Editor’s Note: This article was updated to clarify the difference between the coronavirus bill and the combined omnibus spending bill.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has said she wants to pull President Trump out of the White House “by his hair, his little hands and feet.”
According to Politico, Pelosi made the remarks about the President on the weekend, during strategy talks regarding how the Democrats can pass the new 5,000+ page coronavirus relief bill that is currently going through Congress.
Pelosi: “I’m Counting Down The Hours ‘Til He’s Gone”
“I’m counting down the hours ’til he’s gone,” Pelosi told her leadership team during a strategizing session saying that she plans to pull Trump out of the White House “by his hair, his little hands and his feet.”
President Trump and Nancy Pelosi haven’t spoken since October last year, when she tried to get him out of the White House for the first time.
That was when she helped launch the impeachment effort against him, and ripped up his State of the Union speech live on television.
A Challenge For Pelosi Within Her Own Party?
Pelosi has been having a tough year.
It seems that time may be running out for Pelosi with her position as Speaker coming under fire by many, including Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who told The Intercept that they need “new leadership in the Democratic Party.”

Pelosi, a proponent of many stringent coronavirus measures, was caught out earlier in the year attending a hair salon in San Francisco, inside, without a mask, in what many decried as a stunning display of hypocrisy.
She later preposterously claimed that she had been “set up” by the salon.

The House Speaker in October also claimed that CNN, of all networks, serve as “apologists” and propagandists for the Republican Party, in a stunning display of a lack of self-awareness.
Here's the video of the above exchange. On top of everything, it's kind of hilarious that Pelosi claims that CNN — **CNN** — serve as apologists and propagandists for the Republicans.pic.twitter.com/IU8oVCRJSN

Bill Slammed For Including Unnecessary Funding
The coronavirus stimulus bill that Pelosi is trying to pass has come under fire from many across the political spectrum.
Conservatives have pointed out that the attached omnibus spending bill, funding the government, is packed chock full of foreign aid projects, while Americans line up for free food.
$10 million will go to fund “gender programs” in Pakistan, Sudan will received $700 million in economic assistance, and $453 million will be provided for assistance for Ukraine.
Similar ridiculous priorities include a condemnation of the CCP’s involvement in the selection of the next Dalai Lama, the building of two new museums for Latinos and women on the National Mall, and a ban on e-cigarettes being delivered by the USPS.
I predict the day our country’s finances collapse, we will still be funding “gender programs in Pakistan.” Tonight’s COVID relief/stimulus bill has no less than $10 million for said programs attached to it. pic.twitter.com/0WMTeckdBN

While the rest of the world gets billions of dollars, Americans will only receive $600.
Democrat Senate candidate Jon Ossoff called the payments “a joke,” in another display of serious cracks forming between Democrat leadership and the rest of the party.
