What do Nancy Pelosi, Steny Hoyer, Jim Clyburn, and Xavier Becerra have in common? Other than being the veritable Fab Four of the Jackass Party, that is. But first – yes, there really was a point in time when the Democrats were known as the Jackass Party.
But I digress, the combined age of the top four Democrats on the US House of Representatives have a total sum that makes them older than the United States of America.
As reported by the Breitbart.com news portal, Nancy Pelosi again won the leadership of the Democrat minority in the House. Despite experiencing an electoral ass-whoopin’ of Biblical proportions, the California legislator famously stated, “I don’t think people want a new direction.”
Perhaps illustrating just how clueless the Democrats truly are, the total ages of the four is 287. The American republic, however, a mere 240-years-old.
To better place the combined ages of the top Dems into proper perspective, the total sum subtracted from the year 2016 takes us all the way back to 1729.
Oh, and George Washington wasn’t even born yet. That wouldn’t happen for another three years.
