Following a heated confrontation Tuesday morning at the White House between congressional Democrat leaders and President Donald Trump over an impending government shutdown, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi trash-talked the president behind his back.
Pelosi, a Democrat known for her disdain of sexism against women, started with what some describe as “a sexist trope” to attack the president’s manhood.
“It’s like a manhood thing for him. As if manhood could ever be associated with him. This wall thing,” she said while speaking with her colleagues afterward, taking issue with the president’s threat to shut down the government unless Democrats allow his proposed southern border wall to be funded.
Confirmed from an aide: After Pelosi left the WH, she returned to the Capitol and spoke to members at a meeting of the Steering and Policy Committee and said this about Trump: “It’s like a manhood thing for him. As if manhood could ever be associated with him. This wall thing.”

The president seeks funding for a wall along the southern border because, one, he promised during the campaign two years ago to build one, and two, he and his supporters strongly believe a wall would help reduce illegal immigration. The evidence suggests they’re correct.
Led by Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, Democrats have vowed to not fund the wall because they believe it’s unnecessary and that building one would be bigoted.
The current battle over wall funding specifically revolves around $5 million in funding for border security that the president has demanded to be included in a stalled funding bill.
Thus far Democrats have agreed to only include $1.6 million in funding. Unless the two reach an agreement by Dec. 21, the government will shut down, albeit only partially.
Neither Pelosi nor Schumer seemed willing to negotiate during the fiery confrontation Tuesday.
After the confrontation, the House minority leader told the media that prior to the meeting she’d shared a Bible story with Trump and asked him to pray for “understanding and wisdom”:
“I told him about King Solomon. When he was to become king of the Jews, he prayed to God. He said, ‘How can I ever follow King David? I need you to give me great understanding and wisdom, Lord.'”
“And after he prayed and prayed and prayed, God came to him and said, ‘Solomon, because you did not ask for longevity, great wealth, or vengeance against your enemies, I will give you more wisdom than anyone has ever had,’” she added. “The wisdom of Solomon.”
What this spiel even meant remains unknown, since some would argue that trying to protect a sovereign nation from a veritable invasion of illegal immigrants is in itself a wise decision.
“Whatever you think about it, how many times did he mention the word wall?” she continued. “That’s all he could say. How many times did he mention that? How obsessed he is with the wall.”
Again, it’s unclear why she equates “understanding and wisdom” with what appears to be her open-borders agenda. Polls show the majority of Americans oppose open borders.
“Is it worth shutting down the government and hurting the American people? The economy has uncertainty and people are losing their jobs and the market being in a mood, unpredictably, that again. Services being cut off from people who need them. It is not the right thing to do. It is the wrong thing to do and he shouldn’t do it no matter what he thinks of his campaign promise.”
It’s not known whether she realizes that the Bible speaks negatively of those who break their promises. It’s also unknown if Pelosi realizes that were the government shut down, the military would still be paid, and furloughed federal employees would be given back pay once the shutdown concluded.
What remains the most unclear is why the House minority leader waited until after her face-to-face meeting with the president to talk so much trash, as noted by social media.
@NancyPelosi Gosh weren’t you so brave to wait until after the face to face meeting with the President to say the wall has something to do w/his “manhood’. hey nancy “it’s called transparency” u know nothing abt that do you? lie, cheat, spin, steal

@PressSec Did u hear after meeting Nancy Pelosi personal attacks on the President, calling him a Skunk, and the manhood comments. She should be removed from office. She don’t do it to his face. She is a disgusting POS!

@NancyPelosi For the personal attacks on the President, Skunk, and the manhood comments, you should be removed from office. Ur a coward, cause you never say it to his face. U r for a women a disgusting POS!

Pelosi went into a private meeting with Democrats and, knowing that her remarks would leak, she called Trump a “skunk” who has “manhood” issues. If she’d made such remarks to Trump’s face, in front of the cameras, it would have played right into his hands

At least Pelosi could be honest in front off the Pres. Behind closed doors, she insults his manhood. If she is a real wonan, she would say it to his face.

It’s also unclear why nobody on the left is concerned about Pelosi’s sexism.
Pelosi mocks Trump using sexist trope over border wall. There fixed the headline. If the left is gonna act like they are so against sexism they need to condem her.

“It’s like a manhood thing for him. As if manhood could ever be associated with him. This wall thing.” This is the woman who wants to be Speaker! Now who is unprofessional and sexist? #RunningScared https://t.co/xbnEpPHafp

Is this not sexist? Hypocritical…very sad what shape our country is in. Pelosi is doing this for herself, not for Americans.

Funny how how all the SWJs are ok with @NancyPelosi dogging on President Trump’s manhood. Isn’t that sexist? If the roles were reversed , there would be a butthurt epidemic of the likes we never seen. Just another example of the lefts hypocrisy.
