Mitch McConnell just trolled Nancy Pelosi with a move nobody saw coming
Nancy Pelosi’s life revolves around trying to remove President Trump.
Every minute of her day is based around that goal.
That’s why it was so easy for Mitch McConnell to troll her with a move nobody saw coming.
Passing two articles of impeachment against President Trump is the biggest accomplishment Nancy Pelosi achieved in the Trump-era.
And it will all be for nothing considering the Senate has virtually no chance of removing President Trump.
Not to mention it riled up Trump’s base in a way that will help him going into the 2020 election.
But that isn’t stopping Pelosi from celebrating her small victory.
When the House finally signed the articles over to the Senate, she passed out commemorative pens to celebrate the occasion.
This is a move that even CNN hosts have criticized, calling it “jarring” and “unusual.”
So when it came time for the Senate to sign their Oath Book before beginning the trial, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell found a way to subtly troll Pelosi.
He called everybody up one by one, in alphabetical order to sign the book.
And everybody used just one pen to sign the book, which is in itself an unusual move.
It was an obvious swipe at Pelosi, and a way to show that the Senate isn’t going to treat this as a victory, like Pelosi did.
Pelosi’s decision to hand out commemorative pens faced criticism due to the fact that she spent months claiming that impeachment was a somber moment for America.
She claimed it was something nobody wanted to do, as it is a divisive move, but that it was necessary.
Those pens made it clear as day she was lying, and that the whole impeachment proceedings are as partisan as Trump claimed since day one.
Now that impeachment is in the Senate, where Pelosi doesn’t make the rules, the process is expected to come to an end quickly, with Trump being exonerated of all charges.
Some are predicting it will end in just a week, which will send a strong message that the Senate is united.
Assuming it ends quickly, Trump will have a chance to respond to the entire debacle during his State of the Union in early February.
