Where is that in the US Constitution?


On the other hand, the US Constitution does give the President the absolute right to call for a joint session of congress.

Trump would be better off holding a rally in a football stadium in Dallas Tx. or other stronghold. He could have jets flying over, tanks rolling around, a rock band blaring the national anthem, fireworks, and a huge banner that read "America is Great again". Mc-Donalds could air-drop Mc-Rib sauce on the audience and sop it up with chicken nuggets and fries like the Clemson lunch. MAGA


In all seriousness I cannot believe he hasn't done this, the Super Bowl of politics. I think liberals would tune in to see that show, minus the whole raining sauce on people part.

apparently pelosi did extend an invitation. but there could still be a hitch according to fox news reporter.



If Pelosi does deny the president's sotu speech because of political disagreements, it would be a bad precedent to set for the future presidents. don't you think? it is possible there would no longer be any sotu speeches unless the president's party holds a majority in both houses.

That doesn't appear to be the consensus.

We would all prefer that, believe me! As long as he leaves the rest of us alone.

I can't wait for the SOTU speech. I'm hoping some of those younger Democrats can yell out YouSuck in unison nice and loud! Or "where's my paycheck Donald?"

Yep. And Pelosi has already told him no such joint resolution will be passed as long as the shutdown continues. He better have an alternative plan for another venue.

You think Trump has the right to invite people to something in the House chamber?

Then I guess you'd be perfectly fine with Nancy Pelosi inviting people to listen to her give a speech in the Oval Office?

Trump has no more legal right to just show up at the House and call it into session than you or I do.
