House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) had a meltdown over GOP lawmakers that supported the Texas election challenge struck down by the Supreme Court on Friday, accusing them of bringing “dishonor” on the House.
Pelosi issued a statement claiming victory after the high court rejected a lawsuit brought by Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton against Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin, alleging constitutional violations in their elections processes.
126 House Republicans signed on to the lawsuit this week, infuriating Pelosi — who already is losing her grip over the House.
“The Court has rightly dismissed out of hand the extreme, unlawful and undemocratic GOP lawsuit to overturn the will of millions of American voters,” Pelosi said in a press release.
“The 126 Republican Members that signed onto this lawsuit brought dishonor to the House,” she frothed. “Instead of upholding their oath to support and defend the Constitution, they chose to subvert the Constitution and undermine public trust in our sacred democratic institutions.”
Pelosi went on to order the insubordinate Republicans to focus on COVID-19 — ironic since she’s the one that has been stalling a relief bill since May — calling on them to “end their election subversion – immediately.”
President Trump responded to the SCOTUS rejection of the massive lawsuit with disappointment, tweeting that “The Supreme Court really let us down. No Wisdom, No Courage!”
