Two of the left’s leading lights continue to dim, and it could mean major problems for the Democrat Party in the coming days.
House minority leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has been in Congress for a very long time, long enough to remember the first President Bush, and maybe that’s just too long.
In a recent press conference where Pelosi was attempting to attack President Donald Trump, she seemed to forget what year it is and instead began to attack President Bush. “While its only been a couple of weeks since the inauguration, we’ve seen nothing that I can work with President Bush on,” Pelosi told the media. While everyone in the meeting seemed to notice that Pelosi had slipped back in time, they chose to overlook the mistake, likely believing that they should still be criticizing President Bush for something, anyway.
Sadly, for the Democrats, it’s not just little old Nancy that seems to losing it these days. Her fellow almost-octogenarian, Maxine Waters (D-CA), also lost track of her mind during THE SAME press conference.
Waters began coherently enough saying:
“This man is questionable… How can a president who is acting the manner he is acting — whether he’s talking about the travel ban, the way he’s targeted Muslims, or whether he’s talking about his relationship to [Vladimir] Putin and the Kremlin and knowing that they have hacked our DCCC and the DNC,” she said, referring to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee and the Democratic National Committee.”
She then added that President Trump had “done enough in the short period of time for questions to be raised about whether or not he is acting in the best interest of this country.”
It was here that Waters’ focus collapsed and she seemed to forget what universe she was living in as she pushed forward her odd attack. I’ll let the Daily Wire explain the rest.
“And knowing that he’s responsible for supplying the bombs that killed innocent children and families in, um, in, um,” she said, forgetting just exactly where. Someone behind piped up, “Aleppo.”
“Yeah, in Aleppo,” she said.
Now she was ready for her big finish.
“And the fact that he is wrapping his arms around Putin while Putin is continuing to advance into Korea.”
Like the scene from Animal House, she just kept going. “I think he’s leading himself into that kind of position where folks will begin to ask, ‘What are we going to do?’ and the answer’s going to be, ‘Eventually, we’ve got to do something about him.’”
But perhaps the best part of the entire conference came when Pelosi tried to wrap all of the incoherence up with one big bow of insanity. Pelosi closed the conference by calling Trump’s strategy thus far, “incoherent” and “incompetent.” That’s a lot like the pot calling the kettle “black” isn’t it?
The Democrats should probably be searching for some new, younger, and less crazy leaders, no?
