Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer announced at a news conference outside the White House on Wednesday that they had just walked out of a meeting with President Trump on Syria policy, after he apparently called Pelosi either a “third-rate politician” or “third-grade politician” and angrily suggested the Democrats probably appreciated communist Islamic State terrorists in the Middle East.
“What we witnessed on the part of the president was a meltdown, sad to say,” Pelosi, D-Calif., remarked.
……A senior Democratic aide told Fox News that Trump began the meeting, which was ostensibly called by the White House, by remarking that “someone wanted this meeting so I agreed to it.” Trump also reportedly told Pelosi, “I hate ISIS more than you do,” prompting Pelosi to respond, “You don’t know that.”
Trump then remarked, according to the senior source: “President Obama drew a red line in the sand [in Syria]. In my opinion, you are a third-grade politician.” (Schumer, D-N.Y., told reporters he heard Trump use the term “third-rate politician.”)
As the Democrats walked out, Trump reportedly remarked, “I’ll see you at the polls.”
During the post-meeting presser, Pelosi said: “Sometimes I wish you were a politician Mr. President, then you would know the art of the possible”.
That quote fits the clueless bureaucracy of the swamp. The irony of that statement goes right over her pointy head and illustrates why Americans are fed up with them.
The Dems have their panties in a wad over the pullout of American troops from Syria and the Turkish attacks against the Kurds but said nothing when Obama yanked the troops out of Iraq, dismissing ISIS as a ‘JV Team‘ while they butchered their way through Iraq and Syria. They also kept their mouths shut when Yazidi refugees who fled to Mt. Sinjar to escape ISIS were dying from disease and starvation, while Obama took his sweet time on the golf course. When the Yazidi got back to northern Iraq, they were promptly attacked and slaughtered by ISIS.
Likewise, no concern about Christians being subjected to genocide across the Middle East.
As for Turkey, Erdogan is a muzzie shitbag and dictator who seized churches and made them ‘property of the state’, and arrests lawyers, and designates journalists and teachers as “terrorists”. He also sues people who point out that he’s a dictator.
Fuck Turkey. They’re no friends of ours.
The only ally we have in the Middle East is Israel. The rest of the region is a cesspool of filthy, violent Islamofascist nation-states. None of them are worth a shit and should have been leveled on 12 September 2001.
