House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) last week referred to President Donald Trumps allies as henchmen, prompting a rebuke from CBS News anchor Gayle King.
In the interview, Pelosi claimed Trump had no fidelity to the U.S. Constitution, The Daily Wires Eric Quintanar reported. Pelosi then called Trumps allies henchmen.
[Trump] and his henchmen are a dangerwith their commentsare a danger to our democracy. So I dont want to give himwhy bother? [He] doesnt tell the truth, he isnt committed to our Constitution, Pelosi told King.
For her part, King called out Pelosis remarks as egregious and no better than the insults Trump regularly uses against his opponents, USA Today reported.
Your language to some is just as egregious as what theyre saying, by calling the Presidents people henchmen, King said. Some could say, thats just as insulting as what hes saying about you.
Pelosi responded: Well, I dont care what he says about me. Every knock from him is a boost for me. If he wants to help me raise money, he can keep knocking me.
Pelosis remarks came after King asked her whether she still believed Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden should avoid debating Trump.
As The Daily Wire previously reported, Pelosi said last month that Biden shouldnt debate Trump because it would legitimize a conversation with him.
Since you asked about that, said Pelosi. I myselfdont tell anybody I told you this, especially dont tell Joe BidenI dont think that there should be any debates. I do not think that the President of the United States has comported himself in a way that anybody that has any association with truth, evidence, data, and facts.
I wouldnt legitimize a conversation with him, nor a debate in terms of the presidency of the United States, Pelosi continued.
I think he will also belittle what the debates are supposed to be about. And theyre not to be about skullduggery on the part of somebody who has no respect for the office he holds, much less the democratic process, she added.
While Pelosi claimed to King last week that Trump has no fidelity to fact or truth, she said her language was acceptable because shes speaking truth.
Our Constitution is at the mercy of people who have no allegiance to the Constitution of the United States, Pelosi claimed. They have repeatedly demonstrated that.
Pelosi appeared to be referring to Trumps suggestion that he would decide whether there would be a peaceful transition of power after the election results were final. While Democrats have repeatedly announced they would riot in the streets if Trump were re-elected and indeed did that after Hillary Clinton lost in 2016 the media focused heavily on Trumps offhand remark.
As Quintanar reported, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) tweeted: The winner of the November 3rd election will be inaugurated on January 20th. There will be an orderly transition just as there has been every four years since 1792.
Says the woman who is fine with stacking the courts, adding new states, abolishing the electoral college, and implementing term limits to supreme court justices.
Has the left ever pointed to what Trump has done that wasn’t within the constitution?
No, they just throw their hyperbole at the wall and the lemmings just nod in agreement, no questions. pathetic.
If you press them on this, I think the standard response is "Everything".
That's about the best they can do. They really have no principles, only hate.
Is there anybody left in this country that pays any attention to Nancy Pelosi? I have Died in the Wool Democrat friends who live in California and despise her. They tell me, that they switch their channels on the TV when she appears.
Did Pelosi think she was talking to a private individual, not the media? Is she that far gone? Do Dems believe they own the media so much that they can tell them what to do?
“For her part, King called out Pelosis remarks as egregious and no better than the insults Trump regularly uses against his opponents, USA Today reported.”
No, this was just an excuse to get Tuna Nan’s attack in the headlines.
...”Henchman - a faithful follower or political supporter, especially one prepared to engage in crime or dishonest practices by way of service.”
Nasty Pelosi does it again.... she is a disgrace... I just wish she would take a case of Geritol and a few tubes of Polident and just go off somewhere to be forgotten....
More ugly language from Pelosi.
Well...ugly language from ugly minds
