For all the openly professed loathing the mainstream media aims at Donald Trump, it must in some way kill them to know they’re not allowed to really hit back at his liberal counterparts. After all, they do play for the same team.
So when Nancy Pelosi, the House Speaker demands that an MSNBC host not ask her whether or not she believes Joe Biden’s Tara Reade denial, it isn’t shocking at all that neither the host, nor his behind-the-curtains bosses, chose not to push back.
Just imagine the media reaction, if a certain “Orange Man Bad” dared to order a reporter not to ask him a question again: particularly one pertaining to “believe all women.”
Anyway, when Pelosi was asked on MSNBC, whether she believes Biden or not, this was her uncategorical reiteration: “I believe him when he says it didn’t happen; but I also believe him when he said let them look into the records. And that’s what they should do.”
The Nagging of Nancy
None of this is new, however. This is what Pelosi said last week. She believes Biden, not Reade. She believes the man who she believes will defeat Donald Trump in November; not the woman playing spoiler.
This line however, came out of nowhere: “But I’m not going to answer this question again” she said with toothy grin, a picture of passive aggressiveness. The awkward look on the anchor’s face was priceless. He was caught between a rock of having grandma emasculate him on live television, and a hard place of knowing there was nothing he could do about it. I almost felt sorry for him. Almost.
Grandma Nancy though continued without missing a beat: “I will just say I have every confidence that Joe Biden will be a great President of the United States.” she said.
Fox News’ Outnumbered show then rolled footage of Pelosi in 2018. Way back then she led the believe all women charge. Said Pelosi when women did not accuse Biden: “We’re here to show our respect for all women who have a case. Have it respected. Due process. Investigate. Find the truth. Not fear it.”
Whether Nancy Pelosi fears the truth or not is anyone’s guess at this point. What’s painstakingly obvious though is she has no regard for it.
