Pelosi: Let Them Eat Cake. I Bailed on Furloughed Workers To Vacation in Hawaii – So What?

Elder Patriot – Nancy Pelosi would’ve been run out of Washington long ago had she not been propped up by the Marxist propaganda media.  She has neither the smarts nor the backbone that Donald Trump leans on to stand strong.

Making matters worse is her growing incoherence that makes the propaganda media’s job nearly impossible.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer ran interference for the incoming Speaker until Madame Pelosi was seated.  Schumer held his minority coalition together thereby preventing the president’s demand for border wall funding from getting the 60 votes necessary to advance for a floor vote.

Now Pelosi is large and in charge and that means she is forced to answer questions she’d rather not have to.  Like why she was collecting her salary and vacationing at one of the most exclusive (as in expensive) resorts in Hawaii while President Trump cancelled his Christmas plans and chose to remain at the White House prepared to make a deal.

Pelosi appeared on the Today Show where host Savannah Guthrie interviewed her:

Guthrie:  “The president took a swipe, I think, as recently as today, saying that you went on vacation to Hawaii during the shutdown. Now, you had said before the shutdown that he was being quite cavalier and maybe the shutdown will give him more time to golf but, in the end, it was you that took a holiday.”

Pelosi (visibly angered):  “I didn’t take a holiday.  I observed the Christmas holiday for a few days and I cut in half the time I would have had with my family.”

Guthrie:  “Was that a cheap shot?”

Pelosi:  “It’s not important. It’s totally unimportant, but the fact is we all stood ready and told our members we’ll have 24 hours’ notice for all of us to be where we need to be. And the president may not know this, but Hawaii is part of the United States of America. Maybe he doesn’t realize that. I don’t know where the president observed the religious holiday of Christmas. Do you?”

Oh dear.  Whatever would a fair-minded press make of Madame P’s hypocrisy.

How many times has the media attacked Donald Trump for his alleged hypocrisy in defending the Christian faith?  All while Trump has been appointed pro-life justices to the Supreme Court.

On the other hand, Pelosi who claims she’s a Catholic, has openly defied Catholic doctrine by ramming through legislation that force-funds abortion using U.S. taxpayer dollars.

More than five years ago, Cardinal Raymond Leo Burke said, that the then-House Minority Leader had no right to be granted Communion.  Cardinal Burke was the leading Cardinal of the highest Vatican court at that time.

Cardinal Burke said that Mrs. Pelosi had violated. Canon 915 states that Catholics who are stubbornly contrary “in manifest grave sin are not to be admitted to Holy Communion.”

The Cardinal continued:

“Certainly this is a case when Canon 915 must be applied.  This is a person who obstinately, after repeated admonitions, persists in a grave sin — cooperating with the crime of procured abortion — and still professes to be a devout Catholic.”

And as for Madame P’s snide comment about President Trump not realizing that Hawaii is part of the United States, so too is Mar a Lago where the president has a working office with communications similar to those in Washington.  

Had he chosen to keep his original plan for Christmas American would’ve been well served even though the propaganda media would’ve lambasted him for sneaking in a round of golf.

Oh, one more thing.  While Trump stayed in Washington working for free he moved the America First agenda forward on a number of fronts.
