Have you ever been “madder than hell?” Trey Gowdy has — at 80-year-old Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi.
The Fox News contributor and former Republican South Carolina representative appeared on the network Monday to talk about America’s impending coronavirus stimulus package.
For months, negotiations have been stalled, but now Nancy says she’s willing to endorse a smaller $900 billion version.
One of the reasons: Donald Trump, she indicated, won’t be president anymore.
On December 4th, Pelosi pushed out a pile of partisanship:
“That is a total game-changer — a new president and a new vaccine.”
In case you missed that:
“It’s for a shorter period of time. But that’s okay now, because we have a new president.”
Dana played a clip and put it to Trey — “It’s okay now, because there is a new president?”
Gowdy got gruff:
“It’s one of the dumbest — and also most despicable — things I have ever heard an alleged leader say, that because Joe Biden won, it’s okay to do it, but (not) if Donald Trump had won.”
Trey pointed out people are “suffering” and “in economic self-defense mode.”
He juxtaposed such with Nancy’s “notion that, somehow or another, because her team won in November, that she’s going to do something.”
And do you think the press would’ve had a cow, had a Republican made such a moove?
“What’s missing…is if Paul Ryan or John Boehner had said or done what she just said, there would be media outcry.”
The southerner’s sick over it:
“[W]hat other entity has commented on what the Speaker of the House just said? Because Biden won, we will do it. But while it was Trump, we weren’t going to give him a victory.”
Personally, I have a theory: Politics is a corrupt enterprise, and proof can be found on both sides of the aisle. But I believe Democrats have learned over time — there will be less consequence for more extreme or more radically wrong things asserted, so long as the media is mucho Left.
If they haven’t learned that, they’re not much looking around.
Trey’s peering into Pelosi, and he’s outraged:
“[I]t really is so outrageous.”
We appear to have reached a point of unprecedentedly partisan admission.
The gloves have come off.
And, ironically, so have the masks.
And it’s not just in politics, but the news.
Consider the following recent headlines:
None of those can be classified as objective.
I’d liken them to “Man is Accused of Murder, but He Totally Didn’t Do It.”
Everyone’s taking sides, and Nancy Pelosi’s never been one for the middle.
And Trey Gowdy — like a lot of folks during this difficult time of lockdown, light pockets, and lunacy — is hot as hades:
“It’s hard to get me upset, but what she just said makes me madder than hell.”
And if you’re steamed, too, you can all cool down. Nancy brought eminently icy news:
“Joe Biden committed to ending and crushing the virus. … (We now have) a president that recognizes that we need to depend on science to stop the virus.”
