Kellyanne Conway has a new nickname for Nancy Pelosi.
I’m sure you have your own.
As spurs push deeper into the dirt, Trump’s trying to do what he can to end the shutdown.
Fox News reports:
The White House on Thursday signaled that a “large down payment” on border wall funding — and potentially less than the $5.7 billion that President Trump has long requested — could be sufficient to bring Republicans to the table and end the ongoing partial federal government shutdown.
The possible concession from the White House came just minutes after the Senate rejected both Democratic and GOP proposals to end the shutdown, with both measures falling far short of the 60-vote threshold needed to pass.
Shortly afterward, Pelosi shrugged off Trump and the whole prospect, saying it wasn’t “a reasonable agreement.”
The White House, in response, slammed Pelosi’s consistent rejections of compromise proposals. The House speaker has previously said she would not support any legislation that includes funding for the wall, which she characterized as an “immorality.”
Speaking to Fox News Thursday, Kellyanne Conway gave Nancy a new, super-boss James Bondish moniker:
“I know some people call her ‘Fancy Nancy’ — these days, I think a better nickname is ‘Dr. No.'”
“Just keep hearing ‘no’ — just ‘no no no’ all the time – you can’t just stomp your feet and say, ‘Harrumph.'”
If she’s a doctor, many conservatives would surely suspect proctology.
