Think about that for a second. What’s next?
If the voting age is eventually lowered to 16 when children are still highly politically ignorant, will 14 or 12 or 10 be that far off?House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) on Thursday said she has “always been for lowering the voting age to 16.”
Pelosi suggested it was important to get high schoolers involved in civics when they’re a captive audience.
Pelosi: “I myself, personally, not speaking for my caucus, I myself have always been for lowering the voting age to 16. I think it’s really important to capture kids when they’re in high school, when they’re interested in all of this, when they’re learning about government.”
English is not Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s first language. Wait, I wrote that wrong.
English is Speaker Pelosi’s first language.
What’s odd is how often she seems to misspeak publicly.
The House Speaker spoke to reporters today for only about 21 minutes, but there were plenty of strange moments as she botched words, suffered face spasms and brain freezes as she attacked President Trump’s proposed border wall and his leadership during the recent partial government shutdown.
Lamenting the recent partial government shutdown, Pelosi said, “Veterans, many of whom— a third of the Republican— federal employees…”
Pelosi: “Maybe we can do something to help our contractors, uh, because they did— are— not getting paid.”
The House Speaker attempted to read recent votes to reporters, and had trouble finding the right numbers in her notes.
Pelosi: “163— what is it, 163, uh, Democrats, uh, Republicans voted no to a resolution that says shutdowns are wrong.”
Pelosi: “163 voted, only 20, um, uh, 1 voted yes on that.”
MSNBC recently held a town hall with Pelosi. One person asked the pro-abortion “Catholic” if she supports the black lives matter movement.
Within Nancy’s long-winded response, she mentioned three words Democrats will absolutely hate.
“Well, I support the recognition that Black Lives Matter for sure and I have incorporated that in many of my statements. I think that all lives matter, yes, but it has—we really have to redress past grievances in terms of how we have addressed the African-American community.”
