Is Nancy Pelosi on fire today or what?
Today alone, she’s given us these gems:
- Nancy Pelosi has determined that ‘the best two words’ to describe Build Back Better are ‘it lowers cost’
- Nancy Pelosi says she has no idea where this ‘attitude of lawlessness’ in San Francisco and around the US comes from … can you help her?
- Nancy Pelosi says Americans are lucky to be in the ‘experienced and capable hands’ of ‘perfect’ President Biden
Well, here’s another real jewel for you:

Is that so, Nancy?
Translation: “This is how we make our money in Congress, and nobody comes between me and my money.”

Even libs are raising their eyebrows:
"We're a free-market economy. They should be able to participate in that." — Pelosi's rationale for why spouses of members of Congress should be able to trade individuals stocks is not very convincing pic.twitter.com/NuOw0VznVm

This is a frustratingly bad decision by Pelosi. https://t.co/DycxclJmii

Gotta respect Nancy Pelosi for wanting members of Congress to be able to trade stock. Most people would've made their fortunes and then pulled the ladder up behind them, but Pelosi is generous enough to allow other members of Congress to game the system as well. Much respect! https://t.co/Ljyk0Xzfs5

They're there to represent the financial interests of their donors, and to pursue their own direct financial interests too. Democracy has nothing to do with it. https://t.co/xM3Q3JUyVX

Disgusting. You are supposed to be a public servant not a market profiteer using your inside knowledge to sell out the nation. https://t.co/e2LP0lik9J

Tough break, Nancy.

It’s nice when everyone can join together in agreement about something.
