I haven’t seen the whole interview yet, but The Post has a top five points compilation up on YouTube:
I’m glad she said this:
“The Mueller report is about an attack on our elections by a foreign government. And we want to know about that. We want to know about that in terms of being able to prevent it from happening again. So it’s bigger even than Donald Trump.”
There was a tinge of sarcasm in that last sentence, as was fitting. She’s absolutely correct, and while I don’t think it was Trump’s strategy to make it all about himself (that’s his default setting), he largely succeeded, which is just one of the many ways he’s failed utterly to live up to the oath of office.
Anyhoo, boy, did Pelosi ever hit the nail on the head here, when asked to describe Trump’s abilities as president:
Pelosi: “I think that there’s nobody in the country who knows better that he should not be President of the United States than Donald Trump.”
Stahl: “You think he knows it himself?”
Pelosi: “I think he does, yeah.”
No wonder Trump rushed to Twitter to lamely attacked Pelosi as soon as he saw the program. The truth hurts.
On the future of the party, Pelosi said this:
I think our future is strong enough, is built on a strong enough foundation to withstand everything, including the current occupant of the White House. I don’t think for two terms, though.
Agree with that too.
Meanwhile, moments ago, Elizabeth Warren just busted out a plan to manage public lands. I don’t know if she’ll win the nomination, but she seems to be writing the 2020 party platform. Works for me!
