Nancy Pelosi has repeatedly dismissed the financial benefits of the tax reform plan as mere crumbs. During an event in West Virginia this week, Trump had some fun at Pelosi’s expense, comparing her comment to Hillary’s remarks about deplorables.
The Washington Free Beacon reports:
Trump Compares Pelosi’s ‘Crumbs’ Criticism of Bonuses to Clinton’s ‘Deplorables’ Remark
Addressing congressional Republicans in West Virginia, Trump touted the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act—which passed with no Democratic votes in Congress—that he signed last month. Hundreds of companies have announced wage hikes and four-figure bonuses in response to the overhaul, which included a dramatic slashing of the corporate tax rate.
Pelosi has been one of the tax law’s strongest critics, however, calling it “Armageddon” and repeatedly dismissing the bonuses as “crumbs” for workers.
Trump said he had just been told by a man that he had $221 more in his latest paycheck, which the president said was a result of the new tax law that also cut individual rates.
“Then we got hit with these corporations giving tremendous bonuses to everybody that Nancy Pelosi called crumbs. That was a bad—that could be like deplorable—does that make sense?” Trump asked. “Deplorable and crumbs? Those two words, they seem to have a resemblance. I hope it has the same meaning.”

Hilarious! Nancy Pelosi will never live those comments down.
