Calmes: Nancy Pelosi, the GOAT, can’t fight back | Paul Ryan’s America
The battle is over. It’s over. We lost. We’re screwed. And we don’t know why.
I understand the need and the responsibility to fight back. And I understand why people do it. I understand it’s patriotic to fight back against a president who has engaged in unprecedented levels of deception.
To my shame, I didn’t.
I didn’t fight back. I let Pelosi slide from being the first minority, first woman Democratic leader I ever voted for, to being a weak, whiny victim. I let her slide so easy I’m shocked I’m still standing today.
Pelosi has always been the most powerful person in Washington. She was the first Speaker of the House. She was the leader. She was the most powerful.
And that, ladies and gentlemen, is where we are.
We’ve been taken for a ride. We’ve been played. To this day Nancy Pelosi refuses to tell the truth.
