Donald Trump is truly losing his mind this morning after learning that GOP slime Representative Thomas Massie from Kentucky is using a technicality to force an in person vote in the House by threatening to vote “no” on the $2.2 trillion stimulus package that passed unanimously in the Senate.
Trump has been lashing out about it all morning and in the process of doing so completely admitted, whether he realizes it or not, that House Majority Speaker Nancy Pelosi successfully out-negotiated him on the Coronavirus financial relief bill. Trump is especially panicked over this because ultimately he will be blamed for this delay in desperately needed financial assiatance.
“Looks like a third rate Grandstander named @RepThomasMassie, a Congressman from, unfortunately, a truly GREAT State, Kentucky, wants to vote against the new Save Our Workers Bill in Congress. He just wants the publicity. He can’t stop it, only delay, which is both dangerous & costly. Workers & small businesses need money now in order to survive. Virus wasn’t their fault,” Trump first said, lashing out at Massie.
It’s hard to see how attacking Massie like this will get him to come around, but whatever. Trump continued his ranting and then fully admitted that Speaker Pelosi got him to give up things” in order to get the relief bill passed, “It is “HELL” dealing with the Dems, had to give up some stupid things in order to get the “big picture” done. 90% GREAT! WIN BACK HOUSE, but throw Massie out of Republican Party!”

Wow! What an admission! Trump may think it’s “stupid” to give people who lost their jobs and may have a lot of difficulty finding news ones up to an extra $600 per week for a mere 4 months, but Speaker Pelosi and Democrat leaders getting that unemployment provision into the bill may well have saved the economy.
At the end of the day, Trump here is admitting that he did not get his way by saying he, “had to give up” things. That means you were out-negotiated! What did Speaker Pelosi have to give up? Not much because she got stuff added to the bill, not Trump.
