When it comes to talking out of both sides of their mouth, nobody’s better at it than Nancy Pelosi. At the 6:34 mark of this video, Ms. Pelosi said “I don’t think we should have a debate in front of the press on this but the fact is the House Republicans could bring up this bill and pass this bill, if they had the votes, immediately and set the tone” for the debate:

Later in the meeting with President Trump, Ms. Pelosi said “There are no Republican votes for the wall.” Earth to Ms. Pelosi: here’s breaking news for you — the House already passed the bill that includes $5,000,000,000 for President Trump’s wall. Still later, Ms. Pelosi said “We’re coming in here in good faith to negotiate with you to see how we can keep the government open.”

What a pile of BS. What Ms. Pelosi means by “good faith negotiations” is that she expects President Trump to drop his funding for the wall. She and Sen. Schumer accused President Trump of wanting to shut down the government unless he got what he wanted. The Democrats’ position is just as hardline as President Trump’s. The difference is that President Trump highlighted how effective a border wall is. The difference is that Ms. Pelosi rejected President Trump’s verified facts.

In fact, Ms. Pelosi insisted that Israel’s wall wasn’t effective. Seriously?! Any idiot that thinks that the Israelis don’t know what they’re doing when it comes to their security is either stupid or lying. Period. What’s hilarious is when President Trump interjects that “It’s called transparency, Nancy”, then she replies “It isn’t transparency when we don’t agree on a set of facts.”

Actually, whether both sides agree on a set of facts or not, negotiations held in front of the TV cameras is transparency. The root word for transparency is transparent. The definition of transparent is “having the property of transmitting rays of light through its substance so that bodies situated beyond or behind can be distinctly seen.” Other definitions for transparent are “manifest; obvious; open; frank; candid.”

What’s more open or candid than a negotiation held in front of TV cameras? Frankly, Ms. Pelosi appears to want these negotiations to be held behind closed doors so she and Sen. Schumer can come out to the TV cameras and mischaracterize what was said behind closed doors.
