House Speaker Nancy Pelosi instantly regretted a key mistake that threatens to redefine the 2020 election.
Pelosi let her hatred for Donald Trump overwhelm all common sense.
And Nancy Pelosi just insulted dead veterans with this jaw-dropping attack.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi set the pace for the Democrats’ response to Donald Trump ordering a drone strike that eliminated the Islamic Revolutionary Guards’ Quds Force General Qassem Soleimani.
Americans could not believe the statement Pelosi put out on Soleimani’s death.
Speaker Pelosi didn’t even pretend to be happy that the world’s number one terrorist was killed.
Instead, Pelosi released a statement blasting Donald Trump for taking out Soleimani – whose killing none other than General David Petraeus said was more significant than taking out Osama bin Laden.
“American leaders’ highest priority is to protect American lives and interests. But we cannot put the lives of American service members, diplomats and others further at risk by engaging in provocative and disproportionate actions. Tonight’s airstrike risks provoking further dangerous escalation of violence. America – and the world – cannot afford to have tensions escalate to the point of no return.
“The Administration has conducted tonight’s strikes in Iraq targeting high-level Iranian military officials and killing Iranian Quds Force Commander Qasem Soleimani without an Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF) against Iran. Further, this action was taken without the consultation of the Congress.
“The full Congress must be immediately briefed on this serious situation and on the next steps under consideration by the Administration, including the significant escalation of the deployment of additional troops to the region.”
Soleimani was responsible for the deaths of over 600 American soldiers in Iraq.
Pelosi spit on their memories and the grief their families felt by not even acknowledging this fact.
But Pelosi’s comments also highlight the box Democrats are in for the 2020 election.
By all measures America is doing well.
The economy is booming and in recent months Donald Trump gave the orders for military operations that took out the leader of ISIS and the architect of Iran’s network of terrorist proxies.
Democrats can’t even cheer America succeeding because they hate Donald Trump.
Most normal Americans reject this obscene level of partisan hatred.
Top Democrat Presidential contenders Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren smeared the American military as bloodthirsty killers by claiming the United States government “assassinated” Soleimani.
Democrats are now rooting for Iranian retaliation because it would make Donald Trump’s decision to take out a murderous terrorist look bad.
That isn’t patriotism.
When Barack Obama ordered the Navy SEAL mission that resulted in the death of Osama bin Laden, Republicans didn’t whine about the consequences.
They celebrated the Commander-in-Chief giving the military the order that brought the ultimate justice to the mastermind of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
But that love of country is clearly missing from Nancy Pelosi and her fellow Demcorats.
