It didn’t take long for the Democrats to show that they have no intention of engaging in good faith negotiations after President Trump’s capitulation on the government shutdown.
On Friday, Trump stunned many and – drove Ann Coulter to fits of anger – when he agreed to end the government shutdown for at least three weeks in the hope that Dems would accept the olive branch from the White House and come to a sensible compromise on funding and border security.
But as has been the case since Hillary’s loss drove the party mad, Democrats instead spit on Trump’s magnanimous gesture.
Speaker Of The House Nancy Pelosi is still refusing to allow the president to give the traditional State Of The Union Address from the House chamber, a petty and vindictive gesture from a bitch on wheels.
He will not get his pointless wall. He will not deliver his SOTU until he opens the government. He will not beat Nancy Pelosi. She is a strong brilliant experienced public servant. He is a weak childish incompetent fool. #TrumpShutdown

Despite President Donald Trump ending the government shutdown, his State of the Union address is still up in the air.
One thing is for sure, however: It’s not going to take place on Tuesday as originally planned.
“It’s not happening on 1/29,” said Drew Hammill, a spokesman for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
After a series of bitter letters back-and-forth, Pelosi postponed Trump’s Jan. 29 address due to the longest shutdown in U.S. history , citing, among other things, security concerns as those tasked with the high-profile event were not being paid.
“I am writing to inform you that the House of Representatives will not consider a concurrent resolution authorizing the President’s State of the Union address in the House Chamber until government has opened,” the California Democrat wrote Wednesday in a letter to Trump.
What is Pelosi afraid of? That Trump would have a national audience to circumvent the lies and bullshit from the Dems and their media lackeys?
