The Democrats are ecstatic about reclaiming the House. They don’t even know why, because Trump has proven them to be morons.
Trump demolished Obama as a president. And if it weren’t for an orchestrated effort to “create” a legacy of achievement, the Left would happily expose Obama as a fraud.
For now, Democrats get their win*, yes with an asterisk. They were to dispatch Trump and his mandate with the midterms, and Trump added to the Senate, preserved governships, and still dominates the media.
Right after the midterms, President Trump wasted no time trolling Democrats and specifically Nancy Pelosi.
“In all fairness, Nancy Pelosi deserves to be chosen Speaker of the House by the Democrats. If they give her a hard time, perhaps we will add some Republican votes. She has earned this great honor!”

Pelosi has no idea how she just put herself in the crosshairs.
Trump likely already has a few nicknames picked out for her. He will unleash it when Pelosi is at her weakest.
Democrats likely know that Pelosi represents a gift to Trump. And she will pay off like a fixed slot machine.
Nancy Pelosi became Speaker of the House on November 16, 2006. Then, four short years later in 2010 she lost that title. Thus, she was forced to turn over the gavel to John Boehner.
What a glorious day for Republicans, but also Americans. Because for two years, the Democrats controlled the presidency, the House and the Senate, and all they managed to accomplish was a “stimulus” and Obamacare, two economy-crushing pieces of legislation that stunk on ice. But a great question is, “What did the Democrats not accomplish during those unencumbered two years?”
No comprehensive immigration. Which has led to the massive invasion over the past decades.
No “common sense” gun legislation, as Leftocrats like to call abolishing the 2nd Amendment.
Nothing to support veterans, and in fact we learned that they allowed veterans to die on waiting list.
Truthfully, Democrats accomplished nothing for which America suffers mightily. Yet they continually blame Republicans for everything.
During their unencumbered political free reign in the Era of Obama, Democrats set a course for a massive “tax and spend” spree that technically bankrupted our economy. By the end of Obama’s reign of economic terror, the U.S. added almost $10 trillion to our debt.
At the end of his term, Obama warned us that we needed to get used to massive trade deficits, and that manufacturing wasn’t returning to America. He called this, “the new norm”. Also Obama declared 1.5 percent GDP “the new norm”, and said don’t expect for the U.S. economy to generate 2 percent for the foreseeable future.
Democrats doted on their new leader. And again, for two years, Pelosi controlled the branch of government that supported “the new norms”.
Then came Trump.
Trump confounded Democrats.
First, he won in November of 2016. That was completely unexpected by Democrats, as was his approach to governing. Trump expected success, and he created it.
Trump blew up Obama’s norms. Without $8+ trillion in phony money (quantitative easing, aka counterfeiting), Trump built a truly strong economy. Instead of losing manufacturing jobs, Trump returned over 430,000 manufacturing jobs back to America. And he loaded the queue for even more.
Trump proved that he could easily double Obama’s maximum prediction for GDP. Moreover, he can sustain it.
When you consider how President Trump returned $2 trillion back into business annually by lifting onerous legislation off their backs, compounded with tax breaks and new trade policies, you get an idea of just how long this economy can last. Decades.
And that’s why Trump not only held the Senate, but grew the numbers. An achievement accomplished only 5 times in the last 105 years. Further, he maintained key governships, thus thwarting the Blue Wave predicted by many Democrats.
Despite all this undeniable progress, Nancy Pelosi wanted the gavel back. And history delivered…barely.
Democrats did win the House, and now they want to exert power they no longer have.
Democrats live on the muscle-memory of Obama’s “I’m just black” legacy. They forget just how far Obama and the Democrats have fallen from grace.
Take Rep. Jerry Nadler for example.
The top Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee says he wants “answers immediately” after President Trump forced Jeff Sessions to resign.
Nadler is in line to become the chairman of the Judiciary panel when Democrats take control of the House in January. He tweeted that “we will be holding people accountable.”
By “people”, he means “not Democrats”.
He deserved to know nothing. But soon he will learn everything.
For those of you wondering what will Trump do over the next two years, know that Trump will get the House back. And here’s why…
The economy will continue to improve. While Democrats will try to take credit for the improvement, Trump won’t let them.
He will pick fights with the House, then pass his legislation by edict, likely Executive Orders.
Next, Trump won’t take Democrat cheating lying down. He will root out the bad characters, clean up voter roles, and provide Federal oversight to fair elections.
And the Democrats will lose the House in 2020.
