Pelosi issues surprise endorsement of Joe Kennedy against Dem Senator Ed Markey

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) stunned Democrats on Thursday by endorsing Rep. Joe Kennedy III’s (D-MA) primary challenge of incumbent Senator Ed Markey (D-MA) — one of the most progressive legislators in the Senate.

The move infuriated the progressive contingent of the Democrat party, causing leftist pundits and politicians to explode in anger against the Democrat establishment — of which the Kennedy family has been a member for decades.

Pelosi’s move was shocking for a number of reasons, one of the most prominent being that Pelosi has discouraged primary challenges of incumbent Democrats for years.

“Never before have the times demanded we elect courageous leaders as today. And that is why Iโ€™m proud to endorse Joe Kennedy for Senate,โ€ Pelosi said in a video statement announcing her endorsement on Thursday. “He knows that to achieve progressive change, you must be on the front lines leading movements of people.”

Kennedy and Markey are nearly tied with only weeks to go in the contentious primary, and Pelosi’s endorsement could tip the scales against Markey.

Pelosi’s surprise endorsement sparked major backlash from leftists, highlighting a growing rift within the party that is becoming more apparent by the day.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) tweeted on Thursday “No one gets to complain about primary challenges again,” showing remarkable restraint, considering the fact that Markey is one of her strongest backers in the Senate.

Progressive Super-PAC Justice Democrats, a backer of far-left progressives like Ocasio-Cortez, was more forthcoming with its criticism of Pelosi. “Nancy Pelosi’s endorsement of Joe Kennedy makes one thing clear: there’s one set of rules for progressives and another for the party establishment. It’s hypocrisy,” the organization tweeted.

    1. If this is true, this is hypocrisy at it’s best. How does it feel. She is your “romney”!!!!!

      1. Which Kennedy, who knows. May be the Rep. but that would really be a three “finger” drink….

  1. Was she sober ?? I doubt it. She is usually out of sync with the world especially when she has to make “an important statement.” Wise up America. This dumb drunken broad is still trying to appear to be relevant. Can’t happen because she doesn’t know where she is or what she’s saying most of the time. Watch her eyes. Watch her trembling hands.

    1. And listen to her when she sucks on her teeth to keep them from falling out….oh yeah…still chews her cud…..why…?….Oh yeah cause she is a cow

  2. He’s a Kennedy, the chief womanizers of the Democrat party. Where else would Slick Willie get the idea you can be married and dip the wick everywhere else and still be above reproach. And you can let a pregnant girl drown and have the money and power to have it covered up. The root of their evil was the patriarch Joseph Kennedy Sr. Right up Nancy’s alley.

    1. I don’t know maybe cause Trump keeps her flying back and forth between Ca. and D.C., don’t you just love it.
      Chick-a-boom chick-a-boom chick-a-boom boom boom.

    1. I am voting for President Trump as well. I am also working with several committees to get as many Conservative as possible elected and re-elected. I have harsh feelings about many on the left, which so deserves the scorn and condemnation.
