House Speaker Nancy Pelosi began her weekly press conference this morning by paying tribute to the late Elijah Cummings. The bill lowering prescription drug prices will be re-named in his honor.

Asked about the now-famous picture of her standing up to Trump (which is now her Twitter header because she's the boss), she said she was probably at that moment telling Trump that "all roads with you lead to Putin" when it comes to Trump's so-called 'foreign policy.'

Then one reporter decided to read a Mitch McConnell statement and pretend it was a question.
