Pelosi Invites Trump To Deliver SOTU

This surprises me. I expected some drama at a minimum. Via FR:

Pelosi invites Trump to deliver State of the Union on Feb. 4

Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Friday invited President Trump to deliver his State of the Union address on Feb. 4.
"In their great wisdom, our Founders crafted a Constitution based on a system of separation of powers: three co-equal branches acting as checks on each other. To ensure that balance of powers, the Constitution calls for the president to 'from time to time give to the Congress Information of the State of the Union,'" Pelosi wrote in a letter to Trump.


  1. I'm sure there is a nasty surprise floating somewhere in the punch bowl. Remember: to a Democrat 'play nice' is a tactic, not a philosophy.

    1. Alinsky's rules include keeping the pressure on; picking a target, freezing it, personalize it, polarize it; and the threat is more terrifying than the thing itself.

      You could say done, done, and done. Now for the next act...

      If she left the SOTU invite in limbo, or made a big deal out of it, it would change the on-going story. This way she gets media water-carriers to writes stories about making history--a first--a president giving SOTU under cloud of impeachment. Et cetera, etc.

      She's scripting the theatre production.

    2. Perhaps she learned from the last time that it would be a loser. Still, she won't be able to control the behavior of the craziest among the Dem crazies at the SOTU.

  2. Do not trust her, period.

    Use her, abuse her, but trust? Never.

  3. Pelosi has been against impeachment ever since the lack of evidence became apparent with the Mueller Report. She is very politically savvy and knows that the negatives will greatly outweigh the positives. However, the Deep State knows what is coming with Durham's investigation and their main defense is to disparage and delegitimize it's findings as Trump's revenge for impeachment. As instructed, Pelosi walked the plank in service to this end. Everything else from this point on is damage control.

  4. "Waters: If the Senate Clears Trump, He’s Going to Bring Putin to the White House"

    Not on topic, but Waters has teed up the perfect troll for Democrats. If I were Trump I wouldn't wait. I'd invite Vlad to Christmas dinner in the Whitehouse and let them howl.
    Practice 'Peace on Earth; Goodwill towards men' vs impeach, impeach, impeach; Russia, Russia, Russia (the Democrat Hate Follies).
