Speaker Nancy Pelosi has already made her way into the George Floyd protests outside the White House (while surrounded by a rather large entourage), but she also decided to join other members of Congress in kneeling and staying silent for 8 minutes and 46 seconds. It looked like the D.C. protesters did practice social distancing, but Pelosi’s face mask was askew when she (eventually) got up — you can see a couple of aides rush in to help the 80-year-old Speaker of the House stand up.
Man Pelosi can't get up. Did anyone else hear a cough?? pic.twitter.com/TKKrr8iQbT

Pelosi kneels for somber moment of silence to honor George Floyd.
Here is what happens immediately after:
– Pelosi can’t get up
– Pelosi is stuck kneeling
– Pelosi calls for an aide to help
– Pelosi cracks joke about her heels
– Pelosi giggles

Yikes. She is fairly older correct?
— Tif 🕆 💕🙏🏼 (@simplyorganicT) June 8, 2020
Older than just about anyone, yes.
Well, she is like 94 years old so I'll cut her some slack.

She's like 90 and drunk. Got to give her some cred for trying though.

Such a sad group of people but i have to give them credit, they never shy down from a photo op.

She is an old lady. Not many at her age can do that. She needs to retire and spend time with her grandkids

Did she have to take roids to have the strength to tear up Trump's SOTU speech?

That was way too hard for way too many of them.

Watch her cough without her mask on. In case anyone was wondering if her mask was just for virtue signaling purposes.

That scene is repeated in her bathroom, several mornings every week.

Someone overdub the voice of the life alert lady saying I've fallen and I can't get up.

She should get used to kneeling because they’ll be demanding now.

Just what we were thinking. Can’t wait until President Joe Biden celebrates his 80th birthday in the Oval Office.
