Nancy Pelosi just gave up the game with a smug and arrogant flub today. She was taking a victory lap to explain why the Dems blocked the GOP’s Senate police bill while the House passed hers.
She tried to tell a heartwarming story of how she told George Floyd’s family they would only name the bill after him if it was good enough except she flubbed the name.
“I only will do that if you tell me that this legislation is worthy of George Kirby’s name,” she said. Humiliating.
From The Daily Caller:
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi called George Floyd by the wrong name Friday, just one day after House Democrats passed police reform legislation.
In a Friday press conference, Pelosi called Floyd, “George Kirby.” This comes as Pelosi worked with the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) to come up with legislation on racial profiling and police brutality as protests continue across the country over the death of Floyd and others.
The George Floyd Justice in Policing Act of 2020 was crafted by the CBC and focuses on racial profiling and police brutality. The bill passed with a vote of 236-181.
Three Republicans voted in favor of the legislation.
Senate Democrats blocked a Republican police reform bill on a procedural vote Wednesday without debating the legislation.
