The State of the Union won’t be happening anytime soon.
Although Trump agreed to partially reopen the government through February 15, he postponed the address until after the government is fully reopened.
TMZ caught up with Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY).
They asked if she’d shake the president’s hand.
Her response says a lot.
Reporter: “Will we be seeing you in the front row extending your hand?“
AOC: “You know, probably not my hand, but I’ll be there and present to see, and, and listen to what is going on.“
Not your hand? What else would she extend?
Welcome to politics in the Trump era.
Ocasio-Cortez is everything that’s wrong with America. She knows little of which she speaks.
Even worse, she has loyal followers who bend their ear to every word she says (or writes).
AOC is now comparing President Trump to a member of the Ku Klux Klan
“Build a wall of steel, a wall as high as Heaven” against immigrants.
– 1924 Ku Klux Klan convention
We know our history, and we are determined not to repeat its darkest hour.
America is a nation of immigrants. Without immigrants, we are not America. https://t.co/3dePiGFQAL

This is called pandering.
AOC can do it with the best of them. Shame.
There are some things a person just never expects to see.
One of those things would be far-left Whoopi Goldberg telling even further left Ocasio-Cortez to shut up for being such a loudmouth.
But it happened.
WATCH (start at 2:20)…
POTUS was recently asked about Ocasio-Cortez. His response was perfect.
He only needed two words.
“WHO CARES?” Classic Trump.
Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) told Trump he had to delay the State of the Union address during the partial government shutdown.
He said he was going through with it as planned on January 29.
He planned to forge ahead.

Now, things have changed.
Trump has decided to officially postpone.
President Donald Trump announced on Wednesday night that he had changed his mind about having an “alternative” event instead of the State of the Union address, saying he will wait till the shutdown is over.
Did Trump cave or was this the right move?
Of course, giving the address from the House chamber is what needs to happen.
But given this shutdown may last for a good long while, can Pelosi say she got one over on the president?
Time will tell…
