(Tea Party 247) – Democrats are truly sick in the head. They actually believe the world revolves around them and their demented agenda. They’re happy to utterly destroy America if it means taking down President Trump. They demand complete loyalty from leftist media outlets and should anyone dare to ask a reasonable, impartial question it generally leads to a meltdown of some kind from whatever Dem is being interviewed.
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi was completely taken off guard during an interview with PBS News Hour’s Judy Woodruff when Woodruff asked her a perfectly reasonable and appropriate question over the second coronavirus stimulus package being negotiated by Congress right now. Isn’t PBS liberal? Aren’t they supposed to give Pelosi a pass on the hard questions and just spew out leftist talking points while praising Dems and slamming Trump?
How dare Woodruff question Pelosi on finding common ground with the GOP to get the stimulus package passed, pointing out that the GOP has done a lot to meet the Dems halfway and that there is even money from the first stimulus package from the spring that has yet to be spent. Because of this, Pelosi snapped at Woodruff accusing her of advocating for the Republicans. Pelosi is so unstable and transparent it’s comical.
“Well, if you want to be an advocate for them, Judy, let’s know what the facts are,” snapped Pelosi.
All Woodruff was trying to do was to find out the position of congressional Democrats, which continues to be in perpetual tantrum mode over the 2016 election. Woodruff shattered Pelosi’s well-laid plans of trying to smear the GOP as Neanderthals over this relief bill. The GOP wants less spending, but Woodruff noted they are willing to show flexibility in the negotiations. Still, for Democrats, it’s ‘orange man, bad’ for all things. Moreover, given this train wreck of an interview, it’s pretty clear that Democrats aren’t willing to compromise at the moment.
Real Clear Politics transcribed some of the interview in which Pelosi had her meltdown:
PELOSI: No, there’s no in between. There’s no in between.
The fact is that, since we passed our bill, which was 11 weeks ago tomorrow, 3.3 million more people have gone on to the infected list; of those infected, 70,000 more people have died.
And the Republicans said they were going to push the pause button. And they did. And then, last week, they came up with some piecemeal thing.
So, the — we’re not saying to the American people, more people are infected, more people are dying, more people are uninsured, more children are hunger-insecure, or food-insecure, and guess what? We’re going to cut your benefit.
WOODRUFF: Well, Madam Speaker, the — I mean, with all due respect, you called it piecemeal, and yet what the Republicans were offering was a short-term extension that would have allowed these extra unemployment benefits to keep flowing. Democrats said no.
PELOSI: Well, it would have been finished by now.
They were talking about a few — actually, the fact is, they didn’t have anything that they could pass in the Senate on their own side. So, if the press wants to say, well, they offered this, they offered that, they — you can’t offer something you don’t have.
We have a bill. It’s called the HEROES Act. It passed 11 weeks ago tomorrow. It would have saved lives.
They have nothing. They can’t even pass — they have said, we have 20 members who won’t vote for anything. So, what, we’re talking rhetoric, or are we talking reality about what one side or the other is offering?
And if they wanted to offer some piecemeal thing for one week that does not — you only do that when you’re on the verge of closing, of passing a bill and having it signed into law. Otherwise, it’s just showbiz.
Pelosi and the Dems sure know a thing or two about “showbiz.” Everything they do is an act. They act like they care about the American people and the coronavirus but the reality is all they care about is destroying President Trump and turning America into some kind of Orwellian dystopia. While American families are suffering, Democrats are happy to continue to drag out any kind of negotiations that would bring relief. Democrats don’t care about anything except power and they don’t care about anyone except themselves.
