Master of Shade.
Queen of Shade.
Speaker of Shade.
She then offered to pray for him. Ardently. And, perhaps a family intervention is in order? She mused that perhaps the President, unlike her, maybe wasn’t in charge of his own house. She questioned his work ethic. She waved off one of his top aides, insisting that she only deals with Trump.
“I’m not going to talk about her,” she said in response to a question about Kellyanne Conway. “I responded as the speaker of the House to the President of the United States. Other conversations people want to have among themselves is up to them.”
Because that’s what Pelosi does. And Trump, who clearly respects (fears?) Pelosi because of her power, her wealth and her family lineage, is her most effective target.
She doles out shade, the kind that takes a little while to reveal itself. She goes on detours and tangents — in some cases about Jefferson and Roosevelt and Eisenhower and the Erie Canal — and then it becomes apparent that the path leads right to Shadytown. All the while, there is a kind of detached bemusement. A businesslike aloofness to the whole affair.
While Trump fumes, Pelosi gently waves a fan. It isn’t that she’s mad. Just disappointed.
These are classic Jedi-mind tricks, perfected by a woman who had five kids in six years. Five kids in six years.
And for Trump, Pelosi, in all of her dispassionate, unemotional glory, ends up being a giant red flag, a perfect foil.
She embodies what he has never had — a check on his behavior.
