It would behoove the democrats to take a look in the rearview mirror as they move forward into the meat and potatoes of the 2020 election.
Just four years ago, in 2016, the left was absolutely certain that Hillary Clinton would be the next president of these United States. After all, this was a career politician whose power and influence had only grown greater through her role as Secretary of State. Furthermore, Clinton seemed nigh invincible after the FBI inexplicably refused to press charges against her at the conclusion of their investigation into her illegal, private email server.
The left was just sure of it, Hillary Clinton was going to be Number 45.
Spoiler alert: That didn’t happen, and the “resistance” was born of this shock and anger, thus thrusting the United States into the hyper-partisan hellscape that we endure today.
Well, wouldn’t you know it, that strange arrogance is back, and this time it’s the Speaker of the House who’s exuding it.
During an interview on MSNBC, Nancy Pelosi had the following to say:
While discussing strengthening the Affordable Care Act, Pelosi said, “When we win and I anticipate that we will win the House, and hopefully win the Senate and certainly win the White House — but in the course of all of that, let’s use our energy to have health care for all Americans.”
How quickly they forget.
Hillary Clinton was once inevitable, remember? There was just no way in which Donald Trump, of all people, was going to be the wrench in the Clinton family’s well-oiled gears.
Nancy Pelosi may think she’s in the democratic driver’s seat, but there’s an eighteen wheeler Trump truck in her blindspot.
