WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Donald Trump said on Wednesday he would do an alternative event to the traditional State of the Union address before the U.S. Congress after House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi sent him a letter that her chamber would not sign off on the annual speech during the partial government shutdown.

“It’s a disgrace,” Trump said of Pelosi’s decision to block the address, initially scheduled for next Tuesday, during a White House meeting on border security.

Unfortunately for all of us, Trump is the disgrace.

Turn on those sad songs. :cry:



Perfect!

He can rent out a hall and bring in MAGA hat wearers and can have record attendance for any SOTU. He likes that.

“I have broken more Elton John records, he seems to have a lot of records. And I, by the way, I don’t have a musical instrument. I don’t have a guitar or an organ. No organ. Elton has an organ. And lots of other people helping. No we’ve broken a lot of records. We’ve broken virtually every record. Because you know, look I only need this space. They need much more room. For basketball, for hockey and all of the sports, they need a lot of room. We don’t need it. We have people in that space. So we break all of these records. Really we do it without like, the musical instruments. This is the only musical: the mouth. And hopefully the brain attached to the mouth. Right? The brain, more important than the mouth, is the brain. The brain is much more important.”

This is Trump saying he has no plans to end the shutdown before next Tuesday. Fed Employees take note. Just for planning purposes. Forewarned is forearned.

You forgot one thing.

First, they all have to assemble and pray Elton John's gay away, so they can listen to his records without enabling his sin.

He should make the speech at his hotel and charge admission.

So...Reuters says it, so it must be true, eh?

I wonder...can anyone do Reuter's job and provide a quote of Trump saying he wants to do an alternative event?

It would be kinda fun if the major networks refused to air it. (Unless I missed that detail?)

It would but I'm sure they all still will. Although at least he cannot hold congress hostage to his constant lying.

I keep waiting for them to finally do so!

It's not like it's a mystery on what he is going to say. I don't think there is much point watching Trump speak - you can't get back those precious minutes you know...

But the president also appeared to walk back his earlier insistence of doing the speech at the Capitol, saying he would “do something in the alternative.” He wouldn’t immediately say more on his plans.

sigh...

You are doing the same thing Reuters did...say something without providing an accurate quote.

Sorry, but you aren't the one capable of doing Reuters' job.

Moving on...

Trump needs to restart the government before anything. Then him and Nancy can play The Apprentice to their heart's desire.
Trump's little temper tantrum is wearing thin.

Right now Trump just has a salad shooter sticking out his ass.
