This was like a WWE match.
Which is why I liked it. It shows me that Trump is getting back to his roots here.
President Trump, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer berated each other on camera Tuesday over Trump’s border wall, an Oval Office spectacle that underscored the distance between the two sides as they confront a fast-approaching deadline for a partial government shutdown.
The stunning public spat, during which Schumer accused the president of throwing a “temper tantrum,” ended with Trump declaring he’d be proud to shut down the government to get the money he wants for his long-promised U.S.-Mexico border wall. If the president follows through on the threat, about 25 percent of the federal government would begin to run out of money on Dec. 21, putting hundreds of thousands of federal workers at risk of getting furloughed without pay just before Christmas.
The two sides remain billions apart on border security — the president is demanding $5 billion for a wall, and Democrats will offer no more than $1.3 billion for fencing — and Tuesday’s talks brought them no closer to a resolution. The three leaders pointed fingers, raised their voices and interrupted one another repeatedly as they fought over policy and politics, laying bare their differences for all to see.
Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Schumer (D-N.Y.) had not expected the session to be televised and repeatedly asked Trump to take the discussions off-camera. But the president allowed the acrimonious encounter to continue for nearly 20 minutes before kicking the media out of the Oval Office.
As the argument dragged on, Schumer lectured Trump that “Elections have consequences, Mr. President.”
Trump claimed that, because she is working to nail down the votes to become speaker, “Nancy’s in a situation where it’s not easy for her to talk right now.”
Showbiz has always been Trump’s strong suit. Putting these cockroaches in the spotlight and forcing them to fight on his terms – that means ad-libbing, without scripted lines – was Trump using the terrain to his advantage.
He absolutely dominated Jewish Chuck – who couldn’t even make eye contact and kept his head down the whole time LIKE A BITCH
This live televised fighting just showed America how obstructionist and duplicitous the Dems really are.
See, people are worried about the Wall and border security. Trump does a very good job reassuring his supporters that he’s fighting for that Wall. He says it in unequivocal terms near the end of the argument: if the Wall isn’t built, the government gets shut down.
And boy, was it nasty in some parts. Schumer is grinning and throwing barbs at Trump the whole time, all the while looking incredibly uncomfortable at being in front of the cameras. Like a roach caught out by the kitchen light. Bad optics. He looks exactly like the stereotype of a slimy scheming kike – literally whole time.
Nancy did better, probably because she’s only a wannabe kike. She talked a lot about good faith and how she was surprised to be talking like this in front of cameras… I think Trump got a kick out of putting both of them on the spot.
Pence kept his mouth shut the whole time too, which was sad. This felt like a classic WWE tag-team match, but only one team was tag-teaming.
It gives me hope. Trump’s confrontational personality flares up when he’s in direct confrontation with his enemies and the old Trump shines through.
Calling the cucks and the Dems out to their faces was what won him the heart of America in the first place.
This is great stuff. He needs to do more of it. Make the whole Presidency a Reality TV Show if you must, Mr. President.
Get the cameras to follow you around as you chew-out congressmen that have come to visit you in the Oval Office. Offer the people transparency, if nothing else. Show the American people what it’s like having to deal with these… swamp people day in and day out. You can just pause in the middle of the conversation to look straight at the camera and shake your head slowly as if you’re disappointed at the bullshit you’re hearing.
And I guarantee that America will SMDH with you, Mr. President.
