Cancel SOTU? Clearly Nancy fears Trump’s powers of persuasion

Nancy fears Trump's powers of persuasion

Just a short time ago, the AP reported that Nancy Pelosi has asked President Trump to delay or even cancel giving his State of the Union Address. 

Are you surprised?

Nancy Pelosi might be a nitwit, but she isn’t completely stupid.

When it comes to speaking directly to the people, President Trump’s powers of persuasion are undeniable – even to the new Speaker of the House.

And the last thing Nancy wants is for President Trump to have an hour or so to make the case to the American people for securing the border, building a Wall and stopping the unfettered flow of drugs, gangs, criminals and illegal aliens.

Of course that’s not the excuse Nancy is giving.

From the AP’s article:

Pelosi says the partial shutdown is raising concerns about security preparations for the speech. The California Democrat notes that the Secret Service and Department of Homeland Security have been without funding for almost four weeks.

The annual speech is perhaps the president’s biggest opportunity to present his agenda directly to the public.

Pelosi writes that “given the security concerns and unless government reopens this week, I suggest that we work together to determine another suitable date after the government has re-opened.”

She’s also raising the possibility that Trump deliver the message in writing, as presidents once did.

What nonsense.

It isn’t security concerns that prompted this letter; it’s her own fear of Trump’s powers of persuasion.

Well, that and knowing that watching Democrats sitting on their hands and frowning when the President argues for keeping Americans safe will not play well among the American people.

Just remember back to last year’s SOTU.

The grumpy faces of the Democrats made for some really atrocious optics.

And despite the display of the grumpy-uglies from Democrats in the chamber, President Trump’s powers of persuasion hit home among the American people.

And that is precisely why Nancy wants the SOTU scrapped.

She knows the American people by a large margin already support increased border security and the construction of a border barrier.  And given the President’s powers of persuasion, having an hour to further make the case will only increase that support.

The Democrats are already on the brink of losing this shutdown battle.

This isn’t about concerns over the shutdown. This is just Nancy trying to stop the bleeding.

    I support President Trump holding “The State of The Union from his Oval Office!! I do not want to see the lemon sucking face of Democrats! Speaker Pelosi and Schumer are a distraction to the facts.

      Personally, I prefer he fly to a city on the southern border and hold a rally-style SOTU there.

    Nan-bitch is concerned for the President’s safety? Aw, that’s so sweet! Because, if ANYTHING ever happened to him, his supporters would rise up and that would be the end of that. And Nan-bitch.

    I think it is partially because she is afraid he may persuade some people about border security, but also, if she can make it look like she got Trump to do something, that maybe she would gain an advantage/momentum – “Ohhh, look! Nancy made Trump postpone his speech! Now she’s got a leg up on him..isn’t she tough!!”…

    MarK Warner wrote a piece in the Wall Street Journal today claiming that before he went into politics he was a successful business man, urging President Trump to fold which he seems to think would help Chancy save face.
    I just can’t believe how amateur and naive this whole bunch is to be so outfoxed by a professional but to dumb to realize they have lost all credibility.
    They’re dead but they won’t lie down.

    Imagine the outcry if the republicans had told Obama that they would not allow a state of the union address in the House??? We would still be hearing the echoes here 2 years on.

    Nan always looks like she is fiddling with her dentures in these pictures. I wonder why?

    This is going to epic.

    Could failure to give SOTU on time be used as grounds for impeachment?

    San Fran Nan doesn’t want the SOTU address in the chamber because she knows full well she can’t control the loudmouth showboat idiots in her party. They will disrupt the speech and the nation will get to see who the democrats really are: fascist liars who care only about themselves and don’t give a rip about this country.
