President Donald Trump trashed House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s “pathetic crumbs” comments on Thursday, equating the former Speaker’s delusional rhetoric with Hillary Clinton’s much-maligned “deplorables” speech during the 2016 election.
The President was speaking with Republicans at a retreat in West Virginia where he touted the higher wages and big bonuses paid out in the aftermath of the GOP tax cuts; blasting Pelosi’s out-of-touch response to the booming US economy.
“We were waiting until February, and then we got hit with these corporations giving tremendous bonuses to everybody that Nancy Pelosi called ‘crumbs.’ That was bad That could be like ‘deplorable.’ Does that make sense? Trump asked.
“Deplorable and crumbs? Those two words, they seem to have a resemblance. I hope it has the same meaning. She called it crumbs when people are getting $2,000, $3,000… that’s not crumbs that’s a lot money.”
