Dem to Deliver Anti-Elite SOTU Response Comes From Most Elite Family in U.S.

The Democrats made an ... interesting ... choice to deliver a pro-middle class message to voters for their State of the Union response.

In her statement announcing the Democrats’ State of the Union response next week, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said “President Trump has consistently broken his promises to the middle class.” Naturally, then, Pelosi and Democrats chose someone from a hard-scrabble, middle-class background to respond to Trump.

Nope, they chose a Kennedy.

Rep. Joe Kennedy (D-MA), a member of the elite and storied Kennedy family, will give the Democrats’ State of the Union response on Tuesday, according to Politico.

“While President Trump has consistently broken his promises to the middle class, Congressman Kennedy profoundly understands the challenges facing hard-working men and women across the country,” House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said in a statement.

Kennedy can hardly speak to “middle class” concerns on a personal level. He’s the 22nd-richest member of Congress, according to CQ Roll Call, worth a total of $18.64 million.

Of course, Democrats also showed their distance to the middle class in having Pelosi make the announcement. Pelosi’s last moment in the political spotlight came earlier this month, when she called billions of dollars in bonuses for American workers – as a result of the GOP tax bill – “crumbs.”

If Democrats think their path to prosperity in 2018 is through a Kennedy and Nancy Pelosi, they may have an ugly surprise at the ballot box in November.
