Pelosi describes Trump's 'very serious meltdown' during White House meeting on Syria

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi walked out of a meeting with Donald Trump about the crisis in Syria Wednesday after she said the president had had a “very serious meltdown” and insulted her in front of other congressional leaders.




“What’s really sad about it is that I pray for the president all the time and I tell him that, I pray for his safety and that of his family. Now we have to pray for his health, because this was a very serious meltdown on the part of the president,” Pelosi told reporters on Capitol Hill.

She and other members of Congress had gathered at the White House Wednesday afternoon to be briefed by Trump on his decision to pull U.S. troops from a Kurdish enclave in northern Syria, allowing Turkish forces to invade the region. It was the first face-to-face meeting between Trump and Pelosi since House Democrats began their impeachment inquiry of the president in late September, and it came just hours after the House passed a resolution by a bipartisan vote of 354 to 60 rebuking the president for abandoning Kurdish militias that the U.S. had recruited to fight ISIS.

During the meeting, Trump lashed out at Pelosi, according to Democrats who attended, calling her a “third-rate politician.”

House Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said Trump “was insulting, particularly to the speaker.”

“She kept her cool completely, but he called her a third-rate politician,” Schumer said. “He said that there are communists involved and you guys might like that. I mean, this was not a dialogue. It was a diatribe.”

According to the accounts of Democrats who attended the meeting, Pelosi confronted Trump over his change of policy, saying it had allowed Russian President Vladimir Putin to gain a “foothold in the Middle East,” and telling Trump that “all roads with you lead to Putin.”

Trump seems to have been caught off guard by the reaction to his decision, which was taken without consulting his Cabinet or staff after an Oct. 6 phone call with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. The next day he threatened to “obliterate” the Turkish economy with sanctions if Erdogan’s forces provoked bloodshed in Syria. And on Wednesday the White House leaked an Oct. 9 letter from Trump to Erdogan that struck observers as so out of the ordinary for a communication between heads of state that for several hours journalists treated it as a possible hoax.

“History will look upon you favorably if you get this done the right and humane way,” Trump wrote. “It will look upon you forever as the devil if good things don’t happen. Don’t be a tough guy. Don’t be a fool!”


White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham placed blame on Pelosi and Schumer for the breakdown of the White House meeting.

"While Democratic leadership chose to storm out and get in front of the cameras to whine, everyone else in the meeting chose to stay in the room and work on behalf of this country,” Grisham said.

Trump has faced fierce pressure from members of both parties, including some within his own administration, for his handling of Turkey’s attacks on Kurdish forces. Earlier in the day, he parroted Russian, Turkish and Syrian talking points when he declared that the Kurdish PKK “is probably worse at terror, more of a terrorist threat in many ways, than ISIS,” and signaled that the dispute between Turkey, Syria and the Kurds was  not America’s problem .

“I view the situation on the Turkish border with Syria to be, for the United States, strategically brilliant,” Trump told reporters in the Oval Office before a meeting with Italian President Sergio Mattarella. “That’s between Turkey and Syria. It’s not between Turkey and Syria and the United States.”

After news reports of the contentious meeting with Pelosi and congressional members began to circulate, the president took to Twitter to try to pin blame on the speaker.


The photo Trump shared delighted Democrats, who saw it as the perfect image of the first female speaker standing up to the president, and Pelosi quickly adopted it as the header on her Twitter feed. Trump then continued his attacks on Pelosi, echoing the language she had used to describe him during the meeting.

That's all you will have is a wish. Trump called her what she is and she had a fit and stormed out to the press who she told to wait for her, just like the last three times she got Trumped.

Fuck Nancy.

Except that Trump had already lost his ever lovin shit beforehand because most of the damn gop had actually joined with the Democrats this time to finally condemn Trump's malignant blunders in Syria. I bet Donald "The Clown" never lets you down. Does he? Your hero is headed to Elba...

What is even more telling is that Democrats didn't follow Pelosi out of the meeting.  Another sign that Pelosi is no longer in charge.

Better than that is, at least per Steve Scalise, the remaining people actually had good conversations and questions and answers back and forth with President Trump.

Nancy just had to play to the adoring media praying that she can keep AOC and company from biting her heels like little Chihuahuas.

Pelosi has played this game for a long time.  Pelosi insults people and then takes umbrage if they respond in kind so she can storm out.  So, this is nothing new.

What is new is that only the 'leadership' walked out of the meeting.  Which demonstrates that the followers aren't following; the 'leadership' has become figureheads.

Newt Gingrich did the same thing.  In some ways, Gingrich was Pelosi's mentor.

Yet, Gingrich won't go away.  The corrupt press gives Gingrich a presence he has not earned or deserves.  But that media fandom does not translate to relevance.  Gingrich is only useful for imparting a specific bias into the news cycle.

The same is true of Pelosi.  Pelosi won't go away but her media fandom doesn't translate into relevance.  Pelosi is as predictable as Gingrich.  That only makes Pelosi useful for imparting a selective bias onto the news cycle.

What are you describing is selective bias being injected into the media that is predominately engaged in selective bias.
