Pelosi claims victory in aftermath of election, despite narrowing margin of Democrat majority

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) ended speculation that her far-left agenda caused Democrats to suffer shocking losses in the 2020 election by rejecting the claims and instead, declaring victory for retaining control of the House.

After multiple Democrat representatives lost their seats and many more only narrowly kept theirs, Pelosi was attacked by some of her more moderate colleagues for capitulating to the “defund the police” movement and not pushing back against socialism.

Democrats expected a blue wave to sweep the nation, further securing their legislative power, but the results of the election were far from a victory for House Democrats. The GOP added over a dozen pro-life women to the House and Democrats lost at least six seats overall.

Pelosi refused to acknowledge the trend, however, telling Capitol Hill reporters that “I accept credit for winning the majority and holding the House,” and rejected accusations that her leadership caused the margins of the Democrat majority to shrink.

“We lost a few seats,” Pelosi admitted. “But, as I said, we won those seats in Trump districts, he wasn’t on the ballot, he is now. I do believe with Biden in the White House and a Democratic Congress and hopefully a Democratic Senate, we’ll see in January, we’ll be able to do great things for the American people.”

“As I said, we’ve lost some battles, but we won the war,” she continued. “We have the gavel. We have the gavel.” Pelosi promised before the election that Democrats would increase their majority by “double-digits” — which she clearly failed to do.

Rep. Abigail Spanberger (D-VA) made headlines last week when she told Democrat leadership that the party’s failure to increase their majority was a result of far-left tactics that American voters want no part of.

“No one should say ‘defund the police’ ever again,” Spanberger declared “Nobody should be talking about socialism,” adding that if Democrats try the tactic again, “we will get f—— torn apart.”

Pelosi appears unbothered by the tenuous grasp Democrats now have of the House and the growing concerns of moderate Democrats, declaring that a Biden presidency will provide her with all the leverage she needs to accomplish her goals.

“We had a very big win in the last election, it is smaller now,” she said. “We still have the power of the majority, but on top of that our leverage and our power is greatly enhanced by having a Democratic president in the White House.”

Why do you feel the need to use misleading titles for these articles? It always seems to be “Pelosi is done, or Pelosi is through” when that i snot even close to the content of the article. Very irritating for sure.

Pelosi is the queen of mean, she only sees to herself and her rich friends. Dang I almost forgot her friends from China and her part with hunter biden,they made a lot of money to get President Trump out. Of course there are the media, billionaires, they like to meddle in everything, because they can, guess they are like spoiled kids.

Jon, I totally agree with you. The sensationalizing of the News Article is just to get our attention and has nothing to do with the content. It’s just a journalist tool to get more people to read the article, and show his editor what a success they are, when they really aren’t. I truly hope that one day soon, when they say “Pelosi is Done”, it will be the truth. It will be the start of the divisive healing that needs to occur, for all our sake.

Don’t worry in twenty two the old hag will lose the gavel, conservatives will take back the house, and we will have a triumvirate, and the communists will be out for a long time.
In the mean time be mean. Get the lawyers and the judges ready, and every time Biden or Harris writes an EO take them to court, get an injunction. Keep them tied up in court.

If you were really helping, why don’t you make it to where schools aren’t aloud to diagnose kids with disabilities when they struggle with things like math, especially someone like myself who is totally blind.
Nancy, you really need to retire!

Pelosi definitely needs to be removed from speaker of the house she caused major problems blocking this blocking that she couldn’t think of anything but impeaching trump. Now rumor has it that she an her squad are working on plans to impeach Amy coney Barrett doesn’t she an her squad have anything better to do than waste tax payers money a plan to persecute trump Schumer. An schiff should go to an anybody else who was involved in the attempt to paersecute trump. We need people who stand for the people not people who they paid with promises an money to to vote for Biden with the money spent wasting time persecuting trump with Clinton’s help they could have finished the wall an it will be needed the future will prove that an defunding the police we need them an the military our life’s may depend on it

What concerns me is having a president that has been dealing inappropriately with other countries. Will he sell the nuclear codes to a foreign power. Would he be selling our tech to adversaries. This is a great concern when dealing with someone that is mentally challenged.

Pelosi is so delusional. She thinks she is the queen of the house and acts like it. A dictator in fact. She threatened to withhold any DNC money from any house democrats that didn’t vote for her Trump impeachment. Proves she is not above blackmailing. Typical of the radical left.
