As covered previously by RedState’s excellent streiff, President Trump canceled Nancy Pelosi’s classified trip to Afghanistan Friday. This was followed by a “leaking” of her Plan B to travel commercially.
Say it ain’t so!
In response, via a spokesman, Pelosi accused Trump of endangering her very life:
“The fact that they would leak that we were flying commercial is a danger not only to us but to other people flying commercial. It was very irresponsible on the part of the president. In light of the grave threats caused by the president’s action, the delegation has decided to postpone the trip so as not to further endanger our troops and security personnel, or the other travelers on the flights.”
She was no doubt also unnerved by the idea of flying commercial, period: the 70-year-old ultra-left-wing politician and Artist of the Absurd has a reported net worth of $120 million (here and here). She ain’t flyin’ JetBlue, Jack!
Pelosi’s had quite the week, including special guests on her wall-adorned property, testing the consistency of her stance that “a wall is an immorality” (here). All they wanted was to be let in the house for a turkey sandwich. She failed the test — police were called.
More from Friday’s statement:
“In the middle of the night, the State Department’s Diplomatic Security Service provided an updated threat assessment detailing that the President announcing this sensitive travel had significantly increased the danger to the delegation and to the troops, security, and other officials supporting the trip. This morning, we learned that the Administration had leaked the commercial travel plans as well.”
The White House denies leaking dangerous information.
Nancy Pelosi denies being a goofball.
I deny Nancy’s denial.
