Nancy Pelosi just proved again what a third-rate politician she truly is. The nation was rocked by a tragic cop shooting.
Then we had another tragedy and at least one is dead and a young man may spend the rest of his days behind bars.
So what does Pelosi do? Tries to blame Trump? It is ludicrous unless she has seen the polls and knows the riots are hurting Biden and her chances to keep the House so she is trying to frame the debate.
She said: “But the encouragement that the president, the acquiescence if not more than that, that he gives to vigilantes coming in to make matters worse in these situations.”
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) on Wednesday accused President Donald Trump of encouraging “vigilantes” to make situations worse in cities plagued by unrest and riots such as Kenosha, Wisconsin.
“What we saw in Kenosha breaks your heart; it does pierce the soul, as was said,” Pelosi told reporters during a telephone call organized by the campaign of Democrat president nominee Joe Biden.
“But the encouragement that the president, the acquiescence if not more than that, that he gives to vigilantes coming in to make matters worse in these situations is something the president should be quelling rather than encouraging.”
Pelosi then issued praise for the family of Jacob Blake, the 29-year-old black man shot multiple times by police on Sunday.
“I do think what’s beautiful to hear, Mrs. Blake, speak as a mom,” Pelosi said of Blake’s mother, Julia Jackson.
“I don’t know if you heard her speech, but she said this isn’t what we’re about. We’re not about rioting and destroying of property.”
“We all respect peaceful demonstrations. We don’t want them to be exploited by outside groups be they vigilantes and the rest to stir it on,” the speaker added.
Earlier Wednesday, a 17-year-old was arrested in connection with the deadly shooting of two people during the third consecutive night of riots in Kenosha, sparked by Blake’s shooting.
