A few hours later, Nancy Pelosi addressed the media on Capitol Hill. She was wearing the same lapel pin she wore during the State of the Union earlier in the week. The pin appears to be a replica of the Mace of the Republic, a symbol of law and order and the restoration of order. (Read more about the symbolism here.) With such significant symbolism front and center, Pelosi fielded a question about Trump’s claims of “unlimited presidential harassment” and once again, she nailed the response, using the P-word—P-R-O-J-E-C-T-I-O-N.
