House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi spoke with MSNBC’s Joy Reid on Sunday and revealed the awkward first meeting she had with President Trump after he won the election.
“So we go to the first meeting with the president. This is historic. House and Senate Democratic and Republican leadership,” Pelosi said, noting that the meeting took place in the East Wing because “he wanted to have a little hospitality, pigs in blankets, kosher meatballs. Bless him for his hospitality.”
That’s when Trump addressed everyone in the room. The first thing out of his mouth to the group? “You know I won the popular vote.”
“First words out of his mouth: ‘You know I won the popular vote.’ Now I’m a very courteous person … but I thought, well he seems a little casual bout this so I’ll be a little casual too.”
“So I said, ‘Mr. President, that isn’t true and there’s no evidence, facts or data to support what you’re saying.’”
That didn’t stop Trump from offering up his own facts, though.
“Oh yeah, 3 to 5 million people voted illegally and I’m not even counting California.”
Then, during her story, Pelosi turned to the crowd and offered this quip about Trump: “Why so insecure?”
“I prayed for him,” she added, “but more importantly, I prayed for the United States of America.”
Let the record show that Donald Trump lost the popular vote by almost 3 million ballots. That apparently hurt his ego, and he still to this day maintains if it weren’t for millions of illegal voters, most likely from Mexico, he would have won that, too.
Maybe it would have been more presidential of him to say something else?
