Earlier today the House of Representatives voted 217-185 to set aside $5 billion to help fund President Trump’s border wall. Trump’s legislative coup came after several days of high drama in the hallowed halls of Washington, D.C., including, but not limited to, accusations of caving and declarations of the death of Trump’s presidency for the 500th time.
The highlight of the latest episode of “Shut Down Theater,” of course, was Nancy Pelosi’s assertion that the House of Representatives would never in a million years vote to fund Trump’s border wall.
Tonight, however, it would seem that Trump is the one who’s laughing. In fact, President Trump took to Twitter to tweak Nancy Pelosi just a little bit.
Soon to be Speaker Nancy Pelosi said, last week live from the Oval Office, that the Republicans didn’t have the votes for Border Security. Today the House Republicans voted and won, 217-185. Nancy does not have to apologize. All I want is GREAT BORDER SECURITY!

Oh, Mr. Trump!
I’ll give you two guesses as to how Leftists reacted to Trump’s hilarious needling of San Fran Nan.
They voted to give you $5 million. Your wall will cost much much more than that. It doesn’t matter because the Senate won’t support it. You lose!

That’s “billion” with a B there, Skippy.
Try and keep up.
I am pretty sure she means the Senate. You should learn more about Politics.

Actually, no, she was talking about the House.
Trump: “If I needed the votes for the wall in the House I would have them in one session”
Pelosi: “Well then do it. Go do it.”

Again, try and keep up.
LOL.. 217 Isn’t even half the House of Representatives.

And yet it was still enough to win. Funny how that works isn’t it?
Soon to be third in line to Presidency Nancy Pelosi said the vote would not pass the senate. The House passed it because they know it, too. On the bright side : you finally learned how to spell Border correctly. The Adderall must be working!

Man, what is with these Leftists not wanting to accept reality?
