(Tea Party PAC) – One thing the left doesn’t seem to get about President Trump is that while he is a master troll who doesn’t take crap from anyone and has no problem issuing scathing rebukes of his critics without batting an eye, he’s not a mean guy.
He’s just a straightforward guy.
He’s actually pretty decent, classy, and kind, and this is perhaps what the mainstream media hates the most about him.
After Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) was briefly hospitalized after fainting at an event in Manhattan in May, the President picked up the phone and gave one of his toughest political adversaries in Washington a call.
That’s right–the president called the man who has routinely been trying to find evidence of a crime that Trump has not committed to let him know he hopes he feels better.
Yahoo News reported that on May 24th, Nadler, chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, which he has been using almost exclusively to try to get the president impeached, began to feel woozy and slumped forward in his chair.
Nadler, 71, was treated by medical technicians before being taken to Lenox Hill Hospital, where he spent the night.
Nadler’s staff later said that the lawmaker had suffered from dehydration and that he did not have any serious medical issues. His visit to the hospital was “just a precaution,” one Nadler staffer told Yahoo News.
While in the hospital, Nadler must have been very surprised to receive a call from Trump.
Nonetheless, the animosity was “put aside at least momentarily, in favor of more human considerations, according to several people familiar with the contents of the call,” Yahoo reported.
“A member of Nadler’s staff who would only speak on the condition of anonymity said Trump called Nadler from Air Force One as he was on his way to Japan.”
Trump, a fellow New Yorker, has been butting heads with Nadler for decades, dating back to the 1980’s when, as a real estate developer, sought approval for a major project on Manhattan’s West Side, which Nadler represents in Congress.
Trump now told Nadler that he had seen him on television, and that he thought Nadler was “tough.” Trump repeated that assessment several times, adding that he wished the congressman well and wanted to know if he could do anything more. The two men did not discuss politics or impeachment, according to a person familiar with the call.
The White House declined to comment on the record, but the seeming warmth of the conversation — however brief — contrasts sharply with what Trump has said of Nadler previously. In a meeting with Republicans this spring, Trump reportedly called Nadler, who underwent weight-loss surgery years ago, “Fat Jerry.”
Trump had referenced Nadler in nearly 20 tweets in the months before Nadler’s medical scare, but has not mentioned him in his Twitter messages since. Any good feeling between the two antagonists, however, is likely to be short-lived, as the House Judiciary Committee continues to pursue Trump. On Monday, the Nadler-led committee will hold a hearing titled “Lessons From the Mueller Report: Presidential Obstruction and Other Crimes,” and will call on Watergate defendant John Dean, whose testimony was crucial to the eventual resignation of President Richard Nixon.
