Trish Regan Calls Out Pelosi for 'Crumbs' Remark: 'What World Do You Live On?'
On "The Intelligence Report" on Fox Business Network, Regan pointed out that the average American makes $55,000 a year and company bonuses have ranged from $1,000 to $2,000.

"What world do you live on?!!" she asked.
"In terms of the bonus that corporate America receives versus the crumbs they are giving to workers to put the schmooze on is so pathetic,” Pelosi said last month.
Earlier this week, she described the tax cuts as "unpatriotic" and doing a "grave disservice to our country."
Speaking in West Virginia a few weeks ago, President Trump called out Pelosi specifically for the "crumbs" comment, comparing it to Hillary Clinton's "deplorables" insult toward his supporters in 2016.
"People are getting 1,000, 2,000, 3,000 dollars. That's not crumbs. That's a lot of money," he said.
Scott Bolden of the National Bar Association PAC responded to Regan by saying the bonuses are a "short-term political fix" and said Republicans will need to deal with deficits that arise from the tax cuts.
"Barack Obama got us here [to economic growth]," he claimed.
Regan countered that Democrats never cared about deficits previously "as long as you were taking people's money and filtering it around to everyone else."
"Go read an economics textbook! ... President Obama did nothing," she said.
