So much for House Democrats distancing themselves from that dummy Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and the rest of the Hate Squad. Thanks to President Trump hanging these radicals around Nancy Pelosi’s neck like a millstone, the Speaker of the House had no choice but to ally herself with them.
Today, Congresswoman @RepAOC and I sat down to discuss working together to meet the needs of our districts and our country, fairness in our economy and diversity in our country. pic.twitter.com/eVp1LS0Gpw— Nancy Pelosi (@SpeakerPelosi) July 26, 2019
“Fairness in our economy and diversity in our country.”
Yeah, those are the things American voters are really clamoring for.
But who here is the actual dummy? AOC or Nancy Pelosi?
Well, given how easily President Trump turned the tables on her, I’m thinking Nancy’s the dummy.
And the dummy got played.
The majority of Americans object the radical agenda of the Hate Squad. And Nancy has become their willing puppet.
We all knew this was coming.
Julie Kelly said way back in January that, despite all the heaping praise from the media over “powerful” Nancy Pelosi, the shadow Speaker of the House is actually AOC.
Even though the wealthy, septuagenarian from San Francisco now wields the speaker’s gavel, it is the bartender-turned-representative Millennial from the Bronx who possesses the power. Ocasio-Cortez essentially is this Congress’s shadow speaker, agitating the Democrats’ policy agenda and creating her own caucus of diverse, radical soulmates. Further, she is the poster girl for a left-lurching Democratic Party.
Sure, Nancy tried to create some distance and advance the narrative that AOC and her coterie of radical Marxist Sisters were inconsequential.
But it was all for political self-preservation.
Two weeks ago when President Trump launched his tweetstorm against the Hate Squad, I pointed out this about the House Democrats’ alleged intraparty squabble:
This tweetstorm exposed the truth: the supposed “distancing” was all about political expedience not ideological difference. It was Nancy’s effort to hoodwink the American people into believe the Democrats don’t embrace this kind of vitriol and hate. But when push comes to shove, Nancy Pelosi drops all pretense and rallies behind the extremely unpopular Anti-American caucus.
Donald Trump gave Nancy that push. And all her efforts to create the narrative that the Democrats are not defined by these hateful shrews just went up in smoke.
Nancy isn’t even trying to pretend AOC isn’t influential in the House. And the more she aligns with her, the more moderate Democrats will get left in the dust — those same moderate Democrats whose victory gave Nancy the gavel.
Sure, AOC is as dumb as a box of rocks. But Nancy Pelosi joining forces with that dummy makes her even dumber.
Speaker Pelosi had a choice. She could strengthen the moderates and secure a 2020 Democrat House victory. Or she could double-down and embrace the Hate Squad and put the Democrat majority at risk.
She chose poorly.
Thanks, President Trump!
