The biggest complaint that the enthusiastic, young end of the Democratic Party has long held is that their leadership is out of touch.
There’s no denying it: These are septuagenarians in high places attempting to “serve” the TikTok generation’s needs and it simply isn’t working.
For example, the latest absurdly ignorant suggestions by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi fly in the face of what the progressive posse within the party has been saying for months.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said Sunday on ABC’s “This Week” that she fully supports President Joe Biden should he run for reelection in 2024.
Anchor George Stephanopoulos asked, “Do you think President Biden should run again?”Trending:
Pelosi said, “Yes, I do. President Biden has been a great president for our country. He has accomplished so much. Over 10 million jobs under his leadership, working with the private sector, of course. He has just done so many things that are so great we would need a lot more show to talk about it. He’s put money in people’s pockets, vaccines in their arms, children back to school, people back to work, for starters, creating 10 million jobs. He’s made America independent by passing the CHIPS bill, that says we’re no longer reliant on those who withhold products that enable us to manufacture in our country.”
And then, in an obtuse and simply negligent statement:
Pelosi added, “He has been a great president. He has a great record to run on.”
Of course, Pelosi is ignoring Biden’s historically awful approval ratings and the chorus of Democrats who’ve been demanding Biden abstain from running again in 2024.
