House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) did an interview from her home in San Francisco with James Corden on “The Late Late Show.”
As we reported earlier, she had her Marie Antoinette moment were she told Corden how she was keeping her spirits up in her luxurious home, eating chocolate, she explained as she sat in front of two uber expensive commercial grade refrigerators. She showed one that was packed with designer ice cream that usually costs about $12 a pint. That sparked a hashtag #LetThemEatIceCream as a recognition of her truly tone-deaf actions in the middle of a pandemic where millions have lost their jobs and are trying to figure out how to live and eat.
On top of all that, she’s the one, along with other Democrats, standing in the way of Americans actually getting help through the Paycheck Protection Program. Pelosi bragged about the Senate blocking the refunding of the program last week. They were given a clean bill, basically saying just put in more money, you already approved the program in the virus relief bill. But the Democrats blocked the refunding with Pelosi saying there wasn’t enough “data” to understand the request. Then they said they wouldn’t be back in session until May 4, “absent an emergency.”
What do they think a pandemic with millions out of work is?
Well the “data” today is that the fund runs out this afternoon, so if you haven’t gotten it yet, you’re out of luck until Pelosi decides to stop eating ice cream and comes back to address the emergency in D.C. and passes the bill.
This is a big deal: "A $349 billion federal relief program for U.S. small businesses is expected to run out of money this afternoon, with many still waiting to get a lifeline, according to officials familiar with the situation." https://t.co/0TWXY8W8vY

Meanwhile how many more will be thrown out of work?
But don’t worry! Because Pelosi says there’s a bright side. See if you can figure out what she’s saying here. She talks about how this is a “wonderful opportunity for them that I wish all children would have”

Well, isn’t it nice she can have the grandkids travel from New York to see her while everyone else is required to stay at home and social distance. Most kids aren’t able to see their grandparents. Isn’t there a stay at home, don’t travel advisory out of New York? Rules for me but not for thee.
Glad this is all a “wonderful opportunity” for them. Pandemics tend not to be wonderful opportunities for most people and perhaps not so much for other kids. Most kids aren’t able to see their grandparents.
Seriously, imagine if President Donald Trump had sad something like that, it would be all over the news about how out of touch and entitled he was. But this wouldn’t even be touched by mainstream media.
