Rep. meadows angry faced spokesman Ryan on the House floor
Tensions spill on House floor over immigration reform; reaction from Fox News political analyst and former speaker of the house of representatives Newt Gingrich.
President Trump gave a great executive order Wednesday.
He canceled the congressional picnic.
In view of the contretemps on Capitol Hill in the last couple of days, it is no surprise Trump nixed the fete planned for the South lawn of the White house tonight.
“It doesn’t feel exactly right for me,” said the President.
The decision comes under the firestorm over the separation of the children of migrant workers, of their parents. Trump noted that the legislature had to fight with immigration legislation on Capitol Hill.
“We can make it another time, when things are going very well,” said the President.
Trump is to move the decision to the picnic disappointed legislators. The picnic is always a cross-party matter, where lawmakers from both parties flock to the White house with their families. The management converts the South Lawn into a virtual midway, complete with rides, live music, cotton candy and funnel cake.
But the people on Capitol Hill were not having fun at least this week. Maybe it’s better that the President eliminated the soiree. The picnic can have, falls into a gigantic brawl, considering how high tensions run in Congress.
Trump went to the Capitol late Tuesday for a meeting with house Republicans on immigration. House Sergeant at Arms “Paul Irving accompanied the President to the Speaker’ s Office. But an unnamed female congressional intern appointed himself to the welcoming Committee.
“Mr. President, f— you!” shouted the woman from the entire Senate side of the Capitol Rotunda. Her words hung in the air for a moment, echoed from the deep, cast-iron ceiling.
The taunt caught the attention of the US Capitol police and secret service. A call went to the police to search for radios, the internal. The officers had a physical description of the Intern, but no name.
Capitol security authorities and the secret service have grown more anxious in recent times, when it comes to the protection of the President to the Capitol. The concern intensified last October, after a member of the public, fake taunted his way into a huge press crush in front of the Senate chamber, the President, and hurled Russian flags in its path.
Fox News is told, officials consider the internal would draw a “person of interest” for a few reasons. First, you want to see if she’s all right mentally, especially the work on Capitol Hill with a hard pass grants access to the entire Convention complex. Secondly, you need to assess whether the Intern is really a threat to the President or, if your pipe was only political, protected by the First Amendment. If the trainee is not a threat, the authorities would be likely to leave in the disciplinary process up to the office, for whom she works.
But it is a different topic. The trainee receives a hard pass for the Capitol. It is not written down anywhere, but some minimum level of decency, that pass.
A source of Fox News suggested that it is problematic when a congressional aide or Intern abused to get your passport to the President and behave in a political fashion. This is not passed, the purpose of the Congress.
Regardless of decorum was gone by the time Trump it has to HC-5, a room in the bowels of the capital, where the Republicans are pushing in the rule. During his speech, trump homed in on Rep. Mark Sanford, R-S. C., recently lost his primary. The President sarcastically chided Sanford for “running a great race.” Trump then called the members of Congress, a “mean guy.”
After the meeting, a senior House Republican member, the President described the remark as “bad form.” Another considered it a “low blow.”
The President took to Twitter on Wednesday, calling Republicans “applauded and laughed out loud”, as he called Sanford.
“It was ridiculous,” said a member of the freedom Caucus. “It cost him votes (on immigration bill).”
A legislator complained, you never know “, which you threw us under the bus,” adding, “here he is, asking for votes, and who of us is next?”
A handful of house Democrats made sure that they got in a word edgewise with Trump during his visit to the Capitol. Congressional Hispanic Caucus chair Michelle Lujan Grisham, and others rushed to the hallway outside the meeting room and waited for the President. If Trump left, the squad held signs, waved pictures and hectored him about the child, the separation of the policy.
Lujan Grisham defends the guerrilla tactics.
“This is an unusual commander-in-chief,” said Lujan Grisham. “This is a very unique set of circumstances, and it requires a unique set of extraordinary efforts.”
A few minutes later, Rep. Carlos Curbelo, R-Fla., was in another hallway, talk in front of cameras from all five TV networks. That is, if Rep. Juan Vargas, D-Calif., faced Curbelo in mid-interview.
“I hope you don’t say them to the people in the cages, Carlos,” said Varga to his colleagues. “You were the one we were hoping, and they have not helped us on this, Carlos.”
“I wish you would be upset if the Obama administration had said the children in cages”, Curbelo.
“You guys are lying,” shot back Vargas.
What is the way this week is courtesy in the Capitol.
It is no surprise that late Wednesday, the house freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows, R-N. C., excoriated the speaker of the house of representatives Paul Ryan, R-Wis., on the floor, while the members watched in shock. It is rare for the legislature to argue publicly with others. It is a further layers to upbraid the speaker of the house on the floor.

It is said that you bring your own weather to the picnic.
Perhaps it is wise of the President, the barbecue was canceled. With the way things are going in this week at the Capitol, tornadic supercells would be likely to lawn, woven by the South.
