This is pandering to your illegal immigrant fan base at it’s absolute worst.
House Minority Speaker Nancy Pelosi spoke for eight hours on the floor last week, pushing lawmakers to take action on the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.
You know you’re going to get some general craziness if you hear Pelosi speak for five minutes, let alone eight hours. But the story she told about her grandson was bizarre, to say the least.
The leading Democrat spoke of “a very close friend” of her grandson named Antonio, who has “beautiful tan skin, beautiful brown eyes and the rest.”
Pelosi said her grandson was so adoring of Antonio, that he too wished to be Hispanic while blowing out his birthday candles for his sixth birthday.
He didn’t wish for a big toy truck, a nice new bike, or a football to throw in the yard with his dad. He wanted to be Hispanic.
There were many weird moments during Nancy Pelosi's ridiculous filibuster, but this was by far the weirdest.

“This was such a proud day for me because when my grandson blew out the candles on his cake, they said, ‘Did you make a wish?’” Pelosi said in her version of reality. “He said, ‘I wish I had brown skin and brown eyes like Antonio.’ So beautiful, so beautiful. The beauty is in the mix.”
Here’s a video of those in attendance as Pelosi concocted her tale of a six-year-old who wanted to identify as Hispanic …
Fox News host Tucker Carlson shredded Pelosi for the ridiculous and likely untrue story, saying that in her version, Pelosi is essentially teaching her grandson that it’s “healthy to hate yourself for the way God made you.”
Instead telling her grandson he is perfect as he is & he should be proud. She's teaching him to hate himself. To put this into a child's head is ludicrous. And using this for a political ploy is sick.
I'm proud of who I am, never wished I was someone elsehttps://t.co/mL2ANMf7fh

“If you want to live in a country where everyone doesn’t hate everyone else for the color of their skin, you ought not to say things like that,” Carlson explained. “Democrats should stop talking like this in public.”
Come to think of it, Pelosi should probably just straight up stop talking in public.
