Nancy Pelosi Slammed By the Left?

It may be time for Pelosi to think about retirement.

Nancy Pelosi can always be counted on for the pure hyperbolic, pitch-perfect identity politics drama. This is a woman who called ending Obamacare “the end of the world” and, just last week defended the “spark of divinity” that can be found in all people, including MS-13 members (but not, presumably, unborn children).

So you would have expected her to be first in Congress’ long line to finger wag at the NFL for requiring their players to stand or remain in the locker room for the National Anthem.

So when she gave an uncharacteristically benign comment on the new policy, the far-left lashed out.

Pelosi gave her remarks during a CNN town hall event on Thursday, The Blaze reports.

“I would be more okay with it if they had consulted with the players,” Pelosi responded, “I don’t think the players agreed to this. This is the owners, and, by the way, it’s the owners who would be fined.”

“I love the national anthem,” she explained. “I’m from Baltimore. That’s where it was written during the War of 1812. So I’m very possessive of it. Sometimes people say, ‘Maybe we should change the national anthem.’ No.”

“I love the national anthem. I love the flag,” she continued (I know, I’m as shocked as you are). “And I love the First Amendment, and I’ll just leave it at that.”

Tsk, tsk, Nancy.

Eugene Scott quickly lashed out in a piece penned in The Washington Post, accusing Nancy of being a “coward” and using the incident as an example as to why Democrats fail to court the black millennial vote.

He found he was in good company on Twitter:

One commentator on the website Bossip pretty much just scathingly bashed the congresswoman.

“Do you see this broad walking that tightrope?” they wrote. “She should quit her gig with the government and go on the road with Cirque Du Soleil.”

“She can’t even fix her mouth to just say the undeniable truth, that the rule is a bunch of bullsh**t. But will without doubt put out her wrinkly hand and ask for our vote.”

“Coward,” they concluded.
