Hey, look everybody! ThinkProgress wrote something stupid.
It must be a day that ends in Y.

Ooh, a historical precedent? You mean Nancy isn’t the first?! This has gotta be a big gotcha for them, right?
The State of the Union has been postponed in the not-too-distant past, as well. In 1986, President Ronald Reagan was scheduled to give his State of the Union address the same day the Challenger Space Shuttle exploded, killing the seven astronauts inside.
“There could be no speech without mentioning [the Challenger tragedy],” Reagan said that afternoon. “But you can’t stop governing the nation because of a tragedy of this kind. So, yes, one will continue.”
That’s their historical precedent?
With apparent intent to defend Pelosi, they list exactly one 'precedent': 1986 SOTU, when Challenger exploded on day of speech; SOTU postponed a week. Not very instructive.https://t.co/czdcgKLMdp

So they’re comparing Nancy being a petty, vindictive, politics-playing harpy to a national tragedy to defend her.
These people have no shame.
In 1986, it was the Challenger spacecraft explosion.
In 2019, it's the Pelosi brain implosion.

They seriously set her up for that one.
Well… it IS ThinkProgress….

ThinkProgress should change its name to FeelStupid

And we officially EL OH EL’d at this one.
This could totally work, unlike their silly attempt at defending Nancy and her #SOTU stunt.
