Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats know they are facing an uphill battle in November.
Americans were wondering what the future holds for Nancy Pelosi.
And you won’t believe how CNN reacted to Nancy Pelosi’s shocking announcement.
On Tuesday, Nancy Pelosi announced that she would run for re-election in 2022.
Even though the corporate-controlled media is in the back pocket of the Democrats, CNN didn’t respond to Nancy Pelosi’s announcement in the usual way.
CNN’s Bakari Sellers quickly pointed out that even though Pelosi said she was running for re-election to Congress, she didn’t say she was seeking another term as Speaker of the House.
Sellers took this as a signal from Nancy Pelosi that it was time for Democrats to move on from her 20-year reign as their leader.
“She didn’t say that she was going to run for Speaker, I don’t believe. I think she just announced she’s running for re-election. I firmly believe that it’s time for new leadership in the House Democratic caucus. I think it’s time for new leadership throughout the Democratic Party. Not only do we have to get younger but more vibrant and have bigger and bolder ideas to bring in a new generation of voters,” Sellers began.
Citing Pelosi ramming Obamacare and Joe Biden’s $1.9 trillion Blue State bailout bill into law, Sellers outrageously claimed Pelosi is the greatest House Speaker in American history.
“I will also say in the same breath Nancy Pelosi will go down in history as the greatest Speaker of all time. Whether or not you’re talking about ushering a country through Covid or passing Obamacare or the Affordable Care Act. So, her legacy is already written. But there comes a time, whether or not you’re Nancy Pelosi, or whether or not you’re Tom Brady, that sometimes you have to hang up the cleats when it comes to being leader of your particular Party or leader of your organization,” Sellers added.
However, Sellers admitted that Pelosi oversaw crushing electoral defeats in the 2004, 2010, 2014, 2016, and 2020 elections for the U.S. House.
Sellers also noted that since Pelosi’s leadership team of Steny Hoyer and Jim Clyburn are all in their 80s, they need to recognize it’s time for them to step aside and pass the torch to the next generation of Democrat leaders.
“I think she recognizes that. Part of being a great leader is knowing when it is time to turn the reins over. I think that she, Steny Hoyer, Jim Clyburn, all need to usher in new leadership. I’m not saying they should not run for reelection for the House but usher in new leadership to guide us into the new century,” Sellers concluded.
