GOP Congresswoman Drops The Hammer On Pelosi, House Dems, After Lackluster Election

Published

Republican Congresswoman-elect Lisa McClain of Michigan wasted no time in dropping the hammer on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and other House Democrats after a rather lackluster showing during the election last week, stating that she needs to reevaluate her role and the direction of the Democratic Party as a whole.

“I think Nancy Pelosi is going to do what Nancy Pelosi wants,” McClain said during an interview with “Fox & Friends.”

“I think Nancy Pelosi is a very strong leader and has her agendas and one of the most important things I think you need to be able to do as a leader is pause, take a step back, self-reflect that this isn’t about you, this is about your constituents,” she continued.

With Republicans adding House seats in the 2020 election, House Minority Leader Rep. Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., told “Sunday Morning Futures” that it would only take 10 Democrats to block Nancy Pelosi from being reelected as House speaker.

McCarthy made the comments after his party flipped at least seven seats from blue to red and an eighth seat in Michigan that was most recently occupied by a Libertarian.

Pelosi has announced her bid for reelection as speaker, but McCarthy said that is not a sure thing with the slimmer Democratic majority.

“To become speaker, you have to have 218 votes on the floor,” McCarthy said. “When she went up for that vote two years ago, there were 15 Democrats who voted against her. Ten of those Democrats will be coming back to Congress. If those 10 vote against her again, she will not be speaker of the House … because of the gains of the Republicans.”

“We are close enough now that we can control the floor with a few Democrats joining with us,” he added.

Pelosi, of course, defended the results of the 2020 election by saying that Democrats “lost some battles, but we won the war.” This is an obvious jab taken at President Trump who, according to mainstream media outlets, has won the White House.

Keep in mind there are many lawsuits still outstanding that tell a very different story.

McClain went on to suggest that the Democratic Party needs to think about moving their platform more toward the center instead of being so radically left-wing, noting this election is a rejection of far left policy.

“If they are good politicians, which I believe they are, they’re going to [say] maybe we need to get back to the middle a little bit if we want to get anything done because, clearly, America has spoken on their radical agenda,” McClain said.

Mitch McConnell famously stalled Merrick Garland’s confirmation to the Supreme Court to replace Antonin Scalia during the final year of Barack Obama’s presidency. The gig eventually went to Neil Gorsuch. Now, Garland is set to become attorney general in Joe Biden’s Department of Justice, with great support from…McConnell. From The Hill: Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) told Politico Tuesday he will back Merrick Garland’s nomination for attorney general. Asked by the publication whether he supported Garland’s nomination, the minority leader replied “I do.” However, the outlet reported that the senator did not elaborate further on his reasoning for the decision.

Press Sec Defends Detainment of Minors at the Border, But Liberals Slammed Trump For It

Funny how that works.

You either have to be very smart to be this stupid, or just…very stupid. When it comes to Jen Psaki and Joe Biden, which is more likely? Anyway, here’s the White House press secretary now pretty much defending “kids in cages” – which, of course, developed during the Obama administration (and is something that President Trump was lambasted over). From Fox News: White House press secretary Jen Psaki on Tuesday defended the reopening of a migrant facility at the border for children under the Biden administration, saying it is a “temporary reopening” amid the COVID-19 pandemic as she was pressed on the president’s past comments during the Trump administration on such facilities. Psaki was asked by Fox News why the Biden administration was reopening a facility for migrant children in Texas — considering President Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris’ history railing against facilities for migrant children while Donald Trump was president. She replied that their policy is “not to expel unaccompanied children who arrive at the border.” CONTINUED: “The process, how it works, is that Customs and Border control continue to transfer unaccompanied children to the HHS office of Refugee Resettlement,” Psaki explained, adding that “can take a couple of days.” Psaki said that due to COVID-19 protocols, the social distancing requirements and capacity limits at Refugee Resettlement Shelters have “been significantly reduced, because, of course, you can’t have a child in every bed.” VIDEO: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k-b-IMwCuA0&feature=emb_title
