Democrats, when asked on the street, don’t seem to know who their leaders are.
Maybe that’s because of delusional leaders like House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA).
After all, who would want to claim this kind of thought?

“Hip hip hooray!” Pelosi said, trying to mock the great economy under President Donald Trump, waving her arm around. “Unemployment is down. What does that mean to me and my life? I need a bigger paycheck.”
She continued, sometimes tripping over her words as she did so, as she is often wont to do.
“This isn’t just about the unemployment rate, it’s about wages rising in our country so that consumer confidence is restored. Because our economy will never fully reach our possibilities unless we increase our consumer confidence.”
James Woods, Donald Trump, Jr, Sen. Orrin Hatch and others dunked on Pelosi for her cluelessness.
Woods concluded that she had to be a “GOP plant.”
There may be a point there because it’s hard to believe anyone could say some of the things that come out of Pelosi’s mouth sometimes. She’s the gift that keeps on giving for Republicans.
Donald Trump, Jr. said it was “amazing” that this is what Democrats think.
Clever from Sen. Orrin Hatch’s office:
And Fox Business’ Trish Regan had a message for Pelosi after she showed her audience the clip of what Pelosi had said. “Consumer confidence is actually doing very well, ” she said, “We are actually nearing an 18-year high. So there goes that argument!”
From Biz Pac Review:
The Conference Board’s Consumer Confidence Index reached 128, rising 2.4 points in May, for the highest reading in more than 17 years, according to the organization.
“Unemployment is at an 18-year low so when she says, ‘Woop-de-do, unemployment is at such a low,’ it IS woop-de-do,” Regan mocked. “We should all be thrilled because we haven’t seen levels like this in 18 years.”
The unemployment rate dropped to an 18-year-low of 3.8 percent, as 223,000 jobs were added in May.
Regan also noted how the tax cuts and wage increases as a result had benefitted people, in addition to the increased number of jobs.
“Someone needs to tell her to stop, for the sake of the Democratic Party,” Regan joked. “She has no solution to economic challenges. She doesn’t care that the economy is improving. She doesn’t even understand that we are at an 18-year high when it comes to consumer confidence! ”
Regan concluded with a simple realization about Pelosi.
“She doesn’t understand economics and people vote their pocketbooks.” she said, noting that if she were a Democratic strategist she would be working hard at presenting a platform supportive of the average American and the improving economy.
“I’d want to find new blood. I’d want to find people that understand economics, I’d want to find people that understand what it’s like to have to pay the bills each week,” Regan said. “Nancy Pelosi needs to go back to school and try Econ 101.”
