Ed. It has been a wonderfully entertaining week. Nancy Pelosi and a gaggle of fellow Democrats used to perpetual free rides on the taxpayer dime were stopped cold before they could spend another few million flying all over Europe on military jets. President Trump saw to that and the American people were four square behind him.
And then the far-left site BuzzFeed decided to publish a little FauxNews item which claimed that former Trump attorney Michael Cohen was ostensibly instructed to lie about the president’s connection with Russia. That was such a blatant bit of tripe that even Special Council Mueller declared it false from the git go. Like any proud, far-left rag, BuzzFeed has decided to double down on the phony report.
Isn’t it a blast to have an actual MAN in the White House for a change?

President Donald Trump said he had “so many options” for delivering the State of the Union address after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi asked him to delay it because of the partial government shutdown.
“Nancy, I am still thinking about the State of the Union speech, there are so many options – including doing it as per your written offer (made during the Shutdown, security is no problem), and my written acceptance,” Trump wrote on Twitter Sunday. “While a contract is a contract, I’ll get back to you soon!”
Pelosi sent Trump a letter Wednesday seeking to delay the State of the Union address or have the president deliver a written address. Pelosi cited the Department of Homeland Security’s partial funding and said the Secret Service would not be able to provide adequate security. Trump’s address is scheduled for Jan. 29.
Many congressional Republicans have floated plans to allow Trump to bypass Pelosi’s invitation to deliver the address. Republican Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul suggested Trump bypass the House of Representatives entirely and deliver the speech from the Senate floor Thursday. Republican Kentucky Rep. Thomas Massie echoed Paul’s suggestion in a tweet Saturday.
“Could [Donald Trump] deliver the State of the Union Address in the Senate? The Senate floor is smaller than the House floor, but as you can see in this photograph, there are enough seats if some of us sit in the gallery,” Massie wrote on Twitter Saturday.
Pelosi and Trump’s standoff stems from the parties’ disagreement over border wall funding that led to the partial government shutdown in the first place. Sunday marked day 30 of the partial government shutdown triggered by the inability of Congress and the White House to agree on funding the southern border wall Trump wants. Pelosi has said a border wall would be “immoral.”
Trump also accused the Democrats of being only focused on 2020 after Pelosi rejected Trump’s offer to bring Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) and Temporary Protected Status (TPS) extensions into a compromise to reopen the government Saturday.
“Nancy Pelosi and some of the Democrats turned down my offer yesterday before I even got up to speak,” Trump wrote on Twitter Sunday morning. “They don’t see crime [and] drugs, they only see 2020 – which they are not going to win. Best economy! They should do the right thing for the Country [and] allow people to go back to work.”
