Reign of Pain Update: Trump, You Magnificent Bastard!

As we saw yesterday, Nancy Pelosi told the President he wasn't welcome to present the State of the Union event to the House because of "security concerns" relating to the partial government shutdown. According to Secretary of Homeland Security Kristjen Nielsen, the DOH is perfectly capable of providing the necessary security, so Pelosi is lying. Or as John Sexton says, somewhat more politely, Pelosi’s Stunt Is Just More Progressive De-Platforming.

Today, Trump struck back, cancelling the Air Force Jet scheduled to take Nancy and some other Congresspersons to Brussels, Egypt and Afghanistan. Ace: Trump to Pelosi: Owing to the Government Shutdown, I'm Deplatforming You From Using US Military Aircraft for Your Vacation and Campaigning Travel

and documents the twitter whining of the cognoscenti.  Clever how he mentions “flying commercial” just to make clear that she wasn’t planning to.  Well, she won't negotiate the shutdown from Brussels or Afghanistan, will she? Adding further insult they were literally on the bus carrying the delegation to flight outside the Capitol when they were told.

Ace also documents how Pelosi stiffed the  Angel Moms -- Parents of Children Slain by Illegals -- Protest in Nancy Pelosi's Office; Pelosi Refuses to Even Meet with Them
Meet with American citizens over their concerns? What an outdated idea. The only people whose concerns matter to the modern Democrat party are foreigners, preferably those breaking US laws.
"It's a slap, it's a stab, it's a kick in the gut, in the groin," Sabine Durden, whose son Dominic was struck dead in 2012 by an illegal alien, said of Pelosi's and other Democrats' decision not to meet with Angel Mothers.
Apparently Chuck Schumer was also "too busy" to meet with them. . . .

AllahPundit at Hot Air: Freshmen Dems Go Looking For Mitch McConnell To Pressure Him On Shutdown, End Up At Wrong Office. Well that's what they get for following Occasional-Cortex.
The funny part of this isn’t the wrong turn. The funny part is the idea that McConnell, of all people, might be cowed by a bunch of Democrats. It’d be like the Freedom Caucus showing up at Pelosi’s office and demanding she back a balanced-budget amendment. Think she’d be intimidated?
WaFreeBe: Pelosi Struggles to Keep Dems United During Government Shutdown
"There’s a number of us on the Democratic side who are quite concerned that we’re not working on negotiated positions and taking the bull by the horns and trying to think about what it would look like," Democratic congresswoman Elissa Slotkin, a freshman from Michigan, told the Wall Street Journal over the weekend.

Slotkin echoed that sentiment earlier this week, telling the New York Times she believed Democrats "have a responsibility to get in a room and negotiate" with the president.

In response to the criticism and the White House's attempt to court several Democrats viewed as open to compromise, House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (Md.) asserted that the entire conference was "totally united" behind opposition to a border wall.
But House Majority Leader Hoyer On Border Walls: ‘Obviously, They Work Some Places’

Legal Insurrection: Sorry, Democrats: Voters Want Strong Borders and Don’t Think a Wall is ‘Immoral’
According to recent polling conducted by Rasmussen, Democrats are on the wrong side of Trump’s big, beautiful wall argument.
“53% of Likely U.S. Voters think it is better for the United States to tightly control who comes into the country,” says Rasmussen.
Most voters continue to favor strongly controlled borders and reject House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s charge that it is immoral for the United States to build a border wall.
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 53% of Likely U.S. Voters think it is better for the United States to tightly control who comes into the country. Thirty-nine percent (39%) disagree and say it is better to open our borders to anyone who wants to come here as long as they are not a terrorist or a criminal.
The survey was conducted over the weekend, gauging reaction to the current demagoguery.
