House Speaker Rep. Nancy Pelosi is stoking fear among Democrat activists and voters, telling them that President Donald Trump will not accept an electoral loss in 2020.
The statement is particularly hilarious considering the fact that it is the Democrat Party that failed to accept the results of the last presidential election — and continues to do so. However, mainstream news outlets and millions of liberal voters are actually taking the Speaker of the House at her word and spreading fear in the hopes of increasing the Democrat voter turnout for the 2020 Presidential elections.
To back up her outlandish claims, the Speaker is stating that President Trump would have contested Democrat seats in the 2018 mid-term elections had the Democrats won back the House by only a few seats, and had those seats been won in closely-contested elections. However Mainstream news media outlets were quick to remind voters that the president jokingly told former Secretary of State Hilary Clinton that he would accept the 2016 presidential election results if he won.
In fact, given the current toxic political environment, it’s not hard to see why one party would contest the results of a close election. Democrat candidates in Florida did just that in 2018 when Republican candidates won a Senate seat and the governor’s house by a small margin.
Rep. Nancy Pelosi is stating that the President would seek to “poison the public’s mind” if he should lose. In other words, President Trump would tell his voters that the election wasn’t fair for one or more reasons. However, the House Speaker seems to have forgotten the fact that this is exactly what the Democratic Party has been doing since the 2016 election didn’t turn out the way it had hoped. In fact, Clinton recently told news outlets just a couple of days ago that it is possible to run a perfect election campaign and then have the election “stolen” from you.
Clinton isn’t the only Democrat who believes that elections aren’t fair unless they go the way they want them to. Stacey Abrams, who lost her 2018 bid to become the first African-American female governor of the state of Georgia, recently proclaimed that Democrats no longer have to concede elections if they don’t like the results.
By Nancy Pelosi’s own admission, her accusation that President Trump would fail to stand down after the 2020 presidential election if he loses is an attempt to motivate voters to turn out votes. At the same time, the Speaker is attempting to quell dissent in her own party, and hold off far-left lawmakers from once again attempting to impeach the President.
It remains to be seen if her desperate attempts to showcase the Democrat Party as responsible will be successful. In fact, it would seem that Rep. Pelosi’s recent statements will do her party more harm than good. Even many liberal voters don’t believe that the 2016 election was stolen, neither do they believe that President Trump will fail to step down in 2020. The fact remains, however, that Pelosi is at the mercy of her far-left base. She’ll say whatever she needs to in order to remain relevant. Perhaps this is one of those times…
