Internet Hilariously Roasts Nancy Pelosi for Demanding Lower Voting Age

Nancy thought the voting age should be lowered to 16. The internet thought that was stupid.

Last week, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said in a press conference that it was “really important” for the United States to lower the voting age to 16.

When Grabien founder Tom Elliot posted the clip on Twitter, it inspired a hilarious trend of users noting the wacky things they did at age 16, effectively making the case against lowering the voting age. Here are some samplings:

“When I was 16 I pierced my own belly button with a thumbtack and was genuinely surprised when it got infected,” one Twitter user said.

“When I was 16 I poured and licked acid off my hand during a chemistry final to figure out if my last unknown solution was that or water. And I was an honors student,” said another.

“when i was 16, my friends and i bought a live lobster, put it on a leash, and walked it around the neighborhood at 2am,” said another.

That Tweet ended up being the most popular of the bunch, garnering more than 43,000 retweets and almost 250,000 likes. But the trend continued:

“When I was about 16 I drank 2 shot glasses of GASOLINE from my buddy’s lawn mower for $20 but go off,” another Twitter user said.

“When I was 16 me and my friends lit a football on fire and tried to play catch with it,” said another.

“When I was 16, my friends and I would buy mass amounts of hotdogs (specifically the red ones) and drove around populated areas to throw hotdogs at pedestrians,” another person said.

Finally, the most salient of of the “when I was 16” Tweets.

“When I was 16, I thought libertarianism was a viable political ideology,” one user said.

We’ve all been through that stage. Thankfully, once fully matured, it generally passes.

COWARD: Sen. James Lankford Grovels to Black Constituents for Opposing Electoral Fraud

Lankford is an ethnomasochist.

Since last week’s siege on the U.S. Capitol, there has been a tremendous amount of groveling from Republican cowards desperate to save face and avoid media scrutiny, but Sen. James Lankford (R-OK) has taken it to a new low.

Lankford issued a letter apologizing to his black constituents for opposing electoral fraud. He is sorry because the areas that committed the most fraud just so happened to be diverse inner-city communities. Multiculturalism means that fraud is ignored, and it is our national strength. This is the credo of the New America.

The Oklahoma senator wrote that his efforts “caused a firestorm of suspicion among many of my friends, particularly in Black communities around the state. I was completely blindsided, but I also found a blind spot.”

“What I did not realize was all of the national conversation about states like Georgia, Pennsylvania, and Michigan, was seen as casting doubt on the validity of votes coming out of predominantly Black communities like Atlanta, Philadelphia, and Detroit,” he wrote.

“After decades of fighting for voting rights, many Black friends in Oklahoma saw this as a direct attack on their right to vote, for their vote to matter, and even a belief that their votes made an election in our country illegitimate,” he added.

Lankford’s pathetic obsequious letter apologizing for fighting the vote steal shows why the Republican Party is dying, and Republican politicians are despised by their own rank-and-file party members. There is little difference between a GOP elected official and a social justice activist these days.

“I can assure you, my intent to give a voice to Oklahomans who had questions was never also an intent to diminish the voice of any Black American. I should have recognized how what I said and what I did could be interpreted by many of you,” he wrote. “I deeply regret my blindness to that perception, and for that I am sorry.”

Big League Politics has reported on how the Capitol riot forced RINOs to show their true colors and publicly express the disdain they have always held for President Trump:

Mitch McConnell is reportedly “pleased” about the possibility of Trump’s second impeachment, viewing it as an opportunity to purge Trump from the Republican Party and whatever else Conservative Inc. deems “toxic.”

In a New York Times report published Monday afternoon, Jonathan Martin and Maggie Haberman write that the outgoing Senate Majority Leader believes Trump committed “impeachable offenses.” McConnell also welcomes impeachment in order to justify dumping Trump and shedding his influence over the GOP.

“Mr. McConnell, Republican of Kentucky, has indicated that he wants to see the specific article of impeachment that the House is set to approve on Wednesday, which is expected to draw support from as many as a dozen Republicans, potentially including Representative Liz Cheney of Wyoming, the party’s No. 3 in the House,” the report reads. “But he has made clear in private discussions that he believes now is the moment to move on the weakened lame duck, whom he blames for causing Republicans to lose the Senate.”

The Republican Party can either become the Trump party moving forward or go extinct. With cowards like Lankford among the ranks, they may actually choose extinction because they’re that weak.
