Pelosi Makes HUGE Rookie Mistake: Security Already In Place for SOTU

0 8,020

Within hours of Speaker Nancy Pelosi informing President Trump that she was canceling the State of the Union address, NBC and CNN were reporting that the Secret Service and the DHS were stating that she has no idea what she is talking about. Security is already in place.

Pelosi’s latest ‘brilliant idea’ quickly turned into a HUGE ROOKIE MISTAKE!

There IS full security for the SOTU! “We’ve been planning for this for months, as we always do. It didn’t start up 29 days ago,” says one official.

On Wednesday, Pelosi wrote to the president to rescind her Jan. 3 invitation for him to address Congress on January 29, in keeping with tradition.

Pelosi was putting the blame on a lack of available security due to the ongoing partial government shutdown:

“This requires hundreds of people working on the logistics and security of it. Most of those people are either furloughed or victims of the shutdown. The president’s shutdown. But that isn’t the point. The point is security. … [It’s] a security decision which is completely out of my hands.”

But both NBC and CNN have already poured cold water on Pelosi’s explanation via the SS and DHS:

Even Fox!

I am really kind of disappointed. I wanted to watch this play out. Remember the #emptyChair…

But it is priceless that her rookie mistake came back on her so quickly! I bet she is thoroughly embarrassed. This is what happens when you don’t think things through and act within anger instead of common sense.

“Sadly, given the security concerns and unless government re-opens this week: I suggest we work together to determine another suitable date, after government has re-opened for this address. Or for you to consider delivering your State of the Union address in writing to the Congress on January 29,” wrote Speaker Nancy Pelosi to President Donald Trump on Wednesday.

House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer even went a step further Wednesday afternoon, declaring that “the State of the Union is off.”

Pelosi delivered the message again in an interview with CNN’s Ashley Killough:

“This is a housekeeping matter in the Congress of the United States, so we can honor the responsibility of the invitation we extended to the President,” said Pelosi. “He can make it from the Oval Office if he wants.”

Then…boom…SS and DHS enters stage left.

There’s no historical precedent for a situation such as this, so we are treading new waters. But I think this was a fight Pelosi should have never picked. One thing always trumps, pardon the pun, politics; Tradition.

Make no bones about it, no matter what, the President will address the nation that night. All Pelosi has done is taken away the ability of the MSM to constantly show the temper tantrum faces from legislators on the left side of the isle.

The Presidents son, Donald Trump Jr., gave a preview of what the argument coming out of the White House might sound like when he said this Wednesday:

“Speaker Pelosi is clearly attempting to block my father from giving his State of the Union speech. Not because 20% of the government is shut down. Because she is terrified of him having another opportunity to speak directly to the American people about her party’s obstruction, unfiltered and without her friends in the media running interference for her.”

Remember the #EmptyChair folks. Nancy Pelosi and Steny Hoyer obviously did not think through all the ramifications of this move.
