    Trump's 'meltdown' apparently started when Pelosi told him 'all roads with you lead to Putin'

    Pelosi said Russia has long sought a "foothold in the Middle East" and he had just given Russian President Vladimir Putin such an opening, adding: "All roads with you lead to Putin." That's when the already-tense meeting "reached a fever pitch," the Times reports.

    The Associated Press recounts the next few exchanges:

    Trump: "I hate ISIS more than you do."

    Pelosi: "You don't know that."

    Schumer: "Is your plan to rely on the Syrians and the Turks?"

    Trump: "Our plan is to keep the American people safe."

    Pelosi: "That's not a plan. That's a goal."

    Well! These were some dynamics!

    "All roads lead to Putin"?

    and,

    "That's not a plan, that's a goal"?

    Yeah, I see how this meeting blew-up. Particularly with the Putin comment (whether accurate or not).

    I suspect Trump has a sore spot for Putin accusations.

    Another thought ... if this is what Pelosi is willing to say ... then I suspect these articles are going to be a hell of a lot more than about the phonecall, but something deeper.

    I give her credit. She's a fighter, and calls it like it is. Both are great leadership qualities.

    The three whiners who stormed out of the meeting are those who had the meltdown. They couldn't wait to run to the media and blather about the POTUS.... The rest of the people who were in the room stayed and went on with their meeting. Pelosi was being overly theatrical, business as usual with her.

    Ooof. That's not a plan, that's a goal. Hilarious.

    Pelosi for the win.

    She's talking to a guy who claims to be a big manager and she took him to school.

    So he attacked her personally because you know, that's what you do when you have nothing else.

    He knows he's wrong and he loves Putin. Who is Nancy to tell him he cannot express his man-love for Putin while being President? How dare she!
    Trump knows it wasn't a plan and was just a goal...he was...you know...just feeling emotional because Putin left him hanging on Syria, he needs a call to tell him it's all gonna be OK.

    I hate ISIS more than you do. What a moron.

    Of course they walked out, they are dealing with a child.

    Kevin McCarthy: Top Democrats who walked out of White House meeting just '''infatuated''' with impeachment | Fox News

    "These people are infatuated — they are fixated on impeaching this president instead of worrying about fixing our problems," he said.

    "Who is the leader? The person who stayed in the room and had a discussion. The people who left the room are the ones who can't handle it."

    ??

    Without Pelosi & Schumer, there is no substantive meeting. Trump can't get past the House without Pelosi.
