Unsurprisingly, Nancy Pelosi is furious now that her second attempt to impeach Donald Trump on patently false and absurd charges has petered out.

After Trump’s acquittal was announced, the House impeachment managers held a presser. Pelosi desired to show up there unexpectedly and to vent her rage at her failure. She could even be seen visibly shaking in anger.

These people are unwell. Their hatred of Donald Trump—which is just a proxy for their hatred of Middle America and ordinary people—is psychotic.

Pelosi Has a Meltdown After Trump’s Acquittal

On February 13, Trump was officially acquitted in his impeachment trial. The Senate voted 57-43 in favor of convicting Trump of the charge of inciting a riot on January 6, but since that fails to meet the two-thirds majority required for an impeachment trial, Trump was acquitted.

After she crashed the press event, Pelosi said, “Oh these cowardly senators who couldn’t face up to what the president did and what was at stake for our country are now going to have a chance to give a little slap on the wrist.”

Absurdly, she added, “We don’t censure people for inciting insurrections.”

Of course, there’s no evidence that Trump ever did any such thing. First, the events of January 6 weren’t an “insurrection.” The Capitol Police allowed rioters into the Capitol building, and those who were inciting violence that day were BLM and Antifa members, not Trump supporters.

The only person who was killed as a direct result of what happened on January 6 was Ashli Babbitt, an Air Force veteran and Trump supporter who was shot and killed by a cop in D.C.

Secondly, Trump never “incited” anything. The Capitol was already being stormed before he had finished his speech on January 6. Moreover, Trump had offered to send 10,000 National Guard troops to D.C. to keep the peace on that day in case anything went wrong. Officials like D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser and Pelosi herself refused the offer.

Virtually every single aspect of this impeachment story is a lie, but Pelosi blamed Mitch McConnell for her failure.

The Elite’s Furious Struggle Against Populism

Pelosi is furious because she represents an out-of-touch elite who is desperate to maintain power by any means necessary—including through outright deception and fraud. Populism represents a challenge to the elite’s domination, and Trump is the obvious avatar of populism.

Pelosi and those like her think that if they can crush Trump and prevent him from running again in 2024, they’ll crush the grassroots populist rebellion going on against their domination.

Well, it didn’t work.

But always remember: That’s why Pelosi is so unhinged and angry. That’s why Democrats insist on making up phony and absurd impeachment charges. That’s why they had been trying to remove Trump from office since day one. That’s why Big Tech has been censoring conservative speech and banning people.

They’re not afraid of Trump so much as they are afraid of you.
