This is absolute madness. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is now claiming that Republicans are responsible for George Floyd’s murder because they won’t randomly cave to her demands.
According to a bombshell report by AOL News, Pelosi told reporters that Republicans are “trying to get away with murder… of George Floyd.” She made the claim because Republicans refuse to support her overreaching bill that hurts police officers around the country. And now she’s accusing Republicans of murder.
Pelosi Uses George Floyd’s Death To Attack Republicans
Pelosi said Republicans “understand that there’s a need to get something done…they admit that and have some suggestions that are worthy of consideration — but so far, they were trying to get away with murder, actually — the murder of George Floyd.”
Pelosi made the comment after GOP leaders announced that they didn’t want to support Pelosi’s new police reform bill that would make it harder for police officers to do their jobs.
She even admitted that she was angry that Republicans wouldn’t cave to her demands. When a reporter asked her how her bill was doing in Congress, she insantly got confused and started jumbling up her response:
“Well, you be the judge. Were saying, ‘No chokeholds.’ They’re saying… you know — they’re not saying, ‘No chokeholds.’ I mean, there’s a big difference.”
Needless to say, calling Republicans murderers is insane. And Republican law officials have just demanded that Pelosi issue an official apology.
The Senate Republicans demanded an apology for the comments on Twitter, writing:
“Speaker Pelosi owes Senator Scott an apology for these disgusting comments.”
So far, Pelosi has refused to issue a response.
Even Democrats Think Pelosi’s Bill Is Stupid
Although Pelosi might attack Republicans a for not randomly caving and supporting her bill, even a lot of Democrats think it’s a terrible bill as well.
Even some senate Democrats signaled Tuesday that they plan to block the bill from advancing. One of those senators being Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y..
Schumer announced that he thought the bill is “deeply, fundamentally and irrevocably flawed.”
So the fact that Pelosi would try to call Republicans murders for not supporting the bill is absolutely insane.
