Nancy Pelosi wants her constituents to think she’s on the job, so she sent out a tweet, but it’s easy to see that her real priority is racking up a bar tab.
While American military bases in Iraq were under attack by radical Iranian extremists, the House Speaker was getting her drink on and schmoozing with progressives to plot the overthrow of President Trump.
Pelosi claimed in her tweet to be “closely monitoring the situation.” Apparently, she was monitoring it from the safety of Danny Meyer’s Maialino Mare Restaurant. She was accidentally outed by one of her fans, Anna Spiegel.
Closely monitoring the situation following bombings targeting U.S. troops in Iraq. We must ensure the safety of our servicemembers, including ending needless provocations from the Administration and demanding that Iran cease its violence. America & world cannot afford war.

Ms. Speigel is the food editor at Washingtonian Magazine and was there to cover the grand opening of the new D.C. Navy Yard eatery. GOP Rapid Response Director Steve Guest didn’t waste any time alerting the public.

Pelosi insists she’s worried about the “safety of our servicemembers.” Does that mean she wants them to have the equipment, training, and force numbers they need to focus on their missions and carry them out successfully? No. She wants to stop the “needless provocation from the Administration.”
How dare President Donald Trump demand that Iran “cease its violence.” We “cannot afford war,” Pelosi tweets, hinting we should be saving our money to send them pallets of cash instead. They need the money to get their nuclear centrifuges back up to full speed.
Along with his reposted image of a cheerful and smiling Pelosi, seemingly unconcerned about the rain of missiles falling in the Mid-East, Guest noted, “earlier in the evening, Pelosi delayed getting on the phone with @VP Pence who was calling her to provide a briefing.”
That prompted a reply with more information from Politico reporter Heather Caygle. “In meeting tonight Speaker Pelosi was handed a note telling her VP Pence was on the phone. ‘Tell him I’ll call him back,’ she said according to sources in room, noting she had to go open the House for new session. Two minutes later, she was handed note about air base bombing.”

The woman who allowed the streets of San Francisco to become a public toilet didn’t seem to be the slightest bit concerned that two dozen missiles were fired at both American forces and our allies. Thankfully, there have not yet been any reports of casualties.
President Trump is expected to issue a statement on Wednesday after more intelligence comes in and gets analyzed.
