Pelosi: 'Five White Guys' Leading DACA Talks Should Open a 'Hamburger Stand'

Pelosi's No. 2 in the House took issue with her comments. "Are they going to open a hamburger stand or what?"

"The five white guys I call them, you know", Pelosi quipped, complaining that there were not enough minorities involved in the immigration debate. "That same firm just told the employees they were going to be laying off 1,500 people and if they wanted to save their jobs, they could all start working 32 hours", she said.

Democratic Whip Steny Hoyer of Maryland blasted his colleague, labeling her remark as "offensive".

'That comment is offensive. "They've been working on it in a bipartisan way for a long time", Pelosi said. "It's not a question of who's there, but who's not there".

"Leader Pelosi has every confidence in the leadership of Whip Hoyer and Sen".

Pelosi was concerned that no minority members of Congress were included in the meeting.

Is it still Christmas? 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".

The comments have been eclipsed however after President Trump was forced to deny on Friday that he didn't want the U.S. receiving immigrants from "s***hole countries" in the Caribbean and Africa. Besides, it's only white males she's criticizing - an easy target whose complaints about being singled out by their race can easily be shot down by simply calling them racists.

Ryan touted the positive effects of Republicans' tax reform legislation to C-SPAN's Steve Scully, who then brought up Pelosi's criticism that any benefits workers have seen are mere "crumbs".

National political analysts have continually listed Culberson as one of the three most endangered Republican incumbents in Texas heading into the 2018 election cycle. Why it would matter beyond Democrats once again playing the race card is unclear.
