    Given the way the House interprets the rule it doesn’t change anything. On the other hand it seems to be nothing more than procedural matter so why anyone would resign over being out of order in a meeting is beyond me.

    She did break the rules given the way the rules are interpreted but so what. She didn’t break the law. She violated a parliamentary rule the punishment for which is apparently losing one’s speaking privileges for a day. BFD.

    As recently as last November I was against Pelosi. By January I had become a fan.

    I'm still a fan.

    Yes, there's really no reason for people to continue to put out false information. She obviously broke the rules.

    Gee, Biden seems pretty healthy for a guy who got an "asthma" deferment. Does that make him a creepy hair sniffing scumbag?

    Nancy may be a privileged rich white politician, but she sounds like Einstein compared to the new upstart women in Congress with mixed allegiances to varying religions and ethnic groups around the world.

Based on many events over almost fifty years of Mr. Trump's personal history, in my considered opinion he is a prejudiced, bigoted, mysogynistic, xenophobic person and a very strongly racist individual.

    So what is Pelosi saying? That Trump is not a racist but occasionally makes comments that might be taken as having racist overtones by some who do not understand his meaning? Surely that must be it, because otherwise she is clearly saying he is racist. You know the whole words matter thing. Democrats can't have it both ways, constantly accusing him of racist remarks and openly calling him racist but denying it on the floor of the House when openly breaking the rules.

    If I said 1 post you wrote out of 100 posts was stupid I would not be implying that you are stupid. Just that the post was. We all do and say stupid things from time to time. Calling that out does not imply that speaker things we are stupid just that the statement / action is.

    Same thing here. Anyone who reads her statement as saying he’s racist it might be because given the totality of his behavior they might be thinking “well yeah he’s racist.” But that interpretation is them. The statement in isolation does not call the President racist.
    Could be, reading her statement could imply exactly what you stated. It also could imply that Pelosi and the Democrats think Trump is racist even if you don't. That it is nothing more than using racism as a political tool to attempt to gain a political advantage. It all depends on how each individual takes it, probably whether one is a Democrat or a Republican, a Trump supporter or an anti-Trumper. Those folks have their minds made up already, a very long time ago. there's no changing them whatsoever.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.
