After giving a record-breaking, 8-hour, filibuster-style speech supporting illegal aliens, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi was likely patting herself on the back. However, her celebration came to an abrupt end when she discovered what fellow Democratic lawmakers just “leaked” about her.
Ever since Hillary Clinton lost the presidential election, Democrats have neither politically nor emotionally recovered, as is evident in their relentless marching, screaming fits, and anti-Trump vitriol. Unfortunately for them, this obsessive hatred for all things Trump has spiraled out of control, causing them to completely lose sight of what their own voters want.
Abandoning their constituents for the millions of entitled migrants who entered our country illegally, elite Democratic politicians can no longer hear the angry cries of their voting base over their own efforts for criminal aliens. Of course, not only have these liberal lawmakers distanced themselves from their own supporters, they’re also devouring each other in Congress — and it couldn’t be more delightful to watch.
On Wednesday, House Minority Leader Nancy “Crumbs” Pelosi (D-CA) launched an 8-hour filibuster-style speech on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives, which experts believe is possibly the longest address in House history.
Expectedly, those who applauded Pelosi’s efforts mostly gushed over her ability to do so in 4-inch heels. However, the self-righteous representative’s smug celebration soon soured when not only did liberals begin to blast her intentions but her own fellow Democratic lawmakers anonymously exposed a startling bit of information about the minority leader.
Further dividing and weakening the Democratic Party, Pelosi’s long-winded address backfired when around a dozen House Democrats, several of whom requested to speak anonymously, slammed her speech, lamenting that the minority leader not only “hurt their chances” of winning seats but will cause Americans to blame them for an impending government shutdown.
Still, others blasted Pelosi’s intentions for the DACA-themed speech, revealing that she doesn’t actually care about the “Dreamers” but is using them for political gain, according to Politico.
Some centrist-minded Democrats said Pelosi’s daylong protest could — by calling attention to the failure to provide relief for Dreamers — make it that much harder for vulnerable members to vote for the budget deal. …
“This stunt … had nothing to do with protecting vulnerable members who have to take a difficult vote,” said one moderate lawmaker who asked not to be named. “Working out this deal and then saying she’s not going to vote for it? Come on. She was at the table.” …
All House Democrats are supportive of Dreamers. But several members, particularly centrists, are wary of using the immigration issue as a campaign cudgel, worried it could derail Democrats’ chances of taking back the House.
According to Bloomberg’s Sahil Kapur, another anonymous Democratic rep. explained that fellow lawmakers are “furious” at Pelosi for hindering progress and pushing them closer to a government shutdown. The lawmaker, who some speculate may be Rep. Tim Ryan (D-OH), passionately censured Pelosi for going against the aspirations of her colleagues, adding that “virtually everyone” believes that “she has hurt their chances” of gaining the political advantage.

Of course, other Democratic lawmakers weren’t afraid to publicly unleash their condemnation of Pelosi’s damaging political stunt.
“There’s all kinds of ways, I assure you, that leadership exercises its influence — the least of which is a floor speech,” said Rep. Luis Gutiérrez (Ill.), who has threatened to leave the party if the DACA fix doesn’t pass.
“I think the fact that you have not heard from the Democratic Party, the Democratic caucus, from Democratic Party offices, you would think that there’d be hashtags galore supporting this effort — this unprecedented effort from Nancy Pelosi,” Gutierrez told reporters Thursday. “But it’s not a coordinated effort, is it? So it makes me fearful that tomorrow the reason there isn’t a coordinated effort is that nobody wants to show their hand.”
Democrats are rightfully incensed at Pelosi for taking the reigns on a concerted effort and derailing what liberals have carefully schemed to fulfill. However, her unhinged efforts perfectly showcase that the Democratic Party couldn’t care less about Americans when there is a personal political gain to be had.
