She tried to gain sympathy from the crowd.
But her display was anything but convincing.
Now, Nancy Pelosi did one thing that has voters scratching their heads.
If these past few weeks have shown voters anything, it is that Nancy Pelosi cannot stay out of the spotlight – but for all the wrong reasons.
First was her politically disastrous and hypocritical haircut that had voters questioning whether or not she believed what she said about the dangers of COVID-19.
Next was her strangely mystic and scientifically inaccurate discussion of the wildfires raging across the West Coast.
Now, she has done it again with another head-scratching, confusing, and downright embarrassing speech.
Recently, she gave an interview on Morning Joe for MSNBC.
She started off by talking about climate change and the California wildfires in particular.
There was nothing special about the way she gave her speech, she simply relayed the information as normal.
Then, in the middle of discussing climate change, she abruptly switched gears to discussing COVID-19.
With no prompting or warning, she suddenly became extremely dramatic and choked up.
Brandon Morse of RedState blog describes the change as follows:
“That’s when Pelosi, like a bad actor in a school play, suddenly shifts emotional tones. There’s no gradual lead up to the change. Her voice doesn’t crack as she tries to hold back her sorrow. Pelosi suddenly dips her head, places her hands on her chest, and begins to choke through her words.”
No warning, no previous indication of emotion, just straight to fake tears.
She tearfully stated:
“That’s why almost 200,000 people will lose their lives by the end of this week.”
She repeated the number again and then that was it.
She snapped back to her regular voice as if nothing happened.
Where did this number come from? Was it factually correct? Where did she get her information?
These questions – and many others – come to mind after this eerie statement.
It appears as if she became a different person for a minute to deliver her lines, then went back to normal.
The entire interview comes off as unsettling because of this moment.
What was she trying to achieve?
If she was attempting to tug at voters’ heartstrings, she was not successful in the slightest.
In reality, she achieved the opposite effect.
This fake display of emotion is frankly upsetting and downright disrespectful to those who have lost loved ones to the virus.
Her attempt to fake her tears left a bad taste in every voter’s mouth.
The Democrats have been extremely vehement about the dangers of COVID-19, but their actions do not back up these statements.
This statement comes after her hypocritical haircut, which directly proves she does not care about the dangers of COVID-19 at all.
In addition, Biden and his wife have demonstrated that they do not care either.
They made an event out of going to vote in-person in Biden’s home state of Delaware.
The Democrats may talk like they care, but their actions clearly do not demonstrate this in the slightest.
