In June of 2017, Rep. Nancy Pelosi described a tactic in politics she called the “wrap-up smear.” She was describing the tactic as something the GOP would use to divert attention away from real issues.
It seems she may have described a bit more than she intended.
“We call it the wrap-up smear,” Pelosi said. “You want to talk about politics, it’s a wrap-up smear.”
“It’s a tactic,” she later added.
Was Pelosi concerned the GOP would use the tactic? Or describing a political tactic liberals would eventually deploy?
