It seems that former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi is either going on a serious bender or is off her medication or some combination of the two, because a lot of things flying out of her mouth as of late are nigh unto insane. Like, for example, her statement that it’s impossible for former President Donald Trump to serve as the commander-in-chief for another term. And as if that is nutty enough, she actually provided a defense for President Joe Biden’s chances of being reelected.
Pelosi made her comments while making an appearance on CNN and having a conversation with Phil Mattingly concerning the 2024 primary and general election. The California Democrat was not in agreement with Mattingly’s assertion that her party is worried about the outstanding poll numbers Trump is pulling in against the incumbent president in a potential rematch.
“This is a neck-and-neck race and no one feels very comfortable on the Democratic side of things that Donald Trump isn’t going to be the next president,” Mattingly commented.
“Well, I don’t think that nobody feels — I think many of us know that it is impossible for him to be the president again with what he is proposing,” Pelosi responded, according to the Daily Wire.
“Why do you say that?” Mattingly asked the California Democrat.
“Well, because when you’re talking about what he is talking about now with more tax cuts for corporate America, taking them down so low to the detriment of our budget and meeting the needs of people,” the former House Speaker went on to say during the conversation.

Pelosi then went into how “public sentiment is everything” in an election, and she believes the winning message for 2024 is on her party’s side. She added that she is confident in Biden’s campaign “to get the job done” in 2024.
“Our inside maneuvering to get the job done, the president’s vision for our country, his knowledge of the issues, his strategic thinking as a legislator are so important, but so is his emotional connection, the empathy he has for working families in our country,” remarked Pelosi.

President Biden and his campaign have put their sights on Trump in recent weeks as the former president continues to perform well in state and national polls pitting the two candidates against each other. In a speech on Monday at Mother Emanuel AME church in Charleston, South Carolina, the site of the 2015 race-fueled shooting that killed nine black members of the church, Biden slammed Trump and his supporters, comparing them to “defeated Confederates.”
The reason for the consistent good poll numbers for Trump is the failure of Biden and his policies. The current administration is a complete and utter disaster. All it has accomplished is the allowance of an invasion along the southern border, an economic crisis due to obscene levels of inflation, and utter chaos on the global stage. Hardly sounds like a ringing endorsement for a second term, right?
If the left wants to be taken seriously, true Democrats like those from the JFK-era, are going to have to expel the radicals from within their ranks, returning their party to the left of center instead of to the left of the weeds.
