President Trump Takes on Pelosi, Kneelers, Football

President Trump gave a pre-Super Bowl interview where he talked about players kneeling for the anthem, Nancy Pelosi during the shutdown, and Barron playing football. The Daily Wire reports:

President Donald Trump took aim at some usual suspects in his Super Bowl pre-game interview with CBS News, tearing into Rep. Nancy Pelosi and players who disrespect the flag by kneeling in protest during the national anthem, and questioning those who are second-guessing his decision to pull American troops out of both Syria and Afghanistan.

The president also briefly discussed the sport of football, telling CBS reporters that he would not pressure his son Barron to take up the game, knowing the risk of long term brain injury.

Trump called Pelosi “very rigid” and suggested he may go around a negotiating Congress to implement the border wall by declaring a national emergency, something he believes is both appropriate and has precedent.

“I think that [Pelosi] was very rigid — which I would expect — but I think she is very bad for our country,” Trump told reporter Margaret Brennan. “She knows that you need a barrier. She knows that we need border security. She wanted to win a political point. I happen to think it’s very bad politics because basically she wants open borders. She doesn’t mind human trafficking or she wouldn’t do this.”

Pelosi’s reputation did suffer more than Trump’s during the shutdown, but he will still have to satisfy his base with strong border security without neglecting other aspects of his promises that made him popular with a wider swath of voters.

Pelosi is a complete POS and should be arrested and indicted for treason for what she is doing by blocking funding for the wall. When tried and found guilty she should be hung by the neck until dead, which is what we do to traitors.

It’s hard for me to understand why so many got upset with federal employees having to do without their paychecks but don’t care about how many Americans are suffering in so many ways because of illegals. They’re murdering, robbing, raping, involved in human trafficking and if that wasn’t enough we’re paying for their health care and giving them money to live on. I know some personally who cannot go to the doctor because they have no health insurance yet illegals can and do. Many federal workers are over paid and under worked.

She should be arrested and charge with conspiracy to assassinate both the president and the vice president.

The problem with shut down is the wrong people loose their checks! The worthless people that you voted into our house of Represenitives are the ones should loose by it they cause it! If theirs was taken away they would straighten up and become humans again.

You are mostly correct! But, you forget these Stinking Politicians can go for along time without any pay. Most of them are either stinking lawyers or other professionals that have amassed millions.

Trump didn’t point out that peloser is losing her mental health, all you have to do is look at her latest video to see how much damage she has, she is being arrogant and just trying to score political points off Trump, the democRATS more or less actually said they would fund Trumps border barriers if he would end the shutdown and now peloser is trying to renege on their word

Build the wall Mr President. Sure there will be hand wringing and screaming but it will all settle down in time when the new reality takes hold.

The Criminal Justice Act 1990 abolished the death penalty, setting the punishment for treason at life imprisonment, with parole in not less than forty years. No person has been charged under the Treason Act.

If the people who voted for had any brains they would not have done it, but there is a chance that if they get to fed up they can ask for a recall and kick her ass out of office as easy as pie.
