Pelosi Advised Democrats to Deal With Trump Voters Like a Friend Who’s Dating a ‘Jerk’


House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has given some rather peculiar advice to Democrats on what their approach should be with Trump voters.

According to CNN’s Dana Bash, Pelosi told reporters today she drew the following comparison:

“It’s like telling your friend the guy she’s dating is a jerk. You can’t tell her that. She has to find out for herself. You can give her clues and then eventually one thing will lead to another, she’ll come to her conclusion. But if you tell her right up front, you’ll lose a friend. So we’re not interested in losing any friends. Let them find out.”

Pelosi also did have some critical words for “white educated women who voted against Hillary,” on a day when she and many other female members of Congress are wearing white as a symbolic show of support for women’s rights:
