Report: At WH dinner, Pelosi asked, 'Do the women get to talk around here?'

Washington (CNN)House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi asked "Do the women get to talk around here?" during the White House dinner on Wednesday night over the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, according to a report in The Washington Post.

The Post reported that during the dinner, Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross asked the 11 people at the table -- including Pelosi, the only woman present -- what President Donald Trump got out of the deal made with Democrats on border security and DACA.

As Pelosi tried to make her point that Trump would get support from Democrats on a variety of issues, the men at the table started talking over each other.
"Do the women get to talk around here?" Pelosi asked, two people familiar with the exchange told the Post.

The table fell silent and she was not interrupted again, the Post reported.

1. Wonder if she is a fan of the movie

Sometimes a great notion AKA Never give an inch?

In the breakfast scene Henry stamper the main character son asks:

"I was wondering don't the ladies ever get to speak?"

3. Donald allowed his father to order steak for his gf/wife Ivana. Both men thought she was wrong

 

to not allow it and wanting to order something else.

Just a small detail but telling.



Fred would order steak. Then Donald would order steak. … Everybody order steak. I told the waiter, “I would like to have fish.” O.K., so I could have the fish. And Fred would say to the waiter: “No, Ivana is not going to have a fish. She is going to have a steak.” I said, “No, I’m going to have my fish.” And Donald would come home and say, “Ivana, why would you have a fish instead of a steak?” I say, “Because I’m not going to be told by somebody to have something which I don’t want.”

6. They treat women like children.

Telling them what to eat, that they have to eat it rare, probably. I bet donald orders his well done to be rebellious.

9. And more power to her! Give them an inch and they will at some

point not even have women at the table. Which is one of the reasons our country is so f'ed up right now. I can easily name one woman who had they listened to we would not be embarassed on a daily basis over GD twitter messages among many other things.
