Trump Befuddled Pelosi During Shutdown Meeting. Heh

Sigh. Saturday was another day, with another meeting between the Trump administration and Congress, and still no breakthrough on the shutdown. So it’s back to the drawing board on Sunday. The two sides met for over two hours just like they met on Friday with the same results: nothing, nada, zip. But Donald Trump befuddled Nancy Pelosi with some questions that left her mind reeling.

During one of the meetings, Trump asked Pelosi:

“Why does everyone want to impeach me, Nancy?”

To which Pelosi replied that no one wanted to impeach him, and tried to move back to border security. But the President didn’t let that slide, and he then zinged her about her Catholicism:

“The Vatican has walls. The Vatican has walls surrounding the city. You like the Vatican, Nancy?”

Actually, I would’ve rather he challenged her about why she called a border wall an “immorality” yet has no problem with funding abortion. How does that square up with her Catholic faith?

Pelosi’s answer showed that once again, Donald Trump befuddled her.

“Let’s change the subject, sir.” 

A source says that Pelosi took the comments “not well.” I’m pretty sure Trump was laughing on the inside.

So Pelosi told the President that no one wants to impeach him. Does she think he fell off the turnip truck yesterday?

How about just a couple of short days ago when Rep. Rashida Tlaib took her oath of office and promptly stated — in front of her children yet:

“We’re gonna impeach the mother***er.”

Or when California Rep. Brad Sherman immediately introduced articles of impeachment after the Democrats took over the House:

And then there’s Rep. Maxine Waters, who’s made it her personal crusade to “impeach 45”:

“They say, ‘Maxine, please don’t say impeachment anymore.’

“And when they say that, I say impeachment, impeachment, impeachment, impeachment, impeachment, impeachment, impeachment, impeachment.”

There’s a reason some people call her “Mad” Maxine, isn’t there?

Now Nancy Pelosi knows full well that every Democrat in the House is slavering over the idea of impeaching the President. They all hate him with the fury of a thousand suns.

They loathe him, of course, because he wasn’t supposed to beat the anointed Hillary Clinton. But they despise him for another reason.

Just as Donald Trump befuddled Nancy Pelosi with questions she never expected, he also confuses every Democrat in Congress, as well as the media.

They can’t control him. He doesn’t play nice like nearly every other Republican they deal with in Washington, and so he threatens their power to influence the Executive Branch. And this is not the Congressional gig they signed up for.

In fact, during Friday’s meeting, some Democrats were upset that Trump used the F-bomb during their heated discussions. Like they never ever use that vulgarity, right, Ms. Tlaib?

Carry on, Mr. President. Just as you befuddled Nancy Pelosi, keep the rest of the Democrats guessing your next move. We need that wall.

  • This article exposes the grim truth of political reality in today’s America:
    1) The overwhelming majority of politicians (i.e., the Establishment) are interested solely in their own power, perquisites, and prestige. That those things come at the expense of the well being of ordinary Americans does not trouble them.
    2) Anyone, of either party, who is seen as a threat to those “three Ps” is an enemy of the Establishment and must be opposed by any and all methods.
    3) The Establishment and the major media are mutually supporting. That puts the media firmly on the side of the Establishment. They will lie as much and as dramatically as necessary to support it.
    4) President Trump is opposed to the Establishment and has proved insusceptible to its methods of control. Therefore he must be destroyed.
    5) However, President Trump is immensely popular. Therefore the campaign to destroy him must be subtle and well concealed. Gaslighting and ball-under-the-shirt plays will be frequent.

    All else is merely a special case of the dynamic expressed above.

  • Trump: “Why does everyone want to impeach me, Nancy?”

    That’s a perfect illustration of why Trump so often gets in trouble. “Everyone” doesn’t want to impeach him. That’s not even true of every Democratic politician. Some have the sense to see that as a losing issue. The proper way of putting it would have been, “Why do so many in your party want to impeach me, Nancy?”

    Trump is doing the country a lot of good, but his sloppy language creates unnecessary trouble and offers endless openings for his critics. He does have a knack for befuddling his opponents, but he’d accomplish more if he didn’t sound befuddled himself.

    Trump’s claim that Obama is shielded behind a “ten-foot wall” is another example. Is he? Those who’ve tried to find out can’t get close enough to his house to find out. But a better argument would have been to discover how much Obama’s protection is costing tax-payers and make that his point. He could take the cost of protecting Obama, multiply it by the 300 million people in this country, and then point out how that huge figure contrasts with the few billion he is asking for his wall.

      Ah, a perfect example of “Trump opponents take him literally, but not seriously.”

      And of course it is “everyone”…. in the UniParty, who represent the Ruling Class against the peasants who won’t be ruled..

      • Mongo says:

        Yes, when Trump used the word everyone he meant everyone in the whole wide world, every child in Africa, every tiny baby in Nepal, every old geezer in Timbuktu. /s

        Trump is blessed with idiotic enemies.
        This sounds like a Bill Kristol criticism of him.
        Mindless and vain.

      Dear Michael,
      President Trump’s critics are more mosquito than camel. I’ll write about the camel and you can analyze our president as swatter of mosquitoes.

      First point: He lets them get their heads under the tent, and he smacks the errors out of them. Then he gives them a chance to join him. He did this with the RINOs, and then with the NeverTrumpers, and he is doing it today with the Democrats.

      Do you see?

      I could produce a book-length manuscript on the president Trumping his political opponents over the past few years, but those few words above should suffice to get things started.

      I will wait for you to see the how and why of all this, and hope that you will see it soon.

      Conversion is a beautiful thing.

    Trump is Trump. He got to be a billionaire by being Trump, now everybody is smarter than he is, everybody else knows how to be a better #POTUS and everybody in DC wants to impeach him…
    Maybe a few don’t, but the list is on both sides including and especially Romney setting the example proves that “Everybody” in DC want’s to impeach him…
    So if all you folks are so intelligent why the hell aren’t you working for Trump and being a top adviser of his.
    Trump is in a real reality show, it’s called #POTUS…
    Sheesh…..
