Pelosi Has Despicable Insult for Armed GOP Members

How ridiculous is this?!

Despite the ever-present calls for unity that President Joe Biden has been blathering on about, there is still plenty of tension throughout Washington DC, not the least of which is reverberating throughout the halls of the Capitol like the low hum and an angry crowd, just outside the gates.

For instance, in a rebuttal to an agreeing tweet on the subject of the stock market, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez accused Senator Ted Cruz of “trying to have [her] murdered” just a few weeks ago.

This persistent, stressful air about Congress manifested itself with Nancy Pelosi as well this week.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said the chamber will likely allocate more money for members of Congress to invest in additional security to protect them from the likes of violent rioters who stormed the Capitol on Jan. 6 — but also from the “enemy” within the House.

“We will probably need a supplemental [budget] for more security for members when the enemy is within the House of Representatives — a threat that members are concerned about in addition to what is happening outside,” Pelosi said during her weekly news conference Thursday at the Capitol.

And Nancy wasn’t pulling any punches, either.

When asked for clarification on what she means about the enemy within, Pelosi specifically called out fellow members of Congress.

“It means we have members of Congress who want to bring guns on the floor and have threatened violence on other members of Congress,” Pelosi said.

Colorado Rep. Lauren Boebert had an altercation with Capitol police after refusing to allow her bag to be searched after it set off newly-installed metal detectors in the building.  The freshman Congresswoman had made it clear that she intended to carry her pistol on the floor of Congress throughout her campaign.
