Lindsey Graham Responds To Pelosi’s Stunt With Blistering Statement That Will Echo Thru US History

Nancy Pelosi pulled the political stunt of the year when she yanked her invitation to give the SOTU in the House chamber.

“I am writing to inform you that the House of Representatives will not consider a concurrent resolution authorizing the President’s State of the Union address in the House Chamber until government has opened,” she wrote in a letter to Trump.

After some back and forth, President Trump agreed to postpone the SOTU rather than seek a different venue tweeting out:

“As the Shutdown was going on, Nancy Pelosi asked me to give the State of the Union Address. I agreed. She then changed her mind because of the Shutdown, suggesting a later date. This is her prerogative – I will do the Address when the Shutdown is over. I am not looking for an….

…alternative venue for the SOTU Address because there is no venue that can compete with the history, tradition and importance of the House Chamber. I look forward to giving a “great” State of the Union Address in the near future!”

This makes sense and hopefully this truce between the two leaders will lead to an end to the shutdown but before that happens, Lindsey Graham had to give Nancy Pelosi a piece of his mind.

Lindsey ripped Pelosi in a statement and series of tweets:

“The President – regardless of party – should have the opportunity to address the American people in the State of the Union address from the traditional venue of the U.S. House of Representatives.

The State of the Union is a tradition which has been carried out during times of war and peace, turmoil and tranquility. It is an important piece of our history and government.

Speaker Pelosi’s decision to ignore this long-standing American tradition is absurd, petty, and shameful. The judgement of history will NOT be kind.”

Correct, history is the ultimate judge and Pelosi should remember that before she continues down this road again.

Look, divided government offers tremendous opportunities to compromise and advance the nations’ goals – many believe Obama squandered this chance while others blame Mitch McConnell.

Point is, Pelosi and Trump should not make the same mistakes and they should actually sit down and find common ground – much remains on a whole host of issues – it just takes the desire to make a deal.
