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.”

Moderate Dem lawmaker tells CNN why Trump’s ‘appalling behavior’ changed his mind on impeachment
Rep. Jim Himes (D-CT), a moderate Democrat and a member of the centrist New Democrat Coalition, went on CNN on Tuesday to explain why he has changed his mind and now supports starting an impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump.
In an interview with CNN's John Berman, Himes said that Trump has regularly shown that he doesn't care about obeying the law, as evidenced by his decision to completely shrug off his own Office of Special Counsel's finding that adviser Kellyanne Conway has repeatedly violated the Hatch Act.
"Kellyanne Conway had clearly broken the law and she should be removed from office," Himes said. "And the president said, 'Ah heck, that doesn't matter.'"
9/11 first responder busts Trump for lying about helping them: ‘There’s no meeting’
Appearing in CNN's New Day, two New York City first responders trashed Congress for its foot-dragging over providing funding to help those afflicted by illnesses directly related from the 9/11 attack.
Speaking with hosts John Berman and Alisyn Camerota, 9/11 first responder John Feal first took shots at Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) before getting around to recent comments made by President Donald Trump where he claimed he was having a meeting with representatives of the firefighters and police this week.
In an interview with NBC's Chuck Todd, the president noted the work being done by former "Daily Show" host Jon Stewart to help get legislation pushed through, and said that he is taking a personal interest in the 9/11 victims' plight.
‘I don’t have to do it, legally’: Trump says he can invade Iran without Congress’ permission
On Monday, CNN reported that in a new interview, President Donald Trump said that he can invade Iran without congressional approval — and that although he would "like the idea" of keeping Congress in the loop, he doesn't "legally" have to do so.
"I like the idea of keeping Congress abreast, but I wouldn't have to do that," said Trump. In response to the fact that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has said he must obtain congressional approval first, Trump said, "I disagree. I think most people seem to disagree."
"I do like keeping them — they are intelligent people," added Trump. "They will come up with some thoughts. I actually learned a couple of things the other day when we had our meeting with Congress which I think were helpful to me. I do like keeping them abreast, but I don't have to do it, legally."
