Wednesday at the National Action Network Legislative & Policy Conference, House Leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) thanked the organization’s founder Al Sharpton for “saving America” by helping Democrats win the majority in the House of Representatives.
“Thank you for helping take back America,” Pelosi said. “People all over the place are calling me, writing, in airports, here and there, saying, ‘Thank you for saving America.’ I give those thanks to you. Thank you for saving America. Reverend Sharpton, thank you for saving America.”
She went on to say that the Democrats in the House are “going to be unifying,” “healing,” and “respectful of other views,” but where they can’t find common ground with Republicans, she promises the Democrats will “stand our ground like a rock. That’s what Thomas Jefferson advised us to do.”
