Credit to Twitchy favorite Rob Province for catching these two tweets and putting them side-by-side. We’re sure that CNN’s Chris Cillizza would argue that if you read the pieces, you’d understand the reason for the vastly different takes.
Here’s Cillizza yesterday, when Speaker Nancy Pelosi was calling for the State of the Union address to be canceled due to security concerns related to the government shutdown. (The Secret Service later said they were prepared and were never contacted by Pelosi’s office.)

And here’s Cillizza the following day, after President Trump announced the coalition of Democrats headed for Brussels, Egypt, and Afghanistan could fly commercial.
Taking the low road. Always.https://t.co/wvjhbuDCBo

You misspelled Power Move.

Seems more like a power move

Some would call it a "major power move" on Pelosi.

You mean Power Move! Right Chris?

Why do you not find this a power move?

So not a “power move” like you said Pelosi pulled?

Weren't you cheering Pelosi just yesterday?

I see it as more of a Power Move, huh Chris???

This same impartial purveyor of truth just got done telling us that Pelosi's cancelling the State of the Union due to phony security concerns stunt was a "Power Move"….but Trump's stunt was "the low road"?? Do you see now why everyone thinks you are simply a DNC hack?

You are such a partisan parody of an actual journalist it’s actually becoming sad to watch. Pelosi made a “major power move” Trump is “taking the low road.” Honestly you’d be easier to respect if you just owned up to your liberal bias.

Pelosi: Major power play!
Trump: Taking the low road.
And you wonder why nobody takes you seriously?

Yesterday you called what Pelosi did a major power move. The President just said "Hold my Diet Coke" and pulled a major power move showing 2 can play this game.

Right. Because playing games with the SOTU and misleading people about security (ignoring the Capitol Police) is *absolutely* taking the high road.

Odd you were celebrating separation of powers when Pelosi canceled the SOTU Address yesterday but have somewhat different feelings about Trump returning the favor today. pic.twitter.com/x9KaFueybI

Pelosi chose the route…..

She tried to troll the king of trolls.
What'd you think was going to happen?
— Rabid Porcupine 🕊 (@AaronKolbeck) January 17, 2019
Good grief. Where was this shit from you after the SOTU cancellation?
— Deangelo Thunders (@DeangeloThunder) January 17, 2019
Weren't you like all "Yasss Queen" yesterday?

I usually don’t find his antics amusing, but this……this was golden. 😂🤣

Sure looks like a power move to us, or those bags would be halfway to Belgium by now.
