Pelosi Draws Up ‘Somber’ Look for Impeachment Debate, Wearing Funeral Attire

This is a far cry from the celebratory sentiment that many Democrats have expressed on Wednesday.

The Democrats have had to put extra effort into looking morose in recent weeks, as many of their more radical Congresspersons have long been reveling at the prospect of impeaching Donald Trump.

As Trump himself has stated on several occasions, the hope to remove him from office has been around from the very beginning of his political career.  For some of the freshmen congressional class of 2018, this notion has been around from the start of their careers as well – as Democratic freshman Rashida Tlaib so distinctly demonstrated during her swearing in ceremony, in which she exclaimed with a grin that she would “impeach the motherf***er”.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has tried her hardest to rein in this sentiment, often reminding the Democratic Party that this should be a “somber” and “prayerful” endeavor.

Today, Pelosi used her wardrobe to double down on that notion.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and several other female House Democrats are wearing black attire in an effort to show Wednesday’s scheduled impeachment vote is a “somber day.”

CNN Chief Political Correspondent Dana Bash tweeted that Pelosi conveyed to her that she “feels sad” over today’s vote as she walked into the House chamber while House Democrats debate impeachment.

“As she walked into the house chamber @SpeakerPelosi told me she ‘feels sad,’” wrote Bash, before adding in a subsequent tweet: “@SpeakerPelosi is wearing black. One of her colleagues told me several of the female Democrats did that intentionally to signal it is a somber day.”

The House is expected to vote to impeach Donald Trump on Wednesday afternoon, setting up a Senate trial in which Trump will be either be acquitted, or the articles of impeachment will be dismissed wholesale by the Republican majority.
