Pelosi And Schumer Issue Response To Trump Speech About Border, Immediately Get Trolled
Right after President Trump’s speech about the southern border, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer gave a rebuttal so cringe-worthy in its optics that they immediately got trolled on social media for it.
This is what happens when you’re a couple of old, out of touch politicians who are more concerned with looking good to your base supporters so you can keep your job than you are for standing on principle.
In the age of social media, the substance of what people say is often eclipsed by optics, and on that front, President Trump won Tuesday night without so much as having to yawn. With Schumer’s hunched body hulking beside Nancy Pelosi’s uncomfortable stiffness, the odd-pairing echoed that of an illustration straight from the pages of Alvin Schwartz’s “Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark.”
Within minutes of the speech, trolls were already off to the races, their cuts swift and merciless:

Of course, the left immediately launched into spin mode, doing their best to try and make the image out to be some sort of display of solidarity against Trump:

The real question is how much longer are Democratic voters going to allow themselves to be duped by these representatives of the establishment who only care about furthering their own careers and being lifetime welfare recipients?
