Nancy Pelosi Doesn’t Know How Presidents Work

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi demonstrated her incompetence Wednesday with a tweet naming the presidents completely out of order.

Pelosi was apparently trying to make a point about Republicans and “Trickle-Down Economics,” but managed to majorly mess up the tweet when she claimed there was a “Bush 44.”

The tweet was later deleted.

“Reagan. Bush 43. Bush 44,” she wrote. “They all tried ‘Trickle-Down Economics.’ And not once did it help working families. #NotOnePenny.”


I know this can be confusing, so here it is so that Pelosi can understand:

George H.W. Bush was the 41st President of the United States. He is the elder Bush. His son, George W. Bush, was the 43rd President of the United States.

There was no “Bush 44.” The 44th President of the United States was Barack Obama, also a member of the Democratic Party.

There are some other members of the Bush family out there too, like Jeb and Billy, but we’ll save that lesson for another day.
