As she wrapped up her weekly news conference, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi was asked if she would attend the San Francisco 49ers' NFL playoff game this weekend. "It would be my intention to go," she said. "I have, unfortunately, responsibilities to save our country from peril." Some in the briefing room laughed at the remark. Pelosi did not elaborate on what "peril" exactly means. Tensions between the US and Iran escalated this week following a US airstrike that killed Iran's top general. The House is expected to vote today on legislation that could restrain Trump's ability to launch military action against Iran. Meanwhile, Pelosi is also holding onto the articles

Comments:

Batty Nancy sashayed through yesterday’s rambling presser, appearing to throw as much trivia into her comments as there was serious business. Re the football game she’d miss, she went on at (uproarious, to her) length about the family rivalry with D’Allesandros still rooting for Baltimore, yada, yada, yada. Airhead.

I agree with her that it is unfortunate that she has responsibilities to our country. However, probably not for the same reason.

LOL! As if anything this witch does is of any real significance. The biggest hammer in her tool kit is impeachment. She has managed to turn that into a joke. All the rest that she does is even more impotent, less important.

As a life long 49er's fan it has been such a pleasure to watch the team this year, with all the drama gone. Didn't watch for a couple of years. Last time I was at a Giants playoff baseball game they put the camera on Pelosi and she got booed. My husband and I howled.

Personally, I believe it is fitting that Nasty Nan hails from the filthiest city in the country. Where else are people encourage to defecate on the streets? Instead of trying to ward off all kinds of disease by fixing this problem, she is too busy bumbling her way through pressers and trying to desperately to destroy a sitting President who is doing more for Americans in three plus years than the totally corrupt democrat party she leads has done in decades, if ever. She draws attention to herself never thinking that she is a walking joke to the majority of Americans. This old biddy will miss nothing. She’ll get just as plastered on Capitol Hill as she would in the stadium or watching from home. If she hasn’t been imbibing prior to these press conferences, she definitely needs to see a physician who specializes in geriatrics to be tested for dementia.

Both organizations had faced years of withering attacks from sex and gender revolutionaries who were angered because the two renowned Christian ministries affirmed the biblical definition of marriage. So when Chick-fil-A made their decision public, many Christians accused the company of backing down to a bunch of militant LGBTQ bullies. And in response many of Chick-fil-A's staunchest supporters flew the coop.

No one in the British press really cared about the official reason for the visit, though. At the time, Hollande was living at the Élysée Palace with his girlfriend, but he had just been revealed to have been having an affair with a French actress—he had been darting to her apartment on the back of a scooter, protected by his official security team and his face hidden from view by a motorbike helmet.
