Apparently there was a bipartisan meeting with Trump a few minutes ago where Trump insulted Nancy Pelosi and Democrats got up and walked out of the meeting. Schumer describes what happened:

Skip to 6:45 in this video where Schumer clarifies that Trump said that some of ISIS were communists and they would be happy with that:
BREAKING: Pelosi storms out of meeting with President Trump
Schumer: "When he started calling Speaker Pelosi a third-rate politician.."
Pelosi: "Which, I said, 'I wish you were a politician, Mr. President, then you would know the art of the possible.'

Ok that’s hilarious. I would love to have video of this so I could see Pelosi and Schumer’s face when Trump called her a “third rate politician” and a commie. But hey, if the commie shoe fits, then by all means put it on and walk out of the meeting!
As you can clearly see in the video, I don’t think Pelosi was as upset as Schumer was at the insults. She can barely contain her laughter.
According to McCarthy, Pelosi said somethings that were pretty ‘unbecoming’ of her own. But he says when Pelosi left the meeting, it suddenly became far more productive:
Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy says when Pelosi and Schumer left, "we had a very good, productive meeting."
