Nancy Pelosi tried to sandbag Donald Trump.
The Speaker thought she could accuse the President of a crime and whip up the furor over impeachment.
But then Donald Trump shut down Nancy Pelosi with just four words.
Donald Trump was scheduled to meet at the White House with Democrats to discuss infrastructure.
However, an hour before the meeting, Speaker Pelosi met with reporters after a closed-door meeting with the Democrat caucus where rank-and-file Democrats berated her about moving on impeachment.
Pelosi came out of the meeting needing to shore up her left flank and accused the President of a cover-up.
That led to Trump leaving the meeting and the Fake News Media and the Democrats all began parroting the same line that Trump was in a rage.
At first, the President called out Pelosi for her lies.
In a letter to her House colleagues, Nancy Pelosi said: “President Trump had a temper tantrum for us all to see.” This is not true. I was purposely very polite and calm, much as I was minutes later with the press in the Rose Garden. Can be easily proven. It is all such a lie!

Trump then described his behavior in the meeting which was calm, cool, and collected.
Trump wrote, “I was extremely calm yesterday with my meeting with Pelosi and Schumer, knowing that they would say I was raging, which they always do, along with their partner, the Fake News Media. Well, so many stories about the meeting use the Rage narrative anyway – Fake & Corrupt Press!”
The media loves to play up the narrative that Trump is mentally ill or insane.
Pelosi’s comments allowed them to run wild with this fake news.
But Donald Trump stepped up and shut it down.
