Pelosi Called ‘Embarrassment’ After Photo Shows Speaker at Party During Iran Attack on US Troops

Representative Liz Cheney described Nancy Pelosi as an “embarrassment” after a photo emerged showing the House Speaker attending a party after receiving word of an Iranian missile attack on U.S. troops in Iraq. pelosi iran
Iran launched as many as 15 ballistic missiles at bases where U.S. troops were stationed Tuesday evening, though initial reports indicate the strike didn’t kill or injure any Americans.

A Politico reporter noted that Pelosi was at a meeting when she received word that Vice President Mike Pence was on the phone wishing to brief her on the attack.

She couldn’t be bothered with the call.

Is Trump going to win?

“In [a] meeting tonight Speaker Pelosi was handed a note telling her VP Pence was on the phone,” the reporter tweeted. “‘Tell him I’ll call him back,’ she said according to sources in [the] room, noting she had to go open the House for [a] new session.”

Just minutes later, Pelosi was handed another note informing her of the bombing.

 

Wining and Dining While Missiles Are Fired

Shortly after receiving word of the attack on our troops in Iraq, Pelosi was spotted by a food editor for Washingtonian magazine attending the opening of a restaurant in Washington, D.C.

She appears to be smiling in the somewhat blurred image.

 

There was, at that time, no way to have known there were no casualties following Iran’s show of force. She knew American troops had been the target of a bombing but had no way of knowing the extent of the damage.

Pelosi, roughly 20 minutes after that photo was taken and posted, made her own statement on social media claiming she was “closely monitoring” the situation in Iraq.

 

The food editor, Anna Spiegel, responding to backlash over the photo, told followers that the Speaker was only at the restaurant “for all of 10 minutes.”

Still, the optics did Pelosi no favors.

“Speaker Pelosi is an embarrassment and unfit for office,” Cheney (R-WY) wrote.

 

Backlash For Pelosi pelosi iran

Pelosi’s statement warrants criticism not simply based on the background of a restaurant opening just minutes earlier.

By adding the statement “ending needless provocations,” she is taking an unnecessary shot at President Trump.

More importantly, she’s accusing the United States of “needless provocations” without noting that Iran had killed an American contractor and tried to overrun an American embassy just days earlier. That’s a provocation.

 

Perhaps we shouldn’t be shocked by this reaction considering Pelosi also stated that the killing of an Iranian terrorist responsible for taking the lives of over 600 Americans was a “disproportionate” act.
