There is a certain type of person who performs mental acrobatics to ensure that their worldview is never shattered. They will bend the truth and lies together in their own minds to retain what they see as a moral superiority over others. And this has never been more evident than in the case of Nancy Pelosi.
You will recall that when Roy Moore was running for the Alabama Senate seat and accusations came out about alleged sexual misconduct with a child, Pelosi was swift and damning in her condemnation stating that child molesters should get zero tolerance. She then demanded that he step down from the race:
“Women have spoken out. Their concerns will be addressed in a way that I think will give comfort, as well as end this behavior. … Because you know what? It’s disgusting, it’s repulsive, and it has to be zero tolerance.”
Well, what about Tony Cardenas?
The Democrat has been accused of drugging and sexually exploiting a teenage girl. And these are just accusations at present that Cardenas denies vehemently. But the situations are shockingly similar to the matter of Roy Moore. So why isn't Nancy Pelosi calling for him to step down and resign? Why is she merely asking that a Senate committee takes place (which essentially means bury it and forget about it)?
Could it be possible that her posturing on Roy Moore was nothing but political point scoring? Surely she wouldn't condemn a man and his entire life just to get one over on the Republicans would she?
