With just six weeks until November’s Midterm elections Nancy Pelosi is fighting for her political life.
At 82-years-old she knows that if Democrats lose their majority it will end her career in power.
And now Nancy Pelosi flew off the hinges after Chuck Schumer made this shocking admission.
There’s always someone listening
Despite the Republican establishment’s best efforts, many political analysts are predicting that Republicans will pick up just enough seats to gain the majority in the U.S. House.
Of course, as far as Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is concerned, that’s not the case.
Less than two weeks ago, Speaker Pelosi told Punchbowl News that Democrats would “indeed” gain seats and keep their majority in the House.
In fact, Pelosi went so far as to say Democrats have believed they would remain in control of the House since January 6, and suggested the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade only boosted their momentum.
“So when the Dobbs decision came down, it wasn’t one of those ‘If only we had known,’” Speaker Pelosi told Punchbowl News. “No. We believed we were going to win from January 6 on.”
But apparently, not every Democrat is as optimistic as Speaker Pelosi — namely, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY).
According to reports, while at a private dinner with six other Democrat Senators at a pricey Washington, D.C. restaurant, Senator Schumer declared that Speaker Pelosi is “in trouble” as he believes House Democrats are on their way to losing the majority.
“Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer privately told a group of Democratic senators Monday night that Speaker Nancy Pelosi is ‘in trouble’ and Democrats are going to lose the House,” Punchbowl News reported. “ . . . The comments are in stark contrast to Pelosi’s declaration in recent days that not only would Democrats keep the House but they’d add to their slim majority.”
Apparently, while at the dinner with Democrat Senators Chris Coons (D-DE), Mark Kelly (D-AZ), Chris Van Hollen (D-MD), Tom Carper (D-DE), John Hickenlooper (D-CO), and Dick Durbin (D-IL), Senator Schumer and the boys were so rowdy, other restaurant patrons could hear everything they said.
He also claimed that disgraced former New York Democrat Governor Andrew Cuomo was responsible for the state’s new Congressional Districts, which accounted for Democrats’ inability to pick up seats in the House.
How exactly Cuomo could have helped Democrats outside of breaking the law and illegally gerrymandering the state, no one knows – but obviously, it wouldn’t be a first for Democrats.
And on top of putting Pelosi and Democrats’ odds of keeping the House at just 40%, Senator Schumer also unleashed his opinion on a whole range of topics.
Schumer tells all
Additionally, Schumer apparently bragged that Democrats were destined to keep their majority in the Senate, claiming they had a 60% chance of defeating Republicans despite the numerous failures caused by their extremist left-wing agenda.
He also rightly pointed out — even with Arizona Senator Mark Kelly, who’s up for re-election, at the table — that the Arizona Senate race was a concern if more money came into the race.
“With Kelly at the table, Schumer said the Arizona Senate race would tighten if tech billionaire Peter Thiel started spending money to boost Republican Blake Masters,” Punchbowl News reported.
Of course, Thiel wouldn’t have to pony up even more than the more than $15 million he’s reportedly already spent to help boost Masters if Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-AZ) hadn’t already totally pulled out of the race.
McConnell chose to pull millions of dollars donated to elect Republicans to the Senate from Arizona in order to get back at Masters for publicly speaking out against several decisions he’s made as Minority Leader, and to stop yet another candidate endorsed by former President Donald Trump from being elected, according to The Washington Post.
Punchbowl News also reported that Senator Schumer went on to claim that House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy “sucked up” to Trump, and that he believed the former President would, in fact, run for President in 2024.
The difference in Democrats’ confident public talking points versus what they’re actually saying when (they think) no one is listening is rather noteworthy, though.
As mentioned, Senator McConnell has already waved the white flag on Republicans taking back the Senate, pulling money from key battleground states.
But if Schumer is only putting Democrats’ odds at keeping the Senate at 60%, that’s a major opportunity for conservative voters to show up in droves across the nation and send Washington, D.C. a major message.
And while she may pretend to be confident, there’s no doubt Nancy Pelosi is shaking in her boots.
Maybe that Italian Ambassadorship President Biden has reportedly held for her isn’t that far away after all.
