It’s hard to imagine Washington D.C. without the illustrious Nancy Pelosi who has infected the country with her hypocritical style of governance, hilarious public gaffes, and unmistakable beauty and grace.
On Monday, the Washington Post (of all news outlets) exposed Nancy Pelosi’s retirement plans, claiming the old witch plans to “step down” after the inevitable trouncing Democrats are expected to take during the 2022 midterm elections.
“After almost 19 years as House Democratic leader, Speaker Nancy Pelosi is expected to step down at the close of this Congress, ending a historic career that included trying to end George W. Bush’s Iraq War, implementing President Barack Obama’s signature health-care law, impeaching President Donald Trump twice and squeezing President Biden’s sweeping agenda through a narrowly controlled House,” the Post wrote.
The article also discussed some of the party’s suggested replacements. New York Democratic Rep. Hakeem Jeffries was noted as “the early favorite.”
Majority Leader Steny H. Hoyer and Majority Whip James Clyburn would certainly rank in the discussions as well, though the report suggested some Democrats are ready for new leadership.
However, Democrats have shot themselves in the foot with their endless woke signaling because progressives are expecting minority representation in party leadership despite more senior members jockeying for the Pelosi’s position.
That leaves White men who are mulling a run — such as Hoyer and Rep. Adam B. Schiff — in a difficult spot with a party that is looking for more diversity at the top. It is also to the benefit of Jeffries, who would be the first Black person to lead either party in either chamber.
The mention of Pelosi retiring ranks among one of the strongest reports to date regarding the future plans of the current House speaker, as well as who will lead in the future.
The House Speaker is usually replaced by his/her right hands, the majority leader, Steny Hoyer, and majority whip, Jim Clyburn. However, both of them, like Pelosi, are in their early 80s, which has sparked questions about whether it may be time for some fresh faces to manage the House Democratic caucus.
Pelosi also recently came under fire for her comments about lawmakers and their spouses being able to own stock.
Listen to how quickly Pelosi said “No” to the question of wether Members of Congress and their spouses should be banned from owning stock.
Pelosi’s salary is $223,500
Her net worth is about $100 million.

Just days after making the remarks, starting on December 17th and going through the 21st, Pelosi and her husband bought millions of dollars worth of call options for stocks including Google, Salesforce, Roblox, and Disney.
