Whether she’s playing her role to the end or is truly that disconnected from reality, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-Calif.) disbelief that “anybody would vote for these people” while referring to Republicans hinted at exactly how the Democrats set themselves up for massive losses on November 8.
While speaking with The New York Times for an interview with Chief Washington correspondent Carl Hulse, which even he portrayed as abrasive, the congresswoman appeared not to divert from the focus of fundraising and the Democrats’ main touchstone for the midterms, abortion.
As she smeared Republicans’ campaign strategy as “endless lying and endless money,” she evidently didn’t wish to give the reporter the courtesy of an interview, lamenting, “My time is money.”
The clipped remark may have meant to convey the importance of garnering campaign donations as the speaker flitted throughout the country with her hand out to wealthy allies, but it just as easily represented the closing window before Pelosi is set to lose the perks of being third in line to the president.
Rejecting the data presented to her that highlighted the incumbent president’s party typically loses ground in the midterms, and with the slimmest of margins that trend all but assured Republicans taking control, the California lawmaker said, “Part of it is, I cannot believe anybody would vote for these people.”
Meanwhile, she referred to herself stating “the urgency of saving our democracy is real,” as being a “fearmonger” while insisting “your right to choose is on the ballot.”
“What right does a judge or a member of Congress have to come to the kitchen table of America’s families and weigh in on size and time of the family?” she argued.
This from the same woman who, while Americans were forced to stay home as states mandated their places of business close, defied rules for the little people to get her hair done at a salon and bragged about her stockpile of expensive ice cream in her $24,000 refrigerator.

Her disconnect remained intact recently on CBS’s “Face the Nation” when she continued the spin away from the economic crisis and parsed an argument contending, “The fight is not about inflation. It’s about the cost of living.”
‘Change that subject!’ Pelosi’s mad that people are worried about inflation, so poof, it’s gone https://t.co/MVKDWafDSu

“Must be nice to be wealthy and privileged enough that she doesn’t feel the impact of inflation. This woman has no care whatsoever for low and middle income Americans,” one person reacted. “How’s that for changing the topic Nancy?”
While it is easy to point to President Joe Biden as the head of the Democrats for leading to this point where Fox News projects at least a 15-seat majority for Republicans and others expect up to a 40-seat swing to the right, there is more than enough blame to go around for the progressives and Pelosi presided over what legislation would be brought to the floor for votes.
