House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has clearly lost a step.
But no one was prepared for this.
And that’s because Nancy Pelosi went on TV and what happened next left Americans speechless.
Speaker Pelosi appeared on ABC’s “This Week” to discuss impeachment and President Trump’s decision to eliminate Iranian terrorist general Qasem Soleimani.
After Soleimani’s death, Democrats and the fake news media worked to promote a false narrative that Soleimani was a national hero in Iran and his death united the Iranian people against Donald Trump and America.
This lie collapsed after the Iranian government admitted it shot down an airplane the night it fired missiles on two U.S. air force bases killing all 176 passengers on board.
Protesters in the streets railed against the regime and video even captured Iranians walking around paintings of the American and Israeli flags that were meant to be trampled on in a sign of defiance and disrespect.
Pelosi’s softball interview with Clinton sycophant George Stephanopoulos went south when Pelosi made common cause with the Iranian government by trying to downplay the protests.
Stephanopoulos gently corrected Pelosi, noting that the protesters were in the streets because the Iranian government lied about shooting down the passenger plane, at which point Pelosi claimed anti-government protesters were mixed in with Iranians protesting Donald Trump.
“Yes. Well, whatever it is. But the fact is this, the — there were protesters in the streets before against the regime. After the taking out of Soleimani, there were protesters in the street, joined together, as you know, against us. That wasn’t good. Taking down this plane is a terrible, terrible tragedy. And they should be held accountable for letting commercial flights go at a time that was so, so dangerous. But there are different reasons why people are in the street. Of course, we would love to see the aspirations of the people of Iran realized with a better situation there, but escalating the situation — unless we’ve exhausted every other remedy,” Pelosi rambled.
Speaker Pelosi then falsely accused President Trump of escalating the situation with Iran.
“Well, we don’t know that. We don’t know that. And if the first — the first action to be taken on the threat of — there — there are — a lot of bad actors who are doing bad things and threatening bad things to us. We know that. Iran being one of them. And it being a — it’s proxies doing bad things to our interests throughout the world. But how do we deal with that in a way that calms rather than escalates?” Pelosi asked.
This was a lie.
President Trump lets acts of Iranian aggression such as bombing a Saudi oil field, shooting down an American drone and harassing oil tankers in the Persian Gulf pass because they did not threaten American lives.
But when militias under Soleimani’s command attacked a U.S. base killing an American contractor and then storming the U.S. embassy in Baghdad, President Trump decided enough was enough.
If anything, President Trump’s strike to take out Soleimani de-escalated the situation by forcing Iran to back down from significant retaliation.
