Aww! What a shame!

Courtesy of CNN:

The White House has canceled the planned delegation’s trip to Davos, Switzerland, for the World Economic Forum, press secretary Sarah Sanders announced Thursday, the 27th day of the government shutdown.

“Out of consideration for the 800,000 great American workers not receiving pay and to ensure his team can assist as needed, President Trump has canceled his Delegation’s trip to the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland,” Sanders said in a statement.
President Donald Trump previously canceled his own trip to Davos. The Trump-less trip would have been led by Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross, United States Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer and deputy chief of staff for policy coordination Chris Liddell were also scheduled to travel to Switzerland for the annual economic confab.

The annual conference brings together powerful executives, finance ministers and other members of the global elite.
The announcement came hours after the President denied House Speaker Nancy Pelosi the use of a military aircraft for a trip to Afghanistan with a congressional delegation, raising criticism of the administration’s forthcoming overseas travel, which had been scheduled for January 22 to 25.

Sure it was all fun and games when Trump was refusing to allow the Speaker to visit a war zone to gather facts, but now that his pals cannot go to a cool party and mingle with billionaires it’s all tears and smeared mascara. 

The other day I was talking to my daughter and compared Nancy Pelosi’s technique to that of the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu expert Royce Gracie.

Gracie never went in for the big knockout punches or crowd-pleasing takedowns.

What he did was wait for his opponent to make a move and then slowly take advantage of openings to get a better purchase and eventually apply a submission hold that forced the other fighter to tap out frantically. 

I think that describes what Pelosi is doing to Trump perfectly.

And it is certainly a better description than this one by the guy on the Christian Broadcasting Network. 

Yeah Spanky, keep telling yourself that.

    I wish theyd both stop playing checkers and chess and agree to disagree because the only losers in those games are the government workers. Trump and palosi are rich. They dont need jobs, although they are getting paid good taxpayer monies to play their games. I imagine for the citizens being affected by this shutdown it is a serious situation. Unfortunately, we have the selfish babyman holding our our country hostage and palosi trying to get government working again to no avail cuz that sadist mcconnnel enjoys plaing mean politics. I know karma and she will visit these people with a vengence one day.

      I think you made a wrong turn. WingNut Daily is that way—->

      The House has passed numerous spending bills to re-open the government and sent them to the Senate. The Rump’s snappy lapturtle, McConnell (RRR-KKK) has refused (singlehandedly, mind you) to bring them to the floor for a vote. This shutdown is 110% owned by McConnell, The Rump and each of the GOP that don’t stand up to them, publically and loudly.

    How about, given the length of time those good 800,000 federal employees have been unpaid, Congress redirects its pay into a fund for the people who are really hurt by the shutdown? Also, too, how about holding that conference in, say, Bumfuck, Alabama in July. I expect quite a few of the attendees would have urgent business elsewhere.

    Of course Melania was still able to take an Air Force Boeing 757 to Mar A Lago @ $27,000/hour flight costs.
