Breaking: Beltway Meltdown as Pelosi Goes Too Far with Trump Attack, Appears To Have Broken House Rules

Published

on

Congressional reporters in Washington, D.C., were scrambling to keep up Tuesday after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi of California appeared to break House rules during remarks from the floor.

It all started as Pelosi delivered a speech that referred to Trump’s comments Sunday regarding a group of female progressive lawmakers as “racist.”

Trump suggested the congresswomen should “go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came. Then come back and show us how it is done.”

“There is no place anywhere for the president’s words, which are not only divisive, but dangerous — and have legitimized and increased fear and hatred of new Americans and people of color,” Pelosi said Tuesday. “It’s so sad because you would think that there would be a given that we would universally, in this body, just say, ‘Of course. Of course.’”

“There’s no excuse for any response to those words but a swift and strong unified condemnation,” she added, according to Fox News.

“Every single member of this institution, Democratic and Republican, should join us in condemning the president’s racist tweets. To do anything less would be a shocking rejection of our values, and a shameful abdication of our oath of office to protect the American people. I urge a unanimous vote, and yield back the balance of my time.”

After Pelosi was done, Georgia Republican Rep. Doug Collins asked if she’d like to “rephrase that comment.”

“I have cleared my remarks with the parliamentarian before I read them,” Pelosi responded.

That wasn’t good enough for Collins, who said: “Can I ask the words be taken down? I make a point of order that the gentlewoman’s words are unparliamentary and be taken down.”

At issue was a passage from the Jefferson Manual of Parliamentary Practice, which the House uses as a sort of rulebook to guide its operations.

“References to racial or other discrimination on the part of the President are not in order,” the passage reads. “As such, remarks may not refer to the President as: (1) a racist … (2) having made ‘racial slurs’ or ‘racial epithets’ … (3) telling a ‘racist lie’ … (4) a bigot … (5) having made a bigoted or racist statement … (6) having taken a bigoted action … (7) not caring about black people … (8) a misogynist … (9) having run a prejudiced campaign.”

House members from both parties then “huddled” with the House parliamentarian,” as Fox noted.

Congressional reporters, meanwhile, breathlessly narrated the sequence of events over Twitter:

It was hard to tell what exactly was going on, but Pelosi did at one point did appear to walk off the House floor, which, according to Fox, “constitutes a violation of House Rules when someone’s words are taken down.”

Later, Democratic Rep. Emanuel Cleaver of Missouri, who was presiding over the session, gave up and abandoned his chair.

House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer of Maryland ended up presiding over the session and acknowledged that Pelosi’s remarks were out of order.

“Speaker Pelosi just broke the rules of the House, and is no longer permitted to speak on the floor of the House for the rest of the day,” House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy of California tweeted.

But Pelosi eventually returned to the floor and addressed her previous comments.

“I’m proud of my remarks and I’m glad they’re getting the attention they’re getting,” she said.

While Republicans wanted to strike Pelosi’s floor remarks from the record, a motion that would so failed in a 232-190 vote, according to The Hill.

The House then voted 231-190 to allow Pelosi to keep her floor speaking privileges on Tuesday.

A version of this story appears on the Western Journal website.

    All this shit talking by the Dems comes on the heels of the Announcement that Epstein os going to start dropping names….LOL

    • E G MUSK says:

      President Trump told the naked truth. They can’t stand the truth.

      President Trump made one omission. He should have asked the ‘reporters’ that support Al Quada to ask the questions. Any questions as long as they support Al Quada.

      Omar whatsisname said she stands tall and “chest out” when she reviews the ‘accomplishments’ of Al Quada.

      What the hell is going on?

      • Grant says:

        Agreed. Pelosi also broke EVERY Tennent of Decorum for a Member of Congress, let alone the Speaker of the House, which is third in line to the Presidency!!!!!!

        • cheryl D. says:

          By allowing this, they have opened a “Pandora’s Box.”

        • Jewels says:

          Yes but it doesn’t matter, she has kissed so much ass, the payback will come back to her 10 fold. It’s called you scratched her back and she will kiss your ass, as long as she can try to show her disdain, and her vile hatred of our President, you know the man that the American people elected. All their ballot stuffing, all the prostitutes they bought, and they still lost, praise God.

  • Tommy Ryan says:

    “Pissed-off-sie” is all mad about President Trump making her little congressional voodoo dolls look like idiots & she clearly violates policy by using unfounded derogatory comments about the president…in true libtard buzzword fashion.

    Where & WHEN have any of those prog-soci baboons been Constitutional. They haven’t been since January 2017.

    Claiming to be “leaders” & not REPRESENTATIVES of The People is out of order for ANY member of Congress OR Senate…whilst claiming to be “for the people”.

    Isn’t Pelosi the bitch who back in the 1st term of the Obama administration called The American People “AstroTurf” for the DC elite?

    It’s getting pretty desperate & thin of late in the ol’ prog-soci circles…elitist bastards.

  • FRED H. SMITH says:

    watch them , they may try a rule change again

  • William D Wonchoba says:

    Every school that Pelosi went to should be closed and demolished. A complete failure of education.

  • Cherokee says:

    Why is anyone surprised by this?? Democrats and Socialists don’t believe the rules apply to them. Also, the President did not say “they should go back to where they came from” . He said they should go to those countries and fix the problems there “in the sh*thole countries – my words” and then come back and tell us how it’s done. America is still the best and most freedom loving country on the face of this earth even with our warts and all. No person or country is perfect.

  • Kathie says:

    Americans…the theatrics and law breaking of the Democratic party have broken the foundation of what this country was built on. President Trump doesn’t hit til someone hits him first, and if he loud and obnoxious, well he’s from NY, but no one, NO ONE has proven he is a racist or bigot…this is crap made up from those who want to break this country & it’s principles down.

  • Wayne says:

    We’re watching the Democrats lose the 2020 election. By doing stupid shit like this. To hell with the rules. It’s stated that no one on the house floor can call the President a racist. The Dems are breaking all the rules. Keep it up and cry for the next few years. The American people are tired of these antics.

  • rob says:

    pelosi better get control of that gavel back soon.

  • Shhhhhhhhh says:

DISRESPECTFUL

  • JoAnn says:

    Pelosi’s words should have been stricken from the record. We have a punch of cowards/ socialists in our congress who call themselves Americans? Give me a break!! Pelosi should be impeached and removed from office along with the 4 goons who call themselves congresswomen they are a total disgrace and every legal means should be used to remove them from the congress. These 4 have no respect for our President or what our country stands for.

    • Diana says:

      Yes YES YES your so right Pres. Trump said or did nothing wrong these four crazies are the ones breaking rules Laws they need to be removed immediately all they ever do is cut this country down make remarks that in some instances need their mouth washed out these democratics are so scared Barr is going to tell America who and why they have done all this disgraceful behavior he better and he better do it fast not another mueller taking way to long he has all the evidence to bring down the democratics completely including those in office and those who ran from obama down we want justice prison time to Firing Squad

  • CharlieSeattle says:

    Nancy’s coming reply…

    “Rules are what I say they are.”

    • Gary Son says:

      I guess that since the democrats control the house, then they can do away with our history and the house decorum. Just because a twisted house leader, and they make this alright. Imagine what the **** these people are doing to the american citizens behind closed doors. Pelosi has lost total control of the house, because she lets these four fruitcakes slander the president, break the law, and consort with terrorists. I say that Pelosi needs to be removed as speaker of the house and put some one senior in the position so the democratic party can function normally.

  • Lee Price says:

    Okay Mr. President, its time to start arresting and removing these idiots. First, no names were ever mentioned. Second, it is not America’s fault that he is correct. Third, DO YOUR DAMN JOB BITCH! If you are “ALLEGEDLY” working for the American people and not for just yourself, ACT LIKE IT! Try to pretend sometimes!!! The House of Representatives have NOT done their job since President Trump has been elected! Mr. President, PLEASE withhold their monies since they have failed to work! So sick of these thieves!

  • Sam Ramos says:

    The DemocRATS are making the House of Representative like A Banana Republic government. In any moment we will see them throwing fits and kicking when they loose the majority in 2020 and President Trump get re-elected.

  • Bonnie says:

    Pelosi acts like she’s the President! But she doesn’t give a damn about America. If she did she wouldn’t be the one leading the charge against a border wall to protect us from invasion by all kinds of people/criminals and who knows what. Makes you wonder if some of her millions came from the drug cartel. What’s obvious is she doesn’t care about protecting Americans.

  • Alice says:

    Does anyone stop to see that the 4 idiots have managed to get the USA in a huge turmoil The 4 ignorant freshmen congresswomen know how to get old Nancy to do crazy, emotional stunts. The 4 idiots are definitely in control of the demonRATS and also the rhinos who have no spines to stand firm against them.

  • Brianna D Penny says:

    And this is exactly why we have a crisis at the border.

  • Marilyn says:

    All of these Dems are idiots. They change the rules to satisfy the situation. Pelosi headed out after she broke the rules. Just change as you go! The Squad will give Trump a big win in 2020. Can’t imagine any sane person watching the evil words flowing from the 4 Stooges’ lips and not have their blood boiling. How dare these little Communists pretend to speak for the American people. I just wanted to smack those evil words from their lips. God save us if they win in 2020. Donate to Trump for 2020 immediately like I did.

  • Richard says:

    Pelosi clearly broke the House rules. Good on Rep. Collins for calling her on it.

    But the rules that apply to everyone else don’t apply to Democrats so long as they’re in power or the majority. We the People need to change that.

  • TerryM says:

    What is racist about a statement like, “Love it or leave it?” Dems get riled any time Trump speaks.

  • James says:

    ok what Trump said Trump suggested the congresswomen should “go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came. Then come back and show us how it is done.” so lets look at this way the states these and other are support to represent their states are having big time issues. correct the problems in your state then come back to so the rest how its done…come on nancy…maxine…chuck at the rest get off your butts and DO YOUR JOB!!!

  • Carol Seman says:

    There are 95 non white representatives in the house. Why is Trump not attacking them? If they understood the definition of the term they would not cry racism. They are under fire because they have loudly attacked our country and our president.

  • cheryl D. says:

    Wonder what the lefties would do, if the word racist was outlawed?

  • JACQUELINE STIGMAN says:

    The four woman happen to be women of color but Trump’s remarks were in regard to their consolidated and yes viscious attacks on Americans and America while avidly supporting criminal behaviour on the part of Illegal immigration. These women not only show no respect for Rule of Law they also shout their hate for America, for Americans, and for our Constituion and Rule of Law. So Trump did not make racist remarks. Pelosi apparently thinks that people of color can do no wrong. (and I am sure that people of color would not agree with her.) Pelosi appears to beleive that a person of color’s actions or remarks must never be judged or have consequences. Which is actually quite racist. As we do hold adults accountable for their words and actions. Yet she upholds that they should not be. This attitude on her part appears part of the Dem philosophy that they can never be cited for doing any wrong.

  • Dragonfly43 says:

    Funny how we didn’t hear Pelosi condemn the squad on the racist and America hating comments they’ve made. Tlaib stated, “We’re gonna go in there and we’re gonna impeach the mother***er,” and has said Jews have dual loyalty and lied about the Holocaust. Ocrazio and Omar called for the elimination of the Department of Homeland Security and compared the border to concentration camps. Omar referred to 911 as, “something happened,” stated Jewish money controls congress, and constantly bad-mouths this country. Pressley made a statement about not needing black faces that don’t want to be a black voice. And, they have the nerve to call the president racist! Apparently Pelosi is afraid of these women. She’s lost her power!

    These four morons should be grateful they live in the greatest country in the world and have the opportunities they’ve been given!

  • Evangeline says:

    Another example of how Dems accuse and trash Trump continually with no consequences even when they disobey the rules of the House. But let Trump say one true thing about congresswomen who hate our country, and they are all over him like a bunch of rabid vultures.

  • Meanwhile, President Trump is running the country, and things
    are really great. Jobs are back, I see more smiles than ever before,
    The democratic party has become the number one enemy of the people.
    Omar wants islamic control, but we will not let her.
    They are a threat to everyone.
    President Trump made a good example of the threat we will endure
    if these clowns are given anymore authority.
    I am so glad that President Trump will stand up against these people
    that want to crush our country.

  • Bonnie says:

    Pelosi broke the rules and gets away with it. All of them swear an oath to uphold our Constitutions laws. Yet she and her cohorts say and do whatever they want and no one punishes them….because they’re women? That’s discrimination! Saying nasty things about our President and using gender and race to get away with it is exactly what they accuse him of doing, except they’re the ones breaking the rules and law they swore to uphold so that they can be trusted.

  • Bonnie says:

    If you research the meaning of Sedition and Treason you’ll recognize what’s going on in America. Pretty sad that good people who care about America are being persecuted…Same ol story throughout history.

  • Jewels says:

    I will never vote Democrat…They all seem to be standing with the Muslim, who has declared she will do what is necessary, to make Islam the defining religion of America. I will die before I would ever genuflect to the likes of any Muslim, or any who would put a false god above the Lord, my God. May God have mercy on America, weed out those who will deny God, and send them straight to the bowels of hell. Amen.

  • Gary says:

    Has anyone other than me noticed that there is little or no liberal comments in support of Pelosi!

  • Steve Holsten says:

    Go to Hell Peloshit! President Trump is the Greatest most Wonderful President we’ve ever had!!!

  • Sharon Barton says:

    It’s time to do something with that fossil Pelosi. She has been the most offensive, disrespectful, bigoted, racist, prejudice, vile, evil, disgusting and unprofessional scag besides the other scag from California, Margaret Watters, that I hope I never see again. How do these people think they are not discriminating against President Trump because he IS NOT a politician, he says what’s on his mind and anything he says or does is cause for an investigation of some sort. What he said about those muslims was perfectly ok and I couldn’t have said it better. President Trump has done wonders for our country and that is the very reason you democraps have literally lost your minds. Everyone of you stink of crime and corruption and you are more racist than anyone on the planet. I hope President Trump deals with each one of you appropriately once he is re-elected and you will never have a chance to disgrace anyone again. You are all trash and not worthy of breathing the same air as our President. I will always hate every democrap that ends up in some form of govt office because you are thieves and liars and I wouldn’t trust anyone of you. Disgusting slime.
