Yet another example of @NancyPelosi’s skills:

The #FiveWhiteGuys organizing opposition to Pelosi’s speakership have been pressuring Rep. Marcia Fudge to run against her.

Pelosi taps Fudge to chair Elections subcommittee.

Fudge now backs Pelosi.

💥BOOM💥

h/t @BresPolitico
To paraphrase @FeministaJones, those guys might be new to Pelosi, but Pelosi is not new to this.
It’s almost like Nancy Pelosi actually knows what she’s doing, @sethmoulton and @RepLipinski.

Imagine that.

Time to review the finances of the #FiveWhiteGuys

Let's start with @sethmoulton

Over $600,000 in PAC money....

Over $1.3 million in large donations...
Next up we have @TimRyan

Again, over $600,000 IN PAC funding.

Over $700,000 in large donations...
Looks like the #FiveWhiteGuys really love their PAC money...

Isn't that right @RepBillFoster ?

Again, over $750,000 in PAC money.

Close to $1.3 million in large donations.

A) A reminder that #FiveWhiteGuys, all Democrats, are trying to take down Nancy Pelosi for no other reason than to feed their massive egos. Let's take a look at the five scumbags...
B) First off..ringleader @sethmoulton. Seth has gone from humble marine to A+ misogynistic scumbag. Seth is misguided, he thinks trying to destroy Pelosi is going to make him a presidential contender or help him win a Senate seat. All its going to get him his a primary challenge
C) Next up, the slimy disgusting @TimRyan. Tim could only put together 63 votes when he tried to run against Pelosi last time. Tim wants Pelosi to go but the truth is he is known as a lazy sloppy member of congress who doesn't like to put in the work. He's a party boy. Typical.

If you call yourself a "Berniecrat" you can't be trusted because your loyalty is with someone who isn't even a party member. The second part is just as silly, since most Democrats consider the #FiveWhiteGuys challenge to Pelosi a bullshit power play that needs to be smashed.
He's conflating media support for the #FiveWhiteGuys with actual support from within the party, but anyway
Also a bit of a tell when he voluntarily equates his so-called Berniecrats with an attempted coup by white male centrists.

The issues swirling around the #FiveWhiteGuys are larger than just @NancyPelosi.

It's their tactics, and it's the threats they've had the fucking audacity, to leverage against the party and the entire nation.

In my opinion each one of these men should face a #recall vote.

1/
The idea that a small minority would hijack any part of the democratic process given what we've gone through the past three years is unimaginable.

And changing the rules midstream because you are not happy with the outcome a fair vote will get?

Seriously?

2/
That's straight up Republican bullshit right there. That's Tea Party, #BananaRepublic, anti-democratic tomfoolery.

It has no place in this nation, nevermind the Democratic Party, currently charged with the protection of American democracy itself.

It gets worse.

You brought the smear Ms. Ortiz.

Tossing in an opinion piece from a rag like The Intercept is not actually evidence to support a claim that she is the wrong leader at this time.

First, most of the Democratic caucus supports @NancyPelosi and they trust her.
@kortizart

Second, what about anything @NancyPelosi has ever done, said, or Tweeted would lead you to believe that she won't look Trump in the eye and tell him exactly what's what everytime it is necessary?
She is an unflinching critic of Trump, that will not change.
@kortizart

Speaker Pelosi understands the power of rhetoric and the power of the public forum. She is leading by example.

Trump's words have led people to violence, divided our nation, and polluted the public discourse.

She is being exactly the leader we need.

Man this is making me angry. You have Chuck Schumer, who's constitutionally incapable of standing up to Trump and is determined to sell us out to Facebook, waltzing to another term, while Nancy Pelosi, who passed freakin' Obamacare, is getting challenged huffingtonpost.com/entry/nancy-pe…
Thread. So the #FiveWhiteGuys leading this brigade against Nancy Pelosi more or less have an Underpants Gnomes strategy. Let's take a look at what they're up to.
Pelosi is guaranteed to pass her first hurdle: a vote of the Democratic caucus. In Dec. 2016, Pelosi turned back an insurrection by OH Rep. Tim Ryan, one of the #FiveWhiteGuys, winning 134-63. She'll win again this time—no one is even running against her cnn.com/2016/11/30/pol…

Real talk.

The right as spent years trying to paint @NancyPelosi & @HillaryClinton as extreme leftists who will take your guns, sterilize your sons, outlaw Christianity, and tax you at 80%.

Meanwhile...

The far left has tried to insist that they were both Republican-lite.

1/
Some on the far left call them war mongering neoliberal corporate owned whores.

That's on a good day, for both.

None of these charges, by either side, are remotely true of course. Not that this matters to the people putting this shit out there.

2/
The facts are these.

@HillaryClinton and @NancyPelosi have been fighting people, usually white men, for tnings their entire lives.

With little respite.

At times they have had to make impossible choices and compromises just to beo let in the door. Most women have.

Friends from Marblehead (and beyond) - please call Seth Molton's office and tell him to stop this nonsense he is running to unseat Pelosi as leader. This is not the time to experiment with a newbie when our democracy is literally at stake.
(978) 531-1669 and (202) 225-8020
Per @CharlesPPierce, it is 5 white guys agitating for this: the #FiveWhiteGuys are Moulton, Ryan, Ed Perlmutter of Colorado, Kurt Schrader of Oregon, and Bill Foster of Illinois. Great - women just did the heavy lifting and mostly women won, but 5 white guys coming to "save us"
I will say this to @sethmoulton @RepPerlmutter @RepSchrader @RepBillFoster, and @RepTimRyan you stay on this divisive path on Pelosi, I will make it my biz to find women to primary each of u in 2020. You can ask the NY IDC - 6 of 8 lost their primary in 2018 - if I mean business!

This is not good news.

These #FiveWhiteGuys

@RepTimRyan, @sethmoulton, @RepPerlmutter, @RepSchrader and @RepBillFoster are leading a small group with tea party tactics to change the rules for how House Speaker is elected.

They are fighting to take down @NancyPelosi.

1/
These #FiveWhiteGuys are willing to go nuclear in order keep the woman most responsible for leading us to, what turned out to be, the greatest Congressional #BlueWave in our party's history from the office she is the most qualified for, by leagues.

Damn, 2016 on repeat.

2/
Because #FiveWhiteGuys ganging up on a far superior woman is just great optics for our new Democrratic majority to embrace.

I thought that shit had happened enough TO our
party, now we have it IN our party.

Such fun, except actually the exact opposite of that.
