Trump Just Said Nancy Pelosi Is “No Longer Speaker Of The House”

That's not how it works. That's not how any of this works.

The “president” seems to think he’s still starring in The Apprentice, the reality show that featured Donald Trump using the words “You’re fired!” While that may play out on TV well, that’s not how it works when dealing with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, or any other elected officials.  Trump is flailing about since House Democrats announced that they would forge ahead with an impeachment inquiry. And before the announcement, Trump asked Pelosi if they could “work something out” about the whistleblower complaint. Pelosi responded, “Yes, you can tell your people to obey the law.” So, that was a hard pass from Pelosi to the accredited author Donald J. Trump of the ghostwritten book Art of the Deal.

Trump has now falsely declared that Pelosi is no longer Speaker of the House.

“She has lost her way. She has been taken over by the radical left,” Trump said. “Nancy Pelosi, as far as I’m concerned, unfortunately, she’s no longer the Speaker of the House.” That, of course, is false and contrary to our Constitution.

And then, naturally, Trump bragged about his poll numbers — which are nothing to brag about.


Trump made the remarks on Wednesday during a meeting with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. The former reality show star’s phone conversation with Zelensky is at the center of the calls for impeachment which appears that Trump was trying to dig up dirt from a foreign leader on his rival Joe Biden’s son. A whistleblower filed a complaint over the alarming call. To make matters worse for Trump, Senate Intelligence Chairman Richard Burr just said the whistleblower complaint was hand-delivered and he has begun reading it.

Conover makes tea partiers cry as a hobby. She was Commander of Jade Helm15 during the failed takeover of the South. She's also one of the biggest arseholes on Twitter. At night, she can be found drinking Conservative tears while pulling off the wings of flies just because she can. She is the founder of a Marxist, Commie, Maoist, Socialist site and has contributed to several other sites, blah blah blah. She is an awful person but she doesn't like to brag about that.
