Nancy Pelosi and Her Post-Oval Office Sunglasses Become Meme

US President Donald Trump pointed Wednesday to the mass shooting at a Christmas market in France to bolster his demands for funding to build a US border wall with Mexico.

Democratic leaders Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer met with President Trump today in the Oval Office and the meeting quickly devolved into a yelling match between Pelosi and Trump. "The reality is that the president's request is entirely reasonable". He summoned the small group of journalists in the day's press pool to watch the negotiation - such as it was - live.

Rep. Kurt Schrader, an Oregon Democrat who's an outspoken critic of Pelosi, said term limits wouldn't be enough to tamp down his quest to see her go.

She adds of the meeting: "It goes to show you: You get into a tickle contest with a skunk, you get tinkle all over you".

Presidents and congressional leaders of different political parties typically try to pass blame for government shutdowns on to each other.

Pelosi and Schumer have a mixed record meeting with Trump.

The encounter only reinforced the fears of White House aides and some of Trump's congressional allies that he is not only unprepared for dealmaking in a divided Washington but also for handling the investigations of Trump and his administration that Democrats are sure to undertake. "I will be the one to shut it down".

"I can't explain it to you". "Let's not change the rules when you have women who have finally gotten there, when you have African-Americans - and why do we make a big deal at this point in time in history that we want to change the rules?" "I will take the mantle of shutting down".

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and a small group of Democratic members seeking to oust her are on the cusp of an agreement that would help deliver the longtime Democratic leader the votes to become speaker again. Out came her gibe about Trump's masculinity.

According to the aide, Pelosi said: "It's like a manhood thing for him". As if manhood could ever be associated with him. "They know how important it is!" We shut it down. "We have to have a wall as part of border security", he said.

For all these reasons, I encourage President Trump to respond to every question about the possibility of a government shutdown over wall funding with three simple words: bring it on! But Pelosi is hardly the only Democrat in the House who is getting ready to make life hard for the president next year. "This was him going back to his comfort zone". His work has also appeared in Salon, Raw Story, Truthdig, National Memo, Philadelphia Weekly, Democratic Underground, L.A. Weekly, MintPress News and many other publications.

Said Trump with a smile: "And then we have the easy one, the wall".

"I said, 'Exactly, '" Pelosi told leaders of her caucus.

No, not Mitch Williams, the hard-throwing 1990s Major League Baseball relief pitcher best known for his time with the Philadelphia Phillies. The longer a shutdown lasts, therefore, the greater will be the pressure on the Democrats to strike a deal.

A senior U.S. counterterrorism official, speaking on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the issue, said: "We do not have evidence of known or suspected foreign terrorist organisations trying to infiltrate the southern United States border".

Pelosi and Schumer had sought a closed-door meeting with Trump in the hopes of resolving their differences ahead of a December 21 deadline, and the duo repeatedly implored the president to continue the conversation away from the cameras and microphones of the left-leaning media.
