Rep. Taylor Greene shared plane ride to Florida with Pelosi, suggests she’s ‘house hunting’ for retirement

When Republicans win back majority control of the House in 2022, a widely agreed upon prediction by pundits, aside from putting an immediate end to the radical Democratic agenda, perhaps the best news will be the end of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) reign.

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, one of Pelosi’s fiercest Republican critics, recently tweeted about her experience on a plane flight to Florida on which Pelosi was a passenger, suggesting that Pelosi is “house hunting” in the Republican-led state. 

In other words, in theory, it could mean that Pelosi has already conceded that her party will suffer massive defeats next year across the country and is already preparing for her departure from the lower chamber.

“Nancy Pelosi went house hunting last week in south Florida. She was actually on my plane. She wants to retire in Florida to enjoy low taxes, mask free hair salons, and Republican freedom policies, while literally destroying all these good things for the American people,” the Georgia GOP lawmaker wrote.

Pelosi calling it quits?

While it’s not uncommon for members of a party that stands to lose in a midterm election to retire or otherwise announce they won’t be seeking reelection, Pelosi seems to be giving off similar signals in the early stages of the lead-up to the 2022 campaign season.

Aside from Taylor Greene’s assessment of Pelosi’s house-hunting activities, ironically in a now deeply red state where residents enjoy the most freedom of virtually any other state, there have been other hints that Pelosi is on her way out.

“Hearing Pelosi is telling people she is not running for re-election tonight. Doesn’t want to be tied to 2022,” tweeted high-profile conservative activist Jack Posobiec earlier this month.

A report from The Atlantic last month went as far as to suggest that the Democratic Party has already lined up her replacement, in the exceedingly rare instance that Dems manage to hold on to a majority.

“Pretty much every Democrat in Congress and beyond is confident that Representative Hakeem Jeffries of New York will be the next speaker of the House if Democrats manage to hold on to their majority next year,” the report noted.

The Trump factor

Given last week’s political bloodbath suffered by the Democratic Party in elections across the country, many believe the final nail in the party’s coffin will be a long list of heavy-hitting endorsements of GOP candidates issued by former President Donald Trump.

According to Fox News, during an interview over the weekend, Trump confirmed that he will be “very active” in supporting Republicans in the 2022 midterms, and added that he’ll focus on targeting Dems and some anti-Trump Republicans.

“I’ll not only be supportive,” Trump said. “I’ll be very non-supportive of some people. So, you’ll see that there, and you’ll see that in other states too.”
