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.

Trending: Fake-News-O-Matic

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.

Mnuchin To Request More Funds From Congress If Small Businesses Use Up $350B In Forgivable Loans

Published

Treasure Secretary Steven Mnuchin stated on Wednesday that should small businesses use up all of the $350 billion in loans to be administered by the Small Business Association to help keep them afloat during the social distancing measures being taken to contain the coronavirus. Here’s more on this from Washington Examiner: “One of the things I’ve heard is this small business program is going to be so popular that we’re going to run out of the $350 billion. If that’s the case, I can assure you that will be at the top of the list for me to go back to Congress on,” he told CNBC. The relief bill provides $350 billion to small businesses and other entities with zero-fee loans of up to $10 million to help cover payroll. These loans are available to businesses with 500 employees or less. The loans are forgivable to the extent that they are used to maintain payroll and pay other overhead. The loans are expected to be disbursed on a first-come-first-serve basis. Outside economists have said that the $350 billion allocation is much less than will be needed by small businesses looking to retain their workers. Earlier this week, Mnuchin stated that the loans included in the coronavirus relief package past last week would be available this Friday. Mnuchin spoke with Fox Business saying, “I’ve said these loans will be available starting on Friday, which will be at lightning speed. We hope later today that we’ll be releasing the documents and the instructions.” The coronavirus is continuing to wreak havoc on the United States as the death toll from the virus hits 4,000, which takes our numbers higher than those of China where the illness originated from.

Devin Nunes Says School Closures Over Coronavirus Are ‘Way Overkill’

Published

on

When it comes to discussions about safety measures taken to manage the spread of the coronavirus, there seems to be two camps. One camp doesn’t think this virus is all that big of a deal and we ought to just get back to living life as normal with no concern for the seriousness of the matter. The other camp freaks out and thinks everything under the sun must be banned and shutdown for the next few years — or so it seems — until the virus goes away. Both are extremes, and funny enough, both are extremely stupid. It seems that Rep. Devin Nunes, a Republican, falls into the first camp. Nunes recently came out and said that school closures over the virus are “way overkill.” Keep in mind, the virus has now killed 4,000 Americans, which is 700 more than the Chinese total of fatalities (if they are actually reporting their numbers accurately). Here’s more from The Washington Examiner: As they discussed former Food and Drug Administration Commissioner Scott Gottlieb’s public health plan for how to combat the virus, Ingraham claimed it would mean people “can’t go back to a normal life” for 12 months. “Yeah, that’s not going to work. … The schools were just canceled out here in California, which is way overkill,” Nunes responded. “It’s possible kids could’ve went back to school in two weeks to four weeks, but they just canceled the rest of the schools. So, look: I’m optimistic here.” “If we don’t start to get people back to work in this country over the next week to two weeks, I don’t believe we can wait until, you know, the end of April. I just don’t know of any economy that’s ever survived where you unplug the entire economy and expect things to go…
