Our Take: Pelosi’s White House Meltdown

Whenever Democrats claim to be interested in “negotiating” with President Trump, they are doing nothing more than planning another publicity stunt. In the process, they are also testing to see just how gullible they think the American people truly are, with predictable results for all.

It takes a whole new level of audacity for Democratic leaders to think that after spending months labeling President Trump a criminal, a traitor, and an illegitimate president, they can suddenly sit down with him at the table to try to discuss the day’s issues as if nothing happened, and to expect the President to believe they are acting in good faith. It is patronizing and only represents the Democrats’ efforts to save face and attempt to project civility where there is none.

For these reasons and more, President Trump is right to call out these bogus meetings for what they really are, and to point out what utterly dishonest politicians the Democrats have become.

The fact that Pelosi’s meltdown at the White House was triggered by the President referring to her as a “third-rate politician” indicates how much that line truly hit home for Pelosi; that she then tried to claim that only politicians understand “the art of the possible” is only further proof of how spot on the comment was.

The American people voted for Donald Trump specifically because he was not a politician, and he still is not even after almost three years in office. When President Trump refers to them as “politicians” in a derogatory fashion, he is only expressing what is on most Americans’ minds, and demonstrating why he was elected in the first place.

Breitbart: Democrats Abandon White House Meeting on Syria Citing Donald Trump ‘Meltdown’

By Charlie Spiering

A White House meeting between President Donald Trump and members of Congress blew up after the foreign policy establishment tried to convince him to keep American soldiers in Syria and act to defend the Kurds.

Members of Congress were deeply disturbed by Trump’s remarks on Wednesday, as he spent the majority of the day defending his decision not to engage militarily in Syria against the Turkish attack on the Kurds.

The House sent a strong rebuke to the president, voting 354-60 on a resolution opposing Trump’s foreign policy decisions in Syria.

After the vote, Trump hosted a bipartisan meeting with top Congressional leaders at the White House, including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and other members of Republican Congressional leadership.

But the meeting did not last long.

Trump described House Speaker Nancy Pelosi as a “third rate politician” according to Sen. Chuck Schumer, prompting Democrats to walk out.

“He was insulting, particularly to the Speaker, she kept her cool completely but he called her a third-rate politician,” Schumer said to reporters at the White House after they walked out the meeting. “This was not a dialogue, it was sort of a nasty diatribe not focused on the facts.”

Pelosi said that Trump had a “meltdown,” repeating previous accusations after meeting with the president.

“What we witnessed on the part of the president was a meltdown, sad to say,” she said.

She also detailed her response to Trump

“I said, ‘I wish you were a politician Mr. President, then you would know the art of the possible,’” she said.

According to Schumer and Pelosi, Trump also told Democrats that some of the members of ISIS were “communists” which “that might make you happy.”

Schumer said that McConnell told Trump that his decision in Syria was “wrong” and challenged the Senate Majority Leader to bring up the House-passed resolution in the Senate.

White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham denied parts of Pelosi’s account but described it as predictable.

“While Democratic leadership chose to storm out and get in front of the cameras to whine, everyone else in the meeting chose to stay in the room and work on behalf of this country,” she said in a statement, defending Trump as “measured, factual and decisive” in the meeting.

Grisham called Pelosi’s decision to walk out of the meeting “baffling, but not surprising.”

“She had no intention of listening or contributing to an important meeting on national security issues,” she said.

Trump shared photos of Speaker Pelosi on Twitter, accusing her of having a meltdown.

House Republicans also spoke to reporters at the White House when the meeting was finished.
