On Wednesday, Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi went to bat for DACA recipients with a record-breaking speech that lasted over 8 hours. One journalist pointed out, and it’s likely true, that “Pelosi spent more time today arguing for Dreamers on the House floor than Donald Trump spends during an entire day on his duties as president.”
And her endurance didn’t go unnoticed by anyone – including Republicans, many of whom applauded when she wrapped up her speech.
One Republican, in particular, went the extra mile and gave her props on Trump’s favorite political platform, Twitter, and this is sure to piss him off, but House Speaker Paul Ryan’s blood will boil when he sees it because it’s a tweet by one of his top staffers.
After Pelosi finished her marathon speech, Brendan Buck, who is Counsel to Speaker Ryan, tweeted this:
Legit props for the endurance

Nancy Pelosi has endured a lot of abuse from Trump in the past couple of years, but as the midterms get closer – it’s becoming much worse. Just this past week, Trump mentioned Pelosi during a speech in Ohio calling her the “Republicans secret weapon” and implied that she would be the reason Democrats will lose, stating:
Nancy Pelosi — what she’s doing to this country — and she’s gone so far left, and Schumer’s gone so far left — I look forward to running against them.”
But what Nancy Pelosi accomplished today proves that Trump and his cronies have their work cut out for them and we can’t wait to watch them crumble.
