Trump Derangement Syndrome seems to be taking it’s toll on Nancy Pelosi.
On Friday she gave a speech for Families USA, a left leaning activist group fighting against the repeal of the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare). During her presentation she began repeating words, looking dazed and confused and asking the audience to please clap. She also mistakenly called John Kasich the Governor of Illinois, instead of Ohio.
The California Senator started her rambling rant by thanking the guy who introduced her for “recanting what happened at the time” the Dems and other liberal activists shoved Obamacare down Americans’ throats without even reading the bill and without the support of a single Republican.
She told the story about how she and her fellow Democrats were jazzed that the Affordable Care Act was going to be such a huge achievement for government programs, and “stand there with Social Security and Medicare and Medicare,” when she probably meant to say “Medicaid.”
She shamelessly patronized the crowd with her giant lumps of glowing praise of Families USA.
During an awkward moment when the crowd apparently forgot to clap when she congratulated them for HER work she groveled, “When I said we could not have done it without Families USA, that is an applause line for you.”
She coaxed them again shouting, “Applause line!” after she mentioned that she looked forward to continuing to work with the activist group.
Then she went all philosophical and tried to share what she believed was a deep thoght.
“By the way, do you know who the poorest people in America are? Infants and children. Infants and children,” she squeeled.
Then Pelosi felt she should inject some bi-partisan support for Medicaid into the conversation, she said, “Don’t take it from me. John Kasich, the governor of Illinois said, ‘Thank God for Medicaid.’”
Kasich of course is governor of Ohio — another flyover state that starts with a vowel in the eyes of a West Coast liberal.
Pelosi was either over-botoxed or just plain Trumped up when she booted MLK’s name, calling him “Martin Luther Sing.”
But in the end the mind-numbed activists gave the House Minority Leader a Standing-O.
