‘She wields the knife’: Pelosi moves to belittle and undercut Trump in shutdown fight

House Democrats on Wednesday were making plans to undermine President Trump at his Jan. 29 State of the Union address. Just past 8:30 a.m., the leadership’s communications arm sent an email to lawmakers urging them to bring furloughed federal workers or other “message-related” guests to the nationally televised event.

Addressing a closed-door meeting of House Democrats, the speaker read a letter she had just sent to Trump asking him to either postpone the speech until the federal government reopens or deliver the text in writing, citing security concerns.

Surprised Democratic lawmakers cheered their leader’s rationale: If the government stays shut down, Pelosi would deprive Trump of the spotlight he craves. To a president especially sensitive to acts of disrespect — and one with a hearty appetite for pomp and circumstance — the so-called unvitation was not merely a #power play. It was a calculated personal slight.

This is politically dumb but far be it from me to stop her.

I mean, this plays into Trump’s strength. The Constitution only ever requires a written report and for years that’s all it ever was. Now he gets to hold a televised speech WHEREVER HE WANTS. As long as it doesn’t have to be a joint session at the Capitol - he can hold it in a stadium. If he DOES have it at the Capitol - he can address Nancy - or her empty seat behind him - any way he wants and make her look petty and small.

Heck he can hold it by the border wall.
