House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is reportedly “counting down” until President Donald Trump is out of office.
The California Democrat apparently shared with her leadership team in a strategy meeting over the weekend that she plans to physically “pull him out” of the White House by his “little” hands and feet.
Politico revealed Pelosi’s comments in an article published on Monday focused on the coronavirus stimulus bill passed this week and the hours of bickering among top leaders of both parties that preceded the final version.
The piece noted that in all of the back and forth in the months that have passed since the last relief package, in the end, the president was not as engaged as before because of his ongoing involvement with election challenges. Trump was not as vocal on social media about the nearly 6,000-page bill that Congress eventually produced, choosing to tweet and retweet the latest on vote fraud and election irregularities that have kept him from conceding.
As Pelosi strategized with her leaders over the weekend, ahead of the final COVID-19 bill, she reportedly relished the thought of Trump’s departure.
“I’m counting down the hours ‘til he’s gone,” she said, according to Politico. “I plan to pull him out of there by his hair, his little hands and his feet.”
The $900 billion bill now heads to Trump’s desk, and there are some calling on the president to veto it due to the staggering amount of excessive and unnecessary spending included.

The bill includes $600 stimulus checks for most Americans, half of the amount handed out months ago after the beginning of the pandemic.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell slammed the Democrats for delays in getting out a finished product because they were bent on hurting Trump at the polls.
“It’s noteworthy.” McConnell told Fox News on Monday, “that at the end they finally gave us what we could have agreed to back in July. I think what held it up was they did not want to do anything before the presidential election. I think they felt that would disadvantage the president.”
Pelosi was slammed on Monday for saying the $600 checks being sent out are “significant,” while blaming the GOP of nixing larger checks.
You can’t make this up…

Pelosi is facing an unsure future as Speaker, with a string of House losses from last month’s election dogging her and the fact that Republicans managed to flip seats and close the gap between the parties in the House. A new Politico/Morning Consult poll shows that 56 percent of all voters think she should not be re-elected as speaker for a fourth, two-year run.
While most Democrats think she should retain her position, only 31 percent of all voters surveyed in the poll agree.
While Pelosi’s childish remarks about removing Trump from the White House were applauded by liberals on Twitter, many others slammed the Democrat.
Maybe instead of all the dramatics, thinking up punchy comebacks for trump, she could just get to work on getting us more than that slap in the face $600

Pretty fitting that the main quote to come out of a strategy meeting isn’t a strategy at all.

While she still manages to do absolutely zero for the American people…

Too bad Pelosi is as childish. She could have made some deals with Trump over the last 4 year if she could have controlled her own emotions. Instead she got nothing done. Fact.

So if Trump said this it would be bad.
But when she says it it courageous or something. #EnemyOfThePeople

That statement exemplifies the Democrats entire approach to Trump from the moment he was elected, obstruct, resist, insult & use the media to spread disinformation & lies. Pelosi will go down in history as the only Speaker of the House who tore up the State of the Union speech.
