Nancy Pelosi is a total powerhouse. She has the ability to get under the president’s skin like no other, and also like very few, the president has marked Pelosi as “off limits” when it comes to retaliation. Normally, Trump would have given Pelosi a nickname befitting a true sexist, but due to her age and gender, Trump knows it’s a really bad look to go after her on a personal level.
Not that retaliation from the president is anything Pelosi would be scared of; she has shown time and again that she has very little care for what the president says, since most of what comes out of his mouth is a proven lie. Exhibit A is the Monday morning Twitter rant The Donald just went on in which Pelosi was named.
“I’ve been waiting all weekend. Democrats must get to work now. Border must be secured! Nancy and Cryin’ Chuck can end the Shutdown in 15 minutes. At this point it has become their (sic), and the Democrats, fault! Dems in Puerto Rico as Shutdown hits day 24. The Fake News gets crazier and more dishonest every single day. Amazing to watch as certain people covering me, and the tremendous success of this administration, have truly gone MAD! Their Fake reporting creates anger and disunity. Take two weeks off and come back rested. Chill!”
Pelosi has now clapped back with a tweet of her own. Check her out:
The truth? Republicans started the #TrumpShutdown — and Democrats are working to end it. @realDonaldTrump, it’s time for you to stop standing in the way of re-opening the government. Let the Senate vote! #EndTheShutdown pic.twitter.com/8Wn438DCfM

The responses Nancy got on this tweet are very telling of the national divide happening in America right now, and sadly, it looks as if there is no end in sight. We saved the best responses to Pelosi’s tweet for you below:
