After Kanye West`s surreal Oval Office meeting with Donald Trump, ostensibly to talk about prison reform, went off the rails with the rapper dropping F-bombs like confetti, I thought surely there will never be a more surreal meeting in that lofty office where so much history has been made.
Suffice to say I was wrong, boy was I wrong.
Trump invited cameras to his Oval Office meeting with Chuck and Nancy, the narcissist thought the photo-op of him berating the Democratic Congressional leaders over their refusal to allocate funds for his wall would play well with his base.
Things didn`t go according to plan. It was like taking candy from a baby, Chuck and Nancy tricked Trump into owning his expected government shutdown.
After an animated Trump, wildly waving his tiny hands, said that Pelosi was “in a situation where it`s not easy for her to talk right now” because of the speakership race, Boss Lady Pelosi nipped that mansplaining in the bud, lecturing him:
Mr. President, please don`t characterize the strength that I bring to this meeting as the leader of the House Democrats, who just won a big victory.
There wasn`t a court jester present at the boisterous meeting, but there was a mute Elf on the Shelf. Mike Pence didn`t utter a word, maybe he thought that Jesus blessed him with the gift of invisibility, and nobody would even know he was there.
The only thing Trump accomplished is that for half a news cycle the Chuck and Nancy emasculation of the stable genius knocked the Mueller investigation as the lead story on the cable news outlets.
