(FamilyRetirementClub.Com)- House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, the far-left Democratic lawmaker who has been one of the most vocal anti-Trump Democrats in Congress, announced her endorsement for former Vice President Joe Biden on Monday.
Pelosi announced the news in a video published on Twitter and other social media platforms, in which she can be seen forcing a smile and singing his praises.
The House Speaker calls him a “leader who is the personification of hope and courage, values, authenticity, and integrity.”

Pelosi said she is “proud” to endorse Joe Biden “because he will be an extraordinary president,” and that “he knows how to get the job done.”
The House Speaker also brought up the economic problems the United States is experiencing as a result of the Chinese coronavirus, a talking point she regularly uses as a stick to beat President Trump with. She claimed that Joe Biden, being responsible for the Recovery Act of 2009, proves he can turn things around – but the Recovery Act was a piece of legislation from 2008 designed to reduce the impact of the economic crash. Today’s economic recession is caused by a virus and requires an entirely different approach to stimulate the economy.
President Donald Trump oversaw the largest growth in employment in the United States in American history, but Pelosi didn’t mention that. Obviously.
Her endorsement comes after President Barack Obama finally bit the bullet and endorsed Joe Biden. The former president stayed out of the race entirely, refusing to endorse Biden until he was the only option left.
There’s a reason why the Democrats may not be so eager to endorse Biden, too. The former vice president is in the midst of a sexual assault scandal after former staffer Tara Reade alleged that he pinned her against a wall in a corridor, kissed her, and penetrated her with his fingers without her consent.
