Any objective observer who pays even a modicum of attention to American politics knows that the hypocrisy of the Left knows no bounds — particularly in the Age of Trump. That said, there is no denizen of Capitol Hill more hypocritical than Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
Investigative journalist and Fox Nation host Lara Logan decided to pay a visit to Pelosi’s multi-million dollar home in San Francisco to see how the other half lives — particularly given the wealth-redistribution (socialist) lifestyle she incessantly tries to sell to America.
That is when “the other half” isn’t lecturing the rest of us about how we should trust her and House Democrats to tell us how to live our lives.
As reported by Fox News, Pelosi’s Pacific Heights mansion is “as far removed from life under socialism as you could imagine,” Logan says, standing outside the multi-story brick home in the new series “The Socialist Invasion,” available exclusively on Fox Nation.
“The super-wealthy, like [Kamala] Harris and Pelosi, are always exempt from the socialist policies they push on everyone else. And because of the enormous wealth in Silicon Valley, the center of power in California has shifted from Los Angeles to San Francisco.”
Not bad for a “servant of the people,” is it?

“Socialism is at the heart of much of the conversation,” Logan says in the following preview, interspersed with clips of Donald Trump, Bernie Sanders, and others. “What would a socialist revolution really look like?” she asks, warning: “Where agitators infiltrate peaceful protests, threatening our very way of life.”
Incidentally, Pelosi’s net worth is among the highest in Congress, estimated at more than $100 million, as noted by Fox News.
Democrat vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris is worth approximately $6 million and owns three homes, including a luxury apartment not far from Pelosi’s San Francisco digs, Logan observed.
“Nancy Pelosi told Wolf Blitzer that she ‘represents us,’ one Twitterer said, adding: “Nancy Pelosi, who lives in a gated mansion, who is worth over $100 million, and has $25,000 worth of ice cream in her freezer, will never ‘represent’ you.”

As we reported on Wednesday, Pelosi’s latest dustup with Blitzer went all kinds of crazy after the CNN host suggested to Pelosi that she continues to hold hostage a second round of coronavirus stimulus checks by refusing to negotiate a deal with Trump — a deal about which Blitzer reminded Pelosi even multiple House Democrats support.
And how’d that all turn out?
Pelosi totally lost her marbles — assuming she had any marbles left to lose — angrily calling Blitzer, along with pretty much all of CNN, a “Republican apologist.”
Pelosi, as she has demonstrated multiple times during her tenure as House Speaker, would rather withhold $1,200 stimulus checks from everyday Americans in need of the money than agree on anything with Trump that could be perceived as giving him a win.
Pelosi’s degree of hyperpartisanship is equaled only by the depth of her hypocrisy — and 2020 has not been a good year for Madam Speaker in either case.
As my RedState colleague, Nick Arama covered in April at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, Pelosi got caught with her lack-of-self-awareness pants down while pretending to commiserate with the little people. The problem being, she was standing in front of her very expensive freezer packed with very expensive pints of ice cream at the time — while bragging about it, no less.
And in September, as my RedState colleague, Sister Toldjah reported, a mask-less Pelosi was caught on video visiting a hair salon closed to the public due to COVID. Hilariously, Pelosi claimed she had been “set up,” as an excuse for an out-of-touch woman who lectures the rest of us about wearing masks.
The bottom line.
Elitist liberals like Nancy Pelosi go through their lives largely unaffected by their hypocrisy or the deserved criticism they receive. She is not only impervious to it; she rails against those who call her out, incredulously believing she is somehow the aggrieved party.
That said, there is at least one saving grace, here.
The degree to which Donald Trump has lived rent-free 24x7x365 in Pelosi’s head for the last four years — coupled with the depth of how much it angers her — “almost” makes her inexcusable nonsense tolerable. “Almost” being the operative word.
