Trump invites Pelosi and Shumer into the Oval Office to humiliate him in front of a silent Mike Pence

Someone apparently thought that it would be a good idea for Donald Trump and Mike Pence to invite Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer into the White House today to discuss border security in front of live television cameras. I guess the thinking was that Trump would make them look weak and cowardly. Well, that’s not what happened. Pelosi and Schumer, after agreeing with Trump on the need for border security, then began to systematically tear apart Trump’s argument for the wall, noting not only that it would be costly and ineffective, but that he lacks even the support of Republicans in Congress. By the end, Trump looked like an angry baby, threatening to shut down the government if he didn’t get his way. And that’s not an exaggeration. Here’s the video of Trump saying, quite clearly, that it wouldn’t be the fault of the Democrats if the government came to a standstill over this, but his fault alone. [This, you can be sure was the not the framing that the Republicans wanted.]

Word is, after the meeting, Trump “stormed out” of the Oval Office, throwing a folder full of papers, irate that Mike “elf on the shelf” Pence had just sat beside him, with his eyes closed, pretending as though he were someplace else, as Pelosi expertly picked him apart, and Shumer made jokes at his expense.

Returning to Congress after the meeting, Pelosi, according to reports, said the following about Trump and his wall. “It’s like a manhood thing with him — as if manhood can be associated with him,” the incoming Speaker of the House said.

Trump, for what it’s worth, also lied about the status of his wall during today’s meeting, saying, “Tremendous amounts of wall have already been built, and a lot of — a lot of wall.”

For this of you who might not know, none of the wall has been built. Not even a single foot. Congress did, earlier this year, appropriate funds for increased border security, but it was with the stipulation that not one dollar be spent on the construction of the ridiculous wall that Trump promised the uneducated, xenophobic base of the Republican party. In spite of that, though, Donald Trump has said some 86 times that construction is underway, earning him an unprecedented “Bottomless Pinocchio” rating from the Washington Post fact checker.

If you follow the previous link, you’ll be taken to an interactive Washington Post website, where you can move your cursor over an enormous pile of Pinocchio heads, reading quote after quote fro Donald Trump, like this one from March 29… “We’ve started building our wall. I’m so proud of it.”

And here’s another example from earlier this morning.

For what it’s worth, Trump didn’t just lie about the status of the wall today. He also lied about it’s necessity, saying that ten terrorists had recently been caught trying to cross the border into the United States. When asked if they could identify these ten terrorists, Homeland Security today said that they could not.

If what we saw today is any indication of what awaits us as the Democrats retake control of the House, these next two years are going to be one hell of a ride.

    And yet it’s impossible for all the rational analysts to assess how the Agent Orange cult traitors saw this episode through their pumpkin colored glasses. The potential for stochastic terrorism is “unpresidented”.

    Trump responded yesterday by threatening civil war.

    “People would revolt” if I were impeached, he tells the Des.

    Huh!

    https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/dhs-unveils-trumps-first-completed-border-wall-project-walls-work

    Construction of the 30-foot, 2.5-mile-long wall began in February and lasted eight months. Nielsen watched as welders affixed a sign to the wall to commemorate the event. It’s now the tallest barrier on the entire 2,000-mile-long southwest border.

    HW– That portion of the wall is an exact replica of the wall sections rebuilt by Obama along the ElPaso border and other highly trafficked places. It is in no way new, just part of the regularly scheduled upgrades. These “Trump’ sections were funded by last years border security budget– the same budget Trump rejected for the coming year, threatening to shut down the government because it didn’t have funding for ‘his wall’

    Either Congress did fund his wall last year and your link shows that and Trump is lying. Or Congress did not fund the wall last year and Trump is telling the truth and you are lying.

    Here is an image of the same style of border wall between El Paso and Juarez:

    Oh I missed this. The Trump sections are 3 feet higher than the Juarez/Ysleta sections shown. And all of 2.5 miles long! Maybe Pelosi had a point about Trump’s wall being an expression of his manhood… or male insecurities (same things).

    How is it not new? It was built this year. Furthermore if Obama built any bit of a wall then he must be a bigot and all that shit you say all the time.

    HW– I disagreed strongly with Obama’s immigration policies. I understood the bargain he was trying to strike to get to comprehensive immigration reform. I thought it would fail and it did. It was a concession to bigotry and fear, yes. Trump. on the other hand, runs on bigotry and fear. And his immigration policies manage to make the terrible and economically regressive even worse, by many times. And none of that has anything to do with the height of his wall…

    I don’t know HW. Your doppelganger seems at least to enjoy himself a lot more than you do.

    Given how inconsequential this all is, I’d say he’s winning.

    It’s not like you are some poster child for responsible adult behavior, HW. You really can’t reasonably make an argument based on your maturity.

    Any discussion of new wall or the cost of it is a moot point. Cheeto said repeatedly that the Mexican government would pay for it, not the American taxpayer. His promise. Why is the funding even a discussion, HW?

    He said one way or another they will pay, not that they will just put up the money. USMCA will probably get us all that and more from Mexico.

    CFO of Clinton Foundation Andrew Kessel and others have turned over thousands of documents to investigators.

    Posted December 12, 2018 at 8:10 pm | Permalink

    Yes. HW, when an organization is investigated, the CFO etc will usually turn over the materials requested. That’s how it’s supposed to work. It looks like the Clinton Foundation is a hot mess at the top. particularly where Bill is concerned. That doesn’t surprise me all that much. I have heard nothing about child sex rings so far, however…

    Ps the ‘whistle blower’ was not someone internal to the Clinton Foundation but a private firm researching tax filings etc from the foundation. Kesler is cooperating with the senate investigation but he did not volunteer the information or ‘whistle blow’

    Oh god, how can you be so dumb? Kessler turned over a crapload of information and is presumably covered under whistleblower laws. This bizarre rationalization you do doesn’t work. You’ll know it soon.

    Lots of whistleblowers around. One got raided by the FBI recently. Why might the FBI raid a Clinton Foundation whistleblower right now do you think? Cuz they’re bad? Yeah, it’s rilly bad to blow the whistle on deep staters like the Clintons.

    Trump needs to dump Pense. He’s not showing enough enthusiasm for the shit-show. He needs to be replaced with Dennis Rodman or something.
