When Antifa/BLM groups burned down cities and looted small businesses nationwide, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi did nothing to stop it. When the mob arrived at her desk, she decided to portray the victim role and give “60 Minutes” a tour of the damage rioters did to her U.S Capitol building office.
She walked with CBS’s Lesley Stahl, showing her a door that was broken and a smashed mirror. She also played an audio recording of the mob banging on the Capitol conference room door while workers hid under tables. They were yelling in search of Speaker Pelosi.
The House Speaker sat down with Stahl to talk about working for “the most dangerous President” of our time and the violence he incited at the Capitol building. She didn’t acknowledge her party’s support of last year’s riots that carried throughout the summer.
Halfway through the interview, Stahl turned the conversation to talk about the strong desire for ‘compromise’ that had been promised by the Democrats. She said that since the Democrats lost so many House Seats anyway, they need to start finding responsibility for common ground. Stahl argued that Pelosi was not known as a person who compromises in the world of politics.
“No, I am. I’ll compromise. We wanna get the job done. I’m not– I’m– mischaracterized by the Republicans that way. But that’s a tactic that they use. But we know we want results for the American people,” Pelosi lashed back. Sure she does.
Stahl then referred to the coronavirus relief aid package that was held up for eight months. Pelosi argued that the Democrat Party held up the bill “out of respect” for heroes, state and local health care workers, police and fire, first responders, etc.
Stahl then pointed out that one member of her caucus even said they look like obstructionists and it was a mistake.
“I don’t remember anybody saying that and they may have. But it isn’t– it wasn’t a mistake. And I would not, and nobody expects me to, to support something that solidifies injustice in our country,” Pelosi argued.
Republican leaders had spent months trying to deliver financial relief to struggling American families, while Speaker Pelosi slipped into her role of ruthlessly blocking relief until after the election as a political tactic.
The interview then turned to talking about baseless Russian hoax claims linked to the President and how Congress would try to invoke the 25th Amendment and impeach him this month. As a conservative we need to say in tune with what has and will be happening.
Instead of using her time on screen to talk about the important issues regarding an incoming President and administration, Speaker Pelosi just defended her role in blocking coronavirus relief to working families and victimized herself in a vandalized office. More evidence that the House Speaker is not living in the reality in any sort of working-class reality- just the high and elite who bribe each other on the daily.
