Sean Hannity is playing spin doctor again, trying to convince his gullible fan base that Nancy Pelosi is suffering from dementia – or something along those lines. On his site Wednesday, an article was published with a video showing Nancy Pelosi mistakenly calling Trump “President Bush.”
To be fair, she did call him Bush. I watched the video clip and she stumbled for the name and came up with the wrong one. You know what? That happens. It happens to me every damn day of my life. I call my kids the wrong names all the time. They hate it, but they know what I mean. Plus, let’s get real: it isn’t hard to confuse two stupid, rich, white men who should have never sat in the Oval Office – EVER.
Hannity is sneaky. What he’s doing is training his viewers to regard Pelosi as a confused, old lady in an attempt to discredit her. His lemmings have already arrived at that conclusion without much help – he still has to work on those on the fence. It’s sick that his strategy is to call the most powerful woman in the Democratic party crazy. It’s a prime illustration of GOP talking heads stooping to any low in an attempt to cover up their seediness.
On Thursday, in a news conference, Pelosi stated,
This week we saw cold, hard evidence of the Trump campaign, indeed the Trump family, eagerly intending to collude, possibly, with Russia — a hostile foreign power — to influence American elections.
She went on to accuse the GOP of being enablers of the Trump-Russia scandal. She demanded Jared Kushner’s security clearance be revoked, the appointment of an outside commission, and the release of all Trump campaign and family communications. She is not fucking around.
After these latest revelations, it is becoming clear we have suffered a desecration of our democracy not seen since Watergate. Speaker Ryan must allow a vote on an outside, independent commission to get to the bottom of the Trump campaign’s role in the assault on our democracy and prevent Putin from ever doing it again.
Nancy Pelosi is very much present. She knows what is happening and that the GOP is allowing it to happen. However, there is hope. Along with people like Pelosi demanding answers, Republicans like Judiciary Committee Chairman Senator Chuck Grassley (IA) is on board. He is writing a letter to Donald Trump, Jr., asking him to testify next week, in public, about his meeting with a Russian government attorney to get information that could be used against Hillary Clinton.
There’s hope. Not everyone believes the discrediting-of-Pelosi rhetoric. It’s pure deflection. We will be awaiting Trump’s testimony next week.
Pelosi may have said “Bush”, but we all knew what she meant, and she damn well knows what’s going on in our White House:
