Nancy Pelosi: Americans Are Stupid

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) recently expressed concerns that the American public is not smart enough to truly understand the impeachment process.

Pelosi has been hesitant to push for impeachment along with fellow members of her party. Prior to the 2018 midterm elections and Mueller report results, Pelosi promised impeachment was “off the table.”

However, Pelosi seemed to have a change of heart last month and accused Trump of being involved in a "cover-up."

Pelosi reportedly said in a closed-door meeting that she feels most Americans are not smart enough to fully understand the impeachment process, according to the Daily Beast.

The report read:

"The Speaker, according to two sources with knowledge of the meeting, expressed concerns that the public still doesn’t understand how the process of impeachment would play out. She noted that in her time over the recess in California well educated voters didn’t seem to understand that impeachment proceedings would not necessarily result in Trump’s immediate ouster from office."
