Face facts: The outcome of the 2020 presidential election is looking increasingly grim. Within the hour, Donald Trump’s lead in Georgia and Pennsylvania evaporated according to Fox News. Currently, the network has Joe Biden with a 6,000-vote lead in the Keystone State.
While it is hard to look for the silver lining in this outcome, one positive development is worth highlighting. According to the Daily Mail, House Democrats held a three-hour “venting session” on Thursday in which they torched Nancy Pelosi, blaming the losses the party suffered in the lower chamber on the speaker’s kowtowing to the “The Squad” and other far-left factions.

“We need to be pretty clear,” Rep. Abigail Spanberger, a Democrat from Virginia, is quoted as saying. “It was a failure. It was not a success. We lost incredible members of Congress. No one should say ‘defund the police’ ever again. Nobody should be talking about socialism.”
“Spanberger continued to unload on Democratic leaders, warning if the party kept up these tactics in 2022 election: ‘We will get f*cking torn apart.'”
As things stand, the election resulted in a pickup of least 13 House seats for Republicans, which translates to a net gain of 6 so far, and the Mail predicts the party may pick up a total of 10 seats once all votes are counted. This outcome is a wakeup call to Democrats, who had expected to pick up 10 to 15 seats themselves.
