Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi has been having a very tough time as of late. First, her close friend Hillary Clinton surprisingly lost the Presidential election to Donald Trump. Then, she nearly lost her plum position as Democratic minority leader when a rival Democrat from Ohio made a very convincing case that she was out of touch.
Now Pelosi clearly seems to be losing whatever mental sharpness she once possessed. She recently tried to slam President-Elect Trump for refuting the CIA’s claim that Russia hacked the election, but she ended up making a huge blunder that blew up in her face.
Trump criticized the intelligence community by saying, “These are the same people that said Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction. The election ended a long time ago in one of the biggest Electoral College victories in history. It’s now time to move on and ‘Make America Great Again.’”
Said Pelosi recently to MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell, “He [Trump] returned with, ‘well, people told us that Saddam Hussein had—Iraq had weapons of mass destruction’. It did not. The intelligence community never said that.” She blamed it on Bush and Cheney, saying, “It was a massive misrepresentation to the American people. But there’s nothing in the intelligence to support the threat that Bush-Cheney was presenting,” Pelosi claimed.”
People with half a brain quickly pointed out how wrong Pelosi was. They pointed out that the very first unclassified finding of the 2002 National Intelligence Estimate was: “We judge that Iraq has continued its weapons of mass destruction (WMD) programs in defiance of UN resolutions and restrictions. Baghdad has chemical and biological weapons as well as missiles with ranges in excess of UN restrictions; if left unchecked, it probably will have a nuclear weapon during this decade.” Do you think Nancy has lost it?
