When the GOP tax bill was put forward, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) called it the “worst bill in the history” of Congress.
After the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act was signed into law, multiple companies announced bonuses and pay increases. For example, Comcast gave $1,000 bonuses to 100,000 employees, as Independent Journal Review previously reported.
Pelosi came out to comment again. This time, she called the announced bonuses and wage increases “crumbs.”
President Donald Trump chose to respond to Pelosi’s comments during a speech on tax reform on Monday.
“So Nancy Pelosi, again, said that’s ‘crumbs.’ Well, she’s a rich woman who lives in a big beautiful house in California who wants to give all of your money away. And she talked about crumbs. And I really think her statement about crumbs — because you’re getting thousands and thousands of dollars, and you’re getting it every year.
So I think her statement crumbs will be equivalent — I said this the other day for the first time. When I first heard the word deplorable, I thought it was a bad thing.
But I had no idea it was not going to be good for our opponent. It was not good. Because about two days after she said it, I go to a rally and everyone’s wearing shirts, “I am a deplorable.” “We’re all deplorables.” I said, ‘What’s going on with the word deplorable, Rob?'”
Trump continued, taking a major shot at Pelosi. “We had that, right? It just went pretty wild. It was not a good day for [Hillary Clinton]. And I think this is not a good day for Nancy Pelosi. She’s our secret weapon,” the president said, as the crowd laughed.
“No, she’s our secret — I just hope they don’t change her. There are a lot of people that want to run her out.”
