Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi is getting bashed for her comments after the conviction of Derek Chauvin in the trial over George Floyd’s death.
“Thank you George Floyd for sacrificing your life for justice,” said Pelosi.
According to The Hill, Pelosi received “mixed reactions” and one who called her comments a “bizarre statement.”
“It reveals the extent to which a lot of these public figures are truly detached from the reality of lived lives, not just of communities that are of a different racial background or class background, but the whole gamut of being in touch with regular people who understand what the conversation around George Floyd and policing more broadly has been like,” said Briahna Joy Gray, the former press secretary for Bernie Sanders.
To be clear, Gray is not conservative and is likely far left of Pelosi, but her comments illustrate a growing fracture in the relationship between Pelosi and the ultra-left base within her own party.
And being left of Nancy Pelosi is no small feat.
