Suppose Rump Shows Up at the House to Give SOTU

He was not invited, but does that automatically mean he would be prevented from entering without Pelosi telling the police to stop him? I'm thinking of the optics here. Wouldn't it look better if Pelosi didn't have to lift a finger against him? I just don't know how this would work.

1. He can show up anytime he likes (legally)

 

but must be invited to speak from the lectern. He's not going to do that.

4. And the Speaker has control of the cameras

Paul Ryan turned off the lights and CSPAN on the Dems when they held a protest sit in.

11. I remember that

 

Karma, she be a bit of a bitch. I loved how easily Speaker Pelosi handled donnie. Handed his head to him on a platter with not a hair out of place and with a smile on her face. My fervent hope is that some in his own party sees how a person that isn't a sniveling coward acts and they're embarrassed enough to try it themselves.

2. He has already conceded this one

He announced that he was not going to try to deliver the SOTU on the 29th.

7. Ok, I googled and found that he had said he wouldn't give it

But what the hell are the "alternatives" he's going to explore? Yet another rally I suppose.

3. She could turn off the lights and have everybody go home.

He could give a speech to an empty chamber with no tv cameras.

being held by Democrats.

10. Yup.

9. Nothing says the SOTU has to be broadcast, or broadcast live.

In fact, nothing says it has to be done in person. A letter meets the requirement.

Let him present his propaganda and then provide a video to the MSM so the networks can decide whether to waste more airtime and ad income on a campaign speech or just air snippets as part of the news cycle.
