Report: Nancy Pelosi Questions President Trump’s Manhood After Oval Office Showdown
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), soon to be Speaker, said she was ‘trying to be the mom’ and questioned President Donald Trump’s manhood in comments following a contentious Oval Office meeting Tuesday with Trump, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and Vice President Mike Pence to discuss funding for a border wall and other budget items with Trump threatening to shut down the government if Congress doesn’t fund a wall.

Politico reported Pelosi’s comments about Trump’s manhood:
“Trump “must have said the word ‘wall’ 30 times,” the House minority leader said, according to multiple sources in the room.
“I was trying to be the mom,” she added, but “it goes to show you: you get into a tinkle contest with a skunk, you get tinkle all over you.”
“And then, Pelosi went for the most sensitive part of Trump’s ego.
“It’s like a manhood thing with him — as if manhood can be associated with him,” she deadpanned. “This wall thing.”
…“The press is all there! Chuck is really shouting out. I was trying to be the mom. I can’t explain it to you. It was so wild,” she said, later adding: “But the fact is we did get him to say, to fully own that the shutdown was his. That was an accomplishment.”
New York Times reporter Julie Davis also reported Pelosi’s ‘manhood’ insult, “Aide in rm when Pelosi described Oval mtg to colleagues said she crowed about Dems having gotten him to “fully own” a shutdown. Also said wall is “like a manhood thing for him. As if manhood could ever be associated with him.”
