House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi struggled recently to answer a simple question, and while that isn’t anything new, her answer evidenced how pathetic the state of the Democrat Party really is.
“Who is the leader of the Democratic Party?” CNN host Anderson Cooper asked Pelosi on Tuesday.
“Well, President Obama was the president of the United States until just a matter of weeks ago. I don’t think that he can be dismissed as the leader of the Democratic Party,” she said.
Pelosi then came up with another name: “Hillary Clinton did not win the election, but a respected leader.”
Now that’s just sad. Their “leaders” are a two-time loser who was abysmal in every public position she has held — and, frankly, is a miserable person in general — and a former president that the American people roundly repudiated in 2016.
Great work, Dems!
“So there is not one standard-bearer that you see as the leader of the Democratic Party?” Cooper asked.
“We’re not in a presidential time,” Pelosi responded.
Twitter took notice of the laughable answers:

Pelosi then attempted to play down the mess her party has become.
“We have leaders for all different aspects of it. The Democratic Party is a congressional party, and we have members in Congress. It is a gubernatorial party,” she said.
“But on the state level, it is a party which has suffered tremendous losses in the last couple of years under President Obama,” Cooper countered.
“It has, but we have a plan to address that,” Pelosi responded.
Yeah, it’s a pathetic mess, but don’t worry, we’ve got a plan!
I’d love to know where that plan is, because the Democrat National Committee recently elected a new chairman, former Secretary of Labor Tom Perez, yet Pelosi didn’t think to name him as one of the leaders of the party.
That doesn’t bode well for their decision, nor the future of the party.
