Nancy Pelosi Doesn’t Know the Definition of Manhood

In her caustic remarks after meeting with President Trump, Nancy Pelosi tried degrading the President’s insistence on building a wall by calling it “a manhood thing – as if manhood can be associated with him.” 

In my view, President Trump exemplifies precisely what manhood is all about.  It is about protecting the people you are responsible to protect, be they your wife and children, family, or, in the case of the President, the people of the United States.

In the world of Nancy Pelosi and other liberals, manhood has been defined down as doing that which sends feel-good virtue-signaling and makes the person appear sweet and compassionate.  But that is not manhood, rather self-righteousness and throwing off responsibility under false platitudes. We had enough of that with Barack Obama.

Mrs. Pelosi talked about her being “the mom in the room” and, later, about “tinkling.”  This country is not served well by her definitions of manhood, nor of motherhood, and certainly is above her base references to “tinkling.” We don’t need her to rain on our parade.
