Incoming House Speaker Nancy Pelosi hilariously says Donald Trump’s wall has been reduced from a cement wall to a “beaded curtain or something.”
During an interview with USA Today, Pelosi accused Trump of using “scare tactics” over the border wall. She mocked Trump’s changing message about whether he wanted a wall or a fence.
USA Today: “He talked about terrorists coming in over that particular border, which wasn’t so. He talked about people bringing in diseases and all the rest of that, which wasn’t so,” said Pelosi, D-Calif., who is likely to become speaker after Democrats take over the House of Representatives next month. “He’s using scare tactics that are not evidence-based, and it’s wrong.”
“First of all, the fact … that he says, ‘We’re going to build a wall with cement, and Mexico’s going to pay for it’ while he’s already backed off of the cement – now he’s down to, I think, a beaded curtain or something, I’m not sure where he is,” Pelosi said.
Pelosi’s comments come after Trump whined on Christmas Day that “what’s happening in our country is a disgrace.” He also claimed that many, many federal workers told him that they want the government to remain shutdown until he gets the wall. Of course, that’s a lie.
Twitter’s reaction to Nancy Pelosi’s “beaded curtain” comments was priceless:

trump should never have fought with Nancy Pelosi. Today. He said “he started with a big cement wall, now he’s down to a beaded curtain or something”. Worse day of his miserable life is Nancy Pelosi taking over the House. Taken down by a woman. Sweet Justice

Sweet Jesus I love her and I’d really kind of like a 1600 mile beaded curtain.
