House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) must have been particularly flustered after her Oval Office meeting with President Donald Trump yesterday. When she addressed the press pool outside the White House directly afterward, she accidentally uttered one of the most hated words by politically correct liberals. She was quick to correct herself, but the damage had already been done.
A tense discussion on government funding and border security unfolded on Tuesday, as President Donald Trump met with Democratic leaders Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer in the hopes of coming to an agreement that would avoid a government shutdown while also providing $5 billion in funding for the wall.
Demanding that Democrats accept his call for $5 billion in funding for a wall along the border with Mexico, President Donald Trump sparred with top Democrats in Congress in an extraordinary scene played out before television cameras in the Oval Office on Tuesday, as the President said he would be happy to see a partial government funding lapse later this month unless gets his way on money for to build a wall along the border with Mexico.

“I am proud to shut down the government for border security, Chuck,” President Donald Trump said in what quickly escalated into a bitter back and forth between the president, Sen. Chuck Schumer, and Rep. Nancy Pelosi.
Tensions only rose from there, as Trump made mention of Pelosi’s “difficulty speaking” at the present time. “I also know that, you know, Nancy’s in a situation where it’s not easy for her to talk right now and I understand that,” Trump said.
However, it was readily apparent that she was still quite flustered when she emerged from the Oval Office meeting to address reporters outside of the White House. After meeting with Trump, an obviously nervous Pelosi described the potential shutdown as a “Christmas present … a holiday present … to the American people.”
“Should, unfortunately, the president choose to shut down the government, so that we have a Trump shut down as a Christmas present, a holiday present, to the American people,” Pelosi said. “I told the president that the new House of Representatives when it convenes will pass what Mr. Schumer suggested here.”
Of course, Pelosi quickly caught herself after uttering the politically incorrect word and corrected it to “holiday,” because God forbid somebody has the gall to recognize the Christmas season as a sacred time of Christian remembrance in honor of the birth of Jesus Christ.
But Pelosi wasn’t always as keen on pandering to the politically correct left. In 2009, she described Obamacare, the same legislation which she said she wouldn’t read until after it was passed, as a “Christmas present to the American people.”
And just last year, she took to Twitter to say, “Merry Christmas! This time of year always allows us a truly special time to reflect on the miraculous blessings of family, community and Country. I wish you all the very best during this Holiday Season.”
It seems that Nancy Pelosi and her cronies on the left will do whatever is politically expedient at any given point in time, whether it be wishing their constituents a “Happy Holidays” instead of a “Merry Christmas,” or refusing to fund the border wall which would nip ninety-nine percent of our immigration issues in the bud. These people are insufferable.
