I love Nancy Pelosi. She not only has a unique ability to get under Trump’s skin, she does a great smackdown with his pompous, uber-loyal, severely underqualified staff. After Trump stormed out of the infrastructure meeting, KellyAnne Conway — former Republican pollster with no particular expertise in anything other than soothing Trump and bolstering his ego — asked Speaker Pelosi if she had any response to Trump’s “points”. Pelosi responded that she’d issue her remarks directly to Trump, not to one of his underlings.
Love it. Republicans seem to need to treat Trump’s coterie of meagerly qualified friends and family as serious players, aka Jared Kushner, Princeling of Everything. Pelosi feels no such need.
