An elected official that’s responsible for ensuring the Democratic Party passes legislation in the House is prepared to order pest control to remove the president from his residence.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has controversially suggested she would use chemical gas to evict President Donald Trump from the White House by force.
“The fact is whether he knows it yet or not, he will be leaving,” she told MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” “It has nothing to do with the certain occupant of the White House does not feel like moving and has to be fumigated out of there because the presidency is the presidency.”
The Democrats will not wait for the incumbent to move out before holding candidate Joe Biden’s swearing-in ceremony, if the president does not win the 2020 general election on Nov. 3.
“Just because he might not want to move out of the White House does not mean we will not have an inauguration ceremony to inaugurate a duly elected president of the United States,” Pelosi said. “It is not geography or location so; so much for him.”
The House speaker revealed she has political ambitions of her own to occupy the Oval Office.
“You know, I am second in line to the presidency and, just last week, I had my regular continuation of government briefing,” she said. “This might interest you because I say to them, this is never going to happen, God willing it never will but there is a process.”
She previously overreacted to the president’s decision to proceed with his 2020 Make America Great Again Rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma, on June 20.
“What I am concerned about is the attitude of the president and the vice president of the United States. For the president to have this ego trip that he wants to take to Tulsa. To have a mass rally of people coming together, endangering their own health and the people that they go home to,” she said, according to Breitbart.
When CNN anchor Brianna Keilar showed a video of the president using both hands to lift a glass of water to drink, Pelosi suggested she does not make the president’s wellbeing a top priority.
“I have concerns about the health of the American people,” she said. “I have concerns about the statements the president has made, minimizing the risk that the coronavirus has made to their good health—that is what I am concerned about.”
