You have probably heard that President Donald Trump and the Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi are in a bit of a tiff already, but what you may not now that the Speaker of the House has the power to uninvite the President to the House.
And that’s exactly what she did! She was like “No, thank you, please.”
Her reasons are actually security-related: while the President throws a tantrum about his beloved wall on the border, the government is closed, and even Republicans are saying that the wall is a giant waste of money and it won’t work. So, it means that there is no security, and the entire Presidential line of succession would be without protection. It’s a fair concern.
Trump since decided to throw a temper tantrum and cancel the availability of military planes and protection for Nancy Pelosi’s diplomatic trip to Belgium and Afghanistan to visit the US troops, because apparently, it is “irresponsible spending” with the shutdown and all.
It all makes sense, right? Well, tell us why the First Lady just boarded a $35,000 Air Force flight to Florida yesterday?
Apparently, there were two other very common options that would cost much less money, Air Force C-37A which would have cost around $20,000, or a commercial flight that would cost around $750 (similar to the one Pelosi ought to do).
So, it turns out that the President literally doesn’t care at all about all the workers affected by the shutdown.
It’s safe to say that people on social media were not having it at all!
