This is how you trump Trump

On Wednesday, Donald Trump called the top Democrats to the White House, supposedly to talk about Syria and Turkey. But just before the meeting, the House voted to rebuke Donald Trump about his decision to withdraw all US troops from Syria and allow Turkey to invade. In a surprising display of anger against the leader of their party, 129 House Republicans voted against Trump (out of 197 GOP representatives total), along with all of the Democrats. Making it a stunning rebuke.

Of course, when Trump gets attacked, he always fires back. But this time he pretty much had a meltdown, raining insults not only at the Democrats (for example, calling Nancy Pelosi a “a third-rate politician” to her face), but also railing against his own former Secretary of Defense James Mattis, who said on TV that Trump’s actions in Syria opened the door for ISIS to return, and that “It’s absolutely a given that they will come back.” In response, Trump interrupted and said that Mattis was “the world’s most overrated general.”

Trump also claimed that his move did not put any US soldiers “in harm’s way”. However, a senior Department of Defense official later said that Trump’s claim was not true.

The Democrats ended up walking out of the meeting, but Trump wasn’t done. He took to Twitter and posted a photo from the meeting attacking Nancy Pelosi, saying “Nervous Nancy’s unhinged meltdown!”.

Here’s when magic happened. Instead of engaging Trump, Pelosi took the photo and made it her Twitter cover shot. One of her staff tweeted “Thanks for the new cover photo @realDonaldTrump!” Here’s the photo on her Twitter profile:

I have to say that I am very impressed by Pelosi’s response.

    I’m quite curious, Glasshouses, as to which narratives you’re speaking of. It’ll help me figure out if I’m insane or not. Thx.

    Mattis’s response to Trump’s calling Mattis “the world’s most overrated general” was priceless. Mattis said:

    I’m not just an overrated general. I’m the greatest, the world’s most overrated. I’m honored to be considered that by Donald Trump because he also called Meryl Streep an overrated actress. So I guess I’m the Meryl Streep of generals, and frankly that sounds pretty good to me And you do have to admit that between me and Meryl, at least we’ve had some victories.

    I called what Trump did to the Kurds treason, my best and most conservative friend called it murder.
    I took the time to watch, off and on, Trump’s speech in Dallas. It was horrific. Lefties are aborting babies by cutting then out of the womb 9 months into the pregnancy (In Iowa we call that a Cesarean birth). In fact everyone that doesn’t support Trump is trying to enslave the American people. Goebbels would be proud.

    Nancy has had to deal with toddlers before. Those past experiences are serving her well now.
