An eyewitness reports that Democrat House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi is sitting in first class on a flight to Phoenix during the heart of campaign season, while Don Trump Jr. and Kimberly Guilfolyle sit in coach.
“On a plane to Phoenix right now: Nancy “Crumbs” Pelosi sitting up front in first class with her fancy friends; Don Jr. and Kim Guilfoyle on the same plane sitting in coach with the deplorables,” political strategist Arthur Schwartz observed.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi lashed out at Republicans Thursday in a speech in Cambridge, Massachusetts, defending her comments about middle-class Americans getting “crumbs” from the Trump tax cut law.
Pelosi is under fire for saying that a $1,000 bonus for a worker handed out by his or her company after the tax cuts amounts to “crumbs.”
Pelosi defended her comments in a Trump-themed town hall in Cambridge, Massachusetts, sponsored in part by the Not One Penny campaign.
“There’s some tax advantage in the beginning for families and that’s their enticement while they give banquets to the high end, to the top one percent and corporate America,” Pelosi said.
“When I say ‘crumbs,’ they mock me in ads for saying — compared to the banquet they get at the high end,” Pelosi said.
SHAME: Democrats Are Blocking Stimulus Legislation That Includes Second $1,200 TrumpBux Check
Democrats in Congress are blocking a bipartisan $1.5 trillion stimulus package that includes a second round of $1,200 TrumpBux payments to Americans.
Leading House Democrats are saying the bill isn’t big enough of a giveaway, but they favor stimulus measures that would divert funds away from the pockets of everyday Americans to institutions. They want to bail out Democrat state and local governments, and are willing to block TrumpBux payments to Americans if they aren’t allowed to.
The House passed a $3.4 trillion stimulus package in May that was shot down by Senate Republicans. The latest $1.4 stimulus legislation has been presented as a compromise, after House Democrats in turn rejected a thin $500 billion stimulus package proposed by Republicans last week. That package did not include a second round of $1,200 payments, and Republicans are now willing to sign off on another TrumpBux payment in order to pass another round of stimulus.
The $1.5 trillion stimulus legislation emerged from the Problem Solvers Caucus, a group of 25 Republicans and 25 Democrats who emphasize bipartisanship and common ground. Aside from TrumpBux 2, it features $500 billion for cities and states, unemployment insurance of $600 a week, increased SNAP benefits and rental assistance.
Steny Hoyer and Nancy Pelosi are claiming the legislation doesn’t go far enough and that it “leaves too many needs unmet.”
Pelosi and House Democrats are insisting that Congress will remain in session until a second stimulus agreement is met, but in rejecting the Problem Solvers Caucus legislation they’re already shown they’re not open to a generous compromise.
Try asking everyday working Americans of all stripes and walks of life if they’re willing to wait or even go without a second $1,200 stimulus payment in order to provide a bigger bailout to states and cities that already engage in questionable budgetary practices to begin with. The Democrats are resolutely determined to avoid making people the priority in a stimulus package, and will block stimulus legislation to do so.
