Pelosi Admits Bernie Sanders Won’t Hurt The Party By Leading The Ticket


Yesterday while she was leaving a closed door
meeting in the House of Representatives, reporters went up to Nancy Pelosi and asked her if she
would be comfortable with Bernie Sanders being at the top of the Democratic ticket and there
was a good reason that reporters would want to ask this question. For the last week or so, we have seen lots
of attacks coming from the, I guess establishment side, saying that Bernie Sanders is categorically
going to destroy down ballot races if we put him on the top of the ticket. Now, bear in mind, there is absolutely no
data whatsoever to support this claim, but we have seen it from all kinds of blue check
marks on Twitter who described themselves as political consultants, MSNBC contributors,
yada, yada, yada. I advised this person, but oops, they lost. But trust me, I’m totally right about this
one. Anyway, so reporters went up to Pelosi and
said, hey, okay, obviously this is going around or are you concerned about this? Are you comfortable with Bernie Sanders being
at the top of the ticket? And Nancy Pelosi gave you a one word answer. Yes. Are you comfortable with Bernie Sanders being
at the top of the ticket? And Nancy Pelosi said, yes. So reporters then later in the day found Chuck
Schumer and they said, hey, Chuck, same question. You okay with this? And Chuck Schumer also said, yeah. In fact, Chuck actually went a little further
than just the one word response. He said, yeah, I’m comfortable with any of
these people. We’ve got great people running. I think all of them will beat Donald Trump. I haven’t supported anybody. I’m not going to until we know who the nominee
is, but I’m cool with all of them bye. Okay, so is that going to kinda calm the fears
of all these establishment types when you have the two leaders of the Democratic party,
the House and the Senate who come out and say, yeah, I’m fine with this guys, and they
should be fine with it. Because as I mentioned, there’s no data out
there that says that Bernie Sanders is going to hurt down ballot races. I mean, think about Hillary Clinton for a
second, okay. Hillary Clinton was the establishment choice. All the superdelegates already backed her
back in 2015, okay. So she had the establishment support that,
that’s not, you know, arguable it was there. They wanted her to be the nominee. So then 2016 rolls around, obviously Hillary
Clinton loses, but she wins the popular vote. So does that mean the Democrats swept and
took back the House and the Senate? No, they didn’t. And they actually could have taken back the
Senate because there were more Republicans up for reelection in 2016 then there were
Democrats. And you know how many of those Senate seats
the Democrats won with Hillary Clinton at the top of the ticket? Two, they won two. Certainly didn’t take the majority back. So Hillary Clinton didn’t really help out
there. You know how many house seats the Democrats
picked up in 2016 with Hillary Clinton at the top of the ticket? Six, just six. Six out of over 400 seats, folks, and Hillary
Clinton sitting at the top of that tip, ticket, even with the popular vote only picked up
six. So can we stop with that? Can we stop pretending like there’s some kind
of conventional wisdom that can accurately predict how the top of the ticket is going
to perform because there’s not folks. There is no more conventional wisdom about
anything. Even the polling data is not always accurate
as 2016 also proved to us. The leaders in the Democratic party right
now, at least the elected leaders who are actually serving constituents, they’re okay
with Bernie Sanders being at the top of the ticket. So I encourage all of those blue check marks
on Twitter who are still freaking out and making up these insane lies that Bernie is
somehow gonna hurt down ballot races, you need to get in line with your party because
they’re okay with Bernie being the front runner. So you should be too.

  1. JOE BIDEN IS AT LEAST 20 POINTS AHEAD OF BERNIE IN SOUTH CAROLINA, AND POLLS OF SUPER TUESDAY STATES THAT ARE MORE MODERATE HAVE BIDEN & BLOOMBERG, 10-20 PTS HIGHER THAN BERNIE!! Bernie will have a damn hard time going above Biden, in any of the Southern States, plus States in North with many African Americans, like Detroit MI, WI already shows Biden ahead too. Those very Important Midwest Swing States all have Joe Biden leading!!!!

  2. I believe Bernie would actually help down-ballot races. If he’s able to generate huge turnout for the election, you’ll have more people voting Democrat in the precincts that he wins. More importantly the people voting for him know that they’ll have a better chance getting his agenda passed with a Democrat-controlled congress than a Republican-controlled congress.

  3. Farron tries to make sense of a crap shoot…….I guess it keeps beans on the table for him. He doesn't know anymore than you or I do. I just had to tune in to him to listen to his daily (hourly?) ration of bitching and whining. Any one of the candidates would be better than Trump….IF, and it's a BIG IF, we Dems don't do Trump's job for him by knifing each other. That said, at this point, I can see four more years of that Orange Amoral Creep. I suppose I just put a target on my back…..what the hay!

  4. The biggest issue for this election is getting the most despised president EVER, and all of his enablers out of this government. If Bernie is at the top the rest of us MUST show up and vote down the ballot for all BLUE. Stop screaming! We actually don't need moderate republicans. All of the rest of us who have been paying attention to the obvious corruption, cronyism, nepotism and yes, TREASON should have no problem voting for Bernie's dog if that's who gets the nomination.

  5. He is not just the 'frontrunner' Bernie is walking it!
    Bernie leads in the polls and the hearts and the minds of We The People. BERNIE2020
    If for any reason Bernie is not on the ballot I will write him in!

  6. Why would anybody believe Nanny P? She's been a proven Liar for years… The thing is, she knows Bernie isn't going to be the Nominee and she's tired of hearding a bunch of uncooperative cats… She is way past her 'Use By' date… Hell, so is Bernie…

  7. Superdelegates are the ones that will hurt the party..
    they even admit they wont give Bernie the nomination without a majority..
    nevermind they have ALWAYS given it to the peoples nomination before but this time they wont..
    Bernie has said everytime; the peoples vote should matter & the votes from the states they win be given but DNC doesnt care..

  8. It doesn't matter. South Carolina is in two days. If Bernie wins it's over, they will have no path to stop him. If Biden wins, he would have to completely slaughter Bernie and beat him by a minimum of ten to fifteen points as he has no money and his support has dried up. PPlus Biden has made such a deal that this is his firewall, if the messes it up he's done.

    If Bernie wins SC, super Tuesday will be great for us.

  9. And of course this idiot doesn't realize that Nancy Pelosi, is insane. And why are all of the big donors and big people in the Democratic Party, scared and worried.

  10. Bernie Sanders is America's only hope because he will not back down on his principals because he is accountable for his morality and isn't afraid to tell you that and the immorality of vulture capitalism and unrestrained commerce.

  11. How does he hurt? .most people vote straight tickets. So if they voteing Bernie. They well most likely Democrat down ticket. That why Trump carried alot down tickets.

  12. I actually got a snicker out of your little ending bit there. Don’t know why. Politics is so serious, I guess seeing those most involved with it messing around let’s me ease up once in a while. Relax for now because from dawn til dusk we’ll be fighting to give these nutcases a reason to believe America is for more than one person at the top.

  13. Who are these super delegates? i just read today that people like Walter Mondale and Chris Dodd are, and they said they will vote for whoever they think is best for the party, what does that mean?

  14. Great information! Stay focused! Crime and Corruption in the White House since 2016, Crime Boss Trump and the Russian Republican Enablers have caused this Nightmare. Vote Out The Russian Wannabe Dictator Trump or get ready for a Horror Story including the demise of America if Trump wins 2020. VOTE BLUE 2020!!

  15. Both Warren and Biden have been caught out bending the truth, and when confronted, they have both continued lying. Their credibility and integrity have been severely damaged! Bernie has been truthful! Only a truthful person will be able to challenge Trump successfully, because the entire world is so tired of all the Trump lies. Bernie is a good and decent man; he is strong; his policies are the best policies! Idiots who claim his policies are 3rd world level and are dangerous, are so ignorant – that’s why they are Trump supporters!

  16. Dear lady Nancy, might I suggest that you introduce a bill to have Da 🔥 we ❤️ protected , with just as much or more — secret service agents as is used by da orange loudmouth cowardly traitor?

  17. Pelosi statement today that "she will support nominee" tells me they have all been assured that BERNIE will not get Democrat nomination. So this is all an act to demonstrate that they were not biased at all. I predict fewer and fewer smears/attacks from the establishment in the coming weeks. If my prediction is correct my statement will be evident in this. When's the latest a candidate change parties? Please anybody. BERNIE 2020!

  18. Doesn't really matter the college electoral has a final say and everything is proven back in 2016 when Trump versus Hillary was going on.

    Sadly if it wasn't for the college electoral then Hillary Clinton would be our president currently but that's not the case and I'm only assuming that Trump will get another four years unless something magical happens but it's doubtful.

  19. I agree here. The media saying Bernie will lose and cause the loss of all house and senate seats is ridiculous. The Democratic Party isn’t a party of follow the cult leader. The senate and house seats will do their own thing. Maybe just don’t endorse anyone on the red states to be safe.

  20. I trust Nancy Pelosi before i trust the Dems attacking Bernie.. I voted Blue.. I and all 4 members my household voted for Bernie.. so suck it up DEMS..

  21. Don't be ignorant. She is cool with the idea because they are confident that Bernie will only get a plurality of the delegates and their Superdelegates will come in to make things right for them. It's a certain way to calm down the masses. Bernie has to get a majority of delegates on the first ballot.

  22. Establishment won't stop, it means heavy losses under Sanders, economic prosperity fundamentally shifting in favor of middle class, of course establishment isn't gonna give up, would Trump? Sanders is saying he will fund his policies from taking money from the rich, that includes media companies. So i would count on CNN or MSNBC sneaking in attacks to hurt Sanders. At least Fox news calls it straight, even when it's bullshit, CNN and co prefer the passive aggressive approach.

  23. That's what that b** is supposed to say in public..I don't trust her as far as I can throw her.. Hope Shahid Butar beats her in SF Cali

  24. Bernie is the Best Chance the Dems have against trumps (racist conservative hypocrite) Republican supporters💁🏼‍♀️ #Bernie2020🇺🇸🥰

  25. She said this bull in public, knowing full well that superdicks will steal his nomination. Sorta how Moscow mitch sends a "nutural looking republican" like Collins to say "I think we need to see more evidence" but when it comes to the actual vote, they do exactly what mitch told them to do.

  26. It don’t matter what these fools think! They keep trying to interfere with the vote of Americans! We have enough interference with trump and Russia, don’t need DNC and msnbc and cnn interfering too!

  27. I think that if the Democrats tried to steal the presidency away from Bernie Sanders that that is actually going to hurt the down ballot. I think it will actually destroy the Democratic Party forever.

  28. FANCY NANCY & CHUCKIE CHEESE ARE SAYING THAT JUST TO LET ALL THE DNC OLIGARCHS THAT THEY ARE THE ONES STILL IN CHARGE AND STILL HAVE ALL THE CONTROL OF LOBBYIST MONEY…THEY KNOW BERNIE NEEDS THEIR SUPPORT AS MUCH AS THEY NEED HIS…ITS IN EVERYBODYS BEST INTEREST TO GET CONTROL OF SENATE, BERNIE WILL GET NOTHING PASSED WITHOUT MAJORITY IN SENATE AND HOUSE…THIS HOW IT WORKS…THEY ALSO HAVE NO CHOICE, BUT TO SAY THAT…AFTER TUESDAY MAYBE EVEN BEFORE, SENATORS AND HOUSE MEMBERS SHOULD START TO ENDORSE BERNIE, ITS CALLED FALLING IN LINE…THEY ALSO HAVE LEGISLATION FOR THEIR OWN STATES THEY WANT BERNIE TO SIGN..CALLED..PORK…BERNIE SHUD START TO SWEEP EACH STATE AFTER SC. IF NOT , & DNC STEALS NOM. FROM BERNIE , CHUCK & NANC NO THEY CUD VERY WELL LOSE CONTROL OF HOUSE WITH MAJORITY IN HANDS OF THE GROWING PROGRESSIVE CAUCUS …[THE SQUAD] THEN AOC MIGHT JUST GET …SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE….OOOOOO…FEEL THE BERN NOW DONCHA FANCY NANCY…THATS GONNA LEAVE A MARK…LETS NOT FORGET SCOTUS…RBG WUD NOT BE VERY HAPPY WITH DNC…SHE WUD MAKE THEM PAY IN WAYS UNIMAGINABLE ….SHE WILL TEACH THEM ABOUT RESPECT

  29. If people really wants trump gone we will support whoever the nominee is. The alternative is 4 more years of craziness and dictatorship.

  30. Good report. I learn a lot listening to this guy. Keep doing what you do . I'm sure a lot of people are also learning this way. Vote Bernie Sanders.
    The only honest candidate

  31. Beware, I see some coments paid by the usual suspects, russia, fox, china, north korea, trump, bloomberg, only to provoke and confuse. Focus: vote bernie Sanders

  32. HOW WOULD SHE KNOW? THIS HAS NEVER HAPPENED IN THE HISTORY OF THE U.S. PELOSI IS JUST A SENILE DECREPIT WHO SHOULDN'T BE WORKING FOR OUR GOVERNMENT. SMH

  33. IF BERNIE WINS? I'M OUTTA HERE AND MOVING TO MEXICO FOR THE NEXT FOUR YEARS AND WAIT IT OUT. AIN'T NO WAY IN HELL I'M PAYING HIGHER TAXES!

  34. Well… the Dems lost 1000 seats around the country during Obama…
    Pelosi could hardly say "fuck the electorate"… question is how they act??

  35. They're hedging their bets. They want the Superdelegates to pick anyone over Bernie and will rig the election against him, but Bernie's movement is strong, and if victorious, then their favorable commentary will curry favor with a Sanders presidency.
    If Bernie fails, then they will say that he was the wrong guy all along and the American people should have listened to them and picked an establishment-favoring centrist.

  36. Nancy Pelosi and Schmuck are lying their asses off when they say they're okay with Bernie taking the lead.

    I like to see what they'd say now if their super delegate nuke option was swiped away from under their noses. 😈 You think they'd stick to their answers from before?

  37. I have NEVER HAD a Friend in My Life!!! &
    I Have Always been an Honest Person!!!
    Justin Martyr; Bus Line #51; Eugene, Oregon

  38. Really? Pelosi & Schumer are counting on the superdelegates to cheat the American people again! They don’t want to give up their meal ticket. Lying, cheating, stealing bastards.
