House Democrat Caucus Chair Hakeem Jeffries said, “Nancy Pelosi is a legendary speaker. One of the best who’s ever done it, ever, in the history of the republic. She certainly has my strong support. Whatever happens in the future is going to happen. During the Trump era, we’ve just been all trying to get to tomorrow. Now, we’re trying to get to Jan. 20, and it will be a new day in America.”
Fact check: we’re still in the Trump era, and will be for another four years.
As noted by Breitbart News, Pelosi’s nomination follows as House Democrats have managed to lose a net eight seats during the 2020 congressional election.
“The majority for Speaker Pelosi has really gotten in shambles here, and it’s going to be a lot more difficult for her to be able to hold onto her people, and I’m just excited to be a part of that,” said Republican Congresswoman-elect Yvette Herrell told Breitbart News Tonight. “It’s a beautiful thing because… she’s going to have such a slim margin, and I know that her members are very angry right now. They all felt that they were going to be protected; they were going to increase their numbers. It completely backfired,” Herrell added.
