Democratic leaders left a White House meeting after President Trump went on an “insulting diatribe,” calling House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) a “third-rate politician.” The meeting was supposed to focus on Syria and ISIS.

“He was insulting, particularly to the speaker,” Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said at a press conference after they walked out. “She kept her cool completely. But he called her a third-rate politician. He said that there are communists involved and you guys might like that.”

“I mean, this was not a dialogue. It was sort of a diatribe — a nasty diatribe not focused on the facts, particularly the fact of how to curtail ISIS, a terrorist organization that aims to hurt the United States in our homeland.”

“What we witnessed on the part of the president was a meltdown. Sad to say,” Pelosi told reporters. “I think now we have to pray for his health. Because this was a very serious meltdown on the part of the president.”

An unhinged letter Trump sent to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan was leaked before the meeting. While the rest of the country were embarrassed by the highly unusual and juvenile tone of the note, Turkish citizens are incensed.

The letter begged Erdogan to “make a deal” and insisted the Turkish president consider how history will judge him.

“It will look upon you forever as the devil if good things don’t happen,” Trump wrote in the letter. “Don’t be a tough guy. Don’t be a fool!”

“Now, Erdogan has no option but to delay ceasefire in Syria, less he be humiliated in front of his nation as weak and bowing to America’s threat,” Soner Cagaptay, a prominent Turkey expert, tweeted.

But when Trump released a photo of Pelosi giving him hell at the White House, calling her “Nervous Nancy” and implying the Democrats were cowardly for leaving, the tactic backfired spectacularly. While the internet went wild with memes and jokes, Pelosi’s clapback may be the best of all.

She made the picture her cover photo on social media accounts.
