Speaker, Nancy Pelosi must be off of her medication. She predicts that Tump will lose in 2020 and that he won’t ‘respect’ losing election results. It’s a wonder she’s even out showing her face after all of the bashing she did before the Mueller report sank Dem’s little egos.
Mediaite reported that in an interview with The New York Times out today, Pelosi said she held similar concerns about the midterms last year:
“If we win by four seats, by a thousand votes each, he’s not going to respect the election,” said Ms. Pelosi, recalling her thinking in the run-up to the 2018 elections.
“He would poison the public mind. He would challenge each of the races; he would say you can’t seat these people,” she added. “We had to win. Imagine if we hadn’t won — oh, don’t even imagine. So, as we go forward, we have to have the same approach.”
Pelosi has told people around her that she doesn’t “automatically trust the president to respect the results of any election short of an overwhelming defeat.”
Pelosi then added that she and Democrats believe they have to “inoculate” against the possibility that “Mr. Trump would not give up power voluntarily if he lost re-election.”
Part of her strategy of “inoculation” involves convincing fellow Democrats that impeachment is not the best route for challenging the president in Congress. Instead, she believes, Democrats should focus on making the 2020 elections a referendum on Trump’s performance and his culpability in obstructing Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into whether Trump’s campaign colluded with Russian officials to alter the outcome of the 2016 presidential election.
“Do not get dragged into a protracted impeachment bid that will ultimately get crushed in the Republican-controlled Senate, and do not risk alienating the moderate voters who flocked to the party in 2018 by drifting too far to the left,” Pelosi suggests, according to the NYT.
So Pelosi not only feels like President Trump is going to lose in 2020 but that he will be a sore loser? I think she has him confused with Hillary Clinton. Who knows? After the Meuller report blew up in Dem’s faces and revealed a massive cover that included the FBI, maybe we should all question the results if Trump doesn’t win. Because, compared to the massive pool of the Democratic hopeless, Trump looks more like gold than ever before!
