As we wend our way to the 2018 midterm election, one thing is clear. A significant subset of the Democratic Party is batshit insane.
A Democratic lawmaker who has tirelessly campaigned for President Trump’s impeachment blasted House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi on Monday for undermining his effort.
Pelosi, in an interview with The Dallas Morning News, had said she wishes Democrats like Rep. Al Green, D-Texas, would not make impeaching Trump a rallying cry.
“We have elections,” she said. “Go vote if it’s a policy thing and a behavior thing. I don’t know if you can get impeached for being a jerk, but if we did, this guy would be long gone. But that’s not unifying.”
But Green, who has spearheaded the push to impeach Trump, criticized Pelosi, saying that reducing Trump to a jerk “trivializes the impact of his bigoted policies on Jews, Latinos, African-Americans, women and the LGBTQ community.”
Oh please Democrats. Please run on a platform of impeaching President Trump. Please!
I mean, it’s not like his “bigoted policies” on Jews hasn’t fostered the opening of our US Embassy in Jerusalem, and a strengthening of the US – Israel alliance, right?
Or, his “bigoted policies” on Latinos and African-Americans haven’t created more jobs for both groups than any president ever. In fact the economy is booming, except perhaps in places reflexively ruled by Democrats (yeah, I’m looking at you Seattle, and sadly, New Jersey).
And he’s so bigoted against women that he’s got more of them in high-level White House positions than any previous administration. Oh, right, he whooped Felonia Milhous von Pantsuit’s ass. Oops. Sorry, not sorry.
As for “the LGBTQ community” Congressman, Ric Grenell is on line 1, and Peter Thiel would like a word too.
Sheesh. It’s like this guy doesn’t inhabit the Real World.
Then again, in the fever swamps of NJ Democrats (alas, I don’t know much about Texas Democrats) he’s mainstream. I hear people talking impeachment All The Time. It’s their Holy Grail. The NJ.com and Baristanet comment boards are full of keyboard warriors eager to opine on how Robert Mueller’s latest fizzled “bombshell” is guaranteed to bring Trump frog-marched into the dock. They hate Donald Trump with a visceral passion, and they’re not afraid to tell us, repeatedly.
Earlier this month, Pelosi told Politico that impeachment was popular in her district.
See, what did I say?
Mikie Sherrill’s minions are gung-ho for impeachment too. They see Russians under every bed Trump sleeps in. Of course they failed see the actual Russian spies who lived for decades in her Montclair neighborhood so I’m skeptical about their newfound Rooskie Radar, but hey, whatever keeps them warm at night. And when they’re not beating the impeachment drum they’re marching for gun confiscation so you can be sure the crazy runs deep around her campaign.
Which of course is Good News for Jay Webber, and Steve Lonegan too. That Blue Wave is looking more and more like a ripple, if that, meaning that as long as the Al Green Wing keeps talking Nancy Pelosi’s chances of grabbing the gavel keep diminishing. God Bless America.
