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.

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.

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.

Here is the mud.

Read it and weep.

The world is watching our party. The whole wide fucking world. Our nation is teetering on the very edge and these #FiveWhiteGuys want to cliche away our moment.


We have the opportunity to be the example right now. To truly lead.

But no, these #FiveWhiteGuys.

There is no possible argument that will convince me that this moment of transition and import should be led by anyone other than the most experienced and qualified among us.

That is certainly not one of these #FiveWhiteGuys.

That person is @NancyPelosi.


No one expects that @NancyPelosi will be Speaker forever, especially the woman herself.

But we can do this right.

Give her these next two years. Let's identify our most talented. Allow her to help our next Speaker step into the job ready.




That serves the party, the nation and the next Speaker well.

These #FiveWhiteGuys need to have a seat and we all need to tell them this definitively.

And now.



Tell them.
