In between the insistence on impeachment as a dire national security issue and then the holding of the articles, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi gave a slight hint into why she’s been going gung-ho for so long, so viciously, yet so utterly devoid and defiant of facts, against President Donald Trump: It’s personal.
It’s revenge.
It’s Pelosi’s way of marking this president for life.
“This president is impeached for life regardless of any gamesmanship on the part of Mitch McConnell,” she said on “This Week” on ABC. A few moments later, she added, “There is nothing the Senate can do that can ever erase that.”
What an odd little quip.
It’s the type of thing a scorned woman might say of a cheating husband after a nasty divorce that didn’t exactly go her way: “Well, at least his reputation is tainted.” Or: “At least his coworkers know what a piece of [bleep] he is.”
Twitter was quick to pick up on the strangeness, too, trending #ImpeachedForLife shortly after her comments.
But Pelosi’s remarks are illuminating because they underscore her personal distaste for Trump the man, as well as Trump the president. They say, ha ha, you may have won with a Republican-dominated Senate, but you haven’t won in the history books.
In the end, in Pelosi’s mind, she gets her revenge.
But really, that’s hardly a demeanor fitting a speaker.
And it’s certainly not an attitude that serves the American people and the Constitution well — or first.

  1. And she got on to someone for asking her if she hated Trump.
