While the Mainstream Media freaks out over the fact that Donald Trump rushed out of a meeting with Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer an article from The Hill in 2011 showcased Obama doing the exact same thing.
Republicans said tense negotiations over raising the $14.3 trillion debt limit at the White House ended when President Obama stormed out of the meeting with a stern warning to House Majority LeaderÂ Eric CantorÂ (R-Va.): â€œDonâ€™t call my bluff.â€
â€œIt ended with the president abruptly walking out of the meeting,â€ Cantor told reporters Wednesday upon returning to the Capitol.
Democrats immediately disputed the GOP account, saying Obama had sought to end the meeting when Cantor interrupted him to get a final word.
â€œNo. Absolutely not,â€ House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) told The Hill in a brief interview when asked whether the president had acted as Cantor had described.
A Democratic source familiar with the negotiations said the reports of a dramatic or abrupt walk-out by Obama were overblown, but the source acknowledged that the president â€œsaid what he was going to say, got up and walked out.â€
â€œThe climax of the meeting was the president basically saying â€˜Whatâ€™s happening in this room confirms what everybody across the country thinks about Washington, D.C.,â€™â€ the official said. â€œWhich is that people are more interested in protecting their base and political positioning than solving problems.â€
