Rich started the show by talking about Trump’s response to Nancy Pelosi asking for a State of the Union postponement by asking that she postpone a foreign trip using military aircraft.  In a letter to the speaker, Trump wrote, “Due to the Shutdown, I am sorry to inform you that your trip to Brussels, Egypt, and Afghanistan has been postponed. We will reschedule this seven-day excursion when the Shutdown is over. In light of the 800,000 great American workers not receiving pay, I am sure you would agree that postponing this public relations event is totally appropriate.”


In today’s Drive at 5, Rich spent most of the time talking about Trump’s response to Nancy Pelosi demanding that he postpone the State of the Union due to security reasons, in which he asked Pelosi to postpone a trip to the Middle East due to security reasons. The Democrats who were preparing for their trip were on a bus on the way to an airport when they heard the news, and spent time driving in circles around Washington, D.C. while they figured out what to do. Rich also focused on the media coverage surrounding Trump’s response, in which he was called ‘childish’, contrasting it to the same media sources calling Pelosi’s original demand a ‘power play’. Rich also discusses the shutdown itself, pondering why only Republican government workers are being asked their reaction by media outlets, which clearly points to agenda-driven news reporting. Also, Rich takes aim on Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, after she tore into Trump in her first floor speech, in which she said that Trump is eroding ‘American Democracy’.
