Well, that’s embarrassing.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi was caught trying to manipulate crowd reaction at a Democrat protest on Monday night.
The California Democrat was heard on a hot microphone urging her fellow congressman to tell the crowd he is a Muslim.
Rep. Andre Carson and other congressional Democrats spoke in front of the Supreme Court to protest President Donald Trump’s executive order calling for a temporary halt to immigrants entering the U.S. from several Muslim-majority countries.
The Indiana congressman stepped up to address the crowd after Pelosi introduced him as a “Muslim member of Congress.”
“Greetings from the great state of Indiana. I’m Congressman Andre Carson!” he said.
“Tell them you’re a Muslim. Tell them you’re a Muslim,” Pelosi was heard telling Carson from off to his side.
“Not only do I represent Indiana’s seventh congressional district very proudly,” Carson continued, “but I happen to be a Muslim and a former police officer.”
The crowd ate it up, cheering Carson on.

This is what identity politics looks like. It’s not patriotic, it’s not rational: all it does is divide. https://t.co/HYAUOjNBPd

@Thomas1774Paine the fact the Cali voters reelected this idiot is proof that most of that state is a huge mental case. Sheesh…

@Thomas1774Paine OMG what a pack of agenda-driven morons! Did they do this when O did the same thing or when Bill Clinton did it 6 times?
