Trump Still Plans to Do the State of the Union

Seung Min Kim at the Washington Post: Trump Prepares Two Versions of State of the Union Address as Shutdown Tensions Escalate.
The White House is trying to forge ahead with plans to hold the State of the Union next week, further escalating a political tit-for-tat with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) who requested last week [Donald] Trump delay his address at the Capitol as long as the federal government remains partially shuttered.

Trump is preparing two versions of his annual speech — one that could be delivered in Washington and another that would be held somewhere else in the country, according to a senior White House official.
Of course he is. And no one should be the least bit surprised by this authoritarian shitwheel refusing to abide the Speaker's wishes, because he made it abundantly clear during his campaign what his position on women telling him no is.

That's not intended to be a humorous statement, though I'm sure there are people who will take it that way. The fact is that chauvinist abusers don't respect women, period.

Some of us made that point once or twice before Election Day.
