Democratic U.S. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi is “the greatest female politician in American history,” according to U.S. Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN-09).

Cohen used his Twitter account Sunday to put Pelosi on a moral pedestal. He did this while also bashing U.S. Republican President Donald Trump — in the midst of a potentially cataclysmic national emergency.

The congressman then revered Pelosi as “one of, if not the greatest Speakers in our history.”

Cohen did this while showing a recent video of Pelosi on television saying Trump did not do enough to protect Americans from COVID-19.

“Because the other day when he was signing the bill he said ‘Just think. Twenty days ago everything was great.’ Everything wasn’t great. We had nearly 500 cases and 17 deaths already and in that 20 days because we weren’t prepared we now have 2,000 deaths and 100,000 cases,” Pelosi said.

“So, again, we want to work in a unifying way to get the job done here. But we cannot continue to allow him to continue to make these underestimates of what is actually happening here. This is such a tragedy. We don’t even know the magnitude of it because we do not have the adequate testing.”

This is not the first time Cohen has used the outbreak of a potentially deadly virus as a reason to bash Republicans.

As reported, Cohen said years ago the Ebola virus would mutate into a Biblical-style plague that would devastate Tennessee — unless state Republicans in the Tennessee General Assembly complied fully with Obamacare and expanded Medicaid.

Among other things, as reported, Cohen has also, in the past, done or said the following:

• Warned that a Trump rally in North Carolina wason par with Nazism.

• Expressed delight over the Democrat-controlled U.S. House of Representatives no longer requiring people to say “so help me God” under oath.

• At the time of the Notre Dame Cathedral fire in France last year, Cohen used the occasion to say Trump is “torching the entire structure of government.”

• Said the Founding Fathers created the nation’s Electoral College as a way to hurt black people.

• Pushed for a formal study on slavery reparations.

Co-sponsored the Green New Deal

Celebrated people on welfare not having to work for their benefits

Compared U.S. Republican Sen. Marsha Blackburn to the mentally-challenged Waterboy character

Spent $200,000 of taxpayer money on a study to determine whether stress makes kids fat.

• Lost his temper at a news conference in Memphis in 2013 when Tennessee Watchdog asked former U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius what she would say to people whose health insurance costs doubled or tripled due to Obamacare.

• Said Tea Party supporters are no different than arsonists and compared Republicans to Nazi propagandist Joseph Goebbels for opposing Obamacare.

• Said Blackburn should jump off the Harahan Bridge in Memphis.

    Nancy & all her cronies should be arrested for treason !! She is a menus to our society, & should be labled as a terrorist to the United States!!

    I guess one stupid person can praise another stupid person is the only way you can explain pelosi and cohen .. They both are idiots. For Pelosi to think our President is a sooth-sayer is beyond me. He can’t start something until know what is happening. Then she would complain that he started something before he knew what was happening. Get her out of the House as she is not a cooperative worker with the President but only a complainer.

    Oh,Steve Cohen. This man is living proof that in parts of our nation one can be insane yet win election again and again. Pathetic!

  5. Traditional Thinker

    Does Cohen’s ignorance have a bottom? Apparently he lives in bizzaro world if he truly believes Pelosi is the greatest female politician ever. If his statement is factual, then we would have to believe that women are too stupid to be politicians. Or we could go with the evidence that Cohen never really surpassed a kindergarten mentality.

    1. William Finch

      Amen! I think we can sum it up that Chicken Steve is an IDIOT!

  6. David Longfellow

    If by calling Nancy Pelosi “One of the Greatest Politicians in American History” Steve Cohen means “One of the worst human beings in American History” he has exactly nailed it.
