‘Stand with Nancy’ campaign goes horribly wrong for Dems when Republicans jump in on the action

They had to see it coming.

Democrats kicking off a #StandWithNancy hashtag on Twitter Wednesday just wanted to show some support for the House minority leader, but their plan backfired when Republicans joined in.

Virginia Rep. Don Beyer thought the hashtag would be encouraging for Nancy Pelosi in light of the criticism the California congresswoman received following Democrat Jon Ossoff’s loss in Georgia’s special election on Tuesday, the fourth recent special elections loss for Democrats.

Others soon picked up on the hashtag and began to tweet their support like Hawaii Rep. Colleen Hanabusa, Washington Rep. Pramila Jayapal, and others.

But it wasn’t long before Republicans caught on and joined the movement, with some encouragement from Fox News Contributor Ryan Fournier.

The hashtag began trending as even groups like the National Republican Congressional Committee and Republican National Committee called for Americans to #StandWithNancy.

President Trump was in on the game before the hashtag even started, tweeting earlier on Thursday that he hoped the Dems didn’t ‘force her out‘ before the midterms. On Friday he reiterated the sentiment saying he would be “very disappointed” if the House Democratic leader stepped down.

“It would be a very, very sad day for Republicans if she steps down. I would be very disappointed if she did,” Trump said on “Fox & Friends,” adding that Pelosi has an “extraordinary record against her.”

Pelosi aides had reportedly even sent pre-scripted tweets to allies, according to New York Times’ Maggie Haberman.

Maybe Pelosi doesn’t need all the help,since she seems quite comfortable blowing her own horn.

Nevertheless, the hashtag persisted – and took on a life of its own on Twitter.
