Pelosi’s daughter trolls Trump for obsessing over impeachment on Christmas: We didn’t talk about it

One need take only a cursory glance at President Trump’s Twitter to see that he is absolutely consumed with anxiety over his impeachment. He knows there is nothing he can do now that the House has passed articles of impeachment and that even if the Republican-controlled Senate acquits him during his trial he will still be stained forever as one of only three presidents to be impeached. It will define what was already destined to be a cruel and incompetent legacy.

Much of Trump’s ire has been directed at Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), a woman he clearly fears and blames for his historic political humiliation. While many Americans were spending this Christmas week bonding with their loved ones, Trump spent much of the past few days angrily tweeting about Speaker Pelosi. His Twitter page is littered with pathetic attacks on her and unconvincing insistences that he is being unfairly targeted.

McConnell admitted coordinating impeachment with Trump. Add your name to demand he recuse himself from the trial!

While the president is clearly obsessed with Speaker Pelosi, the unhealthy fixation isn’t mutual. Christine Pelosi, the Speaker’s daughter, appeared on CNN and revealed that she spent the holiday with her mother but their family didn’t talk about impeachment at the Christmas dinner table even as Trump blasted out holiday tweets.

“And you know the funny thing is that we are probably one of the few families in America who did not talk about impeachment at the Christmas dinner table. We rarely talk politics,” said Christine Pelosi. New Day host Alisyn Camerota was surprised to hear the revelation and pushed her on it a bit.

“No! We don’t talk politics at our dinner table. We talk sports and movies and mostly she wants to know how the grandchildren are doing so we had a wonderful time with our parents,” Pelosi explained. “And I kind of offhandedly mentioned that things might have been happening on social media yesterday,” Pelosi added, presumably referring to Trump’s Twitter attacks on her mother.

“But basically we’ve just been having some family time, went out to the movies last night and so I think it’s really important and one of the things I talk about in my book about my mom The Nancy Pelosi Way is how she says you have to put politics on the shelf. You can’t obsess about things 24/7,” Pelosi went on. “You need to recharge and rejuvenate and most importantly be with your family. If you don’t build a life with your family then you don’t have a quality of life that you can be out there defending when it’s time to get back to work,” Pelosi said, offering a stark contrast to Trump’s behavior.

Camerota and Pelosi then went on to discuss the Speaker’s handling of impeachment, specifically her brilliant decision to hold off on sending impeachment to the Senate until Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) agrees to hold more than a sham trial.
