Nancy Pelosi gave a speech on the House floor on Wednesday where she suggested that Donald Trump acts like a mobster.
“The president of the United States, in using appropriated funds enacted in a bipartisan way by this Congress, funds that were meant to help the Ukraine fight the Russians — the president considered that his private ATM machine, I guess,” Pelosi said. “And said he could say to the president [of Ukraine], he could make — ‘do me a favor.’”
“Do me a favor? Do you paint houses too? What is this?” Pelosi wondered. “Do me a favor?”
Pelosi used quotes from the new hit Martin Scorsese film on Netflix, “The Irishman,” which has popularized the term “painting houses”
The term refers to murder, with the paint referring to blood splattered on the walls when the victim was shot at close range.
