The Washington Post’s Congressional Reporter Erica Werner’s tweets about the House Democrat caucus meeting is comedy gold.
I look for ways to laugh, and this Washington Post Congressional Reporter’s tweets about the House Democrat caucus meeting is definitely comedy gold. Especially because of today’s announcements about the election, and because it’s Friday, we could all use an endorphin boost.
First of all, Congressional Reporter Erica Werner’s shorthand tweets read like she’s exasperated that she has to cover this meeting at all. I feel you boo, I get exasperated at having to talk about the junk WaPo spews out on a daily basis, so we’re sympatico.
With all the pity-poor-us turmoil that happened on that call, I have no doubt it must have been torture. But hey, that’s why she gets paid the big bucks.

No doubt about that.
Then Werner tweets Pelosi’s response:
Pelosi comes back on and says she disagrees, they won the House and…
