To say that the people of this nation are wrought with Trump fatigue would be the understatement of this pathetic presidential term. Frankly, we literally cannot wait for this dog and pony show to finally be over with, so we can finally start to put these disastrous, painful, PTSD-inducing four years behind us and begin to heal and grow away from all this pain and suffering we’ve been forced to deal with.
And evidently, it’s not just us average Joes out here in America that are itching for this all to be over with. Apparently, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is getting rather excited about Donald Trump’s impending departure, as well.
Recently, Speaker Pelosi expressed as much, with her usual flair of cattiness that we just can’t get enough of, and frankly, we’re living for it.
Pelosi said, “I’m counting down the hours ‘til he’s gone,” according to a report from POLITICO. “I plan to pull him out of there by his hair, his little hands, and his feet.”
POLITICO goes on to report that the Speaker’s remarks came during troubled negotiations between Democratic and Republican lawmakers regarding what eventually turned into a $2.3 trillion coronavirus relief and government funding bill.
The POLITICO report notes that, as we’ve come to expect, Donald Trump was largely absent during said negotiations, instead continuing to spend all his time focused on somehow overturning the results of the election he sorely lost.
It’s certainly no secret that now-outgoing President Trump and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi have never had a “good” relationship — with Nancy telling CNN back in October, “I don’t speak to the president. I speak to his representative.”
Trump claimed that COVID relief negotiations have been stalled due to reluctance from Democrats to hand him a political win amid election season. With Trump stating recently, “I know Pelosi, I know Schumer very well. They don’t want to make a deal because they think it’s good for politics if they don’t make a deal. I’m taking the high road by not seeing them. That’s the high road.”
Once a bipartisan deal had been reached between the branches of Congress that offers the American public a measly $600 relief check, Trump threw in another wrench, claiming he wanted the direct payments to be $2000 — a move that House Speaker Pelosi was all too happy to immediately agree to:
Republicans repeatedly refused to say what amount the President wanted for direct checks. At last, the President has agreed to $2,000 — Democrats are ready to bring this to the Floor this week by unanimous consent. Let’s do it! https://t.co/Th4sztrpLV

To be completely honest, God only knows what will end up coming of these direct payments and relief bills. All I know is, if they would pay-per-view Nancy Pelosi dragging Donald Trump from the White House by his hair, we could give every American thousands from profits alone.
