Trump Proves His Trolling Game is Expert Level With His Choice for House Speaker

He’s definitely a master of the game.

President Trump has proven once again, that while he might not be the world’s most masterful politician, he’s most certainly King of the Trolls.

After losing the House in Tuesday’s midterm elections, President Trump decided to play the role of friendly adviser to the Democratic Party by penning a tweet that stated Nancy Pelosi deserves to be Speaker of the House.

“In all fairness, Nancy Pelosi deserves to be chosen Speaker of the House by the Democrats. If they give her a hard time, perhaps we will add some Republican votes. She has earned this great honor!” Trump wrote on Twitter as a crisp sunny day broke in Washington, D.C.

Pelosi, the 78-year-old Democrat from California who was House Speaker from 2007 until the GOP took control of the chamber in 2011, is poised to resume that powerful position — and she wants it.

“I feel very confident in the support that I have in the House Democratic Caucus, and my focus is on winning this election because so much is at stake,” Pelosi told reporters in July. Just this month, she told The Washington Post: “Nobody is indispensable. But I do think that I am best qualified to take us into the future, protect the Affordable Care Act, to do our infrastructure bill and the rest. Stepping down this path, I know the ropes.”

Now why would President Trump tout Nancy Pelosi as Speaker of the House? Because having her be the face of the Democrats in Congress would be a dream come true. More and more Democrats have attempted to distance themselves from Pelosi in recent years, not to mention if they gridlock the legislature, Trump will use Pelosi as a target for his reelection campaign in 2020.

Yes, it seems Trump might be playing the long game here.

Throughout the 2018 midterms, Republicans sought to connect Democratic candidates to Pelosi — they ran more than 250 anti-Pelosi TV ads in some 75 House districts during the last months of the campaign. That forced some candidates to repudiate Pelosi — and she wasn’t even Speaker.

For Trump, though, losing the House — but getting Pelosi back as a target for 2020 — is a dream come true. And he knows it.

If Nancy Pelosi is chosen as Speaker of the House, that very well maybe one of the best gifts Trump ever receives from Democrats. We’ll just have to wait and see how the whole thing unfolds.

BOMBSHELL: Report Claims Ukraine Colluded With Hillary Campaign to Defeat Trump

How about them apples?

All we hear about from the left is Russia, Russia, Russia. And yet, years later, there is still zero proof the Trump campaign colluded with the Kremlin to defeat Hillary Clinton in 2016. However, the evidence against the Hillary Clinton campaign continues to mount. Now, this… From The Hill: Ukraine’s top prosecutor divulged in an interview aired Wednesday on Hill.TV that he has opened an investigation into whether his country’s law enforcement apparatus intentionally leaked financial records during the 2016 U.S. presidential campaign about then-Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort in an effort to sway the election in favor of Hillary Clinton. The leak of the so-called “black ledger” files to U.S. media prompted Manafort’s resignation from the Trump campaign and gave rise to one of the key allegations in the Russia collusion probe that has dogged Trump for the last two and a half years. Ukraine Prosecutor General Yurii Lutsenko’s probe was prompted by a Ukrainian parliamentarian’s release of a tape recording purporting to quote a top law enforcement official as saying his agency leaked the Manafort financial records to help Clinton’s campaign. Well, that seems like kind of a problem, huh? Will the mainstream media care to report?? The Hillary Clinton campaign has seemingly been routinely caught working with outside sources to gain insight on Trump. Why is there no media coverage on that angle? Why such hypocrisy? Why such a double standard? Those were rhetorical. Now, it seems as though a foreign government official once offered the Hillary campaign information on then-candidate Donald Trump. From American Mirror: A high-ranking member in the Verkohvna Rada of Ukraine is accusing the head of the country’s anti-corruption bureau of leaking information about associates of Donald Trump to the Hillary Clinton campaign in 2016, according to the television station 112 UA.

New Zealand Prime Minister Just Banned ‘Semi-Automatic’ Guns After Mosque Shooting

Liberals will have a field day…

50 people were killed after a man opened fire at a mosque in New Zealand. It was a terrible tragedy that the far-left mainstream media has decided to link to President Trump, because, of course. Now, the prime minister of the country has decided to ban “military-style semi-automatic” weapons. From Fox News: New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern on Thursday announced the country was immediately banning “military-style semi-automatic weapons” after last week’s attack that killed 50 people at two mosques. Ardern noted, “As I’ve said, what we’ve done here is taken out the guns out of circulation that are most critical to be addressed urgently and that’s what we’ve announced, with essentially almost immediate effect.” Ardern added: “There is more to be done and tranche two will look at issues around licensing, issues around registration, issues around storage. There are a range of other amendments that we believe do need to be made and that will be the second tranche of reforms yet to come.” This is clearly an impulsive move from the New Zealand government. Liberals will be elated. Democrats love them some “sanctuary cities” for people who aren’t supposed to be in the country. Now, some proud American sheriffs are set to make their counties sanctuaries for gun owners in order to preserve their citizens’ Second Amendment rights. Here are the details… From Reuters: A rapidly growing number of counties in at least four states are declaring themselves Second Amendment sanctuaries, refusing to enforce gun-control laws that they consider to be infringements on the U.S. constitutional right to keep and bear arms. Organizers of the pro-gun sanctuaries admit they took the idea from liberals who have created immigration sanctuaries across the United States where local officials defy the Trump administration’s efforts to enforce tougher immigration laws. Now local…
