Libs get really upset about stuff… so it’s really no surprise that they get offended at each other’s comments aaaaall the time. In this case, however, Dem Whip Hoyer might actually have a point…
He’s calling Pelosi out on some idiotic comments about white guys… because yeah. They were dumb.
According to the Hill:
Democratic Whip Steny Hoyer (Md.) on Thursday blasted Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s (D-Calif.) remarks about white men working on an immigration agreement as “offensive.”
“The five white guys I call them, you know,” Pelosi said, referring to five bipartisan lawmakers, including Hoyer, leading efforts to salvage the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. All five of the male lawmakers are white.
“Are they going to open a hamburger stand next or what?” she said, referring to the popular fast food restaurant “Five Guys.”
What in the fresh hell? It’s truly painful to watch this woman. She looks like a drunk crazy person ran up to an empty podium and is now attempting a stand-up routine they had previously practiced on a half-eaten sandwich and a fermented jack-o-lantern named Will.
Will thought it was hilarious.
Anyway, Hoyer, who was one of the “white guys” in question, pushed back against the remarks.
“That comment is offensive. I am committed to ensuring DREAMers are protected and I will welcome everyone to the table who wants to get this done,” he told Politico in a statement, using the nickname referring to recipients of the DACA program.
Nope. You’re just a white guy. SOOORRRYYYYYY, but according to Democrats, you are incapable of making decisions from any perspective other than your white-guy-ness.
Hoyer was one of more than 20 bipartisan legislators from the House and Senate who met with President Trump on Tuesday to discuss a possible deal on the Obama-era program, which will expire in March.
Pelosi earlier this week suggested it was a mistake not to include minority representatives in the discussions.
“The sensitivity even on the wording is really important [and] for people who are engaged in these issues to be there at the table. They’ve been working on it in a bipartisan way for a long time,” Pelosi said.
Hoyer maintained that no agreement came out of the meeting, though Senate Democrats suggested there was a preliminary agreement on Republican demands for enhanced border security and immigration policy changes.
I don’t understand this whole “white men are unable to make decisions that impact anyone other than other white men” attitude the Dems have decided to adopt.
Why then, do they keep running white men to ANY of their seats? Why is Chuck Schumer around? Why did they run Doug Jones in Alabama?
If white men are so absolutely incompetent that they cannot make any decisions, why don’t they just go ahead and kick them all out of their party?
HECK! Why is Hoyer the Democratic Whip?
WHY NANCY?!?!!? WHY?
This is all so stupid.
