The “resistance” is alive and well in the halls of power today as two petulant children of the system stormed out of a meeting with President Trump.
A budget meeting with President Trump turned into an egregious opportunity for political grandstanding today as Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer stormed away from the White House, stomping their feet like a child who has been told no to eating more candy. The two democratic figures, who have long held a great disdain for our President, were sure to get directly in front of the cameras immediately after they claim the meeting went awry, simply to give CNN and other mainstream media propaganda outlets a few soundbites for their primetime programming.
“The White House on Tuesday shot back at the top congressional Democrats — Sen. Chuck Schumer and Rep. Nancy Pelosi — for pulling out of a White House meeting with President Trump, saying the president wants them to ‘put aside their pettiness’ and ‘get to work.’
“Schumer, the Senate minority leader, and Pelosi, the House minority leader, cancelled their meeting with Trump and top congressional Republicans after the president hinted that any attempt to reach a bipartisan deal to avoid a government shutdown would be thwarted by Democrats’ desire to include immigration reform and tax increases.
“’It’s disappointing that Senator Schumer and Leader Pelosi are refusing to come to the table and discuss urgent issues,’ said White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders. ‘The president’s invitation to the Democrat leaders still stands and he encourages them to put aside their pettiness, stop the political grandstanding, show up and get to work. These issues are too important.’
“The White House response followed a joint statement from Schumer and Pelosi after Trump’s tweet, in which they said they’d rather negotiate alone with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and House Speaker Paul Ryan.”
This is indicative of the sore loser sickness that has festered on the left over the course of the President’s first term so far. The democrats and the liberal ilk are simply choosing to oppose the President in every possible avenue to show loyalty to their globalist overlords.
Now, with a White House less apt to capitulate to their petty and self-serving demands, the left can no longer feign tolerance when not getting their way. This bratty stunt by Pelosi and Schumer all but guarantees that.
