It’s official: the Democrats have lost their minds, jumped the shark, sold the farm – however you want to phrase it, it’s painfully true. Just take a look at House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), who used a Sunday appearance on CNN’s “State of the Union” to accuse the mainstream media of helping Donald Trump win the election.
Pelosi kicked off the interview by blasting Trump as the “deflector-in-chief” for his claims that former President Barack Obama wiretapped him during the election and called the entire notion “ridiculous.” She even took a page from the liberal playbook and called Trump’s allegation “a tool of an authoritarian.”

Later, when host Jake Tapper called out Pelosi for apparently misremembering that she had visited with Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak and displayed a file photo contradicting her claims, Pelosi went on the defensive.
“We were meeting with the president of Russia. He brought on entourage in with him,” she feebly explained. “The question was, ‘have you met with him?’ No, I haven’t met with him. I met with the president of Russia. Who else was in his entourage – who knows?”
But the biggest stinker of the softball interview came when Tapper asked Pelosi whether Obama could have done more to take Russia to task for its alleged role in the WikiLeaks exposé.
“I think the press were accomplices in the undermining of our election by the Russians by not pointing out this stuff is worthless because it comes from an undermining of our election, or at least reminding the public where this — these emails, the leaking of these emails came from,” Pelosi offered up.
“So, I can’t speak to the timing of what President Obama said. I wish he — it had all happened in a time where the public could know that this had an impact on the election. A lot of things have an impact on the election. This certainly was one of them,” she concluded.
