On Thursday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi compared Democrats’ impeachment inquiry to the American Revolution while speaking at the DNC Women’s Leadership Forum.
Pelosi quoted the words of author Thomas Paine, that he said during the “dark days if the revolution.”
“[Thomas Paine] said that the times have found us,” Pelosi stated. “The times have found us.”
“We think the times have found us now,” she continued. “Everyone in this room who sacrificed their time, resources and the rest…to be there for our candidates so that we can make a better future.”
“And, so here we are. None of us came to Congress to impeach a President — not anybody, not anybody,” she declared. “That’s not what we are about.”
“But, we did take an oath to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States,” Nancy proclaimed to the crowd as they applauded. Video Below
Nancy’s comparison to the American Revolution comes just one day after she and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer stormed out of a meeting with President Trump where they were discussing his decision to withdraw U.S. troops from northern Syria.
Schumer claimed in a press conference afterward that President Trump had a “meltdown” and was insulting to Pelosi as he allegedly called her a “third rate leader.” However President Trump suggested it was Nancy Pelosi who had a “meltdown” based on her behavior during the meeting.
In ending, we leave you with a tweet where Trump sheds light on what he thinks of Pelosi in the aftermath of his awkward meeting with her:
