The Midterms are over and we, unfortunately, lost the house to the supposed blue wave. Although with the numbers you could say it was more of a ripple. But we did keep The Senate, so we can stop any underhanded moves brought forth by the Democrats. Since the Democrats have won the house there is already talk of how Nancy Pelosi will be back as the Majority leader. Trump congratulated her and seems to think she will be easy to handle.
“In all fairness, Nancy Pelosi deserves to be chosen Speaker of the House by the Democrats. If they give her a hard time, perhaps we will add some Republican votes. She has earned this great honor!”
Pelosi gave an odd speech in light of her 2019 reappointment to majority leader.
“Today is about… restoring the constitution’s checks and balance to the Trump Administration. It’s about stopping The GOP and Mitch McConnell assault on Medicare, Medicaid, The Affordable Care Act and the healthcare of… Americans living with pre-existing conditions.”
“Let’s hear it more for pre-existing medical conditions!” Pelosi called out as one of the weirdest rallying cries.
She went on to talk about how Democrats were going to change things and supposedly fix Washington.
“Democrats pledge a congress that works for the people..and to clean up corruption to make Washington work for all Americans.”
She then ended with a divisive statement calling everyone together.
“In stark contrast to the GOP’s Congress, the Democrats will be led with transparency and openness” and aim to “find common ground when we can and stand our ground when we can’t.” She ended her speech by proclaiming that she is sick if the divisive nature of the current climate.

"Today is more than about Democrats and Republicans. It's about restoring the Constitution's checks and balances to the Trump administration," says Nancy Pelosi, shortly after CNN projects that Democrats will take control of the House https://t.co/BvsJ35AvPQ pic.twitter.com/8LWJbEXMhk

Pelosi called for the togetherness. Yet she scoffed at Trump when he called for unity after the recent synagogue shooting. So is it because the Democrats now have the House that they will start acting civil? Or is it just more smoke blown up Americans butts. I’m thinking the latter.
