Trump, Pelosi, Schumer Debate in Public

 

Ignoring the content for a moment of this video, I just want to say:  I love this.  I love that this exchange took place in front of the American people.  Pelosi wanted to shut down the disagreement, to go behind closed doors, cut some sort of deal, decide how to couch it to the American people, and claim they got agreement on something.  I love it.

    It’s called transparency, Nancy.

    But if we’re transparent now, the voters may expect it in the future.

    I love it. Pelosi lectured Trump about how “open” and “transparent” the House was going to be under Democrats, then tried to exclude the camera’s from the meeting, so that she and Chucky could lie and spin about the meeting.  And Trump blocked it.

    And poor Mike Pence.  He just had to sit there.  You know he wanted to backhand Chuck Schumer.

    I don’t advocate violence against women.  I was mostly joking.  Don’t back hand Pelosi.  She’s pretty old now and it might kill her.

    I only wish there was a bubble above Mike Pence head, broadcasting his every thought during the discussion. :)

    It’s hard to say. I figure the Botox has to offer at least some level of protection.

    The more Trump can keep her speaking in public the better: she and Hillary are neck and neck in the Not aging well or gracefully stakes. The woman isn’t healthy. I attribute it to the massive drug inventory she’s been using and being subjected to in her plastic surgery adventures. She’s not healthy and the public should see it. Friendly media doesn’t show it any more than they show Hillary walking anywhere.

    Was this supposed to dissuade?

    I was thinking of going with “But you’re still advocating that someone backhand Schumer.”

    Pulling back the curtain, as President Trump has consistently done. I’m surprised that Pelosi even asked to go off camera. This is how President Trump has repeatedly operated.

    I dunno.  I think that “Chuck and Nancy” maneuvered Trump into saying that he would be proud to shut down the government.  

    Also, I think that Pelosi nailed down the Speakership today.

    Chuck and Nancy have been in gubmint too long.  She needs a better foundation garment and he needs someone other than an undertaker to do his makeup.

    I remember the Gingrich Government shutdowns of November 14-19, 1995, and December 16, 1995 to January 6, 1996.  That was insane and this is insane.

    Meh. Now in the next-to-zero probability I’m ever President, you’d get government shutdowns that mean something. I expect the government shutdown would last about three out of four years of my term. 

    I’d tell Congress to send me a budget that actually cut spending and then accept the shutdown just to prove I was serious. Then I’d remove the shutdown one department at a time. Some I might never start back up.  Maybe, maybe if they sent me a budget that cut enough spending I might bring it fully back online.

    I can’t give you enough likes for that scenario!  Can I be your Vice President?
