California Rep. Devin Nunes shut down House Speaker Nancy Pelosi after her little stunt backfired. And it backfired because it exposed Pelosi and her attitude towards the average American worker.
Pelosi joined comedian James Corden on his late-night show last week, showing the camera more than a dozen containers of ice cream in her freezer.
“I don’t know what I would’ve done if ice cream were not invented,” Nancy Pelosy said in the interview.
The Washington Examiner reported that Nunes joined Fox & Friends Weekend and claimed that if a Republican had done the same thing as Nancy Pelosi, they would be pulled from leadership.
“If any Republican leader, if [Senate Majority Leader] Mitch McConnell or [House Minority Leader] Kevin McCarthy or any of our speakers in the past would have said — done something like Pelosi did, where she’s sitting at home in front of her refrigerator with a, you know, $24,000, you know, freezer that I don’t think too many of us have…”
“It would be a fatal flaw,” Nunes said. “We would boot McConnell or McCarthy out of leadership just like that. They would have been out four days ago, the minute that that popped up.”
He added: “When you have … 20 million people unemployed — you have people that can’t get paychecks.”
“What the hell is going on? And you know, she’s sitting in San Francisco eating gourmet ice cream? It doesn’t fly out in the real world.”
