Nancy Pelosi doesn’t want the State of the Union Address to happen in the House of Representatives. She is citing safety concerns but the truth is she’s just doing this to be a jerk.
So Senator Rand Paul has suggested an excellent alternative.
Want Another Liberal Meltdown? Trump Should Do What Rand Paul Suggested For The State Of The Union
President Trump is a fighter, and he’s taken the government shutdown to new entertaining heights. House Democrats and the Trump White House are duking it out over border security. Trump wants $5 billion for parts of a border wall. Rabid House Democrats, fresh off their 2018 wins, aren’t playing ball. The shutdown has lasted over 20 days, and there is no sign of it letting up. So, with the State of the Union address scheduled for January 29th, Speaker Nancy Pelosi suggested delaying the speech over the shutdown and security concerns, with an emphasis on the latter.
It was total nonsense. The Secret Service even said in any situation they’re prepared to keep the president and the VIP safe. House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-MD) cleaned up a little bit of Pelosi’s mess by saying that the SOTU isn’t officially canceled…
Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) had a suggestion today while on Fox Business’ Maria Bartiromo’s show…why not deliver the address in the Senate chamber.
See Paul’s tweet below:
Senator McConnell is in charge of the Senate. If Mrs. Pelosi refuses to allow the president to deliver the State of the Union in the House, I propose we move it to the Senate and make it happen!

This is an excellent idea!
