Progressives are widely known for their political stunts, a here comes yet another one.
It seems that everything that Nancy Pelosi has uttered in the last few years has been complete nonsense, like her response to the Trump tax cuts,
“We do know that many more people, hundreds of thousands of people, will die if this bill passes” and what she had to say for the bonuses that American businesses decide to give to their employees, to which she referred as “CRUMBS.”
Nevertheless, we have to hand it to her, being a 77-year-old woman and standing on stiletto heels and speaking in front of the U.S. House of Representatives for eight hours is by all means not an easy thing to do.
Perhaps if the nonsense that is coming out of her mouth matched her appearance, Democrats wouldn’t be so worried that they won’t win a reelection.
And if they really don’t win, it will all be because of Pelosi’s newest stunt on illegal immigration.
Reportedly, one unhappy Democrat said : “Virtually everyone trying to win seats outside of California feels she has hurt their chances.”
These Democrats are furious that Pelosi decided to take the stage and talk for eight hours about her own self-serving policies.
Even President Donald Trump acknowledged her dramatic stand, when she decided to talk and talk until Republicans surrendered to her request to protect the “Dreamers”.
So since the President made a very generous proposal weeks ago, why is there still a need to over-dramatize this issue.
Politico interviewed some House Democrat members about this matter. Several of them were willing to speak only if their identity remained anonymous, and they reportedly gave honest responses about what their thoughts were on what Pelosi did.
The mutual agreement was that she is trying to “shore up support with the progressive base” who believe that Democrats didn’t do everything they could to protect them.
Despite the fact that the President offered them a good deal, many Democrat members like Rep. Luis Gutiérrez (D-IL) believe they have lost their negotiating leverage.
