• Biden, Pelosi Lose It Against Questioners: Get Off My Lawn!

    Surge Summary: Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi snap at questioners recently, confirming the caricature of irritable elderly folks.

    by Gary Bauer

    We’ve all heard stories or seen movies with the stereotypical old man yelling, “Get off my lawn!”  I usually don’t embrace stereotypes, but Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi, two Grumpy Old Politicians, really setback the reputation of the elderly [last] week.

    While campaigning in Iowa, Biden got a totally predictable question about his son’s work for a Ukrainian natural gas company.  Merle Gorman, who posed the question, is a Marine veteran, a retired farmer, an Elizabeth Warren supporter, and a little overweight.

    But Biden lost it.  He called Gorman “a damn liar,” appeared to call him “fat,” challenged him to a pushup contest and implied that Gorman was too sedentary.

    And then there was Speaker Nancy Pelosi.  As she was leaving [Thursday] morning’s press conference, a reporter shouted a legitimate question about whether she was pursuing impeachment simply because the left hates Donald Trump.

    Pelosi stopped, turned around and rushed back to the podium.  She denounced the reporter for asking such an offensive question, and claimed that as a Catholic she doesn’t hate anyone.

    Well, the Catholic Church does not believe in abortion either.  But Nancy Pelosi promotes abortion.  The Catholic Church does not believe in the redefinition of marriage and gender.  But Nancy Pelosi is all in on that too.

    And I don’t recall Pelosi denouncing progressives who routinely accuse men and women of faith (herehere and here) of being hate-filled bigots for believing in the sanctity of life and traditional marriage.
