What traps has Pelosi set for Trump?

Pelosi has proved remarkably adept at getting Trump to lean into her left hooks.  She got him to accept responsibility ( a feat in itself) for the government shutdowns he caused.  She has caused him to abandon his attempts to portray himself as an "infrastructure guy" in favor of building a wall most Americans see as political theater. The excerpt below mentions her tearing up the text of Trump's speech causing him to publicly explode. 

 

Now, Trump has excluded himself from any effective response to the current pandemic crisis while attempting to portray his administration as effective simply with the window dressing of multiple committees of sycophants.  This is the battlefield Pelosi owns and Trump can be expected to watch her further expose his incompetence from afar. 

 

Pelosi did become one of Trump’s most unflinching adversaries, in part because she grasped early on that invitations to his White House are often just call sheets for unscripted television; her finger-jabbing readiness to get in Trump’s face has made her a recurring meme of the Democratic resistance. She offered her most vivid performance yet on February 4th, during the President’s third State of the Union address. As Trump spoke, Pelosi, wearing suffragist white, sat behind him in the high-backed chair reserved for the Speaker of the House of Representatives, and conspicuously shuffled and reshuffled a printed copy of the President’s speech. After he finished, she tore the text in half. Twitter blew up, as the Speaker had clearly intended; she explained that she had abandoned decorum because Trump’s speech “was a manifesto of mistruths.”

Any day, any minute it could get real ugly for don.

The stumbling bumbling.  It's embarrassing.  It's DEADLY!  Facts.

 

This is the battlefield Pelosi owns and Trump can be expected to watch her further expose his incompetence from afar. 

".... fourth day as President.... “You know, I won the popular vote,”....

“That’s not true,”....“If we’re going to work together,” Pelosi said, “we have to stipulate to a certain set of facts.”

 

donny doesn't do facts.  Ask anyone.  Nancy's fortitude is heroic in towing the line of facts across dt's alt-reality.  THERE is his wall.  I'm certain many others endeavor the same.

  What we now know is that the coronavirus silently spread for several weeks, without us being aware of it and while we were doing nothing to stop it    . Containment and mitigation efforts could have significantly slowed its spread at an early, critical point, but we frittered away that opportunity.
