Pelosi slams 'five white guys' negotiating immigration deal

Pelosi slams 'five white guys' negotiating immigration deal

The "white guys" comment was quickly rebuked by Hoyer, who called it "offensive".

Pelosi is scheduled to be the keynote speaker at a Harris County Democratic Party's annual fundraising dinner on February 18. I planned to write up one set of comments, but I'm glad I didn't because another set of comments came up today that received criticism from her #2 in the House. Clinton won 48.5 percent of the vote in the 7th District versus 47.1 percent for Trump.

Asked about whether she and fellow Democrats are willing to admit that it's good news that some firms are able to provide new benefits to employees thanks to the GOP tax package, Pelosi had nothing nice to say. "I am committed to ensuring DREAMers are protected and I will welcome anyone to the table who wants to get this done", Hoyer said in a statement to Politico. "It's not a question of who's there but who's not there". She specifically mentioned the race of the negotiators and the race of those left out. The message: evil white males kept minority lawmakers off the negotiating team because, well, they're evil.

Congress faces a January 19 deadline for reaching an agreement on government spending, and the DACA program is set to end in early March.


"We were hoping for that, but the president is not prepared to do that at this moment", Durbin said. Maybe she thought she could get away with it since white people can't be offended? Easy to see why she might sniff at such a trivial amount.

Laura Ingraham took on House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi for saying companies' bonuses to workers following the passage of the Republican tax cuts are mere "crumbs". Why it would matter beyond Democrats once again playing the race card is unclear. "Are they going to open a hamburger stand next or what?"

"Are they going to open a hamburger stand next or what?" she said, apparently referencing the "Five Guys" burger joints. The play on words references the Five Guys restaurants.
