“Believe it or not, with Pelosi gone, House Democrats have even gotten more extreme and even more unhinged than they already are,” Fox News Channel Host Sean Hannity said on his show Wednesday, listing some of newly-elected House Democrat Leader Rep. Hakeem Jeffries’ (D-N.Y.) most radical comments and policies.
“So now, with (House Speaker) Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) leaving the House leadership, Democrats may have actually found someone even more radical and more extreme to lead their caucus, now picking far-left Progressive from New York, Hakeem Jeffries, to be the house minority leader,” Hannity said, noting that “Jeffries' record is filled with really extreme forms of far-left lunacy.”
In addition to pushing the debunked Russia Hoax used to smear former President Donald Trump, Jeffries “repeatedly denied that Donald Trump was a legitimately-elected president,” Hannity said:
“The leader of the Democrats in D.C. is an official election-denier. He tweeted in February 2018, ‘The more we learn about the 2016 election, the more illegitimate it becomes. America deserves to know whether we have a fake president in the oval office.’
Hannity then highlighted some of Jeffries' far-left comments and positions detailed in a list scrolling in the background:
“Jeffries has been a rubber-stamp for the Biden agenda. He downplayed the border crisis, he downplayed inflation, he blamed oil companies for high gas prices, he is all-in on the New Green Deal, and he is a climate alarmist cult member.
“He suggested that pro-life Americans were a threat to the country, and that they were a cult. He voted for all of Biden's reckless spending, and so much more.”
“Well, believe it or not, with Pelosi gone, House Democrats have even gotten more extreme and even more unhinged than they already are,” Hannity concluded.
