Leader Pelosi

How do you spell leader? Today, I spell it this way: Rep Nancy Pelosi (D - CA).

In a recent meeting at the White House, Leader Pelosi stood tall in the face of a bellowing, bully-child-man. Yes, this woman knows a thing or two about facing down the tissue-thin monstrosity currently occupying the Peoples’ House. And, she did, too, unlike hundreds of "tough-as-steel-type" male politicians.

Here’s the story…

How Nancy Pelosi Masterfully Dismantled Trump, Emily Peck, Huffington Post, 12 Dec 2018.

 “At the outset, she set Trump back on his heels by naming the possible government shutdown “the Trump shutdown,” and sending him into a kind of tailspin. (“Did you say Trump?” he asked incredulously.)”

“Trump tried every sexist tactic in the book in an attempt to diminish the 78-year-old Pelosi: He repeatedly interrupted her, tried to mansplain to Pelosi who is the former, and likely future, Speaker of the House how Congress works, and even talked about her in the third person as if she weren’t there.”

“I was trying to be the mom,” Pelosi said, according to Politico, but “it goes to show you: You get into a tinkle contest with a skunk, you get tinkle all over you.”

And, then, this:

“It’s like a manhood thing with him — as if manhood can be associated with him,” Pelosi reportedly said. “This wall thing.”

I'll bet 10 cat's eye marbles that Leader Pelosi doesn't need a wall to prove she's The Leader.
