Pelosi: Trump 'Doesn't Seem To Have Attention Span' To Listen To Intel Chiefs

........

Pelosi, D-Calif., told reporters that intelligence officials were “courageous” in speaking “truth to power” by publicly contradicting Trump in congressional testimony this week.

“One dismaying factor of it all is that the president just doesn’t seem to have the attention span or the desire to hear what the intelligence community has been telling him,” Pelosi said, calling Trump’s comments “cause for concern.”


.......


Pelosi said Trump’s comments were “stunning.”

“It’s important for the Republicans in Congress to recognize they have to weigh in with the president to say, ‘You can’t act without knowledge,'” Pelosi said.

queen of death by kindness and fact. LOSER45 thinks of her as a subspecies because she's female but he doesn't realize she can trash his every effort to do anything, he can't allow himself to recognize her power.

I love how she diplomatically puts him in his place every day. She's a true role model.

4. I agree!

This is just like her comment about when the orange menace cancelled her fact finding flight to Afghanistan ... “Perhaps the President doesn’t understand how these things work ...”

16. "Soon we can ignore them again."

I certainly hope that is so - but I also hope that we've learned our lesson in not assuming that the fools will not win. There is NO doubt that it is just that that gave us IQ45.
I still feel bad that there are so many that are not appreciating how well the Speaker is working him over - a "Master Class" in how to do it right!

18. I think Pelosi is really too subtle for them to get what she's doing

When she makes a remark saying she can’t believe Trump would be so vindictive they think she’s being sincere. And up to now most of her responses have been ladylike smackdowns, so naturally they miss the subtle smack down parts.

It takes some smarts to understand and appreciate them.

2. "...doesn't have the desire"

seems to hit the nail on the head. He really doesn't care, does he? Just ask his wife. He never gave a shit about this country or anyone except himself. Narcissist! Sociopath! Sadist!

10. You've nailed it, Big..............

Unfortunately, nothing we can do or care about matters to IQ45 - he's focused on:
Who likes him
Who doesn't like him
Who he's pissed off at
Who has betrayed him
Who might look better than him
Who might look smarter than him (everybody not wearing a red hat)
Where his next Big Mac is
Where his cell phone is
When he gets to golf again
When he gets to see Vlad again
When he gets to see his Korean lover again
When Faux & Frauds is on again

So, did you see ANYTHING in that list that shows ANY concern about the United States of America?

19. So far though his wife is less engaged than he is.

The only difference between them that I can see is she doesn’t need public adulation. She seems to be quite content in just despising us from afar. Evidently the more afar the better.

to openly highlight his attention span of a gnat.

11. Experience we can trust! NANCY PELOSI ROCKS!!!

And nothing but the beautiful sound of crickets coming from the folks who said she was "too old" and "too much of a lightning rod" and that we needed "new blood". So glad that the "on-the-job-training" advocates lost that battle.

Nancy Pelosi is the BEST WOMAN FOR THE JOB!!

He has the attention span of a single Chyron, that is, if he could read.
