdown, suggesting a later date. This is her prerogative – I will do the Address when the Shutdown is over.”
Trump added that he was no longer looking for “an alternative venue” for the speech, which was to be delivered next week.
Reaction was, predictably, delicious…

We like this idea:

Instead of the State of the Union, all the networks should just broadcast the pee tape, which would accurately capture the State of the Union at the moment
