House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s torturous seven hour rant on Wednesday droned on as she attempted to convince Congress to back amnesty for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.
During that speech, she also spoke about her 6-year-old grandson, and how he wished on his birthday that he was Hispanic. How this had anything to with DACA, none of us will ever know.
She then went on to talk about how the boy has a “very close friend named Antonio,” from Guatemala.
“This was such a proud day for me because when my grandson blew out the candles on his cake, they said, ‘Did you make a wish?'” She continued, “He said, ‘I wish I had brown skin and brown eyes like Antonio.’ So beautiful, so beautiful. The beapelosi uty is in the mix.”pelosi
Okay? Great heartwarming story. Seriously, it’s cute. What does that have to do with politics though?
“The face of the future for our country is all-American, and that has many versions,” she added.
She is praising her grandson for wanting to be someone he isn’t. How is that healthy?
Even Congress members behind her seemed exasperated and annoyed that she was just rambling on about nonsense.
Tucker Carlson reacted to the “striking” statement, asking whether Pelosi believes it’s “healthy to hate yourself for the way God made you.”
“If you want to live in a country where everyone doesn’t hate everyone else for the color of their skin, you ought not to say things like that. Democrats should stop talking like this in public,” he said.
