Nancy Pelosi Doesn't Know Who The Democratic Party Is Anymore

She's undermining her own caucus.

On Saturday, New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd published an interviewwith House Speaker Nancy Pelosi that reads like an excerpt from TheGreat Gatsby reimagined for the 21st century. In Dowd’s telling, Pelosi savored chocolates “with delight,” decked out in “purple Manolo heels” as she regaled Dowd with war stories about “her vineyard getaway in Napa” and the time U2′s lead singer attended a speech she gave in Ireland. 

“Bono came,” she told Dowd, apparently with a bright grin. “And that was really fabulous.”

Pelosi has had a rough go of it lately, and the Dowd interview is the strongest evidence yet that the most powerful Democrat in America is losing touch with the country. Pelosi dismissed calls to begin impeachment proceedings against President Donald Trump, claiming that Trump “self-impeaches” practically “every day” ― whatever that means. She downplayed former President Bill Clinton’s affair with a White House intern as “doing a dumb thing as a guy” ― a curious position in the Me Too era ― and suggested that Trump himself might have helped Democrats secure liberal priorities in a recent immigration bill had he not been so busy in North Korea.
