Nancy Pelosi treating Trump like an ill-behaved child is actually working



Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Donald Trump

Pundits have spent the better part of the week comparing President Donald Trump to an ill-behaved grandchild of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

The president frequently searches for ways to create a villain or an adversary he can fight with because it’s the only way he can appear tough or he thinks it’s the only way to garner results. Pelosi, however, doesn’t play that way. Axios reported Sunday that her plan might actually be working.

“Pelosi’s allies said her taunting of Trump now is intentional, designed to get under his skin and elicit an angry reaction,” the Washington Post reported.

“I wish that his family or his administration or his staff would have an intervention for the good of the country,” Pelosi said during her weekly press conference. “There’s no question; the White House is just crying out for impeachment. That’s why he flipped yesterday.”

She said that the intervention is up to his team but that his behavior is not indicative of the “dignity of the office of the president of the United States.”

After walking out of an infrastructure meeting this week, Trump held a press conference where he claimed he couldn’t work with Democrats anymore. It took members by surprise because the meeting with Trump lasted about three minutes, and no one said a word other than Trump.


If Trump has decided he’s on strike or will no longer do his job, Pelosi can easily go at it alone, passing scores of legislation to prove Congress is doing the work of the people. But if Trump refuses to sign the legislation, negotiate the legislation or Senate Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) refuses to allow the Senate to vote on it, it puts the onus on the GOP for the strike.

“She’s succeeded in making three things very clear: 1) She’s interested in getting things done, and he walked away again; 2) She’s the only adult in Washington and is leading Dems with precision; 3) He’s a toddler who pays a price for attacking her because he resorts to such publicly infantile lows to attack her,” a senior Democratic aide told Axios.

Trump allies said that they couldn’t believe the president keeps falling for her traps.

“I do this with my dog,” the person said.

Trump flips out and threatens ‘obliteration’ after Iran calls him retarded



President Donald Trump on Tuesday angrily hit back at Iran after the nation accused him of being "retarded."

Writing on Twitter, the president accused Iran of making a "very ignorant and insulting statement" against him, which he said "only shows that they do not understand reality."

The president then threatened the nation with "obliteration" if it didn't wise up.

"Any attack by Iran on anything American will be met with great and overwhelming force," he wrote. "In some areas, overwhelming will mean obliteration. No more John Kerry & Obama!"

....Iran’s very ignorant and insulting statement, put out today, only shows that they do not understand reality. Any attack by Iran on anything American will be met with great and overwhelming force. In some areas, overwhelming will mean obliteration. No more John Kerry & Obama!

Condo owner sends recording of monkey noises to prospective renter — and repeatedly calls her the N-word



Giulia Ozyesilpinar, the owner and operator of the Ocean Five Condo Hotel in Miami Beach, went on a racist tirade this week against a prospective renter because she didn't promptly respond to her WhatsApp messages.

The Miami New Times reports that London resident Monifah Brown had booked a condo at Ocean Five with some friends who were planning to go with her to a summer vacation in Miami.

However, after booking the condo, Ozyesilpinar sent her messages saying that she was having problems processing her credit cards. After Brown didn't initially respond to those messages, Ozyesilpinar sent her a racist message telling her that she was hurting the reputations of other black people.

‘Incoherent’ Trump blistered by ex-National Security Council member for acting as Putin’s unwitting stooge



In a ferocious column for Politico, a former member of the National Security Council who served under both President George H.W. Bush and Bill Clinton called out Donald Trump for what he called the president's "incomprehensible" policies when it comes to Russia.

According to Andrew S. Weiss, vice president for studies at the Carnegie Endowment, the American president is likely the best friend Russian President Vladimir Putin could wish for.

Pointing out that Trump's meeting with Putin in Osaka is only days away, Weiss, who worked on Russian affairs in the State Department, said the get-together is happening just as three government officials with the most experience dealing with Russia -- Chairman of the Joint Chiefs General Joseph Dunford, the NSC’s in-house Russia expert Fiona Hill, and U.S. Ambassador to Russia Jon Huntsman -- are leaving the administration.

Trump endorses killing journalists, like Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi. Online ad networks are now targeting sites that cover acts of violence against dissidents, LGBTQ people and people of color.
