Trouble in Paradise, Nancy? When a 60 Minute interview started asking uncomfortable questions, Pelosi threw AOC & Co. under the bus.
It makes you wonder who is really running her party.
When Lesley Stahl asked some probing questions about whether there is any problem keeping the widening gulf between Democrat factions in line, her answer seemed a little… forced.
Almost like she was trying to convince herself, eh?
Does Pelosi even know what her party believes? Or is she desperately trying to keep them from swinging so far to the left that the party ‘McGoverns’ itself in 2020 the way it did in 1984?
Stahl didn’t seem to be buying what Pelosi was selling:
“You have these wings, AOC and her group on one side,” Stahl told Pelosi, to which the 79-year-old replied: “That’s like five people.”
“No, it’s the progressive group, it’s more than five,” the interviewer pushed back. Pelosi contended that she herself is a progressive.
The speaker added that she believes Congressional Democrats “by and large … know that we have to hold the center, that we have to go down the mainstream,” and said she “reject[s] socialism as an economic system.”
“If people have that view, that’s their view,” she said. “That is not the view of the Democratic Party.”
Did Nancy not get the memo? Last we checked, Socialism is a big part of the platform the 2020 hopefuls are building their run on. How can it NOT be part of the ‘Democratic Party’s view’?
Is it possible the party has swung so far left it’s leaving Pelosi behind?
Hardly surprising — revolutions have a long history of devouring their leaders.
