In case you were wondering, Nancy Pelosi is STILL talking on House floor, has been since 10 am

Update: She’s still talking.

Watch live below:

Taking a page out of Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer’s failed playbook, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said this week she will not support a new budget deal to avert another government shutdown unless House Speaker Paul Ryan commits to considering immigration legislation.

Democrats continue to sell out in their determination to represent the interests of foreign nations in the U.S. illegally over taxpaying American citizens. The 77-year-old lawmaker took to the House floor Wednesday at 10:04 a.m. and was STILL going more than three hours later.

Pelosi used what is known as a “magic” minute, which is unlimited time available in the House for party leaders only.

Never mind that Ryan has already committed to what his Democratic colleague is “demanding.”

She has been reading emotional stories about DREAMers seeking amnesty, looking past the fact that aspiring American citizens are also dreamers, as President Donald Trump reminded the nation during last week’s State of the Union address.

The California lawmaker also invoked the Declaration of Independence and America’s founders to advocate on behalf of illegal immigrants.

NBC News’ Washington correspondent Kasie Hunt took to Twitter to remark on the inconsistency in Pelosi’s message compared to what Schumer was saying at the exact same time.

“Nancy Pelosi is on the House floor decrying the budget-deal-without-DACA while Chuck Schumer is on the Senate floor touting it,” Hunt tweeted.

Naturally, Pelosi has no real solutions, as the Daily Wire’s Ryan Saavedra pointed out.

The political theater by the top ranked House Democrat caught the attention of social media… here’s a sampling of responses from Twitter:
