WASHINGTON, D.C.—As the government shutdown battle rages on, President Donald Trump is upping the ante by threatening to cancel Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi's Netflix subscription.
Trump cited the "Constitution thing" as justification for the power play as he made a move to cut off her access from 24/7 streaming entertainment. "You mess with the bull, well, guess what? You get the horns," Trump said. "No more The Office, no more Parks & Rec for MS-13 Lover Nancy Pelosi. You'll see how quick she comes around on my wall."
Pelosi quickly held a press conference in which she stated the Netflix subscription was "absolutely necessary" for her government work.
"How can I be expected to do my job if I can't binge-watch The Andy Griffith Show?" Pelosi said. "This is a matter of national security."
The President has already cut off her Hulu subscription, but she could never figure out the interface anyway, according to sources.
