NANCY’S CAKE GETS MOLDY

NANCY’S CAKE GETS MOLDY

 

I expected that an experienced grandmother of nine grandchildren, as Nancy Pelosi is, would know that she can enjoy eating her cake but she can’t keep it whole at the same time. Because - the cake – Nancy’s cake - gets moldy by the day.


Her cake gets oldie and moldy every day.   
The impeachment peaches over the cake get moldier with every hour that passes.


The proverb literally means "you cannot simultaneously retain your cake and eat it".  Once the cake is eaten, it is gone. It means that one cannot have two incompatible things, or that no one should try to have more than is reasonable.

 

The phrase you can't have your cake and eat it too means that there are two options open to Nancy:
She can enjoy an impeachment trial in the Senate, or she can fold the tent and go chill elsewhere.

She can't have both because the two options conflict with each other, so she can only pick one.  

 

Nancy’s Show is getting stale by the day.  The Box Office proceeds are dwindling.  Her political dividends are shrinking. Actually she’s living off her political savings account.

 

Nancy’s favorite print media outlet - The New York Times analyzed her dilemma eight years ago.  A very good piece of academic linguistic analysis:
