Nancy Pelosi is beside herself in rage. Once again, Donald Trump has thwarted her plans for galactic domination. “I’m counting down the hours ’til he’s gone,” she recently told congressional colleagues. She’s convinced that he’s not going to go willingly, even though Democrats stole the election fair and square. “I plan to pull him out of there by his hair, his little hands and his feet.” Of course, the network media gives her a free pass on that. Where are the fact checkers when you need them?
Pelosi didn’t get her pork
Things quickly grew heated when the top four congressional leaders sat down for a meeting on coronavirus relief. Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer stuffed as much pork as they could into the proposal, which Kevin McCarthy and Mitch McConnell signed off on, despite the screams of Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin.
Republicans repeatedly refused to say what amount the President wanted for direct checks. At last, the President has agreed to $2,000 — Democrats are ready to bring this to the Floor this week by unanimous consent. Let’s do it! https://t.co/Th4sztrpLV

They thought they could get away with a coronavirus relief deal totaling around $900 billion, which only gave individual Americans a measly $600 bucks.
Virginia Democrat Senator Mark Warner called the big meeting on Saturday, “wild.” It “was a wild Saturday. People went from losing their temper” to passing $900 billion in assistance for people who mostly lived in other countries.
As soon as President Donald Trump got a look at it, he sent it back to congress. He didn’t say for sure he would veto it but didn’t like what he saw one bit and demanded they go back to the drawing board. Pelosi still has steam coming out of her ears.
Democrats actually thought they could please the president by agreeing to his demand for a $2,000 payment to each American, without pulling out all the useless pork.
Pelosi still wants to get a cut of the goods so she set up another session for Monday to try again.
Shoot themselves in the foot
Despite the last minute maneuvering by Pelosi, Democrats shot themselves in the foot. It all started when squad members Rashida Tlaib and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez thought they could get cute.
They tweeted out that they would love to give every American a quick 2k as if that was all it took to solve the problem. They intentionally ignored all the pork spending and thought they could get away with it. They didn’t.
In an emergency Christmas eve conference call, the principle players hashed it out. Pelosi and the Democrats were shocked to learn that Republicans actually insisted on taking that 2k payment out of the 900 billion they agreed to spend.
That won’t work. Democrats expect to keep their wasteful spending too. It didn’t take long for that debacle to collapse in defeat.
Pelosi will now be conspiring with Joe Biden on the best way to overthrow President Trump and get him out of the White House.
Despite her threats, President Trump has a few moves up his sleeve that Democrats are terrified to even talk about.
