Pelosi's 'five white guys' joke not well received by peer

Nancy Pelosi says companies' bonuses to workers because of the tax bill are 'crumbs'

Hoyer, one of the Democrat white males Pelosi referred to, objected to her comment in a statement released afterward.

Pelosi is scheduled to be the keynote speaker at a Harris County Democratic Party's annual fundraising dinner on February 18.

Pelosi's spokesman, Drew Hammill, tried to show a more united front by saying that Pelosi was not criticizing members of her party involved with the immigration talks, Politico reported. Clinton won 48.5 percent of the vote in the 7th District versus 47.1 percent for Trump.

Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) mocked the racial makeup of the meeting between Republicans and Democrats because they were "five white guys", which earned a rebuke from one of the attendees.

Three of the "white guys" are Republicans - Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn of Texas, House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy of California and White House chief of staff John Kelly. "It's so pathetic", Pelosi said during a press briefing on Thursday. "Are they going to open a hamburger stand next or what?" she said.

A spokeswoman for BuzzFeed responded to Cohen's lawsuit by defending its controversial decision to publish the dossier. Michael Cohen said in a Twitter post on Tuesday, calling the dossier "fake".

"That comment is offensive".

"The five white guys I call them, you know", Pelosi said, referring to five bipartisan lawmakers, including Hoyer, leading efforts to salvage the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.

"That could've been done four months ago". "It's not a question of who's there but who's not there".

'The sensitivity even on the wording is really important [and] for people who are engaged in these issues to be there at the table. Today, in answer to a reporter's question about the growing number of companies giving bonuses to their workforce because of the tax bill, said that the bonuses were "insignificant crumbs".

Pelosi also suggested that the five are attempting to delay a deal given that their talks were held separately from those of a bipartisan group of six senators whose compromise proposal Trump rejected Thursday.
