Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez let her true colors show on Sunday during an appearance on CNN – calling for an end to bipartisanship and bragging about her plans for Joe Biden.

AOC claimed while speaking to CNN host Jake Tapper that the idea that American politicians on different sides of the isle should work together is “Republican manipulation,” adding that if Joe Biden is elected as president, she will push to further radicalize him.

Ocasio-Cortez said, “If we have an opportunity, if we work hard enough to elect folks like Jaime Harrison, to make sure that we protect seats like Gary Peters’, and to make sure that we unseat Republicans like Joni Ernst, and we have the unique, frankly, once-in-a-generation opportunity to have the White House, the Senate, and the House majorities Democratically-controlled, then I believe we have an obligation to the American people to show what a Democratic administration can actually accomplish, and that we can govern, and that we can truly have leaps in policy that people can feel in their everyday lives that makes voting Democratic worth—not just worthwhile, but a memorable shift from just a flatline of this idea of bipartisanship, which often just becomes Republican manipulation.”

At a later point in the interview, the Democratic socialist AOC claimed that it was “absolutely” her job to “push the Democratic party” further left.

Tapper highlighted a recent quote from Biden, who said, “I am the Democratic Party right now.”

“He said the party’s platform is his platform,” Tapper noted. “As you just noted, you disagree with him on a range of critical issues, not just fracking, but also health care. And you have made clear, including just a few minutes ago, that you intend to push him if he wins. Do you think that that’s going to be a major part of your role under a potential Biden administration, trying to push him to the left?”

“Well, I don’t want us to start counting our chickens before they hatch,” she responded. “I believe that we need to be focused on winning the White House, period. The fact of the matter is, there are many critical states that are on the line, whether it’s Florida, whether it’s Georgia, Pennsylvania, et cetera. And we need to make sure that we win this White House.”

She continued, “Frankly, I think it would be a privilege and it would be a luxury for us to be talking about what we would lobby the next Democratic—and how we will push the next Democratic administration. But, in terms of my role, I believe that that has been my role.”

“And my role is consistent in making sure that we push the Democratic Party to have a larger vision for our future, to listen to the needs of the working class, of people who are living paycheck to paycheck, young people, people of color, because I believe that is the base of the Democratic Party, and that who—that is who we are … it is our job to make sure that we are serving all people in the United States, and particularly our base.”

“And so, is my job to push the Democratic Party? Absolutely,” she concluded. “And that has been my job since—and that has been a part of my role since I have been elected.”

AOC’s intentions are clear – she wants to push complete socialism without compromise, and she feels Joe Biden is a well enough pawn for her to use to move the U.S. closer towards this.

A new photo emerged on Tuesday of Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden meeting with one of his son’s foreign business associates.

The photo shows Hunter and Joe Biden standing alongside Kenes Rakishev, a Kazakh oligarch who reportedly worked with Hunter.

Rakishev’s personal website states,“Kenes (Kenges) Rakishev is a prominent investor and entrepreneur regarded as one of the most influential businessmen in Kazakhstan.” Forbes has him ranked as one of the top 50 most influential people in Kazakhstan.

It was reported late last week by the Daily Mail that Hunter Bidens crooked foreign business dealings not only took place in China, Ukraine, and Russia, but also in Kazakhstan, a country known for being highly corrupt.

The Daily Mail report reads:

The Mail can reveal that between 2012 and 2014, Hunter worked as a sort of go-between for Kenes Rakishev, a self-styled ‘international businessman, investor and entrepreneur’ with close family connections to the kleptocratic regime of his homeland’s despotic former president Nursultan Nazarbayev.

Emails passed to this newspaper via anti-corruption campaigners from the Central Asian country reveal that Biden Jr held extensive meetings with Rakishev, who was looking to invest a portion of his personal fortune in New York and Washington DC. He also travelled to the Kazakh capital of Astana to hold business discussions.

Hunter Biden then attempted to persuade Rakishev to buy into a Nevadan mining company, brokering a series of meetings with the firm, before convincing him to invest a cool million dollars with Alexandra Forbes Kerry, the film-maker daughter of Democrat Senator and former Presidential candidate John Kerry.

Rakishev, who wrote messages in broken English, appears to have become intimate with the Vice President’s son, calling Hunter ‘my brother!’ and ‘my brother from another mother!’.

They shared gossip about their family holidays and dined together at luxury restaurants in New York and Washington DC (‘I’m on vacation with family [at] Lake Michigan . . . trying to spend some much needed time with my wife and daughters. It’s my 20th anniversary of marriage tomorrow,’ Hunter told Rakishev in July 2013).

A Senate report into Hunter Biden’s foreign business dealings stated that one of Hunter Biden’s shady business partners, Devon Archer, “received $142,300 from Kenges Rakishev of Kazakhstan, purportedly for a car, the same day Vice President Joe Biden appeared with Ukrainian Prime Minister Arsemy Yasenyuk and addressed Ukrainian legislators in Kyiv regarding Russia’s actions in Crimea.”

Joe Biden has attempted to maintain that he has never spoken to his son about his business dealings – but recent discoveries have made it rather difficult for the Democratic candidate to sustain this lie.

Last week the New York Post published a troubling report exposing that Joe Biden met with a top executive from Burisma, the Ukrainian gas company where his son served on the board, just prior to pressuring the Ukrainian government into firing a prosecutor looking into the company.

It’s becoming more and more clear that Joe Biden is complicit in all of his son’s shady business dealings and a Biden presidency would serve as a liability for the entire country.

Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden may have just cost himself the election after President Trump backed him into a corner – and the Democrat said he wanted to eliminate one of the nation’s largest industries.

Joe Biden admitted that his administration would push to “transition” from the oil industry, a decision that would leave working class Americans in crucial states without jobs.

“Would he close down the oil industry?” Trump asked. “Would you close down the oil industry?”

“I would transition from the oil industry, yes,” Biden responded.

“That’s a big statement,” Trump responded immediately, knowing Joe had made a major mistake by revealing his true intent.

“It is a big statement, because … the oil industry pollutes significantly,” Biden emphasized, later adding: “It has to be replaced by renewable energy over time, over time. And I’d stop giving to the oil industry — I’d stop giving them federal subsidies. [Trump] won’t give federal subsidies to solar and wind. Why are we giving it to oil industry?”

Trump responded to Biden’s attempted lies here, saying, “We actually do give it to solar and wind, and that’s maybe the biggest statement in terms of business … because basically what he’s saying is he is going to destroy the oil industry. Will you remember that, Texas? Will you remember that, Pennsylvania? Oklahoma?”

Twitter erupted with users baffled by Joe Biden’s decision to put an end to oil.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott decried the move that would wreak havoc on his state’s economy saying, “Biden wants to ‘transition’ away from the oil industry. He just killed paycheck earned by hardworking families in Texas. Joe just wants to transition away from Texas. Remember that on election day.”

Political commentator Jesse Kelly said that after an answer like that, he doesn’t see a path to victory for sleepy Joe. “Trump campaign is gonna roll out a massive ad buy in Pennsylvania with that idiotic Biden answer about oil. Unless someone shows me a map with a path to victory for Biden when he loses Florida (which he will) and Pennsylvania, that might have sealed the deal tonight,” tweeted Kelly.

Robby Starbuck, another political commentator tweeted saying, “Joe Biden just said he would transition from the oil industry. That means kill the oil industry. The moderator’s response ‘why would you do that?’ was hilarious. She sounded confused why he would do this to his campaign. His far left plan slipped out. Massive error by Joe.”

Earlier in the debate on the topic of climate change and jobs, Biden denied that he would ban fracking, even though Trump noted that Biden has been recorded as saying as such.

Biden responded to Trump’s comments and challenged the president to prove his claims with video and the president responded by so almost immediately.

“We’re going to have the greatest economy in the world,” Trump said. “But if you want to kill the economy, get rid of your oil industry. And what about fracking? Now we have to ask him about fracking.”

“I have never said I oppose fracking,” Biden claimed.

“You said it on tape,” Trump fired back.

“I—show the tape, put it on your website,” Biden yelled. “The fact of the matter is he’s flat lying.”

That’s exactly what Trump did in this Video.

The United States has achieved energy independence for the first time in over 50 years under President Trump thanks to deregulation and tax cuts that have enabled us to become more competitive – something that Joe Biden apparently wants to put an end to.

Federal officials just confirmed that Russia, and more actively, Iran, have been caught attempting destroy President Trump’s chances of winning reelection.

Speaking during an FBI press conference on Wednesday, Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe said that both Russia and Iran are attempting to influence the results of the 2020 election, and have obtained some voter registration information.

Iran’s involvement has reportedly been with the intent to incite social unrest in the country and damage President Trump.

“This data can be used by foreign actors to attempt to communicate false information to registered voters that they hope will cause confusion, sow chaos, and undermine your confidence in American democracy,” he said.

“To that end, we have already seen Iran sending spoofed emails designed to intimidate voters, incite social unrest, and damage President Trump. You may have seen some reporting on this in the last 24 hours or you may have even been one of the recipients of those emails.”

Ratcliffe here, is alluding to a story by the Washington Post that says that Iran was posing as the Proud Boys, threatening Democratic voters via email in order to make President Trump look bad.

“The U.S. government has concluded that Iran was behind a series of threatening emails arriving this week in the inboxes of Democratic voters,” The Washington Post reported. “The emails claimed to be from the Proud Boys … but appeared instead to be a deceptive campaign making use of a vulnerability in the organization’s online network.”

Ratcliffe continued, saying, “Although we have not seen the same actions from Russia, we are aware that they have obtained some voter information just as they did in 2016. Rest assured that we are prepared for the possibility of actions by those hostile to democracy.”

Noting that his agency was responsible for investigating election crimes, FBI Director Christopher Wray vowed to take action in order to ensure the integrity of U.S. elections. He said that Americans should be “confident” that their votes count.

“At the FBI, we’ve been working closely with our intelligence community partners, as well as our other federal, state, and local partners to share information, bolster security, and identify and disrupt any threats,” Wray said.

“We are not going to tolerate foreign interference in our elections or any criminal activity that threatens the sanctity of your vote or undermines public confidence in the outcome of the election. When we see indications of foreign interference or federal election crimes, we’re gonna aggressively investigate and work with our partners to quickly take appropriate action. We’re also coordinating with the private sector, both technology and social media companies, to make sure that their platforms aren’t used by foreign adversaries to spread disinformation and propaganda.”

“We are not going to let our guard down,” he added

This is not the first time we’ve been warned about Iran’s attempt to influence the election. Back in August, National Counterintelligence and Security Center (NSCS) Director William Evanina highlighted the threat posed to U.S. elections by Iran, noting that Iran wanted to “undermine” Trump’s re-election efforts.

“We assess that Iran seeks to undermine U.S. democratic institutions, President Trump, and to divide the country in advance of the 2020 elections,” Evanina said in a statement.

“Iran’s efforts along these lines probably will focus on on-line influence, such as spreading disinformation on social media and recirculating anti-U.S. content. Tehran’s motivation to conduct such activities is, in part, driven by a perception that President Trump’s reelection would result in a continuation of U.S. pressure on Iran in an effort to foment regime change.”

It’s becoming more and more clear that Joe Biden is complicit in all of his son’s shady business dealings and a Biden presidency would serve as a liability for the entire country.

After CNBC on Monday, released a nonpartisan analysis of the Biden tax plan – one popular figure decided he was done with the Democrats, throwing his weight behind President Trump for reelection.

Rapper 50 Cent, whose real name is Curtis James Jackson III, endorsed President Donald Trump in an Instagram post published Monday which included a screenshot from the CNBC report on what big city’s taxes would look like with Joe Biden in charge.

“WHAT THE F***! (VOTE ForTRUMP),” posted Jackson. “I’M OUT.”

He continued later in the post, “62% are you out of ya f***ing mind,” referencing the CNBC graphic which indicates taxes in New York City – where Jackson currently resides – could hit 62%

According to the CNBC report, Biden’s tax plan would implement double-digit increases in the tax rates of those earning over $400,000 annually.

“In California, New Jersey and New York City,” the report noted, “taxpayers earning more than $400,000 a year could face combined state and local statutory income tax rates of more than 60%.”

CNBC’s report on Biden’s tax plan outlined the following according to the Daily Wire:

In California, New Jersey and New York City, taxpayers earning more than $400,000 a year could face combined state and local statutory income tax rates of more than 60%.

Few taxpayers pay the full statutory rates, which don’t include deductions, credits, offsets, loopholes and lower tax rates on other sources of income.

If the Democrats win the Senate and can pass legislation removing the $10,000 cap on state and local tax deductions, the combined state and local tax rates for top earners could be even lower.

“Under Biden’s plan, the effective tax rate for the top 1% would increase from 26.8% to 39.8%, according to the Tax Policy Center,” the report said. “That means top earners in California and New York City would pay effective state and federal tax rates of around 53% — compared with the roughly 40% they pay in effective rates today.”

“What’s more,” CNBC added, “if the Democrats win the Senate and can pass legislation removing the $10,000 cap on state and local tax deductions, the combined state and local tax rates for top earners could be even lower.”

Jackson is not alone in fearing the economic repercussions of a potential Biden victory.

A Florida company president sent letters to his employees inside their pay stub envelopes last week, warning that Joe Biden winning the election could force the company to make subsequent permanent layoffs to stay afloat.

Employees from the Orlando-based Daniels Manufacturing, which makes tools and electronics for aerospace and military clients, were interviewed about the contents of the letter by WESH 2 News.

“If Trump and the Republicans win [the election], DMC will hopefully be able to continue operating, more or less as it has been operating lately,” the letter from owner George Daniels read. “However, if Biden and the Democrats win, DMC could be forced to begin permanent layoffs beginning in late 2020 and/or early 2021.”

“I have been doing this for years. I have an obligation to let workers know what could happen, based on the outcome of an election,” Daniels said.

Former White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon sat for an interview with Revolver News over the weekend where he warned that a number of explosive stories about the Biden crime syndicate would be released in the coming days.

The media outlet asked Bannon “what the most incriminating thing on the hard drive is?” adding that, “Rudy [Giuliani] has suggested illegal things, and as Revolver reported the FBI person tasked with the hard drive is associated with the child pornography division. Could you give more insight into how bad it is we’re talking about?”

Bannon responded, “Joe Biden is a liar, a fraud, and compromised by Chinese cash. In short, he is a national security crisis. The hard drive combines emails and text messages that show a massive involvement with companies controlled by the Chinese Communist Party. Also, there are 25,000 images that show a drug-addled, depraved lifestyle — one that decent hardworking Americans will not want near the White House.”

Revolver News then questioned Bannon about why the FBI held onto the now infamous Hunter Biden hard drive for nearly a year.

“The President must confront the director of the FBI on why the information housed on this hard drive was not moved on immediately,” Bannon said.

“If the content of the hard drive had been released when received in November 2019, there would have been no impeachment of Trump, and Bernie Sanders would be the Democratic Party nominee. This confrontation should take place this weekend in the Oval Office. If Wray doesn’t have a bulletproof reason he should be fired in the room…” Bannon continued.

Revolver then asked, “Is there any reason to expect that the contents of the hard drive will be revealed before the election? If yes, will people actually care enough for it to substantially affect the outcome?”

Bannon answered, “The Bidens are about to be hit with multiple stories from multiple media sources based off evidence beyond the hard drive. Fox and Peter Schweitzer have already started but bigger more mainstream companies are going to weigh in. We already have set in motion the various apparatuses that will release everything.”

On Sunday, President Trump called the troubling information discovered on the hard drive the “real deal.”

“Hunter Biden’s laptop is a disaster for the entire Biden family, but especially for his father, Joe. It is now a proven fact, and cannot be denied, that all of that info is the REAL DEAL,” the president wrote on Twitter.

“That makes it impossible for ‘50%, or 10%’ Joe, to ever assume the office of the President!” Trump continued.

A little more than an hour later, he credited his “former hometown” tabloid for reporting on the Biden family scandal.

“Very proud of the @nypost, my former ‘hometown newspaper’. They have said and shown what everyone knows about Sleepy Joe Biden. He is a CORRUPT POLITICIAN!!!” he said.

“Joe Biden is a corrupt politician, and everybody knows it. Now you have the proof, perhaps like never was had before on a major politician. Laptop plus. This is the second biggest political scandal in our history!” Trump said.

NBC’s Savannah Guthrie may have taken over the top spot for the worst moderator in 2020 after an utterly embarrassing display of partisan attacks on President Trump during Thursday night’s town hall.

Guthrie, whose husband was former Vice President Al Gore’s traveling chief of staff during the 2000 presidential election cycle, was repeatedly combative with the president while Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden practically received a massage during his competing town hall event on ABC News.

During part of the Townhall, Guthrie furiously attempted to shame the president over his stance on mask wearing – questioning him on a White House event where the majority of people in attendance were reportedly not wearing masks.

“I’m good with masks,” Trump said. “I’m OK with masks. I tell people wear masks.”

“You can see with a mask, though, right,” Guthrie asked Trump after he expressed his feelings on being able to “see people” as he claimed he cannot be kept away in a room.

“People with masks are catching it all the time,” Trump said in response. “If you look at the governor of Virginia, he was known for a mask. If you look at [Sen.] Thom Tillis, a great guy, he always had a mask and they caught it.”

In an attempt to interrupt Trump’s message, Guthrie countered him by bringing up former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie , who said he was “wrong” not to wear a mask.

“He has to say that,” Trump said of Christie. “I think it’s great. He’s a friend of mine. He’s a good guy.”

“Wrong or not wrong, you have to understand. As president, I can’t be locked in a room someplace for the next year and just stay and do nothing,” Trump added, describing the scene when he attends events and meets with the families of America’s fallen war heroes.

Mollie Hemingway of the Federalist weighed in on Guthrie’s behavior, saying, “Savannah Guthrie has wasted 10 minutes on her personal obsession with people wearing masks and I would like her to move onto more interesting and more important topics.”

Activist Terrence Williams also commented, adding, “Savannah Guthrie is an a**hole,” activist Terrence Williams wrote to his followers. “She’s hammering President Trump about a mask! Let it go and ask about policy.”

At another point during the event, a combative Guthrie was seemingly bothered by Trump’s retweet of a CIA whistleblower revealing that former Vice President Joe Biden helped to “orchestrate the killing of Seal Team Six” to “cover up the fake death of Bin Laden.”

Guthrie, who would likely support the whistleblower’s claims if it were anti-Trump news, attempted to paint the story as a “conspiracy theory,” comparing President Trump to a “crazy uncle” for sharing it.

“You retweeted to your 87 million followers a conspiracy theory that Joe Biden orchestrated to have Seal Team Six, the Navy Seal Team Six, killed to cover up the fake death of Bin Laden,” Guthrie said to Trump. “Now why would you send a lie like that to your followers? You retweeted it.”

“That was a retweet. That was an opinion of somebody,” Trump responded. “I put it out there. People can decide for themselves.”

“I don’t get that,” Guthrie interjected. “You’re the president. You’re not, like, someone’s crazy uncle who can just retweet whatever.”

Guthrie’s overall performance on the night showed more of this type of extreme hostility towards the President of the United States as she made it clear she was bent on pushing her liberal agenda, essentially acting as a surrogate for the Joe Biden campaign.

Criticism of Guthrie’s moderator performance flooded the internet.

“Why is Savannah Guthrie being so nasty,” questioned Amy Kremer, one of the original Tea Party activists.

“They should rename this townhall and call it, ‘A National Townhall with Savantha Guthrie,’” wrote David Brody of the Christian Broadcasting Network.

Political commentator Lisa Boothe commented: “Why is Savannah Guthrie debating President Trump? I thought this was a town hall. The media is garbage these days.”

“How terrible was Savannah Guthrie,” asked ACT for America founder Brigitte Gabriel.

Sean Davis, co-founder of the Federalist, said Guthrie’s desperate attempts to “get Trump” throughout the event, resulted in a miserable failure for her.

“If Guthrie had been half as civilized and professional as the questioners — for example, asking a question and then politely listening to the answer without having a temper tantrum — that would’ve been a really illuminating debate,” Davis stated. “Instead, she went Full Clown and Trump stomped her.”

Brent Scher of the Washington Free Beacon wrote, “Just flipped to NBC and Savannah Guthrie is screaming.”

Former White House press secretary Ari Fleischer claimed Guthrie was in “interrogation” mode.

“I just switched to NBC since ABC is in a commercial,” Fleischer wrote. “Savanah Guthrie has interrupted Trump in these 60 seconds more than Stephanopoulos has done to Biden in 40 mins. NBC is an interrogation. ABC is a picnic.”

Fox News host Greg Gutfeld tweeted: “NBC is embarrassing itself. worse than expected. Guthrie is like a poorly disguised ambush. even she follows up with planned questions after the ‘townhall’ question. what a horrible show trial.”

Political commentator Dana Loesch wrote: “Guthrie’s performance here shows there is difference between being aggressive and being undisciplined.”

Political commentator Dan Bongino tweeted: “Savannah Guthrie is, without a doubt, the worst moderator I have ever seen.”

Social media giants Facebook and Twitter engaged in full-on election interference on Wednesday in a desperate attempt to coverup an explosive story that came out about Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden.

After The New York Post published a story that quickly went viral, Facebook and Twitter both frantically scrambled to run interference for Biden and the Democrats on this story that could easily ruin their chances of winning the election.

The story by The Post revealed that Joe Biden met with a top Burisma executive months before using his influence to get a Ukrainian prosecutor fired for looking into the energy company which employed his son.

Facebook intentionally limited the distribution of the story while Twitter labeled links to the story “unsafe,” and even locked accounts of people sharing the story.

Facebook spokesman and former Democrat staffer Andy Stone announced on Twitter, “While I will intentionally not link to the New York Post, I want be clear that this story is eligible to be fact checked by Facebook’s third-party fact checking partners. In the meantime, we are reducing its distribution on our platform,”

He continued claiming, “This is part of our standard process to reduce the spread of misinformation. We temporarily reduce distribution pending fact-checker review.”

Twitter would not allow new links to the article to be posted – even by employees of the newspaper.

“This is a Big Tech information coup,” said the New York Post’s op-eds editor, Sohrab Ahmari. “This is digital civil war.”

“I, an editor at the New York Post, one of the nation’s largest papers by circulation, can’t post one of our own stories that details corruption by a major-party presidential candidate, Joe Biden.”

A Twitter spokesman said the link was being banned across the platform “in line with our Hacked Materials Policy as well as our approach to blocking URLs.”

Twitter also claimed the article lacked “authoritative information,” but did not explain this position further.

Twitter even went as far as locking the personal account of White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany on Wednesday after she shared a link to the story.

McEnany spoke out against Twitter’s censorship, saying that the left-leaning platform essentially “held her at gunpoint” until she deletes a link to the Post’s story.

“It’s not a temporary blockage,” McEnany said. “When I log on to my Twitter account, it says I’m permanently banned. They essentially have me at gunpoint and said unless you delete this story, a news story by the New York Post, I cannot regain access to my account.”

“This was a news story with emails, pictures of the emails … even the Biden campaign does not dispute the authenticity of the emails,” McEnany said of the report. “Meanwhile … the ayatollah of Iran [is] tweeting ‘death to Israel’. This is permitted on Twitter, but an email that is reported … by the New York Post, a credible outlet, you are not allowed share that information.”

“This is not the American way,” McEnany added. ” This is not how a freedom-loving democracy operates. We have to have to hold Twitter accountable, and Facebook too, who is banning the transmission of this story simply because ideologically it hurts the side of the aisle that Silicon Valley prefers. It’s sad, it’s censorship, [and] this is not America.”

“And,” she concluded, “make no mistake, if they can ban the press secretary of the United States for President Trump, they can ban you, as a citizen, and that is pathetic.”

The obvious censorship was met by legal threats from Republican lawmakers including Sen. Josh Hawley who said, “So Facebook is going to actively censor a [New York Post] investigative story on the Democrat candidate for president. But rest assured, Facebook is a neutral platform with no political viewpoints!”

“I want to know on what grounds you are actively censoring a news report about potentially illegal corruption by the Democrat candidate for president,” said Hawley in a follow-up tweet. “If you have evidence this is ‘disinformation,’ disclose it immediately.”

“Expect a formal inquiry from my office.”

In a tweet posted to the Trump War Room twitter account, the Trump campaign accused Facebook of election interference.

“This is a Facebook employee. Facebook is actively interfering in the election. Facebook is rigging the election for Joe Biden.”

“This is straight-up election interference by Facebook, being announced by their comms person who touts in his bio numerous past jobs with Dems,” said Donald Trump Jr. “Big Tech is openly trying to rig this election for Biden & should be held accountable immediately.”

Speaker Of The House Nancy Pelosi seemingly forgot to take her medication on Tuesday when she came unhinged during an interview with far-left CNN host Wolf Blitzer – calling him a “Republican apologist” for pressing her on stimulus.

Throughout the interview, Blitzer questioned Pelosi as to why she had rejected the most recent offer from the White House for a $1.8 trillion package that would deliver much needed aid to the American people.

Blitzer pointed out that Pelosi wrote to House Democrats that “the president only wants his name on a check to go out before election day and for the market to go up,” then asked Pelosi, “Is that what this is all about? To not allow the president to take credit that there’s a deal that will help millions of Americans right now?”

Pelosi answered, “I don’t care about that. He’s not that important. But let me say this, with all due respect, you really don’t know what you are talking about.”

Blitzer said of Americans, “They really need the money right now, and even members of your own caucus, Madame Speaker, wanted to accept this deal. 1.8 trillion dollars; Congressman Ro Khanna, a man you know well, I assume you admire him, he’s a Democrat, and he just said this, he said, ‘People in need can’t wait until February. 1.8 trillion is significant & more than twice the Obama stimulus — make a deal & put the ball in the McConnell court.’ So what do you say to Ro Khanna?”

“What I say to you is, I don’t know, you’re always an apologist,” an furious Pelosi retorted. “And many of your colleagues, apologists for the Republican position. Ro Khanna: that’s nice. That isn’t what we’re going to do. And nobody’s waiting until February.”

“We know the problem out there but there are millions of Americans who have lost their jobs, they can’t pay the rent, their kids need the food,” Blitzer persisted. “1.8 trillion dollars. The president just tweeted: ‘Stimulus: go big or go home.’ He wants even more right now, so why not work on a deal with him and don’t the perfect, as they say here in Washington, be the enemy of the good?”

Pelosi – seemingly having some sort of mental breakdown live on air – said, “Well, I will not let the wrong be the enemy of the right.”

Blitzer: “What’s wrong with 1.8 trillion dollars?”

Pelosi eventually became so flustered that she switched sides of the political spectrum with another verbal blunder. “I didn’t come over here to have — so you’re the apologist for the Obama — excuse me, G-d forbid.”

Blitzer, protesting, “Madam Speaker, I’m not an apologist. I’m asking you serious questions because so many people are in desperate need right now. Let me ask you this: when was the last time, Madam Speaker, you spoke with the president about this?”

Pelosi: “I don’t speak with the president. I speak with his representative.”

Blitzer, trying to be reasonable: “Why not? Why not call him and say, Mr. President, let’s work out a deal. It’s not going to be everything you want, it’s not going to be everything I want, but there are so many Americans right now who are in desperate need, let’s make a deal.”

The complete heated interview between Pelosi and Blitzer can be seen below:

The heated exchange comes after Pelosi refused the White House’s offer of a $1.8 trillion “compromise” deal on coronavirus relief almost immediately upon offering, and as Blitzer mentioned, some Democrats are pushing the Speaker to take the deal.

Andrew Yang, a former Democratic presidential candidate, tweeted point-blank at the Speaker over the weekend, telling Pelosi to “take the deal” or risk political fallout.

“Nancy Pelosi take this deal!” Andrew Yang said, directing her to the $1.8 trillion plan. “Put politics aside people are hurting.”

Former Obama administration bigwig Dan Pfeiffer agreed, telling Pelosi to ignore “potential risks” and ink the deal with President Donald Trump, sending relief to families in need instead of forcing them to wait until after the presidential election.

“While there are potential risks, Democrats should aggressively pursue a COVID Relief deal with Trump,” Pfeiffer tweeted.

“It’s the right thing to do, but the politics can also work in our favor,” Pfeiffer added, citing an op-ed that suggests Democrats will share both credit and blame — and would be better off sharing credit ahead of a contentious November election.

The deal doesn’t cover all of Democrats’ top priorities, but it does, reportedly, deliver a second round of $1200 stimulus checks to individual taxpayers, grants a small reprieve from student loan payments, and extends the supplemental federal unemployment benefit, though it lowers the weekly amount from $600 to $400 (it currently sits at $300, where applicable).

The bill also, according to experts, extends a hand to cities and states suffering from the economic fallout from coronavirus lockdowns, though it does not allow cities and states whose financial issues predate COVID-19 to claim benefits.

The final Democrat-authored coronavirus relief bill came in at $2.2 trillion, just around $400 billion less than the White House’s version.

Pelosi, though, called the deal a “step back” in a letter to colleagues.

“This proposal amounted to one step forward, two steps back,” she said, noting that it failed to include “strategic plan to crush the virus,” even though few entities are prepared to issue such a plan, even the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The CDC instead has remained focused on issuing temporary guidelines to control and limit coronavirus transmission as a coronavirus vaccine is being pursued.
