After another failed election, Nancy Pelosi finally stepped down as Democrat Leader in the House.
For the first time in 20 years, Democrats settled on a new face for the Party in Congress.
And Nancy Pelosi’s replacement got called one name that led to this insane response.
Democrats unanimously voted to select New York Congressman Hakeem Jeffries as their new House Minority Leader.
Republicans immediately blasted the choice as irresponsible.
Even RINO Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell mocked Jeffries as an election denier for his past attacks on the legitimacy of the 2016 Presidential election.
“The newly elected incoming leader of House Democrats is a past election denier who basically said the 2016 election was ‘illegitimate’ and suggested that we had a ‘fake President,’” McConnell declared. “He’s also mounted reckless attacks on our independent judiciary and said that Justices who he didn’t like have ‘zero legitimacy.’”
Indeed, Jeffries undermined democracy and tried to subvert the American government by falsely calling Donald Trump a fake President and claiming that the 2016 election was illegitimate.
Jeffries helped spread the Big Lie that Trump and the Russians colluded to steal the Presidency.
History will never accept you as a legitimate President.

The corporate-controlled media quickly jumped in to defend Jeffries, with TIME Magazine publishing an absurd piece claiming that election denial is different when Democrats do it and is therefore ok.
“Calling Jeffries an ‘election denier’ is misleading and conflates different issues. Casting unfounded doubt on the outcome of an election is irresponsible when either Party does it,” Rachel Orey, associate director of the Elections Project at the Bipartisan Policy Center said.
“But I think it’s important to remember that the culture around elections was quite different before 2020,” TIME Magazine’s Jasmine Aguilera wrote.
The selection of Jeffries followed by the corporate-controlled media’s defense of his lies only showed just how hollow the Democrats’ claims that election denying Republicans would end American democracy in the Midterms truly were.
It was nothing more than a cheap, partisan talking point that Democrats and the media knew had no basis in reality.
