President Donald Trump put his impeccable trolling skills on full display this morning with a plea for Democrats to keep Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer around.
“I certainly hope the Democrats do not force Nancy P out,” he tweeted. “That would be very bad for the Republican Party – and please let Cryin’ Chuck stay!”

And just like that, all the verified liberals exploded.
Why don't you worry about yourself being forced out, Mr. Getting Investigated By The FBI?

I honestly can't believe you're the president and you still say things like "Cryin' Chuck" about a US Senator.

What are we being distracted from today?

You are tweeting way too much this morning.

Only real men allow themselves to cry. Only cowards taunt them for it.

There we go with the name-calling again. Are you the POTUS or just an 11-year-old bullying someone in the playground?

If Schumer is Cryin' Chuck, what does that make you? Delinquent Donny?

We're clearly being distracted from something.

I'm looking forward to the day both parties force you out.

Your lack of vocabulary is embarrassing.

Sarcasm does not suit you well, Mr. President.

Trump’s plea for Nancy Pelosi to remain in her position as House Minority Leader was made in reference to calls for her resignation as the Democratic Party continues to struggle.
As Fox News reports, Pelosi is “increasingly becoming the face of a period of Democratic stagnation that’s seen a once-mighty majority systematically deteriorate during her tenure.”
Indeed, as Rep. Filemon Vela (D-Tex) told POLITICO, “I think you’d have to be an idiot to think we could win the House with Pelosi at the top.”
Further, CNN quotes Rep. Kathleen Rice (D-NY) as stating, “we need leadership change. It’s time for Nancy Pelosi to go, and the entire leadership team.”
“This is about being able to take the Democratic party in a direction that is actually going to help us win seats and get back into the majority. We need a vision — where are we going? And we need a message — how are we going to get there? We don’t have either one of those. We just don’t have either one of those in the present leadership.”
Democrats recently faced yet another crushing special election defeat when Georgian Jon Ossoff, despite raising millions of dollars and earning the support of Hollywood’s elite, failed to defeat Republican Karen Handel.
Even Cher turned on Pelosi following the loss.

Trump’s “Cryin’ Chuck” remark appears to have originated last month when he roasted the New York senator for changing his stance on Comey after Trump fired the former FBI Director.
Cryin' Chuck Schumer stated recently, "I do not have confidence in him (James Comey) any longer." Then acts so indignant. #draintheswamp
