Sharp-eyed C-SPAN viewers noticed Nancy Pelosi’s garish choice of shutdown couture: A designer Hermes scarf. The prestigious French accessories will cost you at least $410, much more for special-edition items or larger-sizes.

Pelosi loves her some Hermes.

And again, here.

And who can forget this Hermes scarf-turned-hijab.

  • kawaie

    Freddie from Scooby Doo?!?! sorry im in my 20s hhaa

    • tops116 ✓Quipper

      Please. Freddy was somewhat competent. Nancy barely qualifies as Scrappy-Doo.

  • Erik

    Why are you penalizing success?

    • mike r

      Like she gives a crap about head start

    • Steve Bunten

      You mean the success that she and her husband have gotten from government contracts? Must be nice having that kind of connection.

      • Firm Believer

        Yup it’s not who you know, it’s who you blo***

    • trixiewoobeans

      On the taxpayer’s backs?

    • Michelle ✓classified

      I think you miss the point. No wait…in fact, I know you miss the point.

      • Jerry Gay

        GOOD ONE!

    • MovingToNevada

      Success? Marrying a rich guy is success now?

      • Jimbo

        Don’t know who she married, but her parents were venture capital bankers. They have more money than God. As a child, little Nancy was chauffeured to her private school in a Rolls Royce limo. She could wipe her ass with $400 scarves and never miss the dough. She also has money hidden all over the world so she doesn’t have to pay those nasty old taxes.

    • digitalPimple

      Yeah her success with insider trading that is. That women would be picking flees in the real world.

    • Guest

      cuz she is a piece of shit trying to pretend she is one of the regular folks while wearing a scarf worth thousands of dollars..

    • Not Anonymous

      cuz she is a piece of shittt trying to pretend she is one of the regular folks while wearing a scarf worth thousands of dollars..

      • AmericanMom

        It would accessorize better if it were stuffed in her big lying yapping mouth.

        • Jeanninne Bassinger

          Can we make that scarf a little bit ‘tighter’? 😉

          • Vitiosum

            If not tighter, at least she could wear it right the right way and cover her gawd awful botoxed face! 😉

          • bungopony

            You read my mind!

          • AmericanMom

            That’s the thing, we don’t want to cause her pain at all, but she and her husband seem to like causing pain for us in any way possible (why else inflict Obamacare with death panels and complete invasion of our privacy upon us or force our nation’s children to eat gruel)?

        • Iron Tub

          I do agree, although “mouth” wouldn’t be my first choice

        • Spamalot

          I love you guys. You have a brain and are not afraid to use it.

          • AmericanMom

            Thanks Pamala. We’re just talking to people who have brains and aren’t Obamabots – like you!

        • Friode28

          13 knots.

          • AmericanMom

            And a big belt.

      • Sharon Foley

        Well that just proves how crazy she really is who would pay thousands of dollars for a scarf?

    • $22639970

      What success would that be, Erik? Her success in ripping off her constituents?

    • AFMomXs2

      Success ?? Insider trading is success?? Have you researched her net worth prior to running for office ?

    • Dan Thorpe

      That’s what the democrats have proposed to do for the last 5 years. Remember the speech by Obama? What success are you talking about? What was the last job Nancy Pelosi held? Last I checked congress gets wealthy off my tax dollars.

    • Jeanninne Bassinger

      Why don’t you ask Obama that? During the 2012 debates and the campaign, they ridiculed Mitt for his success…..I bet you had something to say back then didn’t you??

      • Vitiosum

        Thank you for bringing that up! I don’t think anyone here has a problem with someone having success in their lives. People have a problem with our elected employees (govt crowd) trying everything in their power to keep the American people to succeed. I really don’t care what scarf Pelosi wears because it does nothing for her, but her attitude and platitudes I do care about because like almost all other govt shills, she lies with a straight face to the people, just like our current President (and many others prior) and way too many people believe the lies. Its very sad.

        • Cheryl Clinton

          AMEN!!!!

        • Spamalot

          I believe what they are pointing out is the irony of her saying that we all (ME – I AM ON NO PAY SHUT DOWN) have to suffer because of their inability to get along, while wearing a really expensive bit of clothing that most us who will suffer because of them, cannot afford. I’m sorry I can’t draw a picture and make it more clear to you.

          • Vitiosum

            Believe me, I do understand what is being pointed out and I know there are many that suffer at the ineptitude of govt not getting along.

      • Firm Believer

        You go girl……………!

    • Keith

      That is very conservative of you. We ask that all of the time when dems raise taxes and gas prices are continually over $3 a gallon. Welcome to the club; glad to have you aboard.

    • Cappy Paxton

      success on the backs of her constituents … her husband has done quit well because of Nancy girl, very well indeed. She lives under totally different laws than the citizenry. Insider trading is not punished when a politician does it. It may be frowned upon, but they don’t become cellmates with Martha Stewart.

    • RedSoloCup

      San Fran Nan is a success… at being a sorry excuse of a human being.

    • tops116 ✓Quipper

      Where were you when Obama demonized Romney?

    • Chevypowered

      Because she penalizes other people’s success while being successful.

      Hypocrite much?

    • SWohio

      There’s a right way and a wrong way. The wrong way is Michelle Obama ‘volunteering’ at a soup kitchen wearing $600 tennis shoes.

      One pair of those shoes would keep that soup kitchen in food for a year.

    • dboz555

      Were not penalizing success. She is an elected official who
      cannot balance the Governments budget, but can spend money on a very expensive
      scarf while we have people (a lot of people) in this country going without food
      and shelter.

      She just put a bunch of people on a defunded unemployment
      line that is not success that is failure.

    • Duke Williams

      because she is stealing our money, spending it……..and wearing high fashion items…throwing it in our faces……while she claims to be a fiscal conservative……..all lies!!!!!

  • trixiewoobeans

    Well, you don’t expect Fancy Nancy Pelosi to wear RETAIL, do you?

    • Not Anonymous

      No she should be wearing shackles.

      • trixiewoobeans

        DESIGNER shackles?

    • IBXNJ

      Three words Nancy Pelosi never heard in her life: “Attention K Mart shoppers”

      • IBXNJ

        The other three:”Welcome to Walmart”.

  • Cozy Powell III

    She oughtta cover that face with the scarf.

  • rich__b

    Wow, talk about being tone deaf on the real crisis Nancy……….

    We cannot afford politicians like you anymore!

  • Michelle ✓classified

    That person who asked if she has a matching bag…I say she IS the matching bag.

    • MovingToNevada

      I think you mean hag.

      • Michelle ✓classified

        She’s that too, but I meant bag. “Old bag” is an insult from the way back.

    • $22639970

      Best line of the day, Michelle!

      • Michelle ✓classified

        It was waiting there just begging to be pointed out, I just got it first. :-)

    • AFMomXs2

      I wonder if she has a matching broom ??

    • Shi

      Bazinga…Michelle..You win the prize. Made me smile today.

    • CatHerder ✓fire! ✓fire!

      …and she needs to be sacked.

      • Michelle ✓classified

        I see what you did there.

    • BlueGood

      Pelosi actually wears a Herpes Scarf???…I didn’t know they existed….ewwwwwwwww….(snort)….

    • bungopony

      What handgunnar said!

  • Christine Germinario Gucker

    It’s Hermes or the highway according to the witch! And I used to think Hermes had class!

  • Herman LaClair

    stay classy, right?

    • tops116 ✓Quipper

      Yeah, learn from Obama’s example: just call your opponents terrorists and hostage-takers.

  • MovingToNevada

    She’s probably carrying a $70K Berkin bag. Please, people…get your designer info straight!

    • trixiewoobeans

      I can’t! I’m just a no account peon! That scarf could buy me a much-needed decent used car, that’s all I know!

      • trixiewoobeans

        Hang on, it would take a couple of scarves. My apologies Nancy. Btw, could you “loan” me a couple of scarves? I’m SURE you have a square to spare!

        • arttie

  • lisanemo

    I am thinking this is one of those Marie Antoinette type deals. Oh, the people are starving, well, let them eat cake. Nom nom nom, finger lick.

    • Serena Champ Aneres

      The cake better be laced with high fructose corn syrup and GMOs, though =)

    • Netmilsmom

      Marie Antoinette actually fed the poor and never said anything about cake. She was smeared by the French Mobs and used as a symbol.
      I get your point but Nancy is NO Marie.

      • IBXNJ

        Think more like Imelda Marcos…..

  • worldscam

    As long as she’s killin’ in a Hermes scarf- she may as well use it to Choke Obama!

  • Liliana Rawks

    $410 scarf. My God, woman, no matter what you wear you are ridden hard and put away wet

  • stuckinIL4now

    What is she hiding under that scarf–another set of botox injections or something even more disturbing?

    • trixiewoobeans

      Just her. That’s disturbing enough.

    • TocksNedlog

      Turkey neck.

    • SPCAndyJ

      Redundant memory port…

  • Maxx

    It isn’t any less hypocritical when Michelle Obama is chastising parents on what they feed their kids at the same time she’s…

        Oh my, too early in the morning to watch the queen shoveling it in like there’s no tomorrow. She is such a hypocrite.

        • bluewaternavy

          Same here-I just lost my appetite.

        • Michelle ✓classified

          I warn you to never google: Obama eating junk food
          I was fricken amazed at how many pictures exist of the Obama’s shoving food in their mouths.

      • tops116 ✓Quipper

        Look at that kid sitting next to her. She looks really upset, doesn’t she?

  • Axelgreaser

    NOBODY MORE FASHIONABLE THAN NANCY…OTHER THAN PERHAPS ANNA WINTOUR’S BET, Mrs. Assad. Pelosi is a vulgarian. Period.

    • trixiewoobeans

      Vulgarian…I like that…fits her, and the rest, PERFECTLY!

    • Vitiosum

      I must borrow the word vulgarian, it is perfect for so many situations.

    • arttie

      A 1%er vulgarian to boot.

  • TocksNedlog

    She’s a woman of the little people.

  • no_more_deceit

    She bought it with money she saved by having non-union grape pickers at her wineries orchards.

    • GW WattsTx

      she probably has a hermes berka in her closet ready to go

    • Vitiosum

      I read that as weineries and had a terrible visual. Then I put my glasses on. Whew!

    • trixiewoobeans

      And saving a grape crop during a drought by diverting (stealing) much-needed water from area farmers to use on her grapes.

      • no_more_deceit

        That shortage of water is pretty much manufactured in the name of saving some smelt not big enough to use for bait fishing for sardines, wouldn’t surprise me is Pelosi has something to do with that stupid smelt being protected.

  • Morgan

    That scarf is beautiful. Why is this even worth acknowledging with an article?! #Priorities

  • hooligansailor

    That scarf looks like it should be TIGHTER. Things are going to get tight for the rest of us…None of the skunks in public office should get a paycheck or time off until this shutdown is dealt with.

  • audieho

    And just think…there are tens of thousands of people dumb enough to keep voting for her. SMDH.

    • Jeanninne Bassinger

      Rush calls them ‘low-information voters’, I call them ‘no-information voters’. They don’t like to see or hear any information……

  • EDUCATEDPATRIOT

    It would look better if it covered her face.

  • chrissy

    So that is what a Hermes scarf looks like. So who is Hermes?

    • wwbdinct

      As the saying goes, if you have to ask – you can’t afford it! The price of some of their handbags could feed starving children for a full year. Pelosi is the poster child for liberal hypocrisy.

  • Lesli Wheeler

    I wish we didn’t have to keep seeing pictures of her. It makes me want to vomit when I see her. And, the lady is losing it, and I mean that sincerely. When she made the comment about needing to pass Obamacare to see what’s in it, EVERYONE should have seen that senility it kicking in. She really needs to go…for the sake of the country as well as her own.

  • bbroome62

    Who cares how much it costs. Just cover that dang turkey neck.

  • wwbdinct

    Maybe she should she invest in a better plastic surgeon rather than waste her money on Hermes.

  • Kimberly Stanley

    I thought it was Hades scarf. Sorry, missed read that one.

  • Robert A. Murray

    She has to preserve the dignity of the work they do ??? by preserving the pay increases that allow her to buy the Hermes scarf!

  • heynorm48

    Actually, she did dress down for the occasion. At least she didn’t wear her $25,000 strand of Tahitian and golden pearls. 😉

  • reshas1

    Anywhere from $410 on up..

  • Suzyqpie

    The scarf perfectly symbolizes what is wrong in WDC. WDC bureaucrats are so wealthy that they are immune to the consequences of the decisions that they make.

  • Lemrob

    She is still uckin fugly

  • Still Determined

    And the male politician’s suits cost how much? puh-leaze people, tell me you have more serious things to get upset about than this.

    • Dan Thorpe

      I would never pay that much for a suit either but at least its a suit and not a $400+ scarf.

    • happyscrapper

      A suit is a necessary outfit and they ALL cost a lot of money. But to pay that for a lousy scarf is just disgusting. She is entitled to spend her money any way she wants. But it is the dems who are always criticizing the “fat cats” and the rich. Look how they treated the Romneys. Nan’s hypocrisy is quite transparent!! And that is the point of this particular thread on Michelle’s Twitchy.com site. Believe me when I tell you that yes, we have plenty more serious things to get upset about. But this is a side issue that exposes Nan for the elite snob we all know she is.

  • Piperabby123

  • mysty Blue

    She’s wearing a hermes scarf? The price of that scarf would feed a family of four for THREE WEEKS! That witch has her nerve to flaunt her wealth when SHE AND THE REST OF THE DEMOCRATS ARE THROWING TEMPER TANTRAMS, PUTTING PEOPLE OUT OF WORK AND MAKING LAWS THAT THEY DONT HAVE TO FOLLOW. I buy my accessorys at target or thrift stores and I have to save my pennies for those! This pompous witch MUST GO! SHE MIGHT AS WELL HAVE SAID “LET THEM EAT CAKE”.

    Maybe is she pulled it over her nose and mouth then she would look more like the robber she is, stealing our nation’s prosperity and our children’s future.

    Liberal guilt is so dishonest. If there is an original thought running through that head it would be related to this. Just listen to her speak…on any subject…and you will understand that she has no business being a representative of the people. But this is America. Anything is possible here and she is the proof.
