Mayra Flores Says Yes, Nancy Pelosi Shoved Her Child During Photo-Op

When I first saw the video of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) appearing to shove the little daughter of Rep. Mayra Flores (R-TX) with her elbow during a photo-op for her swearing-in, I thought perhaps it was a manipulated video or maybe the angles weren’t clear. But then I saw a video taken from C-Span that seemed to show the same thing.


As we reported, Nancy looks at her, moves her elbow, and the child moves to her right.

Now Mayra Flores herself is confirming it. Actor James Woods commented on the incident and Flores responded.

“I am so proud of my strong, beautiful daughter for not allowing this to faze her. She continued to smile and pose for the picture like a Queen,” Flores said. “No child should be pushed to the side for a photo op. PERIOD!!”

I don’t get what was going on in Pelosi’s mind. If you think the child is too close to you, you bend over and say, “Honey, can you move a little to the right.” You don’t shove her with your elbow like she’s just not worth your time. But it’s a photo-op, it’s just a few seconds, and everyone is supposed to be close to each other, so what’s the issue here?


Remember, this is the lady who is always saying that she does everything for the children. “Children, children, children,” San Fran Nan intones. Of course, that’s just so many bull cookies. She does what she does, always for her power and the power of the Democratic Party.

Could it be a little latent hostility for Flores’ win in a previously Democratic district and the coming GOP wave in November? If so, that’s pretty petty to take it out on a little child. Flores’ win is one sign that Democrats are rapidly losing Hispanic voters because of their extremism as well as failures on the economy. She even got Elon Musk’s vote. Officially, Pelosi thanked Flores for running. β€œIt’s a great honor to welcome Congresswoman Flores to the Capitol and to the Congress of the United States with great congratulations,” Pelosi said in that video. β€œAnd again, grateful for her leadership and her beautiful family who is here today.” Pelosi’s office hasn’t responded yet to the incident or on Flores’ comments.

But as Flores said, good on her daughter for standing in there like a champ. Flores herself shows that she’s not going to take things lying down, that she’s going to be vocal and she’s already not been shy about speaking out.
