The stress of watching Hillary Clinton lose the election and subsequently being forced to witness President Donald Trump undo Barack Obama’s legacy piece by piece appears to be taking a heavy toll on House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, who seems to be mentally deteriorating before our very eyes. Over the weekend, she tried to silence Trump, but thanks to her own stupidity, what happened instead was pure gold.
On Sunday, Pelosi tweeted, “Let’s just grow up. President Trump cannot be allowed to feel as if he can simply say whatever he wants, despite a lack of evidence.”
While the irony of this statement should have been glaringly obvious to the California Democrat, it apparently escaped her. Luckily, the good people of Twitter were around to point it out.
Yes, Ms. Pelosi. Let's grow up and legislate for the good of the country. Not obstruct for the good of your party or sp int's.

@NancyPelosi you said Obamacare was the the way to go, without a shred of evidence supporting your position. Hell, you never read the bill.

Indeed, Pelosi seems to say whatever she wants on a daily basis, without even a shred of concern as to whether any pesky evidence exists to support her claims. Trump, on the other hand, has never said anything without seeing the evidence first.
Let’s take, for example, the time that Pelosi fell for a fake tweet from a clearly-labeled parody Twitter account for former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn and actually cited it as fact during a live press conference.

One Twitter user even attributed Pelosi’s absurd antics to the “early stages of dementia.”

This certainly seems plausible, considering the increasing frequency with which Pelosi makes a complete fool out of herself. It also makes a great case for her retirement.
Pelosi herself recently stated that she was ready to retire had Hillary Clinton won the election, but now feels as though she has to stick around to protect Obamacare, the former president’s signature healthcare legislation which she helped usher in while Speaker of the House in 2010.
Unfortunately for the looney congresswoman, the GOP already has a new healthcare bill, and with a Republican majority in all branches of the government, it won’t be long before it passes. Pelosi should just go ahead and call it quits now. The only thing she’s contributing to the political scene at this point is a constant stream of gaffes and misinformation; she has become the laughingstock of Washington. It’s high time to pack it up and go home.
