“As Speaker of the House, I solemnly and sadly open the debate on the impeachment of the president of the United Stated.” So said Nancy Pelosi on Dec. 18, 2019, while standing next to a large piece of oaktag emblazoned with a drawing of the American flag and the words “to the Republic for which it stands.” She has repeated the same message countless times since right up until the moment she successfully concluded the vote to send the articles of impeachment over to the Senate.
It’s been obvious from the outset that Pelosi despises Donald Trump, this despite her claim that she hates no one. In fact, she would backed impeachment sooner had it been politically expedient to do so.
Admittedly, her grave composure softened slightly when she handed gold souvenir pens to Democratic committee heads. But it was on HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher” that the mask fell off altogether, revealing a beaming — and oh so hypocritical — House speaker.
For perhaps the fiftieth time, she uttered her new mantra to the president: “You are impeached forever.”

After her unseemly behavior for the past several months, “forever” is not a state that Pelosi, who claims to be a devout Catholic, should want to think about.
