Nancy Pelosi began the day thinking this would be the moment where she finally took Donald Trump down.
But things did not go according to plan.
And Nancy Pelosi was thrown off of the House of Representatives floor for saying this one word.
Nancy Pelosi allowed for a vote on a resolution condemning President Trump for his supposedly “racist” tweets about Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib and Ayanna Pressley.
It was a fake news lie that the tweets were racist but Democrats seized on an opening to try and drive a wedge between the President and suburban women that will play a pivotal role in the 2020 Presidential Election.
Pelosi spoke on the House floor before the vote and that is when all hell broke loose.
“Every single member of this institution should join us in condemning the president’s racist tweets,” Pelosi ranted. “To do anything less would be a shocking rejection of our values and a shameful abdication of our oath of office to protect the American people.”
Congressman Doug Collins of Georgia – the top Republican on the House Judiciary Committee – knew he caught Pelosi in a mistake.
Collins objected to Pelosi’s remarks and demanded they be stricken from the record.
The Georgia Republican knew that House parliamentary procedure established by Thomas Jefferson in the early 1800s prevented members of Congress from calling the President a racist.
Democrat Congressman Emanuel Cleaver of Missouri took the astonishing step of vacating the chair and leaving Congress with no majority party because he knew Pelosi was wrong and the House Parliamentarian would rule against Pelosi.
Majority Leader Steny Hoyer took the gavel and was forced to announce that Pelosi’s smear violated House rules of decorum.
Hoyer cited a 1984 case when Speaker of the House Tip O’Neil’s words were taken down from the record after O’Neil ordered CSPAN cameras to show an empty House Chamber in response to an attack on the floor from Newt Gingrich.
“The chair is prepared to rule. The words of the gentlewoman from California contain an accusation of racist behavior on the part of the president. As memorialized in Chapter 29, Section 65.6, characterizing an action as racist is not in order,” House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) said on the floor ahead of the vote.
“The chair relies on the precedent of May 15, 1984, and finds that the words should not be used in debate,” he continued.
Hours of chaos broke out.
Pelosi was thrown off the House floor because she was banned from speaking for the rest of the day.
The House majority eventually flexed their muscle and voted along party lines to change the rules and reinstate Pelosi’s lie about the President into the record.
In an even more stunning move, Pelosi told reporters before the vote to replace her remarks back into the record, and that she was proud of lying about the President of the United States.
“I stand by my statement. I’m proud of the attention that’s being called to it because what the president said was completely inappropriate against our colleagues, but not just against them, against so many people in our country,” Pelosi declared.
