Steve Cohen Will Push For Nancy Pelosi as Next Speaker of the House

Steve Cohen

If Democrats retake the U.S. House of Representatives this fall then U.S. Rep. Steve Cohen, D-Memphis, said he’ll support Nancy Pelosi as Speaker of the House yet again.

Cohen made his remarks on MSNBC this past weekend.

While there, he also called Republican President Donald Trump “a maniac.”

No one from Cohen’s office returned The Tennessee Star’s request for comment this week.

Cohen said Pelosi is “the strongest, most experienced, and best tactician there is.”

“When you have someone to stand up to the most corrupt president, the most bullying president we have ever had and fight to create health care, fight to create jobs and fight to end the culture of corruption he has created in Washington then you want Nancy Pelosi,” Cohen said.

“She is a proven leader. She is a star. She doesn’t back up to anybody. The people who vote for Democratic candidates will want a check and balance on Donald Trump. You don’t put a rookie in the big game of the World Series or the seventh game of the NBA. You go in with the pro who has been there and delivered.”

Pelosi will never back down to Trump, Cohen went on to say.

“The fact that she’s a woman and she’s effective is why Republicans have made her an issue,” Cohen said.

If Democrats fail to retake either the U.S. House or the U.S. Senate then Cohen said it’s time for elected Democrats in both chambers to step down.

“If we don’t take back the house then the country is gone,” Cohen said.

“We have to have checks and balances against this maniac.”

Cohen, meanwhile, is no stranger to bursts of hyperbole.

Cohen in recent years has stated the following:

Cohen also seemingly lost his temper at a news conference in Memphis when Tennessee Watchdog asked former U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius what she would say to people whose health insurance costs doubled or tripled due to Obamacare. He said Tennessee Republican U.S. Senate candidate Marsha Blackburn should commit suicide. Cohen also told disgraced FBI agent Peter Strzok that he deserves a Purple Heart.

    Ignorant and ugly!

    This may be clear evidence that past cocaine use causes brain damage.

    I fear that alcohol, pornography,drugs, depravity,and all of the seven deadly sins,have deteriorated the brain of this whatchamacallit senator.

    What a dumba**!

  5. John Bumpus

    Maybe the Tennessee General Assembly should just ‘gerrymander’ Cohen out of his seat in the Congress. If anyone was ever a worthless man, it is Steve Cohen. He is an embarrassment to the good people of Tennessee. Redistricting is not far off–soon after the 2020 census and the general election that November. Tennessee could easily rid itself of this scoundrel.
