Miranda Devine: Pelosi's 25th Amendment Ploy Proves She's Obsessed with Trump
New York Post writer says love and hate are closely intertwined
Nancy Pelosi made a bizarre comment on President Donald Trump’s “erotic” behavior while announcing her 25th Amendment ploy.
The House Speaker responded to Trump's tweet about the stimulus bill that flashed up on the screen during a segment ABC’s “The View."
“What do you think is causing this erratic behavior?” the House speaker was asked.
“Well, I think it’s true to form,” she said.
“The president has always had erotic behavior.”
But whether Pelosi meant to say “erratic,” her Freudian slip may suggest she's obsessed with Trump, according to New York Post opinion writer, Miranda Devine.
Pelosi may have finally realized that being in a party dominated by soy boys and pallid milquetoasts, she craves the Neanderthal macho man in their life.
Clearly, Pelosi, 80, hates Trump now that he dismisses her as “Crazy Nancy” and “a sick puppy,” says her teeth are falling out and refuses to talk to her.
But love and hate are closely intertwined in the human condition. Nothing makes a woman more spiteful than unrequited love.
Pelosi and Trump’s volcanic feud has shades of Anne Shirley and her classmate Gilbert Blythe in “Anne of Green Gables.” Gilbert pulls Anne’s red braids and calls her “Carrots.” She smashes a writing slate over his head, and they don’t speak to each other for years. But secretly, you know someone has a crush.
Or perhaps Pelosi sees herself more as the Jane Austen character Elizabeth Bennet in “Pride and Prejudice,” detesting Mr. Darcy with every fiber of her being . . . until her dreams come true and she falls romantically into his arms.
“From the very beginning . . . your arrogance, your conceit, and your selfish disdain of the feelings of others . . . have built so immovable a dislike,” spits Ms. Bennet at the object of her passions.
Pelosi announced Friday she was introducing legislation to create a commission that would allow Congress to oust a president from office using the 25th amendment.
This comes just one day after Speaker Pelosi accused President Donald Trump of being in an “altered state” following his COVID-19 treatment.
The Commission on Presidential Capacity to Discharge the Powers and Duties of Office would be created by the bill.
Democrats are calling it "the body and process called for in the 25th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution."
