The manspreading president sat in his yellow chair in front of the fireplace, I`m surprised he`s managed thus far to restrain himself from replacing it with a golden throne.
When Trump is in the Oval Office he expects all the supplicants, whether they`re heads of states or American politicians, to treat him with deference and respect.
Trump summoned the past and future Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and the Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer to discuss the budget and immigration, specifically his damn wall.
Trump expected the event that was televised live to showcase his determination to build the wall, and his superiority over his Democratic rivals. He probably imagined his evangelical base assembled in circle jerks in churches and living rooms across the nation praising Jesus over his performance.
But things didn`t go according to plan. Nancy and Chuck didn`t get the memo that they`re supposed to act like sycophants when granted an audience before the stable genius.
Trump was gesticulating wildly with his tiny hands, and practically shouting. But Chuck wasn`t intimidated and he matched Trump`s decibel level, and he waved his normal-sized hands in the air, making the president`s diminutive hands look even smaller in comparison.
And then the new sheriff in town, Nancy Pelosi, without raising her voice or gesticulating wildly put the mansplaining Trump in his place. She demonstrated that you don`t need to engage in histrionics to get the better of Trump, all that`s required is a spine and facts.
Pelosi gave us a glorious taste of how the House, with her in charge, will hold Trump accountable for the duration of his term, whether it`s a few months or two more wretched years.
