Earlier this week news broke that a Democratic led, but bipartisan, House delegation had traveled to the Middle East unannounced. Their hope is to solve the Syria-Turkey-Kurd crisis that Donald Trump has created and then avoided. It didn’t take long for Trump to realize what was happening, or at least sort of realize what was happening.
When the news first broke that Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff and several other high ranking House members had shown up to the meeting in Jordan, Trump seemed confused about what was going on.
Trump tweeted “Pelosi is now leading a delegation of 9, including Corrupt Adam Schiff, to Jordan to check out Syria.” Then he demanded that Pelosi investigate President Obama’s actions in Syria, which doesn’t make a bit of sense. Trump doesn’t know how to go after Pelosi, because he can’t, so he continues to make bogus claims about President Obama.
Pelosi is the third-highest ranking elected official in the U.S. government. Trump is too inept, Pence is Trump’s lapdog and Pelosi knows someone has to actually lead in this situation, so she’s taken matters into her own hands. Middle Eastern Leaders know that Trump and his buddy Pence could be gone any minute, so they will take Pelosi a lot more seriously. Trump knows this too, or maybe he doesn’t. Regardless, he knows better than to attack her. If she can clean up his mess he will then try to say this entire thing was his idea. Things are only going to get more interesting as this situation progresses.
