Queue the selfie of her flying 1st class for that junket on her own dime eating McDonalds.

Oh, look.
He's being petty and infantile.
How completely unexpected.

He isn't in charge of the purse strings, obviously, if that's what you mean. Otherwise he says whatever he wants anyways. You're guess is as good as mine if it's anything tangible.

Not sure if they have first class while flying into a warzone.

Before this announcement, Scalise let it slip to the press that she was planning on going to Afghanistan, breaking security protocols.

Correcting myself here- Apparently you can fly from Dehli to Kabul first class on Air India.

Great question. I would be shocked if Congressional Delegations (CODEL) money was covered by the Executive Branch. Although a lot of times they use federal government facilities... I'm not sure he can do this without doing the same to everybody.

But she's worth north of $100 million. She could charter her own plane and fly everyone she wants on it. She should charter a plane, go, and then take a selfie of herself giving the camera the finger when she gets there.

This is what passes for governance in a collapsing, ineffective, delusional administration.

I will dance on the farking ashes when it finally occurs.

Really neat how Sanders, vapid twat that she is, thinks this makes Trump look good.
 
2019-01-17 02:36:02 PM  
Trump has no idea how any of this works.
 
2019-01-17 02:36:23 PM  
If he can do that, fine.  She can still go on her own dime.

It's dumb on so many levels, though. She can still go. He can't give the SOTU speech on the House on his own dime (like he'd spend a dime anyway).

2019-01-17 02:36:48 PM  
It's just so, when she inevitably goes anyway, he can say "Look at the selfish pig taking a vacation on the taxpayers' dime while the government is shut down!"

 Huckabeast, Steven Miller, and Donald are all huddled around the Resolute desk giggling right now.

I can hardly wait till we get Speaker Pelosi's response to this.

He can.  Sort of.

He'll try to broadcast from the oval or some other location - the networks will have to debate whether to show it, though obviously Fox News will be all over it.

So this has nothing to do with refusing to pay just that he blew up her security by announcing it.

Well, she was probably going on a military flight, as well, so he can ground those planes.

And Trump has no idea of the ramifications of what he just did.  To him this was just a sick burn.

There won't be a debate. If it's the State of the Union, it will get broadcast in its entirety, no matter where it's given from.
 
2019-01-17 02:43:56 PM  
If I'm reading this right, the President just burned Pelosi. He can't really prevent her from going on a junket, but specifying that she was going to Egypt and especially Afghanistan forces her either to cancel the trip, or to go amid increased security concerns. Loosely interpreted, the President is trying to get Speaker Pelosi killed.

I have a feeling they might be more presidential acting than he is right now. Even if he thinks he has the reins, he doesn't have the gravitas and dignity the officeholder needs to have to be considered presidential at all.
 
2019-01-17 02:47:05 PM  
So sue him.

Isn't revealing state secrets and jeopardizing the safety of a legislator some kind of godamn crime?

Or does nothing even matter anymore?
 
2019-01-17 02:49:13 PM  
If I knew this sort of behavior was acceptable I would have wanted Obama to shut down the government until the GOP tacked on 5.7b in abortion funding to his budgets.
 
2019-01-17 02:50:45 PM  
He can withhold military assets as the commander in chief.

However if he doesn't cancel all congressional delegations or his team's trip s to Davos using military assets, then it comes across as using the military as a partisan prop.

again.
 
2019-01-17 02:51:44 PM  
he just said, Nancy, take your own plane, not mine.  Finally, someone with the balls to not do business as usual.

I would love for Pelosi to subcontract the response out to AOC.  Just once.

Or business at all, judging by his desire to shut down the government.

They have argued before that the president can decide on the fly what is classified. As an explanation for giving the Russian ambassador secret info.

How did I defend him.  I just stated the facts.  No president until now has had the gonads to do what Trump is doing.  That's part of the reason he is hated by the left.  He is taking care of problems that have been a staple of the democrats agenda.  The ongoing immigration crisis at our southern border has been going on since the 80's at least.  Grounding Pelosi's plane hours before she was to take off on a presser?  priceless.

They were set to go on a military plane.  Apparently, he can, and has, grounded that plane.  shiats gettin' real, yo.  Pelosi gave some payback to a member just yesterday, this will really really piss her off.  Rightfully so.

It is astounding that ANYONE trusts Trump with ANYTHING.  The least trustworthy human being on the planet should not have any access to anything of any importance in any way.  When is this asshole's physical form just going to give in and embrace the monstrous stroke or heart attack that is on the horizon?  What is holding these events back?  His extreme narcissism? Does ego improve one's health?

I'll agree to use the 80s Republican solution to the crisis.

Asylum to all current residents and expand the number of work visas.

It isn't his plane. It is property of the US government.
