Honored to have presided on the House floor during the adoption of an amendment from my colleague, fellow Texas Dem @RepFletcher, that will bring much needed relief and resources to Texas residents who suffered under Hurricane Harvey.

@EnriqueDiazAlva In 2005 Stephen Colbert mocked the shit out of George W. Bush at the WHCD, and a lot of Dem insiders were angry, 'it was totally inappropriate to demean the Presidency.' Steny Hoyer was one of them. He's the #2 Dem in the House now. He still thinks that.

OTOH: If skillful, White House could portray SOTU letter as turning point in Pelosi-Dem arrogance/overreach: Vacationing during shutdown, refusing to even come to WH, suggesting Trump not give SOTU speech. WH could portray, with some accuracy, as out-of-control Resistance.
