GOP rep says Pelosi's quote about wanting to see Trump in prison is 'undignified'

2 min read

Uh … what? For God’s sake, irony has died more often in the past two and a half years than Dick Cheney’s fortnightly heart transplants.

Henceforth, “GOP” will stand for “Gaslighting, Oafish Pricks.”

Politico is reporting that Nancy Pelosi, still locked in a battle of wills with fellow Democrats over impeachment, recently told House Judiciary Chair Jerry Nadler that she preferred seeing Donald Trump defeated in 2020 and then forced to face the music after he loses:

Nadler pressed Pelosi to allow his committee to launch an impeachment inquiry against Trump — the second such request he’s made in recent weeks only to be rebuffed by the California Democrat and other senior leaders. Pelosi stood firm, reiterating that she isn’t open to the idea of impeaching Trump at this time.

“I don’t want to see him impeached, I want to see him in prison,” Pelosi said, according to multiple Democratic sources familiar with the meeting. Instead of impeachment, Pelosi still prefers to see Trump defeated at the ballot box and then prosecuted for his alleged crimes, according to the sources.

You can certainly take issue with Pelosi’s wait-and-see strategy — and many Democrats and progressives have done exactly that — but what you can’t do with a straight face is say shit like this:


I suppose the way to “dignify” it is to say it out in the open in front of a rabid rally crowd … and always in chant form.

Ye gods, these people really have no sense of shame or irony, do they?
