House Votes to Grant Pelosi Same Privileges as an Illegal Alien
After succumbing to another bout of Trump Derangement Syndrome, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has earned an asterisk next to her name in the history books.
Pelosi is now one of a tiny minority of House Speakers who has been rebuked by a member of the minority party and had her words stricken from the House record in shame.
Democrats and media members simply haven’t been able to contain themselves or curb their tongues since Donald Trump first announced his candidacy back in 2015.
Congratulations, Nancy Pelosi! You are an embarrassment to your country!
President Trump successfully enraged the entire Democrat media complex with a few deft tweets, pointing out that freshman socialist Democrats hate America with unbridled passion. He noted that these freshmen, dubbed the “squad,” despise America and hate Jewish people.
Trump then suggested that they should go back to the failed countries they or their parents fled from (Somalia, Puerto Rico and the Palestinian territories) and govern those into better places, before criticizing America. “You can’t leave fast enough!” Trump insisted.
This was glorious, by the way, and every poll shows Trump’s support growing among Republicans. Once again, Trump was the one person in America with the guts to say what all of his supporters were thinking.
After sputtering for an entire weekend and claiming that the president is a “racist,” Nancy Pelosi rushed to pass a House resolution condemning him.
Trump’s move was genius. By singling out Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), Trump forced Pelosi to run to the defense of her biggest enemies in the House – the neo-progressive communists known as the “squad.”
In her rush to condemn President Trump, Pelosi committed a serious blunder and then the House descended into chaos. Pelosi called the President of the United States a “racist” on the House floor.
Rep. Doug Collins (R-GA) immediately recognized the violation and called Pelosi out on it. He gave her every chance to retract her words about the president.
Pelosi refused and then stormed off the House floor – a second violation by the Speaker. A House rule that has been in place since Thomas Jefferson wrote the rules is that personal attacks are utterly forbidden.
American lawmakers are allowed to debate policy but are not allowed to issue personal attacks – which is exactly what Pelosi did by calling the president a “racist.”
The House then voted to condemn Pelosi’s speech and strike her personal attack on Trump from the record. But then, in a party-line vote, the Democrats voted that Pelosi should not actually face the required punishment for her blatant rule-breaking.
In normal circumstances, if a House Speaker violates the rules and storms off like Pelosi did, that Representative (including the Speaker) is then barred from speaking on the House floor again. Democrats voted that Pelosi could come back and mouth off.
In other words, the House Democrats granted Pelosi the same privileges as an illegal alien. Everyone agreed that she broke the rules, but the majority Democrats granted her amnesty for doing so.
The scene on the House floor became so chaotic that Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-MO), who was presiding over the session, threw his hands up in the air and shouted, “I abandon the chair!”
You can’t really blame Cleaver. It’s been decades since a House Speaker has acted as shamefully as Nancy Pelosi, so no one was really sure on the proper Parliamentary Procedure rules to follow.
The last time a House Speaker was rebuked and had his words stricken from the record was when a young Rep. Newt Gingrich (R-GA) called out the flabby Speaker Tip O’Neil (D-MA) in 1984. Very few political junkies under the age of 50 can even remember when that happened.
All in all, it was a hilarious day on the House floor. Nancy Pelosi wanted to have a big moment and have the House officially brand President Trump a “racist.”
Instead, the entire day backfired on her and her Speakership is now tarnished by the outburst. After all these years, the Democrats and the media still haven’t learned their lesson: Beware of attacking President Donald Trump.
