Nancy Pelosi sure is one arrogant Dem – have you ever seen one more arrogant? Granted, she seems to be the only competent national Dem – have you seen Biden lately?
What Trump is going to do to him in the debates should be illegal. It will be so ugly – I don’t know how Biden can prepare to avoid it either. He will look like Jeb Bush or Kasich next to someone with Trump’s charisma. In other words, he will shrink and become invisible.
Pelosi has power and she is ruthless in wielding it – don’t let her grandma shtick fool you for one minute.
That said, even though Pelosi and Trump don’t talk they do actually work well together and Trump has shown extreme flexibility in working with her to get deals done for the American people. Hopefully, Pelosi will stop playing games and get on board.
Speaker Nancy Pelosi signaled Thursday that the House is unlikely to return to session later this month, her clearest indication yet that Congress — like the rest of the country — could remain shuttered for weeks or even longer as the coronavirus crisis continues.
In a half-hour interview, Pelosi issued a stark warning to President Donald Trump, urging him not to prematurely reopen major segments of the country before the coronavirus is under control, which she said could further send the U.S. economy into a tailspin.
“Nobody can really tell you that and I would never venture a guess. I certainly don’t think we should do it sooner than we should,” Pelosi said when asked whether she still planned to bring the House back on April 20, which is the current target date.
“This has taken an acceleration from when we started this. … Little did we know then that at this point, we’d be further confined…”
…“I would hope that the scientific community would weigh in and say, ‘You can’t do this, it is only going to make matters worse if you go out too soon,’” Pelosi said when asked whether she was worried Trump, with an eye on a second term in the White House, would try to reopen the country too soon.
Pelosi suggested there are numerous factors that would need to be assessed in making such decisions, including the possibility of secondary infections.
“What is it? Is it testing so that we know what we’re dealing with? Is it some standard as to how someone else would be received into a workplace?” Pelosi said.
“We have to know. It’s data. And that’s something that I haven’t seen as the basis for any decision-making. In fact, I’ve seen the opposite.”
Pelosi also said she hasn’t watched Trump’s daily briefings, in which the president often contradicts himself or offers false or inaccurate statements that his own team of health officials then have to rebut in real time.
“I don’t watch them. I sometimes see inadvertently or just by accident some of the news reporting on it,” Pelosi said of the briefings, which sometimes stretch for more than two hours.
“But I just don’t have time for that. I am a busy person. I have a day job, and it’s not to watch the president contradict himself on TV.”
