BREAKING: Nancy Pelosi just stood up to Trump, telling him that she will not give him his stupid wall.

Nancy Pelosi's spine just became the envy of all Republicans, after witnessing two years of Paul Ryan giving his best jellyfish impression.

53. Mexico was supposed to pay for the wall.

Madame Speaker-to-be reminded him of that, I'm sure.

2. Tim Ryan and Seth Moulton can suck it.

Nancy Pelosi is as tough and effective as they come, and every day that she's Speaker should be cherished, because there aren't many like her.

9. Nancy has been demonized for years by the Republican hate machine

Time that every Dem stood behind her and hailed her for her grit, values and dedication to the causes we all believe in. Stop letting the fucking Republicans define who Democrats are.

And to all those who want a new, younger Speaker, let me say this: Nancy is a powerhouse politician who knows how to fight, how to lead and where all the bodies are buried. At the end of her term, two years from now, she will hand over the leadership baton. But during these coming two years, the best thing that the young newcomers can do is to learn from her. It will make them more effective against the real "evil" America is facing: -- The Republican Party.

Watch her, work with her and gleam some of her knowledge. Your turn will come so learn all you can from her. She is awesome. You need to admire her if for no other reason that rethugs are afraid of her.

13. Getting rid of Mueller is becoming pointless

Pelosi is our new leader and Trump's goose is cooked. They keep talking
about 2020 and Trump's opponent. Trump is not going to be around in
2020 and Nancy is going to be the incumbent.

15. I read this earlier and was very happy to see Pelosi . . .

call Trump's bluff. If he and the Republicans went to shut down the Government they can certainly do that. And then, be held accountable for the lost revenue and ensuing chaos/anger a shutdown will entail. Right before Christmas.

This blackmail routine has to stop. Using the Dreamers and a resolution on DACA as the bait is despicable. We're talking thousands of young lives and futures vs the Trumpski's bloated ego and empty promises.

The Republicans want to play hardball. Fine. We have Nancy Pelosi in our court. I like the odds!

She says she won't give it to him using the Dreamers as part of the deal. She may have something else in mind.

That Trump is begging for money for the stupid wall he assured everyone that Mexico would pay for. Mexico is smart enough not to pay for it and we need to be smart enough too.

30. It didn't matter, they needed a 2/3 majority in the Senate to make it happen, and they didn't have

the votes then, and they still don't now, plus in addition, we control the House

In other words they needed Democratic votes in the Senate for the wall, then and now, and they don't have them

The house is a done deal.

Despite their bluster the blue wave rocked them. The senate may well pass it and put the onus on trump.

45. Like this a lot. I would have one and only one rule for giving them the wall.

A process that provides immediate amnesty and a fast track pathway to citizenship the second the legislation is signed. Then let the Trump followers and rank and file Republicans realize that we can tie their wall up in court for a decade while they build a small section here and a small section there. In that decade we will the repeal the wall aspect of the legislation like they did the ACA.
