Nancy Pelosi mocks bipartisan meeting on immigration for having only white men

"I am committed to ensuring DREAMers are protected and I will welcome everyone to the table who wants to get this done", the 19-term Maryland Democrat told Politico.

"But as you know, Leader Pelosi is calling all of this 'crumbs, '" Scully replied.

Pelosi is scheduled to be the keynote speaker at a Harris County Democratic Party's annual fundraising dinner on February 18. "I salute the work of the unified House Democratic caucus on behalf of the American people", Pelosi said of the tax cut in a 2011 statement.

"Are they going to open a hamburger stand next or what?" she said, referring to the popular fast food restaurant "Five Guys".

Yet, Pelosi's peers are offended by her "five white guys" comment too.

She said: "I remember one moment when I was going against the pile of the carpet and I couldn't move at all". In fact, she can't even look down at her speech if she's wearing the crown to a public speaking engagement.

Speaking at the Marriot Marquis, Pelosi will be just a few miles from one of the seats Democrats have identified as one of their biggest priorities: the 7th Congressional District, now held by U.S. Rep. John Culberson, R-Houston. She specifically mentioned the race of the negotiators and the race of those left out.

Pelosi was concerned that no minority members of Congress were included in the meeting. Second, it looks pretty clear that Pelosi doesn't have confidence in either Hoyer or Durbin to negotiate, or she wouldn't have made that remark.

"A number of companies are attributing the tax bill for being able to give higher wages to their employees as well as being able to give a number of bonuses to their employees".

The DACA deal is more threatened by Trump's comments than Pelosi's.

Ryan touted the positive effects of Republicans' tax reform legislation to C-SPAN's Steve Scully, who then brought up Pelosi's criticism that any benefits workers have seen are mere "crumbs". It's the best thing Republicans have going for them in this election cycle. Why it would matter beyond Democrats once again playing the race card is unclear.
