House Speaker Nanci Pelosi is getting called out after making an extremely bizarre statement after Derek Chauvin was found guilty recently.
The speaker went on to thank George Floyd for ‘sacrificing your life in the name of justice. Moreover, the strange set of remarks came after a former cop from Minneapolis, George Floyd, was found guilty on all three charges attached to his name.
Pelosi’s exact words included, “Thank you George Floyd for sacrificing your entire life for justice, for being there to call out to your mom.”
The shocking remarks were made at a recent press conference that included members arising from the Congressional Black Caucus. All of the lawmakers sat together in one room, where they watched the verdict off of the Capitol, confirmed local media sources recently.
Pelosi also mentioned how grateful she was to the jury for validating what the world saw, with particular reference to the incident caught on camera where Chauvin knelt down on Floyd’s neck for nearly 9 whole minutes.
The House Speaker strongly felt that George Floyd’s immense sacrifice would always be remembered alongside the thousands of others who came out to protest in the name of justice. Therefore, the name Floyd has now become a true symbolic representation of the term justice.
Without a doubt, the Speaker was called out for her bizarre train of thought, with many comparing it to a foot in the mouth situation. But the Speaker didn’t waste any time in soon coming out with further clarification of her remarks via Twitter.
“George Floyd should be alive today.His family’s countless calls for justice for his death were heard by millions around the world.
He certainly did not die in vain,” she went on to proclaim.The Speaker concluded her statements by mentioning how the world must now make sure that no family has to go through the pain, suffering, violence, and racism the way Floyd’s family had to go through.
