Even metaphorically characterizing the Democratic Party as a “dumpster fire” seems like an understatement — it’s more accurately like a landfill that was just lit up by dozens of napalms.
Most Congressional Democrats think they’re just treading water trying to stay afloat for 2018 midterms, but they’re in denial about their imminent demise.
But Nancy Pelosi’s newest delusional comments might have just been the catalyst that ends the Democratic Party.
The Washington Times reports:
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said Wednesday she’s “very proud” that her members managed to sit through President Trump’s hour-long speech to Congress Tuesday night with ‘dignity.’
I was very proud of the dignity with which our members listened to his speech,’ Mrs. Pelosi said on MSNBC’s ‘Morning Joe.’
It was clearly a bait-and-switch speech.’
She said one unnamed member had said at one caucus meeting: ‘Look, if you can’t curb your enthusiasm there tonight, don’t go. And I’m not going.’
Host Joe Scarborough named Rep. Maxine Waters, California Democrat, as one person who skipped the event.
Mrs. Pelosi said she was concerned people might boo.
‘Because for all of the dignity we wanted to bring to the address of the president, the fact is I had no idea he was going to make an assault on public education, that he was going to have nothing positive to say about immigration, that he’s going to blow up the deficit — the list goes on and on,’ she said.
Democrats, though, actually hissed after the president announced plans to create an office dedicated to serving victims of illegal immigrant crime.
A few members also gave a ‘thumbs down’ when Mr. Trump talked about repealing Obamacare.
They also faked coughing when Mr. Trump said he’s begun to ‘drain the swamp’ of government corruption.
Apparently, Pelosi is extremely “proud” of immaturity.
Also, what dignity is she referring to? Dignity like bringing “dreamers” and dressing in white as protest to the President who was freely elected by the people? That kind of dignity?
This is exactly why even some Democrats agree that the Party is in desperate need of an overhaul.
Senator and former presidential candidate Bernie Sanders – who was conspired against by the former DNC Chairman Debbie Wasserman Schultz – also believes that they’re in desperate need of a “total transformation.”
Sanders said on CNN’s “State of the Union” about the Democratic Party:
“We need a total transformation. We need to open up the party to working people, to young people and make it crystal clear that the Democratic Party is going to take on Wall Street, it’s going to take on the greed of the pharmaceutical industry, it’s going to take on corporate America that is shutting down plants in this country and moving our jobs abroad.”
But isn’t President Trump already doing all of those things?
Sanders has been the key voice of opposition against the Trump administration’s actions, and yet, he wants the Party to be more like them?
That makes no sense, and that’s exactly why they’re destroying themselves, because they have zero identity, let alone dignity.
