So you have nothing to say about my post? You could at least try to address it.

How is this for WORKING TOGETHER?!?! Republican President Donald Trump is not only endorsing Democrat Congresslady Nancy Pelosi as House Speaker, when Democrats take control of the U.S. House on 1/1/2019. But he also is willing to help her secure the votes necessary, if she doesn't mind.
How about ATS Members? Do you feel that Nancy Pelosi will be a good Speaker of the House for 2019/2020?

I love it.
He's giving her the kiss of death to ensure she gets a major challenge from the alt-left.
Just imagine...if all or most Democrats turn against Pelosi, due to Trump endorsement, and Trump helps her get elected anyway, intentionally or otherwise. I don't know what the results of that would be.
Also, picture this scenario I just for shiggles. Trump intentionally destroys an opponent like Pelosi or someone of similar standing by saying or tweeting "Oh, don't worry! She's on our side now. I talked to her." Just make sure he talks to her and they agree about something before he says it. Maybe he even deletes the tweet for extra sensationalism. The context of the "talk" they had will be explained later by the opposition, Trump may, or may not concur, but either way, the idea will stick in people's head, and they will also be thinking "well it IS true she agreed about something with him...hmmm, why take a chance? we gotta get rid of her."
I agree. Trump doing what he does best...trolling!

He's just playing with the leftists. It's fun to watch.
Wait until the civil war begins with new Democrats and the old.
Unlikely. The ones who will confirm her as Speaker of the House (a post she's held before) are members of the House of Representatives, not the public. I don't think that they'll be fooled by Trump's endorsement. I don't think they'll count it as a factor.

it's been said that having her as speaker enables Trump to point and access blame for just about anything not working, so it can be an easy 2 years with a good shot at re-election.
