Speaker of the House “Nasty” Nancy Pelosi got a decidedly less than warm welcome when she appeared at the Global Citizen Festival in New York with her husband Paul Pelosi back in September. She appeared on stage, was introduced by an Indian actress named Priyanka Chopra Jonas, and then the crowd went wild. But not with applause.
Incredibly, in a city with 68 percent of registered voters declaring themselves to be Democrats, “Nasty” Nacy was booed. And not just booed a bit by one or two drunk guys embarrassing their girlfriends. No, as she tried to expound on “climate change,” Nancy got booed loudly. Very loudly. Kyle Tomczak wrote: “I was at the global citizen festival in Central Park Manhattan, and they brought Nancy Pelosi out and she got heavily booed.”
More than one video came out of Nancy Pelosi being booed after multiple people uploaded their videos of the incident with the Democrat, with people taking to places like Twitter to show off how they or their fellow audience members had managed to boo and humiliate Nasty Nancy.
Pelosi, for her part, tried to do her best to stay on script and on message. And so she continued along with the prepared speech, saying: “It’s thanks to your help that the United States recently enacted historic climate legislation, which will be a game changer. It will slash carbon pollution by 40 percent by 2030, it will give a historic, an historic $370 billion to fight the climate crisis.”
But that didn’t go well. Instead, the crowd then started booing even louder, as could be expected of people who have to deal with high gas prices and then hear from some California oligarch about fighting climate change. Are any of her properties “energy efficient” compared to the small house or apartment the typical American family lives in? On a total amount of energy used basis, methinks not.
In any case, the crowd’s booing just kept getting louder and Pelosi just kept trying to ramble on, which must have been as funny for the crowd as it was humiliating for Nancy Pelosi. Here’s what Breitbart reports happened:
As the audience grew even more loud in its response, several hecklers are heard yelling “let’s go!” apparently looking for the evening’s entertainment to resume without a politician taking center stage. The Post report added Pelosi tried to continue her speech, saying the bill would result in “better water and air for our children” as well as “better-paying jobs and lower energy bills for their parents.” The California representative can also be heard calling for “better water and air for our children” and “better-paying jobs and lower energy bills for their parents.”
Perhaps the event and the massive booing coming from the crowd at it will wake Pelosi up to the fact that people care more about how the country and its economy are doing than some vague plan to fight the angry sun monster before it gets a degree or two warmer. But that would require a bit of self-introspection. And so it seems unlikely from Nancy.
