Democrats Have MASSIVE MELTDOWN After House Speaker Election

(ConcernedPatriot.com) – Following the unanimous election of House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA) to lead the House of Representatives by the Republican majority—the first unanimous election by his conference since 2011—Democrats went into complete meltdown.

Despite expressing congratulations in a formal White House statement, Punch Bowl News founder Jake Sherman said in an email to X that President Joe Biden’s 2024 campaign vehemently denounced Johnson’s election.

“MAGA Mike Johnson’s ascension to the speakership cements the extreme MAGA takeover of the House Republican Conference,” Ammar Moussa, a spokesman for the Biden campaign, said in a statement.

This contrasted with Biden’s and first wife Jill Biden’s “congratulations” to Johnson, as well as their pledge to endeavor to work “in good faith.”

Congress Democrats, led by Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), voiced their profound dissatisfaction with Johnson taking the Speaker’s gavel on the first ballot, following three weeks of turmoil following Speaker Emeritus Kevin McCarthy’s (R-CA) removal.

Representative Katie Porter (D-CA) called Johnson an “insurrectionist.”

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), in a similar vein, called Johnson a “MAGA Extremist” when he was elected and stated that among his “achievements” were voting “against LGBTQ+ rights” and pursuing a “ban on abortion.”

Before the vote, when Johnson’s chances appeared to be outstanding, several well-known Democrats, such as Reps. Adam Schiff (R-CA), who is challenging Porter for the late Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s (D-CA) old seat, and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), took to X to express their disappointment.

Voters were discouraged by Schiff from researching the new Speaker on their own and using Google.

“Let me make it simple: Johnson is a hard-right, pro-Trump, leading election denier in the House,” he wrote. “Sadly, this is what passes for Speaker material in the Republican conference.’

Ocasio-Cortez wrote, “Introducing radical GOP Speaker nominee Mike Johnson.” “He played a major role in designing the January 6th plan to rig the US election.”

If Democrats are losing their mind about the newly elected Speaker of the House, it’s probably a good thing.
