President Donald Trump is RSVPing with a big fat "NO" to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's annual Congressional St. Patrick’s Day lunch on Capitol Hill, Politico reports.
“Since the Speaker has chosen to tear this Nation apart with her actions and her rhetoric, the President will not participate in moments where she so often chooses to drive discord and disunity, and will instead celebrate the rich history and strong ties between the United States and Ireland at the White House on March 12,” White House deputy press secretary Judd Deere told reporters.
The annual lunch on Capitol Hill takes place around St. Patrick’s Day in addition to a White House meeting with the Prime Minister of Ireland and a White House reception where the Taoiseach traditionally gives the president a bowl of shamrocks.
The Congressional luncheon is an ongoing tradition started by House Speaker Tip O’Neill in 1983, who invited President Ronald Reagan to Capitol Hill for the occasion.
Did she expect Trump to show and show out after she has been nothing but disrespectful and rude to him? The witch ripped his his State of the Union address for the world to see, in an attempt to be petty after she failed in impeaching him.
Pelosi also took out the words “high privilege” and “distinct honor” for the traditional introduction of the president for his speech to Congress.
Good on him. I hope he goes and get a nice steak for lunch elsewhere.
