Skip to comments.Pelosi steps up as Trump abdicates responsibilities

Last weeks viral photograph of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi pointing her finger at President Trump and reading him the riot act reflected a larger reality: If Trump wont responsibly lead the nation, Pelosi will.
The president has pretty much ceased being president. Trump never really seemed to enjoy the job, except for ceremonial tasks like handing out medals. Id be surprised if he could name every member of his Cabinet, and Id be shocked if he had the foggiest idea of what, say, Secretary Elaine Chao has been up to over at the Department of Transportation. Does anyone imagine that Trump even knows where DOT is?
Recently, however, Trumps lack of focus has gotten so bad that it has become dangerous to human life, as the Kurds of northeast Syria can attest. Trump agreed not to stand in the way of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogans invasion plans in order to get the unpleasant Erdogan off the phone, according to an NBC News report. Erdogan threw Trumps Dont be a fool! letter in the trash and now is demanding the right for Turkey to obtain nuclear weapons.
Enter Pelosi, who is not the president, obviously, but increasingly is acting almost like a prime minister.
Over the weekend, she led a congressional delegation on an unannounced trip to reassure American allies in Jordan and Afghanistan. Given that Pelosi greenlighted the House investigation that likely will end in Trumps impeachment and, thus, that Trump sees her as his nemesis the president likely considered Pelosis trip a slap in the face.

I am wondering if this "theatre" is meant to portray Pelosi as a threat because Trump keeps laughing off her fake impeachment posse. Seems she needs to be seen as "oooh scary" so that any of her actions that turn up in the ongoing investigations (Barr, Durham etc.) can be protected; should she be exposed like Biden, the Deep State will point to this supposed fake "threat" she represents and claim she's being singled out by President Trump. Note the assertion that the President would likely feel "slapped in the face" by Pelosi's ridiculous field trip?
The rest of the bizarre WAPO article is worth reading for it's altered reality. No one watching President Trump's RESULTS oriented presidency is going to believe he's drifting aimlessly, no one takes him seriously, "someone had to step in" and take care of things on his behalf.
THIS is the BEST strategy they've GOT?
And today there's this little slice of reality adjustment:
Jordan's King Abdullah Rejects Pelosi and Schiff By Endorsing Trump Withdrawal From Syria - https://t.co/NYYKp0Hun7
Who ever wrote this needs to cut back a little on the crack
Eugene Robinson - stop. Flaming leftist.
And he sounds like he’s got a chronically stuffy nose. A head full of snot is about right for the loon Robinson.
Eugene should avoid the psychedelic drugs.
Beats 0bama’s constant posturing before the cameras, bowing to other nation’s leaders, etc.
As Jordan Peterson would say, first she needs to clean up her own room. i.e. lead the house first, then worry about other people’s jobs.
Is this something from Saturday Night Live? Funny stuff.
I remember that Ronald Reagan was senile and napped all day while others did all the work...,
Dis guy hits da crack pipe on the hour. No grasp of reality.
Thank you, King of Jordan.
I expected that a king from the middle east would not hold a woman like Pelosi in very high regard.
I’m sure Eugene Robinson would have called you a lunatic 15 years ago if you told him that he was going to be a war-mongering propagandist by the time 2019 rolled around.
In what universe does the writer of this garbage live. It certainly isn't this one. I guess he's in the Democrat universe where reality doesn't exist and fantasy is what all of the denizens believe in.
If I was looking for people to buy a burger franchise, I wouldn’t allow Pelosi to buy in.
IT’s all I can do turn all of this off. Trump is do a yeoman’s job to turn this country around, when everyone around him was complacent and happy with the way we were going ie soon to become a Chinese Colony.
How he is capable of getting up in the morning, and dealing with these bag of a holes, including people like Romney is just amazing.
Rush today is right. He’s got only a handful of elected people with him.
Hard core ObamaBot.
The ramblings of a Gay black man in desperate need of penicillin.
Looks to me like the third rate politician Pelosi is running away and hiding behind her fake impeachment hearings.
I don’t know if I am just getting numb to all the BS or what. But I found this article to be rather entertaining.
Utter filth and vomit material. Why print this $h!t.
Huh? Gene, your so-called principles have been stomped into useless oblivion by a president cutting red tape and using good old fashion common sense ie if it works do more of it if it doesn't then stop.
He's probably done at least 3 times the amount of work that Obama did in 8 years in office thanks to his sleep schedule and work ethic.
