As if we need more proof that democrats react hysterically to anything Donald Trump does, there is Nancy Pelosi’s unbelievable evolution on Rex Tillerson. When Trump nominated Tillerson for Secretary of State, Pelosi called him a puppet of the Russian government. Now that the President has fired Tillerson, Pelosi claims he was the victim of Russian puppeteering. In other words, whatever Trump does is bad and must be the result of Vladimir Putin’s control over the President.
Back in December of 2016, when Trump first nominated Tillerson for SoS, Pelosi let loose this unhinged statement:
Choosing an oil executive friendly with Vladimir Putin as Secretary of State sends a disturbing signal about President-elect Trump’s priorities. Rex Tillerson’s cozy relationship with the Kremlin is especially alarming in light of his attitude toward sanctions over Russia’s aggressive behavior in Europe, while at the same time the President-elect continues to side with Russia over the judgment of the U.S. intelligence community.
Fawning over Putin is poor preparation for being the top diplomat of the United States of America.
You got that? Rex Tillerson has a cozy relationship with Putin, fawns over the Russian president, and is basically his puppet. Now let’s fast forward a year and some change to check out Pelosi’s statement on Tillerson’s firing on Tuesday:
Secretary Tillerson’s firing sets a profoundly disturbing precedent in which standing up for our allies against Russian aggression is grounds for a humiliating dismissal. President Trump’s actions show that every official in his Administration is at the mercy of his personal whims and his worship of Putin.
See, now Pelosi claims that Tillerson was standing up to Russia and because Trump does Putin’s bidding, he fired the Secretary of State. How does this work? First Tillerson basically was a Russian agent and now he’s a brave American who was fighting against Russia.
As I said, that’s quite the evolution on Pelosi’s part. The best thing about this is that Pelosi left her original statement on Tillerson up on her website even though it directly contradicts her statement today. It takes some big brass balls to be that full of shit. Either that or some serious dementia.
In Pelosi’s defense, she does seem to be suffering from some sort of degenerative brain disease that severely effects her memory. Hell, she still thinks George W. Bush is president. I’m surprised she didn’t accuse Bush of being in cahoots with Boris Yeltsin over the firing of Colin Powell.
I looked through Pelosi’s archives to pinpoint the exact moment that she went from thinking Tillerson was a Russian stooge to him being a Russian ass-kicker and it appears to be today. She never indicated in any other statements that Tillerson was anything but a Putin fanboy until he was fired by President Trump. That leads me to believe her newfound respect for Tillerson is based entirely on her hatred of Trump.
No matter what the President does the democrats are going to scream that it’s the worst thing anyone has ever done. They cried that Trump’s tough talk on North Korea was going to lead to nuclear war and said diplomacy was the key. Now that North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un wants to meet with Trump and talk about disarming their nuclear capabilities the democrats are saying Trump shouldn’t negotiate with the rogue state.
This is a just a long way of saying democrats are completely full of crap. They don’t have any ideas, solutions, or valid points. All they have is Trump-hate and that’s a pretty sad foundation to build an entire political party on.
