Pelosi’s Impeachment Day Outfit Simply an Attempt to Stifle Democrats’ Glee

For nearly the entirety of this impeachment process, Nancy Pelosi has had to work overtime to keep her Democratic colleagues from gloating.

Madam Speaker has relentlessly reminded the nation that this is a “somber” and “prayerful” situation, and not one to be undertaken with joy or bombast.

Of course, no one told freshman Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib this when she proclaimed, on the day of her inauguration into the House of Representatives, that she was going to “impeach the motherf***er”.

With impeachment a certainty on Wednesday morning, Pelosi arrived to work dressed as though she was attending a funeral – likely in an attempt to remind her liberal underlings to keep their smiles at bay.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and several other female House Democrats are wearing black attire in an effort to show Wednesday’s scheduled impeachment vote is a “somber day.”

CNN Chief Political Correspondent Dana Bash tweeted that Pelosi conveyed to her that she “feels sad” over today’s vote as she walked into the House chamber while House Democrats debate impeachment.

“As she walked into the house chamber @SpeakerPelosi told me she ‘feels sad,’” wrote Bash, before adding in a subsequent tweet: “@SpeakerPelosi is wearing black. One of her colleagues told me several of the female Democrats did that intentionally to signal it is a somber day.”

Then, when it was time to call the role for the final votes on the two articles of impeachment before them, Pelosi was forced to literally admonish her flock when they began to cheer…all while holding back a smirk of her own.

So much for somber.
