There was supposed to be an yearly congressional picknick but since President Trump rightly so felt like Congress did not deserve to have one he canceled it upon the spot.
“We will cancel and postpone tomorrow’s congressional picnic,” Trump said. “It does not feel right to have a picnic for Congress when we are doing something really important.” He also added,”It didn’t feel exactly right to me.”
No, he didn’t conquer them though the fledgling mainstream media could paint it did even worse to them.
But there was only 1 problem with the cancellation. The preparations had begun.
It included ribeye Steaks, coleslaw, quinoa, spinach, black beans and a enormous assortment of pies.
Considering that all this food was being ready President Trump decided to do what’s right. Rather than throwing it he made a decision to feed all of the food to Walter Reed hospital patients, caregivers and employees at the Warrior and Family Center in Bethesda.
This was later confirmed by a USO spokeswoman.
The canceled congressional picnic meals, including rib eye beans, spinach, cole slaw, quinoa, black beans and pies, will be served at a lunch now to Walter Reed hospital patients, caregivers and workers at the Warrior and Family Center in Bethesda, a USO spokeswoman tells me.
They’re grilling up some huge steaks here in the White House now – I could smell all of these way out on Pennsylvania Avenue.
What a beautiful gesture, to provide all that high notch meals to American personalities rather than the jokers in Congress.
Update America covered on the canceled party and presentation of a good meal to those who appeared to deserve it far more! “President Donald Trump surprised members of Congress earlier this week when he suddenly canceled the annual Congressional Picnic.
Basically, the president felt like they did not deserve it.
The menu contained”ribeye steaks, spinach, coleslaw, quinoa, black beans and pies.”
That means America’s military heroes are going to be eating very good.
Before this week, the president signed an executive order to keep immigrant families together. Now it is lawmakers’ turn to perform their job.
“We must maintain a Powerful Southern Border. We cannot permit our Country to become overrun by illegal immigrants as the Democrats inform their phony stories of sadness and grief, hoping it’s going to assist them in the elections,” Trump tweeted on Friday. “Obama and others had exactly the same images, and did nothing about it!”
Trump is not the only person who doesn’t appear happy with Congress. Their approval ratings are not doing so well among voters either.
“It is no secret that Congress is not exactly the most popular institution in American government. Now, however, it’s reaching new highs.
Congress sank to a 10% approval rating at a new Quinnipiac University survey published on Thursday, with roughly five in six Americans saying they disapprove of the nation’s legislative body. This contrasts to a 18% acceptance rating in March. And if you are looking for the primary reason behind the fall, look no farther than Republican voters.
But now, that is plummeted to only 14 percent of Republican voters who give Congress a thumbs up. The new figures come following a high-profile effort to redesign and replace Obamacare barely squeaked through the House and failed at a dramatic late-night vote at the Senate.
Congress’s total 10% acceptance is the cheapest to Congress in Quinnipiac’s history of data back to 2003. Using Gallup data past that, it’s the cheapest for Congress in data back to 1974. (Congress did attain a 9% approval rating in Gallup polling at November 2013 at the aftermath of a two-week government shutdown.)
And to make things worse, Republicans have been Congress’s most supportive group. The low figures stretch across each demographic branch — only 12 percent of nonwhites, 12 percent of people under 35 years old, 11 percent of men, 10% of people over 65 years old, 9 percent of women and 9 percent of whites approve.
Support for Congress among independents has also bottomed out, falling from 18 percent in January to just 8 percent today. Democrats have remained basically stable in the single digits.”
