He’s definitely a master of the Twitter 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.

Nancy Pelosi goes to get her hair done, but nobody else can. Gavin Newsom attends a fancy dinner, but nobody else can. Now, Democrat Governor Phil Murphy has been caught being a hypocrite, too. What is it with these Dems, thinking the rules don’t apply to them? Do they genuinely believe “Do as I say, not as I do?” Unreal, man. WATCH: https://twitter.com/zerosum24/status/1330682230100930562?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1330682230100930562%7Ctwgr%5E&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.weaselzippers.us%2F More on Murphy and New Jersey, via Fox News: Howell Township, New Jersey, Police Chief Andrew Kudrick Jr. told “Fox & Friends Weekend” that his department will not enforce Gov. Phil Murphy’s “draconian” coronavirus guidelines for the holidays. Murphy, a Democrat, has called for a 10-person limit for in-household gatherings. “Our community is hurting,” Kudrick said. “I live here. I grew up here. I shop here. I go out to dinner here. And I talk one-on-one with our business owners… and I see how much they’re hurting.” Recall him, New Jersey!

Black Lives Matter Wants Biden to Begin ‘Roadmap’ Toward Abolishing Prisons & Police

Don’t forget about reparations!

They should really change the name to “criminal lives matter.” That’s what BLM stands for. That’s who they represent. With their latest statement, the organization is making it known that lawbreakers should be allowed to roam the streets without fear of being arrested. What a message to send. Keep this up, BLM, and the GOP will retain the Senate and take the House in 2022. From The Daily Wire: Despite indications that the “Defund the Police” movement had a negative impact on Democrats’ election success, leaders of Black Lives Matter are petitioning for a meeting with an incoming Joe Biden-Kamala Harris administration, and demanding that Biden support the “BREATHE Act,” which includes a “roadmap’ to abolishing law enforcement and a demand for reparations. The Act, which BLM touts as “a radical reimagining of public safety, community care, and how we spend money as a society,” is its central legislative effort, and represents a list of demands that align only with the aims of far-left legislators. Continued: But, Fox News reports that BLM’s founders, including self-identified Marxist Patrisse Cullors, and their “Squad” allies in Congress — notably Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) and Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) — are pressing for the BREATHE Act to pass Congress and receive a rubber stamp from any Biden White House. Black Lives Matter and Antifa radicals have no intention of slowing down. They’re just going to keep ramping up the violence. Like a middle child, these babies clearly crave attention. But how much longer can police officers put up with the harassment and threats? How much longer will liberal “leaders” allow these acts of aggression to continue?
