The Democrat’s infighting began just hours after the 2020 election. Moderates want to get rid of the socialists and the socialists want to get rid of the old Washington insiders. Nancy Pelosi is being singled out by her own party. Her time is up!
Democrats turn on Nancy Pelosi
New York Republican Rep. Elise Stefanik said she believes that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s reelection is “in peril” as several Democrats have vowed to not support her reelection. In an appearance on Fox & Friends, Stefanik referenced the slim Democrat majority in the House following the November elections and noted that Pelosi, who has grown increasingly unpopular especially among the party’s far-left, can only afford to lose a handful of members.
Co-host Rachel Campos Duffy noted that the long-serving California Democrat lost 15 members when she won the speakership in 2018. She also noted that the party’s far-left wing, including Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) and Rep.-elect Cory Bush (D-Mo.), want younger leadership, and that if any Democrats fell ill from COVID-19, it could potentially hand the Speakership to House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.).
“I have thought for weeks that Nancy Pelosi’s Speakership is in peril, and there’s a few reasons why,” Stefanik said. “Number one, her majority is so slim, she can only lose three to four votes of that Speakership. That means there are a number of members who voted against her last time that are going to have to vote for her.”
Swamp creatures vs socialists
Stefanik went on to say, “In addition, it’s not just the socialist far-left progressives like AOC, Rep.-elect Jamal Bowman D-N.Y. and others who are withholding their votes, it’s also some of the middle-of-the-road Democrats, who promised their constituents they would never vote for Nancy Pelosi.”
Whether or not Pelosi can get to the 218-vote threshold needed to remain the House Speaker, Stefanik was blunt: “I don’t think she has the juice to get it done. I believe that her Speakership is in peril and those members if they withhold their votes, there will be a new generation of leadership on the Democratic side.”
She went on to explain how many Democrats do not support Pelosi, and the mainstream media refuses to report on this. “The media never wants to acknowledge weakness when it comes to Nancy Pelosi,” said Stefanik. “They love writing these very biased headlines about how she’s a master legislator, which she’s not, the American people know that.”
