On Fox News’ Outnumbered on Monday, host Kennedy explained that last week’s special election in Georgia was supposed to be a referendum on President Trump, according to the Democrats. But it may have turned out to be a rejection of longtime House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi instead of President Trump as the GOP repeatedly tied Democratic candidate Jon Ossoff to Nancy Pelosi and Republican Karen Handel ultimately came out the victor.
According to The Hill, the Republicans plan to use Pelosi against Democrats in future elections.
There have been a number of calls for the House Minority Leader to step down following the Democrats’ devastating loss in Georgia’s sixth congressional district. But Pelosi has implied that she is not going anywhere, even claiming to be “worth the trouble”.
“I’m a master legislator. I am a strategic, politically astute leader,” Pelosi said at a press conference last week. “My leadership is recognized by many around the country, and that is why I’m able to attract the support that I do.”
Kennedy disagrees with Pelosi’s assessment that she is “worth the trouble”, claiming that it is a bad sign for the Democrats when the party leader in the House is being openly criticized and opposed by members of her own party:
“Pelosi is so incredibly out of touch that there are people in her own party, part of her caucus, who have not been there for too many years, who are in open revolt.”
“She’s like a zombie vampire. She uses the House as her personal icy crypt, and says, ‘You can take my scepter from my cold, undead hand,'” Kennedy said. “And that is not acceptable for a majority of voters in this country.”
According to Kennedy, “People are no longer loyal to politicians or to Democrats or to Republicans because they feel both parties have not been loyal to them or to their families.”
