I wonder how Trump feels about being out maneuvered by Nancy Pelosi again?



House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s letter asking President Donald Trump to delay the State of the Union address is less a request and more of an order, says a top Congressional scholar. Larry Tribe, professor of Constitutional law at Harvard Law School, says that as long as Pelosi is opposed to the State of the Union happening, as scheduled, on Jan. 29, it won’t happen. “Pelosi was basically uninviting the President, but doing it diplomatically,” Tribe tells Fortune. “The form in which the State of the Union address is delivered isn’t constitutionally specified, but if it’s to be delivered as a Joint Session of Congress as has become the custom, the House and Senate must jointly adopt a resolution to schedule it. Without that, he can’t come. Neither chamber has adopted such a resolution yet, and as long as Pelosi opposes it, it’s DOA




While the Constitution requires the president deliver a State of the Union address, there’s no language in there that demands it be a speech or in person.

So, it his her house and her rules. Trump is denied the chance to "Grand Stand," before the nation, and whole time he must be going crazy knowing that Nancy and the Dems are laughing at him for being such a fool.

Well played, Nancy, well played.

What do you think Trump will try as an alternative? Will he request TV time, like his last "Address to the Nation," which was a boring, uninspired rehash of his talking points...blah...wall..blah..brown people...blah...

Who knows?

But I am sure some of you have opinions...

Enjoy!

He can still give the State of the Union, he's just not invited to give it at the House of Representatives chamber as usual.

The white house has it's own little studio. They could set up in the oval office as has been done in the past and deliver the state of the union from there and Pelosi cant do a thing about it.

So trump will just give the sotu address from the white house?
YouTube or Amazon would jump at the chance for exclusive coverage of such.

Would pelosi be the first to deny a potus access?

Do your research.

NP can not stop Trump from doing a SotU Address.


Yahoo is a super liberal site with idiot editors that don't know their head from their @$$. Majority of their stories are 100% opinion no matter how they present it.

"Larry Tribe, professor of Constitutional law at Harvard Law School" should go back to school because he obviously failed at his job.

But Pense is still the presedent of the senate. Like Levin said, he should do it at the senate gallery instead of the house gallery. Imagine all of the "could do's" here where Trump would come off a one helluva pimp daddy troll.

Seriously, Trump could have some real fun with this. The possibilities are endless!

You find this entertaining, do you? The continued embarrassment these people are putting on the American people you think is fun and witty? Tell me, what good does this do to better our society? How is this representative of democracy? It's not. This is simply an attempt to further embarrass Trump and stymie maturity within our government.

It's also setting a very poor precedent. What are you and the like going to say when republicans do this to the democrats one day? I'm not a Trump supporter but I do want America to do well. This does nothing but only further the divide.

Maybe you should've pulled your head outta your ass. Then you would've known you're posting fake news.

Pelosi says lots of idiotic things.

This is just another of them. She cant just veto the state of the union address.

He’s going to deliver the State of the Union address. And it will be aired, live.
And watched by millions.

Any lEFtard who thinks otherwise is a moron.

Trump always gets the last laugh. He can hold his state of the Union from anywhere he wants to hold it. Nancy acts like a kid.

No, but she can uninvited him. Which she did. The delivery method and timing are optional. He can still give a State of the Union just not in the traditional sense.

Cmon man.... You're basically a poster boy for this kinda liberal babble that's front and center today. Imagine how the people of this country who have a clue see the democratic party and anyone who eats this stuff up? They're just throwing everything and anything they can to make you and everyone else who's on their side, believe SOMETHING to make you think they're actually doing something that will finally stick to get rid of, once and for all, the orange man.

There is no bucket of water that's going to make Trump disappear, so just give it up already. It was a good try. Now it's just getting old.

Whata world, whata world...

Trump can, and should, deliver his State of the Union speech as planned, but from the Oval Office.

Speaker Pelosi is right. Even though Homeland Security and the Secret Service could conceivable do their job in protecting all the VIPs that would be present at the speech, within the Halls of Congress, they would be doing so without pay.

Also, with the 100s of furloughed workers at TSA, the Fight Controllers, SS, FBI, etc., that aren't being paid, aren't working, are calling in sick and/or are understaffed and overworked, it potentially puts the traveling VIPs and their staffs at risk during their trip to and from DC, for the SOTU, and their stay there as well.

Here are other sources:

Say Trump walked out into the Hall of the House. Could he clear his throat and start giving a speech? This is where the president might finally arrive at a road block. The House is governed by a detailed set of parliamentary procedures, which make demands of decorum. There are all sorts of rules determining who can speak when and on what, but, in general, as Speaker of the House, Pelosi controls the flow of debate on the House floor. Without express permission from Pelosi, Trump could not start giving a speech in the Hall of the House.[/exnewsSource

As he weighs a response to Pelosi, Trump could not go forward with a State of the Union address in Congress without her blessing. Donald Ritchie, former historian of the Senate, said that anytime a president comes to speak, it must be at the request of Congress. Trump could opt to deliver a speech somewhere else, like the Oval Office, but it would not have the same ritualistic heft.
Source

tate of the Union addresses are traditionally made to a joint session of Congress in the House chamber at the invitation of the House speaker. The House and Senate must pass a resolution to formalize the invitation — which has not happened this year.

Dude, he's gonna light her senile ass up... I can't wait! Every time the democrats think they FINALLY got one over Trump, it backfires in their faces. Nancy will be left standing there making that face she made when she had a turd stuck in it, or whatever that was.
