So…let me get this straight.
When TIME Magazine used the picture of a young Honduran girl who was not actually separated from her mother at the border as the photoshopped subject of a cruel stare-down from President Donald “Literally Hitler” Trump, liberals barely batted an eye when it was revealed that she was safe and sound with her mother.
But when TIME Magazine features Nancy Pelosi, former Speaker of the House and current House Minority Leader, on their cover with a clearly glowing profile piece, the left is upset because it took too long?!
You never can please these people. It’s clearly impossible. I’m not sure if they got spoiled on Obama’s rhetoric or have been driven fully insane by Trump, but they will never, ever be happy.
Remarkable…. today Nancy Pelosi, with her decade-plus in leadership, has scored her first ever Time cover pic.twitter.com/2Aivyqr4Vf

Believe it or not, this marks the first time @NancyPelosi has ever made the cover of a major national newsmagazine. Never happened when she was the first woman speaker. pic.twitter.com/jisG3uBv9T

That it has taken this long for Nancy Pelosi to be put on the cover of Time Magazine says something about the resistance that women in politics still face in having their achievements recognized, writes @ktumulty: https://t.co/h5BibYEYyK

Pelosi herself has apparently already whined that she hadn’t yet been validated by TIME:

What is so special about a TIME cover, anyway? And could it be, perhaps, that Pelosi hasn’t been selected yet for the coveted feature piece because she’s, oh I don’t know, Nancy Pelosi, a highly alienating political figure and a general goofball?
This is what the Daily Wire points out:
When even President Trump wants Pelosi to stay on board, Democrats should know they need to find a new leader. Fortunately, they haven’t, and now she has a profile in Time magazine, which begins in the most Nancy Pelosi of ways as she comments on why she prefers ice cream on a cold winter’s morning.Advertisement - story continues below
“Nancy Pelosi stopped caring about what people think of her a long time ago, so she has no qualms about eating ice cream for breakfast with a stranger,” reads the first sentence. “Dark chocolate, two scoops, waffle cone.”
It was a freezing January morning in New York.
“You know what’s good about ice cream in this weather?” Pelosi reportedly said. “It doesn’t melt down your arm while you’re eating it.”
