Pelosi to Dems: ‘You Have to Be Ready to Throw a Punch … for the Children’

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) issued a rather strange declaration to Democrats on Friday at a DNC summer meeting in San Francisco. In saying that the 2020 presidential campaign will be tough, Pelosi said that Democrats will “have to be ready to throw a punch—for the children.”

“This is going to be a tough election, because for them this is going to be about money. They’ll put up any amount of money to protect their investment of degrading the environment, and the rest, guns and all that,” she said at the Democratic National Committee’s (DNC) summer meeting Friday.

“So you have to be ready to take a punch. You got to be ready to take a punch. And therefore you have to be ready to throw a punch – for the children.”

Some responses include:

  • “Aren’t these the people who said a target on an electoral map was directly responsible for a shooting?”
  • “Throwing punches for children.’ — Dem slogan, 2020.”
  • “Inciting violence? People will take this literally. Not a good look in these dangerous times.”
  • “More violent rhetoric from the left.”
  • “Every draconian thing is history as been proceeded by ‘it’s for the children.’”

“So are we ready to win have we decided that we are going to debate our differences, unified behind our candidates?” the Democrat continued. “Are we going to strengthen our majority in the house? To win the United States Senate for the American people?”
