Nancy Pelosi treating Trump like an ill-behaved child is actually working

Pundits have spent the better part of the week comparing President Donald Trump to an ill-behaved grandchild of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. The president frequently searches for ways to create a villain or an adversary he can fight with because it’s the only way he can appear tough or he thinks it’s the only way to garner results. Pelosi, however, doesn’t play that way. Axios reported Sunday that her plan might actually be working.

“Pelosi’s allies said her taunting of Trump now is intentional, designed to get under his skin and elicit an angry reaction,” the Washington Post reported.

“She’s succeeded in making three things very clear: 1) She’s interested in getting things done, and he walked away again; 2) She’s the only adult in Washington and is leading Dems with precision; 3) He’s a toddler who pays a price for attacking her because he resorts to such publicly infantile lows to attack her,” a senior Democratic aide told Axios.

1. I think the author of the article is quite right.

Trump doesn't seem to be handling it particularly well. At all. In fact, the term 'meltdown' comes to mind.

4. Good thing that's not her strategy then.

Is that another take on "the Dems are doing nothing!!!"?

7. the main reason trump is so frustrated is that

he realizes house is not gonna impeach him. A big part of his reelection strategy was to get impeach by the house and get instant acquittal by the senate to boost numbers. No one understands this better than Pelosi so she is teasing him into tantrums that are not impeachable offenses but embarrassment in front of the voters (which is worse, politically speaking).

8. I posted a similar thought a few days ago.

"Nancy is a mother and a grandmother.

She knows how to handle childish temper tantrums, and she knows to not reward bad behavior. Dealing with tRump is like raising another child. This is in her wheelhouse."

12. It's not working in any substantive way. 500 U.S. Attorneys told all of us he should

be indicted based on the evidence to date. We are wasting valuable time, and forget getting a "public consensus" for impeachment. The battle lines have been drawn. Time to get messy. Our country depends on Congress removing Individual 1 for declaring the rule of law to be optional. That is enough. Obstruction, conspiracy. I don't care what you call it. Enough.
