Did Nancy Pelosi do something to give Donald Trump the mistaken impression he has leverage here? We don't remember her doing anything like that!

Trump sent Pelosi a letter this morning to say that, despite how she told him to stay the fuck out of her House because of his government shutdown, he would still be coming to the House on January 29 to deliver his State of the Union address. And for some weird-ass reason, Trump and his advisers in the White House actually thought she would back down. It's both hilarious and alarming that Trump and his people are that stupid, isn't it?

Anyway, Pelosi took the dare. She took the dare. Was there anybody besides those dumb fucking idiots in the White House who thought she wouldn't take the dare?

Pelosi sent a letter right back to Trump to kindly explain to him that no means "go fuck yourself," and that if he'd like her to stick her foot further up his ass and kick it around a bunch, he's welcome to test her some more:


The key graf in the letter reads:

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 reopened.

OH YEAH, THAT'S RIGHT. Congress actually has to approve a joint resolution for the State of the Union to actually happen -- a formality under real presidents -- and Pelosi is not in the mood to do that.

For part of today, it seemed like Trump was willing to show up and try to force the issue. (Just check out his pathetic baby tweet from this morning.)

Nancy Pelosi had comments about that possible eventuality:

Good lord, she is throwing a level of shade here that would make Julia Sugarbaker blush.

As for the feasibility of that, what would actually happen if Trump put on his best shit-fitting suit and 10-foot-long red tie and waddled his pork body over to the Capitol and tried to push his way in? A reporter checked into that, because that's a thing reporters have to check into in Trump's America:

The Washington Post had earlier reported that Trump was pushing ahead with his plans to deliver the State of the Union like normal, because that dipshit thought Pelosi was bluffing. At the same time, the White House has reportedly been preparing two versions of a SOTU speech, just in case mean Nancy is for real. Turns out she is! Guess Trump is going to have to turn the event into one of his little Hitler rallies, and the networks will have to face the hard decision of whether to run a Trump Hitler rally as a real SOTU speech, before immediately caving and deciding that yes, they have to do that.

Poor Trump just didn't know what to do when a reporter asked him to react to Pelosi's letter:

"I'm not surprised," he said. "It's really a shame what's happening with the Democrats. They've become radicalized." And he later appeared to have given up on delivering the State of the Union in the House chamber, telling reporters it was "sad" it wouldn't happen in the Capitol and making mention of an "alternative" venue.

Sure, Grandpa Moron, whatever. Just glad you're acknowledging the cold hard reality that Nancy Pelosi is your boss.

Trump added later:

Nancy Pelosi -- or Nancy as I call her ...

Really? His big nickname for Nancy Pelosi is "Nancy"?

Anyway, Trump said she "doesn't want to hear the truth." This from the single biggest liar ever to inhabit the national boundaries of the United States, much less the White House. OK sure, President Full-Of-Shit.

We don't have anything else to say about this besides that Nancy Pelosi is queen of the entire world (and Rebecca says you can click that link and put her on your manly or womanly chest, by buying a Pelosi t-shirt!), and Donald Trump becomes a bigger loser each and every day of his failed life.


To close out this post, let's watch the loser officially giving up and saying that "we'll be doing something in the alternative," since he's been deemed too stinky to darken the doors of Nancy's House:

'Bella" by Wonkette Operative 'IdiokraticSubpoenaKommissar'

Sunday already, which means a substantial portion of US America is preparing to be astonished/heartbroken/outraged by the series finale of that show with the dragons, while another portion is just going to stay off Twitter for three days because nothing will make any sense. Yr Dok Zoom tends to come very late to trendy things, so get ready for our own thoughts on the gamy thrones show sometime in about 2023, or never. But we'd be glad to tell you just how much we enjoy the brilliance and humanity of the Cartoon Network series "Steven Universe," which debuted in 2013 and we started bingeing on the Hulu last month, late again.

Hell, we still want to talk about that one Mrs Landingham episode of "The West Wing," which we first watched years after it aired (We finally bought our new used car yesterday, and know one thing: don't drive over to the White House to show it off to President Bartlet). We might even get around to reading Infinite Jest someday. We hear it has something to do with a superhero team and a guy named Thanos. So hey, let's talk about culture and missing out and patching together some knowledge of what's happening anyway.
