The response to President Donald Trump’s border security address from Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) was a disaster and became an instant meme classic.
Their horrible appearance just went viral and inspired all kinds of hilarious memes.
Some in media like Brian Williams and James Carville admitted how awful it was.
From Daily Wire:
“Tell me why responses are so bad,” Williams said to Carville. “Tonight, this Chuck and Nancy visual tonight launched 1,000 memes while they were still talking. There was an American gothic meme. There was ‘your mother and I are very upset you stayed out so late’ meme.”
Mentioning past poorly done response videos from the likes of Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) and former Gov. Bobby Jindal (R-LA), Williams emphasized: “But this visual from tonight goes down in the pantheon.”
Carville said it was clear Schumer and Pelosi didn’t want to be there, though he noted that response videos like this “seldom, if ever, work.”
“He didn’t want to be there,” Carville said of Schumer specifically. “I’ve been more excited about colonoscopies than he was giving the speech tonight. He didn’t want to be there.”
When even those guys know it was bad, it’s bad.
But Huffington Post just couldn’t stop pushing the narrative.
Check out how they characterized them:
An instant hit? Well, if you mean hilariously bad, maybe.
The HuffPo said that “the president spent much of his prime-time address repeating lies” and said they gave a “powerful rebuttal” while “schooling the president.”
Uh, yeah, no.
But it’s perhaps not surprising that HuffPo has this twisted attitude of reality.
Look at the banner they have on their Twitter account.
