This is a really good point. What are they going to do? Fire everyone who doesnt show up to work without pay, and then somehow replace them when the shutdown is over? Great recruitment video they will have then.

"Come work for the government, knowing at any moment a confrontational man-child can prevent you from getting paid for no reason at all, and then we will force you to work without pay or be fired."

Im sure people will be lining up around the block to get in on that action.

Just a little light obstruction, nothing Congress needs to worry itself over. Move along now, there's nothing to see here!

Now we have the additional problem that Nancy’s power move might trigger a for real Constitutional crisis. She cannot back down here without undermining the entire legislative branch. This was really not a great play.
Why would she need to back down?

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

Today feels like the kind of day to get an all-caps MAGA tweet from the dotard


On the subject of SOTU, WaPo noted this today:

Quote:
It was unclear how Trump would address lawmakers Jan. 29, as the House and Senate must pass a concurrent resolution for a joint session of Congress to hear the president.

I don’t even have an opinion on whether or not it is good politics, but the speaker of the house telling the potus to **** off in public is extraordinarily entertaining.

Has Pelosi always been this awesome and I just wasn't paying attention before, or has something changed in her in the last few years?

The best part about that letter is that it's gonna force Mitch and Company to have to deal with Trump's temper tantrum.

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

Remember when Sean Spicer left the White House and everyone acted like that made him halfway respectable or something, for no reason?

Spicer defends White House killing nearly all press briefings, saying it's the fault of "B-rate reporters"

Quote:
“They’re making the right call on this,” Spicer said of his successors in the White House press office. “I think that the briefing turned into a circus, where you created a bunch of YouTube stars that were B-rate reporters to begin with that had gotten no recognition in the past.”

Spicer’s comments came a day after President Trump said on Twitter that he told White House press secretary Sarah Sanders “not to bother” with press briefings because he believes that reporters are rude to her and that most members of the media will not cover the administration fairly.

Sanders has not provided an on-camera briefing for more than a month, including the duration of the partial government shutdown.

lol Spicy fails to mention that the gateway pundits of the derpiverse were given press creds by Trump, that's literally the B-raters he's talking about

I think this is why it's good to have both skilled legislators/tactitians like Pelosi and skilled messengers/public faces like AOC. No need to search for some Voltron that serves both roles.

Of course, having someone like Schumer, who seems to be neither, is bad.
