Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) went on a tear during an interview on CNN against Americans who still have questions concerning the 2020 presidential election and called on both Democrats and Republicans to ignore former President Trump.
She is not likely to have her wish granted as it is apparent to many that Trump is as popular as ever across the nation. Highlighting that fact was a MAGA boat parade in Florida on Memorial Day where Trump supporters turned out en masse. Boats flew banners showing their support for the former president that proclaimed “Trump Won,” “Trump Is My President,” and “Trump 2024.” Other banners declared: “Team Deplorables: Save America,” and “This Area Is a Liberal-Free Zone.”
Jackson Lee, however, delusionally pushed for everyone just to ignore Trump: “It’s a self-inflicted wound,” she claimed. “There was no diminishing of trust. There was a great deal of excitement in 2020. When the vote was over, the vote was a peaceful vote in November 2020, and Americans were willing to accept that Joe Biden and Kamala Harris had been elected.”
“President Trump knows that he created this lie, and he continued the narrative, and he continued to inflict wounds, but they became bricks, little sticks in the body of the democratic process. And so he has gone across America from Arizona to New Hampshire to Georgia and beyond and now to Texas with this legislation to continue to inflict this wound on the American body politic. He knows his own committee that was established to find fraud had to disintegrate if you will because there was nothing there. We say a nothing burger,” she asserted.

“I believe that Americans are good people,” Jackson Lee went on. “They love their Constitution. They believe in equality. They believe in the Bill of Rights. And if America had been left to her own devices, we would have gone on with Republicans and Democrats accepting this presidency, looking to 2024, if we didn’t like the results of 2020, and working for our candidate at that time. So I believe all we need to do as leaders, including Republicans, is to voice our support for the Constitution, to stop this continuing, inflicting of the wound to ignore Donald Trump, who is no longer the president of the United States, and restore the faith in the Constitution, which has never been diminished, except, for example, on January 6 when it was attempted to be diminished, and it was a terrorizing moment.”
“But we stood ourselves out. I was actually in the chair on that night in the speaker’s chair on that night around 4:00 in the morning when we gaveled down on January 7 that we had counted those votes,” she intoned. “So it’s a matter of leadership speaking to the American people. It’s untrue what is being said. There is trust. We have elections, don’t we, and people trust those results.”
Not so much evidently after the last election. But there is still apparently trust in Trump, much to Jackson Lee’s chagrin.

Twitter sounded off over the Congresswoman’s proclamation:
Ladies- it is the elections itself that we don’t trust – first have a national identity card for every citizen – identity who are illegals , send out the illegals , connect the identity card to voter lists of each area. Then use voter machines like it is done in India

What the hell have you Democrats been doing? Enriching China, Iran and Russia. While making Americans pay for illegals.
We won’t be forgetting THAT anytime soon. Count on it!
