Coronavirus has now killed 2,200 Americans and another 125,000 have contracted the virus, making the United States the country with more cases of COVID-19 than any other, which is most definitely a dubious distinction.
You would think that President Donald Trump would want to meet with leaders from both parties to discuss possible measures that might mitigate further financial fallout from coronavirus, but instead he’s only taking meetings with Republicans, even though Democrats control the House of Representatives, which is where all spending bills must originate.
More specifically, Trump is refusing to meet with Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), and it’s reportedly because he’s still hurt that she dared to impeach him, according to MSNBC:

Did you get that? A grown man is too personally wounded by impeachment to meet with the most important member of the House, which Trump will need if he’s going to get any legislation passed.
What did Trump do instead of meeting with Speaker Pelosi? He sent Secretary of the Treasury Steven Mnuchin to speak with her because the President of the United States is too much of a wimp to meet with a woman who called him out for his high crimes and misdemeanors.
This isn’t the first time in recent days that Trump has acted like a spoiled toddler and refused to participate in a function that would have put him in contact with Pelosi. He also refused to attend the annual St. Patrick’s Day lunch that will be held on Capitol Hill Thursday. Trump even had a White House spokesperson announce that the president would not be in attendance because the Speaker chose “to tear this Nation apart with her actions and her rhetoric” during impeachment.
Boo freaking hoo! What a whiny little baby we have as a president. He cannot even sit in the same room with someone he disagrees with because he’s still too insulted for being held accountable for his Ukraine scandal.
Ladies and gentlemen, we do not have a Commander-in-Chief. Instead, we have a Whiner-in-Chief.
