If there wasn’t enough salt in Nancy Pelosi’s wounds after the Toronto Raptors defeated her Golden State Warriors for this year’s NBA championship, she can just steal some from the pistachios she gifted Justin Trudeau. Oh wait, never mind — those are salt-free.
The Speaker held up her end of a “friendly” wager with the Canadian prime minister Thursday when she gave him the basket of all baskets, chock-full of some of California’s finest:
Trudeau, being the diplomat he is, returned the favor. “I put together a little Raptors swag — I don’t expect you to wear it,” he quipped handing her a gift box with Raptors flags and a 2019 Championship T-shirt. (I suspect he tried putting Drake in the box, but alas, he was too big.)
If I was Pelosi, I’d keep a bottle of wine (or two) for myself and call it a day.
