Speaker Pelosi drove Trump bonkers, and then followed it up by owning Kellyanne Conway when she tried to get in the way.
Josh Dawsey of The Washington Post reported:
After Trump abruptly left legislative leaders meeting today, Kellyanne Conway asked Pelosi if she wanted to respond to what Trump had said. "I'll respond to the president, not staff," Pelosi said. "Wow, that's really pro-woman of you," Kellyanne Conway said back, per aides.

Kellyanne Conway pulled her usual stunt of pretending like she is more important than she really is, and Nancy Pelosi smacked her down. Pelosi isn’t just the highest-ranking elected Democrat in the entire country, she is also a political force of nature who gets to Trump like no one else. People have no idea what Kellyanne Conway does in the Trump administration, but she decided to get in Nancy Pelosi’s way, and she got steamrolled.
