Nancy Pelosi Defends Accused Democrat Conyers: 'But, he's an icon...'
Who forgot to install the new talking points into Nancy Pelosi's hard drive? Democrats are all about believing women when they accuse men of being perv-boys. Though apparently not Al Franken. Or John Conyers. Or, Al Franken again. And that's not including the third and fourth Franken accusers that popped up recently.
So really, Democrats are all about believing female accusers. Unless of course those women are accusing Democrats.
Case in point. Pelosi struggling through these rather simple questions.

Chuck Todd: Conyers - in or out?
Nancy Pelosi: We are strengthened by due process. Was it one accusation or two? John Conyers is an icon in our country.
Translation: "You see Conyers may be a little grabby, but he's all about the abortion. Plus, he's a black African-American. I mean, what kind of an anti-women racist would accuse this icon of anything bad. Furthermore, hey look at that obvious distraction..."
Chuck Todd: “Do you believe John Conyers’ accusers?”
Nancy Pelosi: “I don’t know who they are. Do you? They have not really come forward."
Actually, they have come forward. And Conyers bought their silence with taxpayer money. Or at least, that's according to the notorious AltRight conspiracy website, Buzzfeed. Good luck refuting that one.
She tried to backtrack:
Zero tolerance means consequences. I have asked for an ethics investigation, and as that investigation continues,… https://t.co/sRYiyLm3rM— Nancy Pelosi (@Nancy Pelosi)1511716972.0
Clearly leftists only care about rape victims when it furthers their agenda. When Roy Moore is accused of getting intimate with high-schoolers (which, it looks like he did), he's guilty on the spot. But, when the fingers are pointing at one of Nancy's party-mates? "Okay guys, we really just need to let due process run its course."
Nancy's not entirely wrong. Due process should be the rule when accusations are being flung. The problem is leftists' inconsistency. Calls for due process for conservatives would never come from Queen Hag-a-lot's Botoxed piehole. Which makes her a ginormous hypocrite.
