Nancy Pelosi will be 77 in March. Today she had what we’ll call a Maxine Waters moment?
Well, if progressives were hoping to have a competent opposition to the Trump White House with congressional Democrats, this little senior moment from House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi isn’t really a confidence booster. At a press conference on Monday, Pelosi said:
…While its only a couple of weeks since the inauguration, there’s complete evidence—there’s prac[sic]—we’ve seen nothing that we can work—that I can work with President Bush on and I’m disappointed because I thought that there might be some interest because of what he said in the campaign, which turns out to be not true, a hoax—and really dangerous to the economic stability of America’s working families.
President Bush? Of course, she meant President Trump—and even her colleagues standing behind her, specifically Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA), caught the error given their facial expressions. Democrats are probably not happy about the two executive orders President Trump signed that targeted the Dodd-Frank regulations on banking.
The Democrats are supposed to be the young, hip party, but it appears that major members of their leadership have no grasp of current events, or even what year it is. This is not a good look.
