Donald Trump released the following photo just after a heated meeting in the White House with the Speaker of House.
Trump posted with intent to reveal how “unhinged” Nancy Pelosi is but on the 1000th day of his presidency, it may say something else in regards to his time in office.
Right after Trump released the photo, Pelosi then made it her cover photo on Twitter. To most of the world — it was not a photo of someone unhinged. But instead, a photo of someone doing something that most do not to Trump: which is calling him out both physically and metaphorically.
MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell believes the photo will be remembered for centuries to come, saying:
“I never saw anyone in that room do what Nancy Pelosi did today when she literally stood up to the president of the United States and because Donald Trump has the weakest mind in the history of the American presidency, he released the photograph of that moment captured perfectly by a White House photographer. We would not have that photograph if Donald Trump had not made the profoundly stupid mistake of tweeting it. And that photograph, thanks to Donald Trump, will now become the single-most-important and indelible photographic image of the Trump presidency. It tells the story of the Trump presidency better than any other photograph. Nancy Pelosi immediately placed that photograph on her Twitter page and she will never replace it with a better photograph. It is the perfect portrait of the child president, Trump’s face is full of the confusion and fear of a 4-year-old boy being rebuked by an adult, in the room full of adults who know he shouldn’t be there.”
He continued on, saying:
“50 years from now, schoolchildren studying American history will come upon this photograph and they will instantly know who was in charge in that room. The adult standing and pointing at the pained face across the table. Historians will recognize that when Nancy Pelosi stood up to that president today, she wasn’t just standing up for herself and for congress. She was standing up for the millions of Americans and millions of people around the world.”
Snaps for that!
