This is obviously wrong. If he was pandering to racial stereotypes, South Carolina football players, regardless of races, equates to BBQ, not McDonalds.

Is Pelosi doing that so he definitely moves ahead with the SOTU and looks terrible, because any delay is a bad idea. Make him wallow in his failure.

wat

their breakfast biscuits are easily the worst thing about the menu- the minis are ok but too pricey for what they are. the nuggs and sanwiches are elite tho and polynesian sauce is the pro move for dipping waffle fries

if you cant get bojangles where you're at, i still maintain that hardee's has the best chicken biscuits if done right

Thatís the play

Make trump say ďoh yeah, Iím going to have it anyway!Ē

Instead of delaying until the shutdown ends.

Stopping the SOTU is 100% a win. That's Trump's wheelhouse; depriving him of it nixes a propaganda show he's very good at orchestrating, and also will piss him off mightily.

re: The Presidency of Donald J. Trump: State of Emergency

Pelosi play could also be partially motivated to appeal to the federal workers. NSSE's suck even when people are getting paid. Certainly nobody wants to deal with SOTU security when their pay for it is on hold. It's another piece supporting the narrative that Democrats are paying attention to the real effects of the shutdown while Republicans simply expect federal workers to suck it up and continue providing essential services despite no pay. Probably a minimal effect on an already small population but the accumulation of several such plays can move the needle.

McCarthy: ‘Unbecoming Of The Speaker’ To Delay State Of The Union

Quote:
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) said Wednesday that it was “unbecoming” of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) to rescind her invitation for President Donald Trump to deliver the State of the Union address as a result of the government shutdown.


“To change course like that shows she’s playing politics,” McCarthy said, per CNN. “To change course is just unbecoming of the speaker.”
That's gold. Somebody from the GOP accusing somebody else of doing something "unbecoming". **** you, you ****ing mother****er, and the horse you rode in on.

Took the words right out of my mouth.

I am absolutely positive Trump has uttered literally thousands of things infinitely more "unbecoming" as President.

"changing course" while ****stick changed his mind after Fox News got mad about a wall. This is someone I would openly mock in a bar or basically any social situation.

re: The Presidency of Donald J. Trump: State of Emergency

T-Mobile announced a merger needing Trump administration approval. The next day, 9 executives had reservations at Trump’s hotel.
Last April, telecom giant T-Mobile announced a megadeal: a $26 billion merger with rival Sprint, which would more than double T-Mobile’s value and give it a huge new chunk of the cellphone market.

But for T-Mobile, one hurdle remained: Its deal needed approval from the Trump administration.

The next day, in Washington, staffers at the Trump International Hotel were handed a list of incoming “VIP Arrivals.” That day’s list included nine of T-Mobile’s top executives — including its chief operating officer, chief technology officer, chief strategy officer and chief financial officer, and its outspoken celebrity chief executive, John Legere.

The executives had scheduled stays of up to three days. But it was not their last visit.

Instead, T-Mobile executives have returned to President Trump’s hotel repeatedly since then, according to eyewitnesses and hotel documents obtained by The Washington Post.

By mid-June, seven weeks after the announcement of the merger, hotel records indicated that one T-Mobile executive was making his 10th visit to the hotel. Legere appears to have made at least four visits to the Trump hotel, walking the lobby in his T-Mobile gear.

...

Those lists showed 38 nights of hotel stays by the T-Mobile executives; because The Post’s data is incomplete, the number could be higher.

Rooms at the luxury hotel routinely cost more than $300 per night.

The Post shared details about those stays — gleaned from the VIP Arrivals lists and eyewitness accounts — with T-Mobile and the Trump Organization. Neither challenged the findings. After Legere’s brief interview at the Trump hotel, T-Mobile declined to comment further for this report.

Trump’s hotel also has hosted parties put on by the Kuwaiti and Philippine embassies, rented hundreds of rooms to lobbyists paid by Saudi Arabia and hosted a large meeting of the oil industry’s lobbying group.

re: The Presidency of Donald J. Trump: State of Emergency

Federal agency ‘improperly’ ignored Constitutional concerns before allowing Trump to keep lease to his hotel, internal watchdog says
The General Services Administration “ignored” concerns that President Trump’s lease on a government-owned building — the one that houses his Trump International Hotel in Washington — might violate the Constitution when it allowed Trump to keep the lease after he took office, according to a new report from the agency’s inspector general.

Trump’s company won the lease several years before he became president. After Trump was elected, the agency had to decide if his company would be allowed to keep its lease.

At that time, the inspector general found, the agency should have determined if the lease violates the Constitution’s emoluments clauses, which bar presidents from taking payments from foreign governments, or individual U.S. states. But it did not, according to the report issued Wednesday.

“We…found that [the agency] improperly ignored these Emoluments Clauses, even though the lease itself requires compliance with the laws of the United States, including the Constitution,” said the report.

Not sure I love the idea of the State of the Union address being turned into a Mississippi hangar-style white supremacist rally aired live on every television channel. Willing to be wrong though if that isn't what he does.

Yeah, I'm happy to say I was completely wrong about her, so far.

I think this has to be the biggest free-roll in her life - she obviously hates him (with good reason) and he keeps stepping on his own dick over and over. All she has to do is tell him to **** off (politely) and watch him rage until his next self-inflicted dick stomp.

All he has ever done is grift and he's still so terrible at it. $11,000 worth of revenue for your ****ty hotel for a $26,000,000,000 merger? Another big win for president deals!
