Nancy Pelosi Defends Vacation During Shutdown: Trump May Not Know 'Hawaii is Part of the US'



Nancy Pelosi Defends Vacation During Shutdown: Trump May Not Know ‘Hawaii is Part of the United States’

by Colby Hall | Jan 3rd, 2019, 7:50 am

Representative Nancy Pelosi defended her holiday vacation in Hawaii during an ongoing government shutdown in a wide-ranging interview with TODAY’s Savannah Guthrie. Pelosi’s trip to Hawaii became something of a talking point on conservative media outlets as President Donald Trump opted to spend his holiday break in the White House instead of traveling to his Palm Beach home Mar-a-Lago.

Guthrie mentioned a “swipe” taken by President Trump about Pelosi’s family vacation, to which the presumptive Speaker replied “I observed the Christmas holiday for a few days and I cut in time half the time I would have had.”

Guthrie followed up “Is that a cheap shot?”

After claiming this to be something of a trivial distraction, Pelosi replied: “the fact is we all stood ready and told our members we’ll have 24 hours notice for all of us to be where we need to be.” She then added “the president may not know this, but Hawaii is part of the United States of America. Maybe he doesn’t realize that. I don’t know where the president observed the religious holiday of Christmas. Do you?”

1. He didn't opt to stay.

Orange face didn't opt to stay at the Whitehouse, he had to stay. Somebody told him it would look really bad if he left.

4. Savannah, you don't recognize that it was a cheap shot?

What does NBC pay you all that money for, if you can't figure that out? I knew it was a cheap shot immediately, particularly coming from a man who's spent more than a quarter of his time in office at his vacation properties on our dime and to line his own pockets. Have you forgotten all about that already?

7. "Cheap shot" implies that Democrats are weak and defenseless.

We're not.

6. I'm surprised Trump didn't tell everyone that it was an island

Surrounded by a lot of water.

He's very proud about knowing that about islands.

8. I'm sick of all the cheap shots that the repugs make about Hawaii!

Even that weasel Sessions referred to it as some island in the Pacific....

10. well, you have to understand that...

Rhode Island always confused them. It's not really an island, but that is in it's name (full name Rhode Island and the Providence Plantations).

So rhode island isn't an island, but Hawaii is. Life can be sooooo confusing.

11. She got a dig in about "religious holiday"

First, we know he didn’t go to church, and second, he’s trying to make Christians work on a sacred day. Talk about war on Christmas.

Pelosi’s daughter was right. Trump doesn’t know he’s bleeding.

14. For crying out loud, she wasn't the Speaker yet.

I shouldn't even know she took a vacation.

It was Ryan who should've been burning the midnight oil. Lets get back to the facts.

But, there's the so-called liberally biased news for you, catapulting the smears before the Democrats even assert their majority.
