Kevin McCarthy Blasts Pelosi After She Throws Tantrum – ‘Meeting With Trump Was More Productive After Pelosi Left’ (VIDEO)
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy blasted Speaker Pelosi Wednesday evening after she threw a tantrum and stormed out of a meeting with President Trump.
Prior to the meeting, the House passed a resolution opposing President Trump’s decision to pull US troops out of Northern Syria.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) threw a tantrum and stormed out of the meeting then blasted Trump in a presser outside of the White House.
Initial reports claimed Trump called Pelosi a “third rate politician,” however it was later corrected to accurately report that he called her a ‘third grade politician.”
McCarthy told reporters that once Nancy Pelosi left the meeting, things were “calmer and more productive.”
“I’ve been in a lot of meetings where individuals get heated with one another. I do not believe in that process, that you get up and you walk away,” McCarthy said. “The other Democrats did not walk away. They stayed in the room and you know what happened when Speaker Pelosi left the room it seemed calmer; it seemed much more productive.”
“This isn’t the first time that she [Pelosi] has done this. This isn’t the first time that I had to witness this,” he added.
McCarthy said that Pelosi’s whole focus has to be on impeachment.
Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy says when Pelosi and Schumer left, "we had a very good, productive meeting."
