Nancy Pelosi’s latest humiliation was too much for many Democrats to bear.
They couldn’t believe what happened when Pelosi appeared on MSNBC for what should have been a friendly interview.
Nancy Pelosi’s chickens are coming home to roost after this lie backfired.
Congress just passed a $484 billion small business rescue plan.
Pelosi held up the deal for weeks trying to win inclusion of Democrat Party wish list goodies.
That strategy failed when Republicans held the line.
But the end result was 4.4 million Americans filing for unemployment in part because a fund to loan small businesses money to keep workers on the payroll ran dry and Pelosi refused to allow a vote on new funding.
Pelosi tried to rewrite history and minimize any political damage by appearing on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” for a friendly chat.
During the back and forth with hosts Joe Scarborough and Mike Brzezinski, Pelosi once again floated the baseless conspiracy theory that Russian President Vladimir Putin compromised Donald Trump and that Trump was a secret Russian agent.
“It leads you to the question about what does Vladimir Putin have on President Trump personally, politically, financially, in every way?” Pelosi asked.
Pelosi then pushed the big lie that because Donald Trump was allegedly a Russian agent, the Russian government would once again cheat on his behalf.
This – Pelosi outrageously claimed – was evidence that the next round of coronavirus relief legislation needed to contain money to fund a so-called “universal vote by mail” scheme that acted as an open invitation to voter fraud.
“No matter what the president says, it cannot be denied. But it takes us to the next step. They have also told us 24/7 the Russians are still at work trying to undermine our election. That is why we have to have an important chunk of money in this next bill that will enable us to protect the integrity of our elections, as well as enable the American people to vote by mail, especially at this time of a health danger in going to the polls,” Speaker Pelosi added.
“This is the lifeblood of our democracy, the vote. So here we are trying to protect the lives of American people, the livelihoods of the American people, and also the life of our democracy. That is what we are going to do in the next bill as well,” Pelosi added.
So-called “universal vote by mail” is the Holy Grail of Democrat wish list items.
A large percentage of Democrat voters are clustered in the nation’s largest cities.
The Democrat voting base lumped in large population centers makes it easier to harvest mail-in votes and stuff ballot boxes.
Voting by mail would also circumvent voter ID laws and compromise the integrity of the election by eliminating any checks to make sure those casting ballots are who they say they are.
