I think I need to stop doubting Speaker Pelosi. Clearly she knows her politics far, far, far better than I do. Just saw on CNN and it’s now in Reuters that she is asking Donald’s family or staff to stage an intervention for him “for the good of the country.”
U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said on Thursday that President Donald Trump threw a temper tantrum at a meeting with Democratic congressional leaders a day earlier and that she wished his family or staff would conduct “an intervention” with Trump for the good of the country.
“Again, I pray for the president of the United States. I wish that his family, or his administration, or his staff would have an intervention for the good of the country,” Pelosi told reporters.
This is a pretty remarkable chess move on her part as she continues her slow-walking maneuvers around the inevitable impeachment of Trump. While it’s fair to say that he does indeed need many years of intense psychotherapy, and perhaps it’s also fair to say that she could help with that intervention herself by starting the impeachment hearings, I think this is still a brilliant maneuver on her part. Why?
Because it continues to absolutely mess with his head.
Pelosi has completely gotten to him. She is in his head and pushing all of his buttons. And while I would love nothing better than the impeachment hearings to start a month ago, I really gotta hand it to Pelosi for just screwing with Donald so impeccably well. Well played, Speaker Pelosi. Well played.
