One reason why Rep. Ted Lieu should stop tweeting …
Ok, there are literally a plethora of reasons he shouldn’t tweet but we had to play on his bizarre fanboy tweet about Nancy Pelosi.
Two reasons @NancyPelosi is about to become Speaker of the House:
1. She is awesome.
2. GOP ran on building the Wall and hating on immigrants. Dems ran on healthcare and infrastructure. #GOP got crushed by the largest vote margin in US history.#ElectionsHaveConsequences https://t.co/M6SvAIAtt7

We call SHENANIGANS on this tweet.
He left out:
- Trump all but endorsed Nancy Pelosi as Speaker and;
- GOP ran on SECURING borders and nobody has an issue with legal immigrants and;
- Yes, elections do have consequences as Democrats learned when their candidate lost to Trump in 2016
Ted. Dude. We’re onto you … get a new schtick.
Who cares if he ruffles feathers?
I want border security.
Politicians that do WHAT AMERICAN NEED.
I want an end to sanctuary cities.

This sort of thinking is insulting to my great-grandparents who immigrated from Sicily in 1912, legally.

This sort of thinking is totally cattywampus but it’s their messaging and talking points so, like a good little Democrat, Ted is tweeting what he’s supposed to.
*illegal immigrants. Also, we don't hate immigrants, we just want everybody to abide by the laws that those in our legislative branch have passed. You know…you guys. The wall is just a means of making illegal immigration easier to handle instead of having a porous border.

Nobody hates immigrants…
We don't want illegal immigrants..
We don't hate them either.
You Sir are a part of the problem.#BeBetter

Why do you have to be dishonest? Nobody in the Republican Party hates legal, legitimate immigrants. We don't even hate illegal immigrants. We just need our laws followed. When someone comes here illegally, they are breaking the law.

Sad news though for Ted, even Democrats don’t think Nancy is all that awesome.
Well we didn't ask for pay go Ted

I agree with you on everything but this. Revisit her decision to block hearings on Bush Cheney. She is bringing up the same things now. Rather than letting the law and constitution dictate action…her ego is getting in the way and she wants to decide what is best.

Pelosi is more about countering progressives than Trump. Her task will be to moderate Trump policies to make them palatable for the gullible cable networks while destroying the progressives. Democrats surrendered policy making to Republicans years ago. They just moderate

Way to go, Ted.
Tell me about how the GOP got crushed in the Senate? Enjoy your 2 years of majority in the house. It ends in 2020.

Hey, Teddy? How'd it go taking back the Sen…Oh wait. You didn't. Pipe down.

Guess elections still have consequences.
