Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) sat down with a CNN reporter for dumplings with a side of Trump Derangement Syndrome and claimed the former president is a “child” in need of a “family intervention.”
In their first joint sit-down interview, the destructive duo dished with CNN’s Jamie Gangel in one of their favorite Capitol Hill hang-outs, Hunan Dynasty, a Chinese restaurant in Washington, D.C., to discuss Trump, President Joe Biden, January 6, and, above all else, their undying devotion to one another.
Schumer stated he didn’t believe the American people would re-elect Trump as president in 2024.
“The American people have gotten wise to him,” he told Gangel. “[It] took a while, but they did.”
A new SSRS-conducted CNN poll seems to back up Schumer’s claims.
“About 6 in 10 Republicans and Republican-leaning independents say they want their party to nominate someone other than Trump in 2024 (62%),” the survey found, “while a similar 59% of Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents say they’d like to see someone other than Biden at the top of their ticket in the next presidential election.”
But of course, Pelosi went a step further, dismissing Trump with a disdain that can only serve to divide an already splintered nation.
“I don’t think we should talk about him while we’re eating,” she stated snidely before proceeding to do exactly that.
“I think there’s a need for an intervention by his family or something,” she continued when reminded that she had previously called Trump “insane.”
“I don’t think he’s on the level now,” she said.
The two cackled about their ability to “handle” Trump, showering praise upon each other for their mutual disrespect for the 45th president of the United States.
“I tell people Nancy instinctively knew how to handle Trump because her first 35-40 years of life she raised five children,” Schumer said. “And that’s what helped her deal with Trump, because he ultimately was a child.”
Recalling a heated December 2018 with Trump in the Oval Office over his threat in front of the media to shut down the government over the funding of his border wall, Schumer revealed the two of them worked together to push the then-president into making the controversial remark.
“We sort of set him up instinctively,” Schumer explained. “We didn’t plan this. Everybody thought we planned this out.”
“Chuck was masterful,” Pelosi gushed.
“She set him up so I could go in for the kill,” Schumer added with an arrogant grin.
On the subject of January 6, 2021, Pelosi and Schumer addressed the video conveniently released in October of the two of them frantically trying to call for help after they’d already been escorted to safety.
“For a while, cellphone service didn’t work,” Schumer explained, adding that Acting Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen wouldn’t put Trump on the phone.
“It’s really a tragedy that they didn’t send the National Guard sooner,” Pelosi noted.
But, as American Wire News reported in August, Trump has claimed he did give the order for 10,000 National Guard troops to be deployed, and he suggested that it was Pelosi who shut the request down.
In a March 2021 interview with Fox News, Trump said, “I definitely gave the number of 10,000 National Guardsmen and [said] I think you should have 10,000 of the National Guard ready.”
“They took that number,” he continued. “From what I understand, they gave it to the people at the Capitol, which is controlled by [House Speaker Nancy] Pelosi. And I heard they rejected it because they didn’t think it would look good.”

And, if all of that wasn’t enough to put you off your Peking duck, the conversation devolved into a love fest between Schumer and Pelosi and their shared adoration of President Joe Biden.
As the oldest sitting president in our nation’s history, Pelosi said Biden has “done an excellent job.”
“I hope that he does seek reelection,” she continued. “He’s a person with great vision for our country. He’s been involved for a long time so he has great knowledge of the issues, and the challenges we face.”
As though she’d been downing shots of shaojiu when no one was looking, Pelosi also characterized Biden as “the most empathetic person.”
“He connects with people,” she insisted.
“The vision, the knowledge, the strategic thinking is all here,” she said. “The empathy is from the heart. And I think he’s a great president.”
Playing Tweedle Dee to her Dum, Schumer agreed, saying he’d absolutely vote for Biden again.
“Yeah. He’s done an excellent, excellent job,” he said. “And if he runs, I’m going to support him all the way.”
And, of course, the duo expressed their admiration and love for one another, with Schumer saying they were “almost like brother and sister.”
Despite Pelosi’s departure as the leader of the House Democrats, Schumer said he’ll still be picking up his flip-phone to call on the former Speaker.
“I will be certainly calling,” he said, “and seek her advice and a feeling of what’s going on in the House and what we can get done.”
