She's doing her constitutional duties.
Bonus point, that is how a lady tells a douche to STFU.
You want to bet your life that he didn't just get fired and is feeling a bit salty?
"Houston. Tranquility Base here. The Eagle has landed."
The year before women were admitted to Colorado Springs, many of the 'officers and gentlemen' had inscribed on their class rings "The last class with balls".
This retired woman senior noncom sincerely hopes a few of those dick wavers wound up subordinates to those women.
Speaking of balls: The answer I gave to a punk who told me he wasn't gonna work for a goddam broad. "You're right. You'll work for a goddamn sergeant. Say or act upon that again Airman and I'll have your balls for earrings."
I have no doubt they'll all do fine. No one spends four years in the academy Waring Blender, survives and thrives, then comes out a plush toy.
They couldn't survive a day of the prep course, let alone 4 years.

From The Oxford Companion to American Military History
Until well into the 20th century, disease, rather than the effects of enemy weapons, was the the single most important producer of casualties.
Percentage of disease casualties to overall:
Revolutionary War: 90%
Civil War: 71%
Spanish America War: 30%
Note the significant drop between 1865 and 1917. The vaccine for typhoid, also called the soldier's disease, was developed in 1898. In 1911 the entire US military had been vaccinated for it.
She did not; she can not. All she did was tell Moron: Not in my House until the federal gov't gets back to work.
The Constitution requires the president to inform "from time to time" congress about the state of the union and make any recommendation he believes necessary. There isn't a mumbling word in the owners manual how he does it or what day he does it or where he does it. All the theater is just tradition.
He can give a SOTU from the Oval Office tomorrow night or dispatch a carrier pigeon with note on its leg over to the Capital or use any form of communication he chooses. He does not have to run his mouth and lie like rug to a captive audience next Tuesday.
