Savage is the only word worthy to describe Representative Crenshaw’s verbal takedown of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s political hijinks. Crenshaw begins his argument by calling out Pelosi’s change of mind on a Covid stimulus bill. What changed? In her words, the president.
While Pelosi blamed Trump for the deaths of 200,000+ Americans, she blatantly refused to cooperate with Republicans to fund a stimulus bill to help those who had lost their jobs due to the pandemic. Worse, she acknowledged the need for the bill’s approval without acting.
This was no accident. Pelosi intentionally withheld help from American citizens because of her hatred of the president.
In Crenshaw’s words, Pelosi “held Americans hostage for political gain.” This includes foolish lockdowns and politically-charged restrictions rather than working to stop the pandemic.
Pelosi continued to proclaim, “Nothing was better than something.” In response, Crenshaw highlighted the unconstitutional lockdowns in her own state of California, imposing extreme costs on citizens and American businesses. Her actions have destroyed the personal lives, education, and numerous businesses across the state.
Despite pleas for safety and to stop the spread, Pelosi couldn’t stop herself from ordering up an appointment at a hair salon during lockdown. California Governor Newsom likewise enjoyed a swanky luncheon while quarantining his own people.
Crenshaw’s hardcore speech says it all—it’s time for Pelosi to pay for her heartlessness and go. At the very least Democrats in the House should not reelect her to the Speaker position for this unforgivable action.
