There’s no love lost between President Trump and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.). That was quite evident when negotiations between them fell apart in a matter of minutes on Wednesday.
Trump showed up for a meeting with Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) over bipartisan efforts to approve an infrastructure plan, but Pelosi set the tone of the meeting by accusing Trump of being “engaged in a cover-up” regarding the Russia investigation.
And she did that just minutes before the meeting started, according to Fox News. No surprise it didn’t go well.
“The president stormed out, pounded the table, walked out the door,” the House speaker claimed on Thursday. “Another temper tantrum, again, I pray for the president of the United States. I wish that his family, the administration, and his staff would have an intervention for the good of the country."
Trump said Pelosi was lying about his attitude during the meeting, writing on Twitter, “I was extremely calm yesterday with my meeting with Pelosi and Schumer, knowing that they would say I was raging, which they always do, along with their partner, the Fake News Media. Well, so many stories about the meeting use the Rage narrative anyway — Fake & Corrupt Press!”
And then he went on camera to take a hilarious shot at both Pelosi and Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders.
“This happened to me once before with the same group,” Trump reminded reporters as he spoke to them from the White House. “Cryin’ Chuck...I don’t want to say ‘Crazy Nancy,’ because if I say that you’re going to say it’s a copy of ‘Crazy Bernie,’ and that’s no good, because Bernie definitely is crazy.”
“I think she’s got a lot of problems,” he said, adding that Pelosi is still having a hard time dealing with the fact that he won the presidency. “She is a mess.”
Also during the press appearance, Trump spoke about the consistency of his beliefs over the years, adding, “I haven’t changed very much. Been very consistent. I am an extremely stable genius.”
His tongue-in-cheek remark was met with friendly laughs from the audience.
