The pissing match between President Donald Trump and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi boiled over yesterday as the two sparred over the annual State of the Union address to Congress.

With the government shut down, Pelosi rescinded her invitation to give the speech before a joint session of Congress, citing security concerns. Trump, being Trump, decided to ignore her letter requesting he reschedule for after government workers were back on the job, and insisted โ€œI will be honoring your invitationโ€ despite his lack of one.

Pelosi, never one to back down from intimidation, quickly shot back her own note. The speech requires a vote in both chambers to formally authorize the President to speak to a joint session. She would not, Pelosi said, bring the question to a vote in the House. No vote = no speech.

After all, as Speaker, she has the keys to the house. And Trump was left to sit outside on the stoop and pout.

Later in the evening, Trump tweeted that he would obey and would deliver his speech after his shutdown of the government ended after all.

Pelosiโ€™s casual disembowelment of Trumpโ€™s latest grandstanding was met with some of the most glorious and hilarious means yet โ€“ especially from LGBTQ fans. Here are the best of the best.
