Clueless Pelosi Gets Blasted For Her 'Marie Antoinette' Moment While Americans Are Suffering

Millions of Americans have been thrown out of work by the government closures in response to the pandemic.

One way of trying to save some of those jobs was the Paycheck Protection Program, which provides loans to small businesses and gives them incentives to keep their employees employed.

As we reported earlier, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is bragging about blocking additional funding for the Paycheck Protection Program that’s been saving jobs.

But, no skin off her nose, right? She’s not about to lose her job (well, we can hope, come November, but it is San Francisco so chances are small). What does she care if millions are thrown out of theirs, apparently.

The House beat it out of Washington and wouldn’t be meeting on anything until May 4, “absent an emergency,” says Democrat House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer. Not like we’re in the middle of an emergency and people might need that money to help stay afloat.

But just so you know how much she cares, Pelosi gave us a lovely “Let them eat cake” Marie Antoinette moment from her luxurious San Francisco home, with what looks like two refrigerators. Nice to become rich while being in Congress.

If you’ve lost your job or are having trouble getting toilet paper, food or paying your mortgage or rent, what a great thing it is to see Pelosi talk with James Corden about how she keeps her spirits up “during these trying times,” showing off expensive commercial grade appliances jam packed with her $12 pints of designer ice cream in her freezer.

The shear cluelessness of this at this time is just astonishing. But it’s so normal to her that she doesn’t get how it strikes a bad chord. No, House Speaker, some can’t begin to afford the things you can and you’re keeping people from being able to support themselves.

Needless to say, it sent #LetThemEatIceCream trending on Twitter.
