Tired of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s tactics, Rand Paul has now made his own suggestion regarding President Trump’s State of the Union address.
Appearing on “Fox & Friends,” Paul noted that Pelosi’s request is a “real affront to the American people.”
Looking to solve the problem, the senator offered his own suggestion.
“What I would suggest is — Senator McConnell’s in charge of the Senate; let’s host it in the Senate,” he offered. “This would be the first time in history that the House would deny the president the forum of speaking. If she’s going to do that, let’s hold it in the Senate.”
To be fair, Paul did make the announcement shortly after Sen. John Kennedy blasted Pelosi and made a similar proposal.
“We both know why she’s doing it. It’s just another poke at the president. I think they need to stop poking each other and try to come to the table and work this out. If I were the president, I would hold it. He can come to the Senate,” Kennedy told IJR.
Other Republicans have also decried Pelosi’s latest move, with Sen. Ted Cruz noting that Pelosi had demonstrated “how extreme and radical congressional Democrats are.”
Newly elected Rep. Dan Crenshaw also condemned Pelosi’s actions by saying, “It’s a terrible precedent to set to disinvite the president from the State of the Union.”
