The thing about politics in the old days is while the same political parties used to disagree with each other on just about everything that you can think of they still had a grudging respect for one another.
Sure you had the same battles over every issue that you can think of but they at the very least tried to get along with each other. Now the main problem is that politicians want nothing more than to just job insults at each other.
It’s almost like a bullying scene in a movie set in a high school played out on a national stage over and over. Despite what a liberal politician might think of President Trump, there are certain things that they just should not say in public even if they actually feel that way because any time something happens at the White House it is international news.
Any time other world leaders hear our elected representatives express such blatant disregard for respecting the office of President it makes us weaker in the eyes of the world and we do not need that.
Then again, maybe that’s exactly what Pelosi wants.
From Fox News:
House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi reportedly questioned President Trump’s “manhood” in a series of pointed closed-door comments with fellow Democrats on Tuesday, following her on-camera sparring with the president over border wall funding.
According to the Associated Press, Pelosi, D-Calif., spoke of Trump’s insistence that a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border will be funded and said, “It’s like a manhood thing for him. As if manhood could ever be associated with him. This wall thing.”
She reportedly continued, “It goes to show you: You get into a tinkle contest with a skunk, you get tinkle all over you.”
Pelosi, according to the AP, made the comments to Democratic lawmakers at the Capitol following her meeting with Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., and the president.
During that meeting, Trump threatened again to shut down part of the government next week if Democrats did not agree to fund his long-promised wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.
Congress last week temporarily averted a partial shutdown amid the funeral services for the late President George H.W. Bush, pushing the new deadline to Dec. 21.
Trump has said he wants $5 billion for the project, while Democrats are offering $1.3 billion for border security.
