An elected official that’s responsible for ensuring the Democratic Party passes legislation in the House raised eyebrows after making inappropriate comments about the president.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) was recently caught telling fellow Democrats at a CCP (Chinese Communist Party) Virus stimulus meeting that she plans to inflict as much pain as possible when she removes President Donald Trump from the White House by force.
“I plan to pull him out of there by his hair, his little hands, and his feet,” she allegedly said according to Politico.
Pelosi revealed she cannot wait until the incumbent moves out, so Joe Biden can be sworn into presidency on Jan. 20.
“I am counting down the hours until he is gone,” she said according to the publication.
When Fox Business reporter Brittany De Lea contacted the House speaker’s office to give her staff a chance to challenge the accuracy of the quotation, Pelosi and her team chose not to respond at all according to Fox News.
As The BL previously reported, this is not the first time Pelosi controversially suggested removing President Trump from the White House by force.
“The fact is whether he knows it yet or not, he will be leaving,” she told MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” “It has nothing to do with the certain occupant of the White House does not feel like moving and has to be fumigated out of there because the presidency is the presidency.”
Even if the president has still not vacated the White House, Democrats will not postpone holding Biden’s mostly virtual inauguration ceremony.
“Just because he might not want to move out of the White House does not mean we will not have an inauguration ceremony to inaugurate a duly elected president of the United States,” Pelosi said. “It is not geography or location so; so much for him.”
Biden decided not to invite fellow Americans to join him and vice-presidential candidate Kamala Harris for their inaugurations at the Capitol.
Biden virtual inauguration
Biden defended his refusal to allow anybody to attend because it would help contain the CCP Virus, and prevent the deadly disease from infecting what he anticipates to be a record crowd with hundreds and thousands of spectators.
The White House has already implemented strict social distancing measures that could theoretically allow the event to proceed as planned. However, the Presidential Inaugural Committee is still insisting on turning away Americans who take an active interest in federal politics and telling them to stay at home.
“Our goal is to create an inauguration that keeps people safe, honors the grand traditions of the presidency, and showcases the Biden-Harris administration’s renewed American vision for an inclusive, equitable, and unified citizenry,” committee CEO Tony Allen said in a statement obtained by Reuters.
There will be a significantly scaled-down ceremony and “extremely limited” traditional parade. Anyone who is not invited will have to watch the event on social media or through mainstream media outlets instead.
The committee is also urging people who do not live in Washington to avoid traveling to the nation’s capital before, during, and after the event.
