House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is fond of calling herself a person of faith. Although it’s a rather hollow belief if she thinks it allows her to delay virus relief for Americans in order to achieve political power.
She basically admitted that she had blocked relief until after the election, until in her words there was a “new president.” Translation? She held off relief, knowing it would hurt President Donald Trump in the election despite the fact that it was her fault the relief was held up. Now, she’s willing to settle for a smaller deal than was actually offered before the election.
“We couldn’t pass legislation until now. Because the administration simply did not believe in testing, tracing, treatment, wearing masks, sanitation, separation, and the rest. Scientific approach. It becomes clear to us now that they believed in herd immunity, quackery, springing right from the Oval Office. And not denied sufficiently by some of the CDC and the rest. So now we have a vaccine and that gives us hope. A vaccine that is — springs from science,” Pelosi said.
Vaccines that spring from the work and the effort of the president Pelosi attacks, Donald Trump. Herd immunity isn’t “quackery,” it’s basic science, it’s what you’re trying to amplify with the vaccine.
But she wasn’t finished there.
Her claim to faith didn’t stop her from attacking other people because of their faith.

“People say around here sometimes, ‘I’m faith-oriented so I don’t believe in science.’ And I said, ‘Well, you can do both.’ Science is an answer to our prayers. And our prayers have been answered with a vaccine. And in this legislation we had provision for it to be developed, purchased, and distributed in a way, again, that is fair and equitable and free,” she continued.
There is no way any Republican (or Democrat, for that matter) had any such a conversation with her. Faith does not equate to a lack of belief in science and believing that it does is belittling those who have faith. Pelosi often seems to have a lack of understanding of science but it isn’t something required by her faith. This is a nonsense claim to attack people. Every American should condemn such a thought.
Notice also how she’s trying to take credit for the distribution of the vaccine when Trump has already developed it, purchased it, been distributing it and yes, it is for free. But if you weren’t paying attention and just listening to her, you would think somehow she was behind it. She’s so despicable.
Ok, WHO says that around there?
Faith and reason go together.
But Pelosi’s party shuts down churches while strip clubs are open.
That’s not science. https://t.co/nfXRrmiEfU

I guess she took a break “from the science” when she decided to go to a salon without a mask and get her hair done. She’s above we plebs though, so it’s okay.
And these are the same people who did everything in their power to stop sick people getting lifesaving drugs.

You were offered a relief deal by the White House before the election @SpeakerPelosi that included $1200 cash payments for the people. We are now only getting $600 cash payments. You need to resign right fucking now. #ResignPelosi

You don’t believe what you are saying. At all. This is political hackery – just like your refusal to help small business, your no mask hair cut, your vaccine PR photos, & all of it. https://t.co/dt65OYUAUv

REMINDER: This person is so afraid of coronavirus that she got her haircut in a salon with no mask on. And she’s 678 years old.
None of them are worried about coronavirus. None of them. https://t.co/YUADwtYbH1
