Since last year’s US House Elections?
Donald Trump has HAD to live with something he has almost never death with….
A smart woman…
It would seem that all thru his adult life he has looked at women as subservient to him…
THAT is N OT the situation he has been dealing with since the beginning of 2019….
The Democratic House Speaker seems to be outmanuvering the Republican President art almost every turn…
And by his recent tweets and comments out loud?
It’s eating him up….
A QUICK REALITY CHECK … PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP tweeted this — in part — on Christmas: “Why should Crazy Nancy Pelosi, just because she has a slight majority in the House, be allowed to Impeach the President of the United States?”
WELL, DEFINE “slight.” Speaker NANCY PELOSI started out this Congress with a 36-seat majority — which is the fifth-largest of all majorities since the 105th Congress, in 1997-1999. PELOSI had the largest majority in the last decade — 79 seats — which came just after BARACK OBAMA won the White House, between 2009 and 2011. The smallest majority was seven seats, between 2001 and 2003. Republicans held a 19-seat majority when they impeached BILL CLINTON.
IT’S POSSIBLE that Trump has never fundamentally understood the power shift in Washington brought about by the 2018 midterms. He went from dealing with an all-Republican Congress to having to fend off a ferocious Democratic majority in the House that has largely held together despite its geographic and ideological diversity. That is one reason, perhaps, that he finds himself impeached heading into 2020.
ALSO: This missive from TRUMP came after this presidential message: “Together, we must strive to foster a culture of deeper understanding and respect—traits that exemplify the teachings of Christ.”
IN CASE SAN FRANCISCO DEMS ARE LOOKING FOR TRUMP’S ADVICE, @realDonaldTrump this morning: “‘Nancy Pelosi has no leverage over the Senate. Mitch McConnell did not nose his way into the impeachment process in the House, and she has no standing in the Senate.’ Brad Blakeman. Crazy Nancy should clean up her filthy dirty District & help the homeless there. A primary for N?”
— FOR THE RECORD: California does not have traditional primaries. It has a “jungle primary,” in which both parties participate, and the top two vote-getters face off in the general election. In 2018, PELOSI got 68.5% in a seven-candidate jungle primary field — the next highest vote-getter got 9.1%. She won the general election with 86.8%….
