Pelosi uses Trump to her advantage

Trump's escalated attacks on Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) are proving to be just the gift she needed to unify her caucus.

Pelosi, in recent weeks, has faced a growing clamor from rank-and-file liberals urging Democratic leaders to launch impeachment proceedings against the president — a tactic Pelosi regards as premature.

But Trump's broadsides against the Speaker late last week — and her own sharp denunciations of the president's conduct and demeanor — have rallied Pelosi's troops behind her at a crucial moment in the oversight debate, helping fortify the dam against impeachment before it broke open.

“Nancy Pelosi is the only politician in this country who has gone toe-to-toe with Donald Trump and won,” Rep. Ro Khanna (D-Calif.), a Pelosi ally, told CNN on Thursday. “She says, ‘Look, this is just silly. It's sad what he's doing. It's sad for the country.’ And Trump really doesn't know how to handle her. And that's why I think he's lashing out.”

1. I think most of usw knew she'd bee able to get to him. Very few House Speakers have been able to

control the Dem Caucus. Remember tyhe "Hearding Cats" comments? When she did so well with her Caucus with over 100 members, there was no doubt she could banish the Orangeman to his corner with his pacifier.
