Pelosi Just Got Worst News of Her Political Career, & Conservatives Are Smiling

Linkedin Share

After Democrats gained control of the House of Representatives, President Trump sent a tweet advocating for Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) as Speaker of the House.

Was he kidding?

He says he was serious.

But now, Pelosi is getting the worst news of her career.

In fact, she may not have the votes from members of her party to become Speaker.

From Fox News:

The revolt inside the Democratic Party against Nancy Pelosi’s return to the House speakership is gaining momentum with a growing number of Democrats signing a letter pledging not to support the California Democrat for speaker.

[…]

Fox News has confirmed at least 17 House Democrats, including incumbents and incoming members, have signed on to a document saying they will not support Pelosi on the House floor for speaker. A Democrat familiar with the effort says they are trying to add more names before the letter is publicly released.

If all those Democrats vote against Pelosi on the floor, Pelosi would not have the votes for speaker. To get the gavel, Pelosi will first need to pick up a majority of the Democratic Caucus in internal leadership elections, then go on to win an absolute majority of the House.

If Pelosi does, once again, become Speaker, a report says she plans to groom California Rep. Adam Schiff to be her successor.

She also promised a short-lived run in her second stint, before handing over the gavel.

From Breitbart:

The Los Angeles Times reported Friday that House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), who intends to become Speaker of the House if Democrats win the November midterm elections, “has quietly been grooming potential successors, among them Rep. Adam Schiff.”

Pelosi supports “collateral damage” against conservatives if Democrats retake Congress.

Those are her words.

From Daily Wire:

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi endorsed “collateral damage” against Americans who do not share the views of the Democratic Party during an interview over the weekend with left-wing New York Times columnist Paul Krugman.

WATCH:

Democrats needed to win 23 seats on election day to take back the House.

They got a few more than that.

Items on the agenda?

Legalizing DREAMers and strengthening background checks on guns (meaning, a form of gun control).

From Newsmax:

Lowering health care costs, rebuilding infrastructure and running the House chamber with more transparency and openness are near the top of the Democratic agenda, Pelosi said during a talk Tuesday at Harvard’s Institute of Politics. Democrats would also prioritize giving legal status to young immigrants, known as Dreamers, and strengthening background checks on gun purchases, she said.

Pelosi noted that as long as Trump is president she’s not leaving office.

She even thanked race-baiting Rev. Al Sharpton for “saving America.”

Yes.

For real.

“Thank you, thank you for helping take back America.”

“Uh, people are call— all over the place are calling me, writing, airports here and there— thank you for saving America.”

“I give those thanks to you.”

“Thank you for saving America. Reverend Sharpton, thank you for saving America!”

WATCH:

This is like saying Hillary Clinton made America great again.

Facepalm.

According to Pelosi, all Republicans are “despicable.”
