House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is really pushing the envelope.
Between impeachment and Iran escalating its war with the United States, Pelosi is under pressure to navigate the Democrats through two political minefields that could blow up in the party’s face.
And things just got worse as Nancy Pelosi hit Mike Pence with this slap in the face that left Pence red with rage.
Speaker Pelosi and the Democrats spent days in mourning over President Trump giving the order to terminate Iranian terrorist General Qasem Soleimani – who was responsible for the deaths of over 600 American soldiers.
Democrats could not bring themselves to celebrate taking Iran’s most dangerous military commander off the board because it might benefit Donald Trump politically.
Instead they questioned why now was the time to take out Soleimani even though forces under his command just killed a U.S. contractor and stormed the U.S. embassy in Baghdad.
Pelosi’s fury continued even in the face of Iranian retaliation.
President Trump tasked Vice President Mike Pence with briefing Congressional leaders on Iran firing 15 ballistic missiles at U.S. air forces bases at al-Asad and Irbil in Iraq.
Pelosi was beginning a caucus meeting with Democrats when Vice President Pence reached out to inform the Speaker of the impending Iranian missile attack.
But in an outrageous sign of disrespect, Pelosi refused to take the Vice President’s call.
Heather Caygle of the D.C. swamp gossip site POLITICO reported that Pelosi ordered an underling to inform the Vice President that she would call him back.
“In meeting tonight Speaker Pelosi was handed a note telling her VP Pence was on the phone. ‘Tell him I’ll call him back,’ she said according to sources in room, noting she had to go open the House for new session. Two minutes later, she was handed note about air base bombing,” Caygle reported.
Pelosi and other Democrats threw a hissy fit over President Trump not briefing Congress ahead of time about the plan to eliminate Soleimani.
Those complaints were exposed as partisan cheap shots because Pelosi could not even be bothered to pick up the phone and learn the details of an attack that potentially put American lives in harm’s way.
To make matters worse for the Speaker, Pelosi was photographed living up it up with well heeled cronies at a restaurant opening while Iranian missiles flew through the sky and toward American troops.
Thankfully, Iran understood that Donald Trump killing Soleimani meant the game had changed and the United States would enforce a red line on targeting Americans.
The Iranians targeted empty areas of both bases in a clear signal that they launched the attack just for show so their domestic audience would think the government struck back at the Americans.
But in reality, the Iranians waved the white flag and backed down in the face of Donald Trump standing up in defense of American lives.
Unfortunately Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats demonstrated they do not share that concern.
