Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi was just exposed. This is awful — she has a lot of explaining to do. Americans are rightly confused and angry.
Reportedly, Speaker Pelosi “was handed a note telling her VP Pence was on the phone,” but she responded, “Tell him I’ll call him back.” Pence was calling to brief her on the Iranian attack.
“Two minutes later, she was handed note about the air base bombing” carried out by Iran on two U.S. military bases in Iraq. She eventually called him back, but the lack of respect here is astounding.
Pence, ever the statesman, clearly wanted to brief Pelosi as soon as possible — the vice president doesn’t randomly call for no reason. But she was apparently too busy to be bothered.
According to reports, Pelosi was in a meeting and was also set to open a session of the House, however, nothing is more important than an update on national security.
Americans should question whether Pelosi has her priorities straight. A strong argument could be made that she does not — which is another reason why Republicans need to retake the House in November.
