There’s nothing quite as satisfying as seeing a greedy, big government politician get taken to task by an average, ordinary, hard working American citizen.It’s even more delicious when that politician is House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi.
During a recent CNN town hall, a man who owns a small business in West Hollywood took Pelosi to the woodshed after calling into question the left’s sudden outrage over the firing of FBI Director James Comey.According to The Blaze:
Jake Lee began his question by noting that Democrats called on Comey to resign last year after he informed Congress just days before the November election that his agency had discovered potentially new evidence in the bureau’s criminal investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server while secretary of state.
“Now that [Comey] has been let go, why the sudden and selective outrage from your side of the aisle?” Lee pressed.“I never said he should be fired,” Pelosi told Lee, explaining that she didn’t think Comey could take the “heat” that came with being FBI director.
Pelosi said it’s “distressing” that Trump would, by his own admission, dismiss Comey because he became “tired” of the FBI’s investigation related to his campaign.
“We believe that the FBI as being an independent law enforcement agency to be respected, and [the director should] not to be fired by the president because he’s tired of an investigation they’re doing,” Pelosi said.The House Democratic leader said it was the “nature” and “timing” of Trump’s decision to fire Comey that should have Americans worried, noting that if Trump truly was concerned over how Comey handled the Bureau’s case against Clinton, he could have fired Comey “a long time ago.”
CNN host Chris Cuomo, who moderated the town hall, then steered the discussion in a different direction, while Pelosi failed to address Lee’s question head on. In the end, Pelosi only explained why Democrats are outraged at Comey’s firing now, but never explained the reason why Democrats flipped flopped on Comey.
It should be obvious by this time, that liberals are opportunists who will change their belief system to suit whatever is happening at the moment, as a means of pushing their agenda to the masses.When Comey had his sights set on Hillary for her email fiasco, he was public enemy number one, a dastardly fellow worthy of scorn, scrutiny, and calls for being put out to pasture.
Once Trump was stuck in the cross-hairs, they became Comey’s biggest supporters, being willing to go to bat for the man as they see him as a potential weapon to help undo all that Trump is attempting to accomplish, holding on to the hope that maybe, just maybe, there is a dirty little secret that will get the president impeached.
The hypocrisy stinks to high heaven, but what’s new when we’re talking about the left?
