Rep. Hakeem Jeffries, the new Democratic leader in the House of Representatives, has repeatedly blasted Donald Trump over his 2020 election claims, calling them the “Big Lie” and saying that “we will never bend the knee to the election deniers who poison our democracy.”

The problem is, Jeffries did the very same thing as Trump in previous elections.

In 2018, Jeffries tweeted: “The more we learn about 2016 election the more ILLEGITIMATE it becomes. America deserves to know whether we have a FAKE President in the Oval Office.”

Illegitimate? Fake president? Sounds like someone is trying to incite an insurrection.

“LIE (more than any administration in the history of the Republic). CHEAT (2016 election/Russian Interference). STEAL (one or two Supreme Court seats). When will Republicans put country ahead of party?” Jeffries wrote in another post.

Apparently, faith in elections and democracy only goes one direction.

Here’s another tweet from the new House leader: “Keep pouting. History will never accept you as a legitimate President.”

And another: “Let’s be clear donald. The only person trying to steal the election is YOU. (and your buddies in the Kremlin),” he wrote.

Since the 2020 election, nearly every Republican candidate and elected official has been asked whether they believe that Joe Biden is a legitimately elected president. Will the mainstream media ask Jeffries the same about Donald Trump?

Don’t hold your breath.

  1. Before you become a politician, don’t they test you to make sure you can be a hypocrite and keep a straight face? It is sort of a job requirement.

  2. It’s mot just him it’s all democrats. We had a billion dollar investigation for 2 years, which found nothing. THAT WAS THE BIG LIE!!
    There was no investigation at all into the very suspicious 2020 election, but we are supposed to believe it’s a big lie.

  3. Careful. One can not criticize Mr. Jeffries because he is a person of color. Alejandro Mayorkas and Merrick Garland are keeping a very watchful eye on anyone that says anything negative about Hakeem.

  4. well, I am privilieged to say I am a racist…..I love being a racist for Hashem…..without G-d this is what you get a class act of evil and braggarts ….for all the crap against White People or Religiosity it is all the same and is colorless…however this man is not only one of evil and colorless imagination he should be barred set to jail and apologize for the crap he is distributing

  5. hakeem jeffries has ALWAYS been a despicable,vile,scum. for him to become dem leader of the house shows what a pitiful joke dem party has become!

  6. Not getting involved : That is quite untrue. There is no reason to declare the Democrats and their media allies of a double standard for African Americans. Note the nasty things they have said about various African Amercian Republicans (Tim Scott, Clarence Thomas, Ben Carson, etc.). The rule the media want to enforce is to ban criticism of any Democrat, not matter how idiotic, regardless of race.
