What is wrong with the Speaker? We had one crazy Republican Speaker in John Boehner and one total swamp creature,Paul Ryan. Has insanity become a requirement? Who remembers when Congressman Joe Wilson (Republican)yelled out “you lie” during Pres Obama’s SOTU address. Did he ever cause an uproar! The liberal media went crazy and even a number of Republicans would vote to censure the Representative. As a matter of note,some Democrats actually voted against it. Wilson apologized to Obama for the outburst. He must have been thinking out loud.
Compare that to this:
It was pre-planned. It was deliberate. She was the Speaker. i’ve been around awhile and i have NEVER seen anything like it during any SOTU for any President. She was never censured. i don’t recall the liberal media being particularly outraged either. She never apologized.
This question hit a nerve with Madam Speaker:
The problem with her denying her hatred was that her actions vs her words gave her away.
She and her pal in the Senate, minority leader Mitch McConnell, share the same arrogance. They have no self awareness.
Here is a moment where she didn’t have to do cartwheels or clap till her hands fell off but watch how she does behaves:
She took nothing away from what a great moment it was that night. It does reveal how bizarre she can be.
Remember her tips on how to get through isolation of the pandemic?
In contrast the district she is supposed to represent is plagued by homelessness, a drug epidemic, filth and unsanitary conditions. The Business Insider covered the dreadful conditions in 2016 https://www.businessinsider.com/san-franciscos-dirtiest-street-has-a-drug-market-and-piles-of-poop-2018-10
She was first elected to Congress in 1987. She has spent 16 of her 33 years in Congress as the Speaker.i can hardly remember when she didn’t have her cherished gavel.i don’t recall her acting as crazy-even when Bush was in office-as she has since Donald Trump became President. She held up the stimulus checks in 2020 simply because it was an election year.She was afraid it would make Trump look good. She doesn’t seem to be any calmer about him either, even though he is no longer in office.
The NY Times revealed an unprecedented phone call the Speaker made to the Pentagon chairman, Gen. Mark A. Milley. Ms. “Pelosi appeared to be seeking to have the Pentagon leadership essentially remove Mr. Trump from his authorities as the commander in chief. That could be accomplished by ignoring the president’s orders or slowing them by questioning whether they were issued legally” The paper even noted, “short of the cabinet invoking the 25th Amendment or removing Mr. Trump through impeachment in the House and conviction in the Senate, it is unconstitutional to defy legal orders from the commander in chief”.
Yep,she’s got problems.
She didn’t stop there. She gave VP Mike Pence an ultimatum by letter telling him he either invoked the 25th amendment to remove Donald Trump from office or she would begin his 2nd impeachment .With 8 days left in the term of the President, Pence refused. She kept her word and they started the impeachment. After Trump was acquitted(she must have known they didn’t have the votes)she appeared before the press.
Remember when the media put out the narrative that Trump had become unglued during a meeting with Nancy. Every cable news network ran with that story. Sure that narrative was credible?
Did Pelosi hate Pres Trump? She said no,but i bet you could say she very strongly disliked him.My personal take is she liked power and wanted no one in the way. She perceived Trump as being in the way.
