Trump to Nancy: You're grounded

When Nancy tried to cancel President Donald John Trump's State of the Union speech, I thought it's petty.

Today, while she and her cronies were aboard an Air Force bus headed for a military flight to Europe, the Commander-in-Chief cancelled the flight.



It's funny. It's walking-into-the-door funny. It's The Three Stooges Meet the Marx Brothers funny. It's society woman-meets-pie-with-her-face funny.

A woman elected from some gerrymandered district in San Francisco challenged the Leader of the Free World.

He left her on the bus.

He physically grounded her.

His message was simply, "Due to the shutdown, I am sorry to inform you that your trip to Brussels, Egypt and Afghanistan has been postponed. We will reschedule this seven-day excursion when the Shutdown is over. In light of the 800,000 great American workers not receiving pay, I am sure you would agree that postponing this public relations event is totally appropriate. I also feel that, during this period, it would be better if you were in Washington negotiating with me and joining the Strong Border Security movement to end the Shutdown. Obviously, if you would like to make your journey by flying commercial that would certainly be you prerogative.

"I look forward to seeing you soon and even more forward to watching our open and dangerous Southern Border finally receive the attention, funding, and security it so desperately deserves!"

The master just served her.

She tried to stop him from meeting a constitutional obligation.

He stopped a "public relations event."

Pelosi spokesman Drew Hammill tweeted, "The purpose of the trip was to express appreciation and thanks to our men and women in uniform for their service and dedication, and to obtain critical national security and intelligence briefings from those on the front lines."

In other words, a public relations event.

The Washington Post wrote, "Trump didn’t explain what authority he has to cancel Pelosi’s trip, but it would likely require the use of military aircraft controlled by his administration. He said Pelosi could fly commercial if she wanted to go forward with the visit."

Article II, Section 2, says, "1: The President shall be Commander in Chief of the Army and Navy of the United States..."

What part of commander-in-chief do they not understand?

The tit for tat showed who's the boss. She tried to one-up him, only to be stomped because his office is far more important than hers.

This is cat and mouse.

President Trump is the cat, and contrary to every cartoon you ever saw as a kid, the cat always wins.

Me: "Conan Trump, what is best in life?"

Conan Trump: "To watch your enemies stuck in the bus on the tarmac."

  3. I recall Speaker Pelosi parading w/ huge gavel, trailed by congressional minions, through Tea Party protesters in 2009 like an Empress. Hell, even Queen Elizabeth II would have walked through the Mall will less of a royal act. Pelosi was showing us little people who was boss. President Donal Trump gave her the comeuppance I have been dreaming of since that day.

    Best. President. Ever. President Trump should frame this letter and display in prominently in his presidential library.

  8. I can see Nancy now with a Margaret Dumont-style shocked look on her face, and I can't stop laughing.

    That being said, whatever the official reason for her excursion (originally a military term), it would have seen her bad-mouthing President Trump all the way there and back.

    Maybe she planned to meet up with John Kerry and tell everyone she met to just wait our President Trump until the next election.

    Nah! It was probably worse than that. President Trump was right to cancel her excursion. At least make her spend her own money to finance her sedition, not the taxpayers.

    1. Article 2, section 3 begs to differ:

      "He shall from time to time give to the Congress Information of the State of the Union, and recommend to their Consideration such Measures as he shall judge necessary and expedient; he may, on extraordinary Occasions, convene both Houses, or either of them, and in Case of Disagreement between them, with Respect to the Time of Adjournment, he may adjourn them to such Time as he shall think proper; he shall receive Ambassadors and other public Ministers; he shall take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed, and shall Commission all the Officers of the United States."

      One could argue the definition of "from time to time," but it has been annually as far back as I remember.

    2. "He shall from time to time give to the Congress Information of the State of the Union, and recommend to their Consideration such Measures as he shall judge necessary and expedient; he may, on extraordinary Occasions, convene both Houses, or either of them, and in Case of Disagreement between them, with Respect to the Time of Adjournment, he may adjourn them to such Time as he shall think proper; he shall receive Ambassadors and other public Ministers; he shall take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed, and shall Commission all the Officers of the United States."
      I'd say he was just doing his job.

  15. As I've said elsewhere, this tit for tat is unseemly. Unfortunately, it is necessary. For decades, Republicans have allowed mean, petty and childish behavior by "progressives" like Pelosi to go unchallenged. The Bushes were gentlemen, but Romney was craven. Neither approach had any effect. It would be insane to think that more of the same would change Pelosi's behavior. Like the selfish child she act like, she requires an understanding of acceptable behavior. If kindness and dignity mean nothing to her, perhaps the President's approach will work.

  30. People tend to forget that Nancy Pelosi is a moron. And as she's gotten older she's gotten dumber. I don't know if it's her advisors or senility but she really does seem to believe the pr that comes out of her mouth.

    She's a good frontman for her puppetmasters but at times they too underestimate people and they definitely need to understand that Trump isn't Bush and this isn't 2006. We've seen them fawn and kowtow to another imbecile meat puppet with little cause other than his agreeing with their agenda while actually undermining it. We're not playing by the old rules.

    That's how you all got Trump, Nancy. You played by your set of rules and the GOP played by another. And if they deviated, you shamed them into surrender.

    That's not going to happen anymore.

    Have fun these next 2 years.

  34. Trump is, once again, showing Republicans how to fight and how effective it is.

    W would not have done this. We know Romney nor McCain would even contemplate this.

    Our politics have been much worse. It just happened when there was no 24 hour news cycle and instant social media.

  35. Trump is EXACTLY the type of conservative we need to win the war on American values, the constitution, and the founding principles of the American nation.

    Far too long, the Republicans have rolled over, and refused to fight by the street rules the dem/progressive/media have embraced.

    Let's hope the Trump is successful in re-making the republican party in his image, so that we can at long last fight the culture war on an equal footing.

    The truth is on our side, there are more of us (conservatives with American values) than there are of them (progressive/socialist/communist).

    Let's win this thing. Build the wall, balance the budget, pay down the astronomical national debt, and RIF the government down to a manageable size.

    MAGA!

  36. There were 7 congresscritters (all Dems) AND 97 family members scheduled for that flight, including Nancy's entire family. They weren't on a "congressional junket", they were FLEEING the country. Why? Because the funding for federal courts ran out today so any federal court action will be handled by military tribunal. They couldn't stop Whittaker becoming A.G.. Nancy, Scuff and rest know they're about to be indicted and, despite their best efforts, their is no way they can stop it now. No activist judges to try to monkey wrench it. Nancy is going to get another beach vacation, at Gitmo.
