Trump Backs Down; Won't Give SOTU

After Speaker Nancy Pelosi stood on the line and refused to allow Donald Trump to bully her off of it, Donald Trump tweeted late yesterday that FINE HE WON'T EVEN GIVE THE STUPID STATE OF THE UNION ADDRESS GEEZ.
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!
1. "Great."

2. A "great" attempt to look like he somehow "won," which he definitely did not do.

3. I'm pretty sure he didn't write those tweets.

4. Someone is aware he cannot actually win this battle on the current terms. Which is quite scary.

5. I'm really glad that Nancy Pelosi is Speaker, and I hope everyone who said she was past it sniffs some sour milk today.
