President Donald Trump is having a tough time with Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA). During an interview with Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY), the senior New York Senator explained that Trump stormed into their meeting and directed his anger to Pelosi before he stomped off. No one spoke other than him in the three-minute meeting, but whatever happened leading up to the meeting enraged the president.
Trump biographer Michael d’Antonio and CNN’s Don Lemon chuckled about the president’s emotional instability.
“Got to get ready for the — he might tweet about you tonight,” Lemon joked.
“I’m ready for him,” d’Antonio said. “I’m challenged because I try to use facts. He’s not challenged because he’s fact-free.”
Pelosi released a statement in wake of the meeting characterizing the 3-minute shout-fest as a “temper tantrum.” It promoted the president to then have a temper tantrum about it.
“And Pelosi had a new statement that said the president had a temper tantrum for us all to see. Why does he get so earthed by Nancy Pelosi?” Lemon asked.
“She’s Mommy and she’s not treating him well,” the biographer said. “She’s a powerful woman, a bit older than him, got authority. I don’t think he likes it when women aren’t taking care of him. Absolutely she lives in his head and what’s weird is she doesn’t have to do much, does she? She just has to say this is a cover-up. And what’s amazing is his whole life has been a cover-up. There’s not been a thing that he’s claimed. He walked out into the Rose Garden and covered-up the real reason why this meeting blew up. He was covering up as he’s saying Donald Trump doesn’t do cover-ups.”

Fox News lying to defend Trump makes it a threat to US national security: CNN contributor
Fox News a threat to American democracy and national security, a CNN contributor explained on Saturday.
Garrett Graff was interviewed by CNN's Ana Cabrera about a new piece he wrote for Wired titled, "Fox News Is Now a Threat to National Security."
"Monday’s split-screen drama, as the House Judiciary Committee weighed impeachment charges against President Trump and as the Justice Department’s inspector general released a 476-page report on the FBI’s handling of its 2016 investigation into Trump’s campaign, made one truth of the modern world inescapable: The lies and obfuscations forwarded ad infinitum on Fox News pose a dangerous threat to the national security of the United States," he wrote.
Lindsey Graham admits nothing will change his mind on Trump impeachment: ‘I’m not trying to pretend to be a fair juror’
In an interview with CNN International's Becky Anderson at the Doha Forum in Qatar, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) admitted he has no plans to look at the evidence compiled against Donald Trump from the House impeachment inquiry when it is referred to the Senate.
The chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee explained that he wants the trial to be quick and that expects nothing to come of it, with the GOP solidly behind fighting impeachment of the president.
During the interview Graham stated, "This thing will come to the Senate, and it will die quickly, and I will do everything I can to make it die quickly."
GOP strategist walloped for urging Dem lawmakers to leave Trump alone and worry about being re-elected instead
On CNN Saturday, Democratic strategist Maria Cardona and Republican strategist Doug Heye clashed after the latter suggested Democrats should value their re-election over holding President Donald Trump accountable for wrongdoing.
"We have to remember, this is not a trial as we think of trials in courtroom," said Heye. "This is a political process. It is designed to be a political process, and that's why this whole process is played out the way that it has so far. I would say to Maria, the Republicans aren't spending money to shore up Republicans per se. They're spending money to go after vulnerable Democrats who are going home and then coming back and telling Nancy Pelosi and Democratic leadership, I'm getting killed back home."
