Inflation is at a forty-year high and gasoline prices have eclipsed the $5 per gallon mark.
But the woman who is third in line to the Presidency has trained her focus elsewhere in her characteristic “Let them eat cake” fashion.
Now Pelosi is pandering to drag queens for votes while Americans struggle to get by.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi appeared on a TV show called RuPaul’s Drag Race, home of Hollywood’s most prominent drag queen, who has made appearances in a slew of movies and TV episodes.
Pelosi, ever eager to press a political angle, made a show of support for RuPaul and other drag queens’ “freedom of expression.”
Pelosi said, “It’s my honor to be here, to say to all of you how proud we are of you. Thank you for the joy and beauty you bring to the world. Your freedom of expression of yourselves in drag is what America is all about. I say that all the time to my friends in drag.”
Pelosi’s rhetoric suggests that she wants everyone to accept the drag queens and approve of their lifestyle choices but she wasn’t especially convincing.
According to Spectator World, “In typical Pelosi style, the Speaker looked like she was gritting her teeth through the whole thing. It was clear she was almost (almost) as uncomfortable in the moment as Cockburn was watching the spectacle, a puzzling circumstance for someone who claims to have so many ‘friends in drag.’”
Getting closer to the political angle, Spectator World continues, “The queens complimented Pelosi on what Entertainment Weekly called her ‘infamous, condescending round of applause she gave Trump at the end of his 2019 speech.’ Someone named Raja said, ‘We throw the word masterclass around here all the time, but that sarcastic, shady clap you do was f—ing epic.’ Pelosi demurred and said her natural sarcastic, shady reaction was natural and ‘completely unintentional.’”
In the end, Pelosi cut to the heart of the matter and said, “The single most important thing I can say is to vote.”
And there it is.
It’s not about honor or pride or joy or any of the rest, but rather it’s simply Pelosi trolling for votes from a friendly constituency while fully Democrat-controlled Washington, D.C. has turned into a virtual dumpster fire.
While Pelosi was schmoozing with men parading around as women, everyday Americans are left to wonder if their paychecks will cover the rapidly increasing costs of food and housing thanks to Bidenflation.
We are not being governed by serious people.
The silver lining is that a strong majority knows it and is prepared to do something about it in just over four months.
