In the aftermath of the 2016 election the Democrats were scrambling to find someone to stand up to Donald Trump. Trump was a new breed of politician and the Dems needed a new kind of head donkey.
Despite her age and role as a magnet for conspiracy theories and inflammatory content, Nancy Pelosi managed to emerge relatively unscathed even after repeated attacks on social media.
As the months went by Pelosi gained power and placed more and more distance between her and her would be challengers until she emerged as the chief foil to Donald Trump.
The two of them tumbled into the heart of the media whirlwind that survives to this day. His confrontational manner combined with her incomprehensible political contradictions have infected every media broadcast since.
President Donald Trump has repeatedly shamed himself and his ancestors with his opprobrious tweets. If his disinformation were not so vernal and vain it could be quite dangerous and effective mass manipulation.
Pelosi continues to prove that she was less a step is a step in the right direction and more akin to being stuck in a deep rut.
She highlights the problem of implementing proactive policies that solve problems that do not exist.
She waited on the impotent mueller report, repeatedly hesitated on impeachment, stutters like she’s on golden pond, has feuded with AOC, and has been generally less an effective adversary and more an illusion of opposition.
Donald Trump’s unprecedented attack on political convention has sparked an era of global conflict on almost every continent. It is also a turning point for the new generation.
The Democratic Party must find new leadership, either in the 2020 nominee or in a different congresswoman.
