A clearly angry House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was forced on Wednesday night to stop House Democrats from cheering their purely partisan impeachment of President Donald Trump following the vote as reports also surfaced that House Democrats were taking selfies.
“Article one is adopted,” Pelosi said. Immediately after she pounded her gavel, clapping broke out on the Democrats’ side, which prompted a death stare from Pelosi.
The Speaker clearly wasn’t pleased her caucus was stepping on her “solemn,” “sad” and “serious” narrative she proclaimed all day, while wearing black, as if attending a funeral — pretending this was anything but a ridiculous, partisan farce based on no evidence of wrongdoing by the president.
Clearly her fellow left-wing comrades didn’t get the memo, and she was none too pleased.
Politico Congressional bureau chief John Bresnahan observed, “Members taking selfies during impeachment vote.”
Democrats’ apparent glee over impeachment comes after they voted for the first time in U.S. history to impeach a president on a purely partisan basis, as only Democrats supported the effort.
However, there was a bipartisan effort that opposed impeachment, as all Republicans voted against it, multiple Democrats voted against it, and Democrat presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard voted “present.”
