On Friday, Pelosi announced that her plan to travel by commercial plane had been "leaked" by the White House.

 

Spokesman Drew Hammill said Pelosi and accompanying lawmakers were prepared to take a commercial flight but canceled after

the State Department warned that publicity

over the visit had "significantly increased the danger to the delegation and to the troops, security, and other officials supporting the trip."

 

The White House said it had leaked nothing that would cause a security risk. (!!!!)

I would hope, as commander in chief, he has finally displayed the extreme offense of his complete and fully exercised deriliction of duty that would now cause him to be - PUT AWAY!

Trump pulled the plug on Pelosi's military flight to visit the troops in Afghanistan (hey, how many times has Trump gone?) so she and her team bought commercial tickets.  Now, you may think the Speaker of the House going to a war zone on a commercial airline would be a big security risk for the Speaker and you would be right.  Know what makes it a bigger risk? When the President leaks the information. But hey. He works for Russia, not us, right?  

 

 

“The fact that they would leak that we were flying commercial is a danger not only to us but to other people flying commercially,” Pelosi told reporters Friday. “It’s very irresponsible on the part of the president.”


Nancy is being polite about calling it irresponsible.  It was the epitome of vindictiveness and pettiness.  She called his bluff and chose the "perogative of flying commercial" and he went in for the final kill. 

 

But, of course, it has been leaked in the past that he is afraid of going to a war zone himself; he did appear nervous on the Iraq visit talking about the black-out and security.  Can't have some woman showing him up and especially reassuring allies in Brussels.
