Speaker Nancy Pelosi obviously loves getting her ass kicked as much as Hillary Clinton. In case you’ve missed it, Pelosi has been replaced by AOC. Pelosi has almost no power in Congress.
And it was President Trump who made that happen.
Pelosi set the strategy for the Democrats, post-Obama. She was to finish the Russian collusion hoax, and she assembled the best team in DC. Trump made the lot of them look like Barney Fife. Mueller and team blew it, as Trump dug deeper into the swamp, brought in pumps, and drained it.
Next, Pelosi tried impeachment. Democrats discussed it from the moment Trump was elected. They promised to keep Trump litigating his entire presidency. So for what Biden should have been prosecuted on, they tried to get Trump.
He brushed them off like lint on a silk suit. #FAIL.
Then Democrats pulled out the formerly tried and true race card. They painted police and Trump’s law and order approach as racist. Outcome?
As I wrote recently, Pelosi capitulated on the rioters and looters. Publicly. On the House floor.
America watched the peaceful transition of power. Pelosi gave up what little power she wields to Trump. If Marvel needs a new movie to make about a super hero, this one has all the elements.
So the idea that Pelosi wants to play Tina Toughass humors me. And apparently President Trump feels much the same.
In an interview on Fox & Friends, the president said:
“I heard if I [nominate], they’re going to impeach me. So they’re impeaching me for doing what constitutionally I have to do. If they do that, we win all elections.”
Trump added, if the Democrats impeach him, his “numbers will go up.”
“I think we’ll win the entire election. I think we’re going to win back the House, I think we’re going to win the House anyway.”
Obviously, I agree 100 percent. Democrats can only make empty threats now. Because Trump has them by the short hairs.
Trump DARES Pelosi to follow through. He did the same with the first impeachment, and look what that did for him. A second impeachment solidifies an already staunch base and moves even more Democrats to Trump’s team.
Democrats have hinted for months that a second impeachment was in the cards. Clearly, Americans see the games played by Democrats, and they are sick of it. When things favor Democrats, they complain. When things don’t favor Democrats they complain louder.
Now, all they can do is vow to stop Trump from doing his job.
On a side note, I’m guessing these Dems forgot what Obama said regarding this very situation.
It went something like this:
Just dug up this clip of Obama in 2016:
“When there is a vacancy on the SCOTUS, the President is to nominate someone, the Senate is to consider that nomination… There’s no unwritten law that says that it can only be done on off-years. That’s not in the Constitution text.” pic.twitter.com/vrOi3DrkJN

But no matter what leftists threaten, Trump won’t sweat it. In fact, the president’s confidence in winning his election and the House is not unfounded. He’s not saying it to placate those in his base questioning the polls. He knows the polls. He knows what wars he’s prepared to fight.
What he knows most is that America loves his work. Moreover, they know Biden is incapable of doing the job. Biden is a Democrat placeholder. A cautionary tale, nevertheless.
Because for Democrats to fight so hard to elect a fool should scare all Americans. That is Pelosi’s challenge. To offer a 77-year-old demented man as the best your party can manage; pathetic.
