Donald Trump Jr.’s reaction to Paul Pelosi’s attack shows exactly how low we have sunk
Paul Pelosi’s speech on Monday, which was the most powerful speech she has given since becoming the Speaker of the House, was a very, very powerful speech. And I’m not just talking about the content of the speech, but about the fact that it was delivered by a woman. It was also delivered by a woman who was first elected to Congress at the age of 25.
It was delivered by a young woman. And yet the president of the United States came out and told the world in essence, “Oh, geez, you can’t talk that way about me because I’m a man.” That’s how low we have sunk.
Here is Paul Pelosi in the full speech:
You have been warned. I’m not asking you to follow me here and we don’t have a constitutional crisis. But you have been warned and you have heard this before. You can not attack the president of the United States in the way that you have been criticizing me. And when you do so, this becomes a constitutional crisis — which we have had before.
Now, you have been warned. But the president of the United States has said, “If I’m attacked, I will sue you.” So I have been warned. But I am asking you, ladies and gentlemen, to stop attacking me in the way that you are attacking me.
Do not attack me from the left. Do not attack me from the right. Do not attack me from the center. Just stop attacking me from the left. And start attacking me from the right. Because what they are trying to do is distract from their own failure. And that failure is that they have failed to stand up to the president of the United States in the way that they were supposed to. And they have given up their basic responsibilities.
What this is about is that the president of the United States says, “You’re not allowed to take pictures of my inauguration. In fact, if you do, I’ll sue you.” That is why they are attacking me. And why they are attacking me is that we need to stand up to the president and we need to stop him.
Now, that is exactly
