Nancy Pelosi comes out swinging — and mocks Trump in every direction

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi is not taking President Trump's mishandling of the U.S. government lying down. The 78-year-old pint-sized powerhouse mocked Trump's version of his ill-slated wall along the U.S. southern border as a “beaded curtain.”


"First of all, the fact ... that he says, ‘We're going to build a wall with cement, and Mexico's going to pay for it,’ while he's already backed off of the cement – now he's down to, I think, a beaded curtain or something, I'm not sure where he is," Pelosi told USA Today.

The comment came following Trump's tweet that "the Democrats, are saying loud and clear that they do not want to build a Concrete Wall – but we are not building a Concrete Wall, we are building artistically designed steel slats, so that you can easily see through it."

Trump referred to the structure as a "beautiful" border wall.

Pelosi is having none of it. She's taking aim in every direction at the dictatorship in waiting.
