House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi proved her clairvoyance after Democrats took back the House majority following her bold prediction last week. Now, Pelosi is celebrating the candidates that got them there, many of whom are women.

“Women led the way to victory, with at least 30 new women coming to the Congress,” Pelosi said in a press conference on Wednesday. “Is that not exciting?”


While not all of the new women coming into the House and Senate are Democrats, the majority of them are. But Pelosi expressed hope that the role of women in entering Congress would expand everywhere and not just places like childcare where women politicians traditionally focus.

“We view every issue as a women’s issue,” Pelosi said, adding she wants to see women take the lead in places like national security, economy, and energy.

“In all of those issues, I want women to take ownership of what we could traditionally not.”


President Donald Trump expressed on Twitter Wednesday that he would like to see Pelosi take up her old position as Speaker of the House. “In all fairness, Nancy Pelosi deserves to be chosen Speaker of the House by the Democrats.” he wrote. “If they give her a hard time, perhaps we will add some Republican votes. She has earned this great honor!”

Pelosi told reporters she would like to take on the role of Speaker again, but she disagreed with the president on why.

“I don’t think anybody deserves anything,” she stated. “It’s not what you have done, it’s what you can do. I think I’m the best person to come forward, to unify, to negotiate.”


Pelosi might face some competition from her colleagues. However, it may prove difficult to unseat the first woman ever to serve as speaker of the House.

Nancy Lugosi. Your necromancers will not be able to repair the tendons you tear patting yourself on the back.

So not being able to spell your name in the snow and ovaries are MORE important to you than actual qualifications? Noted. What’s next, running people by skin color or sexual orientation? Oh wait, that’s totally Dim doctrine.

Here’s a clue. If you and your motley crew fail to do your jobs, then that’s expected. Your next-gen people are socialists which won’t fly outside
