As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Trump Tears Into Pelosi and Schumer for Meeting-Skipping Stunt

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi today refused an invitation to meet with the president of the United States at the White House, a slight I have not witnessed in 20 years working at the White House and one that borders, given their positions in government, on the unpatriotic.

Schumer and Pelosi complained about a tweet Trump made earlier in the day saying that he did not see a deal happening on a spending bill, an obvious opening bargaining position that the two Democrats decided to use to create a hissy fit.

“Given that the president doesn’t see a deal between Democrats and the White House, we believe the best path forward is to continue negotiating with our Republican counterparts in Congress instead” of showing up at the White House, the two leaders in a joint statement.

  1. Very childish. I work for attorneys. Can’t tell you how many times civil trial gets started with no settlement offers on the table. Jury selection starts and lo and behold a settlement is reached. That’s part of the “game”. Horrible politicians. It’s all about elections and power.

  2. I’m getting extremely sick of the Dems acting like adolescents. I like to watch Tucker Carlson, but the Prog guests with whom he debates are so toxic that I sometimes turn off the sound. I can’t stand to hear their distortions and fake facts.

    • AMEN.
      I love watching Tucker… But I am flabbergasted at how Arrogant & Clueless these “Progressive-Socialist Democrats” are when it comes to common sense, today’s politics & current events and world affairs.

  3. As Trump knows for sure, Pelosi and Schumer are not part of the solution to the problem. Indeed, they are the entire problem. He purposely (IMHO) smoked them out from under the slippery rock they hide under with this meeting deal–knowing full well they wouldn’t attend. Thus, when they refused to meet with Trump, they publicly exposed themselves (again) to be the no-good, vile politicians they are. Brilliant. Trump is always 10 steps ahead of the leftist Democrats and they are just too stupid to figure that out. They’re always going to be playing catch up with Trump.

  4. The difference between a businessman who knows he has to win to survive and politicians who don’t give a rats axx because they think all they have to do is impose more taxes on their subjects.

    You listening, Jerry Brown!!
