    “Take a pause” you don’t like delays? Really, I thought that was your middle name, Nancy Delay Pelosi. Did Joe Biden teach Nancy how to speak ? Why does your stimulus bill include money for marijuana growers ? What a joke, Nancy, just home and eat your ice cream.

      I disagree my friend although there are some Republicans that need to be thrown out 1 that I do not think it is Trump he’s done one hell of a lot of work for 3 years you got to give a brother some credit and if you can you need to go back to school don’t speak when you’re angry

    Wasn’t this woman trying to preach President Trump and having a pin signing and say let’s have a party and all kinds of stuff on people are dying not taking this serious letting more Americans die

  7. She communicates just about as well as Joe Biden does

      So you would see our nations sovereignty stripped as an unlimited amount of undocumented dependants flood over here for the free ride paid for by the citizens who don’t receive the same support…especially now as we can’t even take care of our own. I get the idea you are not here legally either which would makes sense based on your reply. I’m not going to bash you for your opinion as you are entitled to yours. If anything appreciated you responding to my inquiry honesty.

    • @sammhy ramirez Youre an useful idiot. GO LEARN HISTORY IDIOT!

    • @California Screaming You may not notice, but I’m proudly an officer of the US armed forces. Law requires commissioned officers must be US Citizens. I was just stating the obvious… that the speaker was primarily focused on lobby and party interest… And practically forgot to mention the american citizens. My statement, reflecting my own beliefs, was not intended to necessarily be political.

    • California Screaming | May 16, 2020 at 9:40 AM | Reply

      Charles- I am not sure if your reply was intended for me and may have been intended for that misfit Sammhy who doesn’t believe your facts are correct for some bizarre and ignorant reason. I did note your service from the pic and deeply appreciate all that you do and sacrifices made to defend and protect this Nation. It’s very rare to see anyone active actually express an opinion publically related to anything involving politics, so hats off to you. I as well and expressing my beliefs based on the timeline of events and know we will not sustain much longer at the pace democrats have set. There is something else happening and it’s not related to protecting and locking down the nation and the healthy over a virus. Thanks again for your service and wishing you and those by your side continued good health and safety.

  9. She can’t even hide her evil smile as she knowingly lies.

      I just see botox completely fake.

    • It’s time to take back the United States corporation

    • What is the lie about having compassion for your citizens, and non citizen’s…health and well being?

    • @Mike F

      Yes…it is.. I do not like wri kles. And when it happens…girls..and me…we need to have the option and resources…okay! We can not walk around ugly..and craggly..like men!

    • Or the stitches for her new(govt funded) plastic surgery hidden under that scarf. Only thing keeping her mouth moving is her evil pride and a case of polygrip.Long live speaker SKELETOR.☠☠

    Hey Nancy Pelosi, when Americans needed the money more than the corporate bailouts, why were we put on the backburner if you say its the people that are important?
    Is everything a double standard to you?

    • Fernando Silva | May 15, 2020 at 5:25 AM | Reply

      Norman that is put in their by republicans. If you look at the original bill written up by Democrats. The bank is never mentioned. That is a little game republicans play…. you want to get money out to the citizens than you need to to grease our palms. If you don’t we won’t pass your piece of legislation.

      @Norman the losing part is because of division! If we looked through the glass mirror we would see a better reflection!

      @Fernando Silva hey buddy, so you’re aware, she’s definitely not helping the economy! Especially by taking away freedoms! Are you reading these policies or just listening to what’s being said?

    • Fernando Silva | May 15, 2020 at 11:27 AM | Reply

      PatientlyWaiting 4MyKing/SouloDad well she isn’t really taking. You people can do as you wish. She is just speaking from a responsible point of view. That’s her job as a political leader and if she didn’t do so than what kind of example would she be setting. I look at people like Nancy pelosi and think of them as a distant grandmother. I am not that person that is looking for reasons not to like pelosi. To be honest I don’t see her as a person playing politics. If you look at it for what it is she is rich no matter the party. She is a life long person of service and given the kind of salary she is paid to do such job. Of course she is rich and is it her fault? I don’t think so because she has held on to her job by the people’s vote.
      You may not like this but I am glad we have someone in place like a pelosi as 3rd in charge because the first two are not very good leaders. I believe this administration is terrible compared to what the past administrations.

      PatientlyWaiting 4MyKing/SouloDad another thing. I ain’t listening to nobody. Where I live I am away from big populations. Where I live I do what I do just like any other day. I don’t believe the town I live in has not one case of the virus.
