Ending showdown with Pelosi, Trump postpones State of Union

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump said he is postponing his State of the Union address until the partial government shutdown ends, yielding after a weeklong showdown with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
Following a high-stakes game of dare and double-dare, Trump conceded Wednesday night that “no venue that can compete with the history, tradition and importance of the House Chamber.” He said he was not looking for an alternate option after Pelosi served notice earlier in the day that he wouldn’t be allowed to deliver the address to a joint session of Congress next week.

Pelosi had taken the step after Trump said he planned to show up in spite of Democratic objections to the speech taking place with large swaths of the government shut down.

Snip
Moments after her letter became public, Trump told reporters he wasn’t surprised by Pelosi’s action. Democrats have become “radicalized,” he claimed. He expanded on those sentiments during a subsequent event at the White House, calling the cancellation a “disgrace” and asserting that Pelosi didn’t want to hear the truth about the need for better border security.

I think he's showing that he's flexible to a point but they are not.

I'm not sure I know what he's doing but, we'll know soon, I think.

I'm thinking maybe he's giving them enough rope...

Could be.

What's clear, from Nan and others leaving town is, the people out of work aren't a priority for the New Socialist Left. It's all about power. Nan has been made captive by the politics of the Octo crowd. Octo is now powerful and feared by many old Dems.
She is barely coherent in this video:

Yeah, they're really making a spectacle of themselves.

That is one strange video. She's very incoherent -- almost like she's drunk. And who are those people behind her? The tranny looks very uncomfortable and the other man just keeps trying to stifle a laugh.

The media is cashing in on Trump and anti Trump. If you look at the current business model, it goes south once Trump is out of office. MSNBC was going broke before Trump ran for office. So, anything that will get media hits and attract viewers is prime material. Octo fills that bill. She's young and could be good news copy for years (not likely, in my opinion). I'll bet the lefties in the MSM think she's a serious dummy but, she's very popular and gets attention whenever she want's it. Pelosi surely sees her as competition for media air time.

Octo showed up at Sundance, look at the media coverage she got. Octo was appointed to the House Oversight Committee, what's up with that ?
