Skip to comments.Trump Undermines Congressional Authority [semi-satire]

Ordered to vacate the corridors of the Capitol building after Rep. Will Keating (D-MA) complained that he saw a couple of the National Guard troops at a Dunkin Donuts “without wearing the masks mandated by President Biden,” former President Donald Trump’s offer to let them hang out at his DC hotel incited House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif) to add another charge to her impeachment case against him.
“Mr. Trump is no longer in charge of the federal government,” Pelosi ranted. “He has no authority to offer accommodations of any sort to these troops. His doing so is further proof of his intention to undermine the rightful authority of the new Administration and Congress. The troops’ violation of the mask decree was insubordination of the worst kind. Our relegation of these disloyal units to a parking garage was intended as a warning to others who might exhibit unacceptable levels of obedience and respect toward the nation’s rulers.”
“It seems clear that losing the election and facing a second impeachment for sending his supporters to ransack Congress and murder representatives and senators has not deterred this miscreant from further acts of sedition,” Pelosi complained. “We need to add the charge of ‘hostile hospitality’ to our case for convicting Trump and forever blocking him from seeking public office anytime and anywhere.”
A spokesman for the hotel characterized the offer of accommodation as “an expression of President Trump’s respect for those who risk their lives to protect America. There were no strings attached. There was no political litmus test. Rather than see all of these National Guard soldiers forced to camp out on the oil-stained floors of a garage where hundreds of troops had to share a single small restroom, we offered respite to as many as could fit in our lobby because it is the humane and patriotic thing to do. We hope other hotels offer similar consideration toward these brave men and women.”
After this insult, the governors of Florida, Texas, and New Hampshire have ordered National Guard troops from their states to return home. Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-Fla) called the troops’ banishment from the Capitol’s corridors “petty and hysterical. These folks are soldiers. They served our country, all around the world, they’ve served our state after natural disasters, they’re serving right now, helping with vaccinating senior citizens. Their tour of duty as props for the Democrats in DC is over. It’s time for them to come home.”
Meanwhile, President Biden was filmed violating his mask mandate at the Lincoln Memorial. White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki insisted that the violation was warranted “because he was celebrating his ascension to the presidency” and differentiated it from “the more troubling celebrations of ordinary persons that flout the COVID rules. The rules for hundreds of millions of common people need to be more stringent than the rules for the world’s most powerful person. Under our new unity concept, it is the President’s job to celebrate on behalf of everyone else. It is their job to vicariously share his joy.”

Trump is a private citizen, and a hospitality manager. He can offer use of his private property within the guidelines of the federal and state as much as he wants. If they want to turn him down, that’s fine. But that’s up to the Department of the Army and not within the scope of congress. They don’t direct the action of any deploying operations. When the guard people go into the D of C they are in the control of the Dep of the Army and being paid and directed by them.
During federal deployments, which this is because it is not a state, it is not unusual for troops to utilize local hotels and food establishments to sustain operations. Pelosi has a cranial/anal insertion problem. This process has been accomplished by American troops at all levels since the Revolutionary War, everywhere. I think she was around then, but her memory isn’t getting any better than five minutes ago.
She needs an ice cream break. And I have no idea why she has all the different flavors as, like Harris, she won’t remember which one she had last time.
Stupid bytch.......Florida and Texas and another state have called them home.....DeSantis said they’re not under her authority!!
But in the end, Pelosi's "tolerance and compassion" shone through.
She allowed the troops to have two crusts of bread w/ their allotment of water for dinner.
Nancy is the New Commander In Chief don’t you know and the Troops will be used to Kill US citizens
Private Citizen Trump is just offering help to the Troops
