Forever Divided

President Trump gave his State of the Union Address last night, and after seeing the highlights (and frequent lowlights), I am convinced this country will be forever divided. The actions of the Democrats during the address were despicable, but not unexpected.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) made a complete spectacle of herself Tuesday night, grimacing with disgust and muttering to herself as the president delivered his State of the Union Address.

The president and his nemesis got off to an awkward start when he either refused to shaker her hand, or didn’t notice that she had extended her hand. At any rate, the spurned speaker withdrew her hand and awkwardly shrugged it off.

If I’m going to be completely fair – and I will try to be – this is on both of them. Apparently, the president and Pelosi have not spoken since he called her a “third grade politician” in October. That’s on the president. The handshake snub? I think that’s on both of them. They obviously despise each other, and it’s not entirely clear if the president snubbed the handshake, or Pelosi gave a half-hearted attempt. Either way, it makes them both look bad.

There were other terrible moments on the Democrat side, but none were more reprehensible than this:

Most disgracefully of all, however, Pelosi—perhaps in a bid to upstage the president’s masterful SOTU speech—ostentatiously tore the speech printout up after Trump finished delivering it.

A childish, immature temper tantrum from the Speaker of the House. This from a woman who continually claims hers is the party of civility, and the woman who publicly destroyed Congressman Joe Wilson after he blurted out, “You lie!” during Obama’s SOTU. Wilson was wrong to shout that out, but that’s weak sauce compared to Pelosi’s dramatic tearing of the speech.

Pelosi Cancels The SOTU Address

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi took it upon herse4lf to cancel the State of the Union Address set for next week. Pelosi’s letter cited “security concerns,” the continuing government shutdown, and the fact she despises America.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi officially will not allow President Donald Trump to deliver his State of the Union address to Congress on January 29, she said in a letter Wednesday afternoon.

“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 been reopened,” Pelosi declared.

How about the president walks into the House of Representatives and delivers the speech? Who’s going to stop him, Nancy? You??

Pelosi’s letter came hours after Trump dared the Speaker to follow through on her suggestion that the address be put off. The House speaker at the time suggested that the address could not be held because of security concerns from the government shutdown’s effect on protection personnel.

Pelosi, however, was rebuked by Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, who said that the department was fully prepared to provide security if necessary.

Personally, I think this is a great move by the Democrats. Keep exposing your Trump Derangement Syndrome to the country, leftists. I’m sure it will bode well for your 2020 chances. Oh, and President Trump, please continue the government shutdown for the rest of your presidency. F**k these people.

The most pathetic part of this decision is Pelosi’s continuing ignorance regarding the Secret Service. The USSS doesn’t make arrangements for such events a few days before; they are planned weeks, even months in advance. Shutdown or no, the Secret Service’s plan is already in place.

You’d think this bint would understand that after her 224 years in Congress.

Speaker Of The Louse

Nancy Pelosi, the dementia-ridden leftist hack has postponed the State of the Union Address because she believes the men and women of the U.S. Secret Service are incompetent boobs.

The Secret Service was never contacted by Nancy Pelosi’s office or other Democratic congressional leadership regarding their ability to protect the president, members of the administration and Congress during the State of the Union, according to a senior law enforcement official at the Department of Homeland Security.

So wait, Pelosi determined the State of the Union Address cannot commence because of security issues, but the security issues at our southern border are inconsequential?

According to the official, Pelosi made the decision unilaterally without contacting the Secret Service or DHS. “The Secret Service was never contacted by congressional leadership regarding our security plan or the Secret Service’s ability to carry it out,” the senior law enforcement official said.

Pelosi is the Speaker of the House, so she obviously knows more about security issues than the Secret Service, you deplorable nitwits!

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi sent a letter Wednesday to the White House asking for a postponement of the annual State of the Union address, citing congressional security concerns because of “hamstrung” security agencies on account of the government shutdown.

Look, I couldn’t care less about the SOTU, no matter who is sitting in the Oval Office. That said, I believe this is all about “getting back” at the president for the shutdown, and eliminating his chance to brag about his accomplishments to the American people. It’s pure politics, and it’s a move a Republican would never even consider.

President Trump Gives First Address

president-trump-state-of-the-unionPresident Trump gave his first speech to a united Congress last night, and by most accounts, it was a successful, heartfelt, unifying speech.

Trump began with a claim on the role of political peacemaker, saying he wanted to bring Americans who voted for him together with those who didn’t. That followed a stunning condemnation of anti-Semitism and other hatred.

Trump declared that the close of Black History Month led him to remember ‘our nation’s path toward civil rights and the work that still remains.’

‘Recent threats targeting Jewish Community Centers and vandalism of Jewish cemeteries, as well as last week’s shooting in Kansas City, remind us that while we may be a Nation divided on policies, we are a country that stands united in condemning hate and evil in all its forms.’

Naturally, the Democrats acted like petulant children during the speech, with some leftists laughing and hissing during the president’s speech. Apparently Joe Wilson-esque outbursts are welcome during a Republican address.

Trump made appeal after appeal for bipartisan cooperation, but Democrats were anything but unanimously receptive. Some of them laughed out loud when the president bragged that he has ‘begun to drain the swamp of government corruption.’

Others gasped in audible disbelief when he announced the formation of a government department to assist victims of illegal-immigrant criminals. Then came the hissing when he announced that ‘the time for trivial fights is behind us.’

I have my issues with the POTUS, but like Bush 43, I believe Donald Trump is a very decent man.

The Hate Of The Union

Barack Obama Smug

The “president” will be holding his final State of the Union speech tonight, and he intends to give the country a big middle finger.

Obama will be talking about himself, not asking Congress for a long list of items he knows he’ll never get.

Obama will deliver his final State of the Union address a week after bypassing Congress by using his executive authority to expand gun rules. He could use the speech to highlight other issues on his agenda that he’ll address without the help of Congress, like Guantanamo Bay, echoing previous executive actions on everything from immigration, carbon dioxide emissions and re-starting diplomatic relationship with Cuba.

In an interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper on “State of the Union,” White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough signaled that Obama will pit the American people, watching on television, against Congress, his in-person audience, and its members’ donors.

The man whose 2008 political ads claimed “just knows how to bring people together” is going to pit the American people against politicians who have the audacity to disagree with him. Ironically, Obama will then hit the campaign trail to lament the inability of the country to come together and work toward a common goal.

Barack Obama. Uniter. Community organizer. The most divisive president in American history.
