Self-Proclaimed "Master Legislator" Pelosi Blasts Trump Executive Orders As 'Unconstitutional Slop'

Judging by the overheated reaction to President Trump's signing of four executive orders to provide economic relief to Americans it is clear that Nancy Pelosi gambled and lost big.
On Saturday, Trump wiped away the smug smirk on Pelosi's face with the stroke of his pen by overriding her obstruction of a coronavirus stimulus package unless it includes bailouts for Democrat-controlled states facing a financial crisis.
The spiteful speaker wailed that the executive orders were unconstitutional (a practice that never bothered her when Obama was in the White House) and demanded that the Republicans get back to the negotiating table.
A punked Pelosi vented her spleen in two post-signing Tweets after the POTUS freed Americans from her hostage-taking.
"Today’s meager announcements show President Trump still does not comprehend the seriousness or the urgency of the health and economic crises facing working families. These policies provide little real help for families."
The self-proclaimed "master legislator" also called for Republicans to help her save face after President Trump followed through on his commitment to help those who the elitist Pelosi couldn't give a damn about.
"Democrats repeat our call to Republicans to return to the table, meet us halfway and work together to deliver immediate relief to the American people."
Pelosi then turned to the media which serves as the winged monkeys for the Democratic party, taking her tired act to "Fox News Sunday" with Trump antagonist Chris Wallace.
Via The Hill, "Pelosi: Trump executive actions 'are illusions'":
“What the president did is unconstitutional slop,” Pelosi said on “Fox News Sunday,” adding that rather than effectively getting more money to the unemployed and halting evictions, “these are illusions.”
Host Chris Wallace countered that Trump made the announcement amid an extended impasse over the next round of coronavirus relief in Congress.
“Having no bill at all, not coming to any agreement wasn’t going to provide any of that either,” he said.
Pelosi defended Democratic leaders’ efforts in negotiations, saying they had offered compromises.
“What the president does doesn’t even accomplish anything he sets out to do in the categories he did, but we said to [Republicans], we’ll come down a trillion [dollars], you come up a trillion [dollars] and we’ll be able to have an agreement that meets the needs of the American people,” she said.
“We have to reach an agreement, children are food insecure, families are at the risk of being evicted, the virus is moving like a freight train,” Pelosi added. “The kindest thing I could say he doesn’t know what he’s talking about, or something’s wrong there, something’s very, very wrong.”
Pelosi added that to characterize the proposed executive actions, which reportedly include a smaller temporary federal unemployment benefits and a nationwide payroll tax cut, “as even accomplishing what they set out to do, something that would take the place of an agreement, is just not so.”
Pelosi's histrionics and invoking of the derogatory term "slop" to describe President Trump's executive orders are yet another example of her unfitness for any serious political office let alone one as powerful as Speaker Of The House.
It is also brutally clear that Trump has taken up residence inside of her head where he has lived rent-free for years and now has smashed whatever furniture remained intact.
