The end is finally here. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi is devastated — she can’t believe this is happening, and there’s nothing she can do about it.
According to reports, President Trump told House Republicans that Pelosi’s impeachment push is “going make Kevin speaker,” referring to House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA).
Trump couldn’t be more right. Democrats, in their anti-Trump zeal, will end up focusing voter anger on them for bringing the nation through this farce. Pelosi will lose her speakership as a result.
The president doesn’t seem too concerned, especially knowing that Democrats are notoriously bad at reading the political tea leaves. Deep down, Pelosi knows she shouldn’t have launched this impeachment inquiry.
In fact, she recently acknowledged the possibility of losing the 2020 election. “It doesn’t matter,” she said. “Our first responsibility is to protect an defend the Constitution of the United States.”
Well, caring about the Constitution would be a first for Pelosi — and her claiming that her party losing next November “doesn’t matter” is a sure sign it does. She just can’t close Pandora’s box now.
