Newly elected House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was slammed for her shameless lack of self-awareness after she criticized President Trump’s border wall.
During a news conference after a two-week partial government shutdown over funding of the president’s proposed wall, the California Democrat called it “a waste of money” just hours after she reclaimed her speaker’s gavel, according to the Washington Post.
“The fact is a wall is an immorality. It’s not who we are as a nation,” she said on Thursday.
Pelosi insulted the intelligence of millions of Americans and blasted the president as a “master of diversion,” claiming his obsession with funding the wall had nothing to do with the security of the nation, as Trump has maintained, but is a ruse to distract from other issues he apparently really cares about.
“This is not a wall between Mexico and the United States that the president is creating here,” she said. “It’s a wall between reality and his constituents, his supporters. He does not want them to know what he’s doing.”
The Democrat leader reiterated that “we’re not doing a wall.”
“It has nothing to do with politics. It has to do with a wall as an immorality between countries. It’s an old way of thinking. It isn’t cost effective,” she argued.
In an op-ed for Townhall, Guy Benson posed a question to the Democrat who jetted off to Hawaii to “observe” Christmas during the government shutdown while Trump remained in the White House, without his family.
Question for Speaker Pelosi: If The Wall is “immoral,” does she favor tearing down existing physical barriers along the US-Mexico border, as a moral imperative? Or does immorality only apply to new construction / depend on who the president is?https://t.co/IP3iQQ1PsD

“Because if she truly believes that a border barrier is “immoral” unto itself, she should be campaigning to tear down that wall. And she couldn’t possibly let obstacles like the cost or logistical difficulty stand in her way; she’s positioned herself as a moral crusader, and this is a moral crusade,” Benson wrote.
Pelosi’s grandstanding on what’s right and wrong brought down a hailstorm of criticism as Twitter users called out the speaker’s smug argument for morality.
Spoken like a true godless person!they call evil good and good evil!

So the WALL THAT IS surrounding her house is immoral

Holy crap, she is listing problems created by past presidents as though they were Trumps fault. And also they all asked for a wall, Its been built for 20 years at least. America is better off if they were on the same side at the same time.

The hypocrisy of the Democrats is nothing but the game plan of a party that can and will say anything to stay in power and crush our democracy. They probably sit back and laugh at the responses to their stupidity like we’re all pawns in their game of ignorance. Master BS’ers.

“Walls are immoral.” is a new sin. Elite: it’s for you, not for me. Will Nancy Pelosi demand, “Mr.Obama, tear down this wall!” outside Obama’s DC mansion? pic.twitter.com/oiMSEz3Khy

Dear Speaker Pelosi,
Why is a wall in certain sections of the Border immoral, and Drones, Armed Guards are moral?
Should we be outlawing walls in Gated Communities, because I feel excluded by them?@realDonaldTrump #StopHumanTrafficking https://t.co/dWsdlN3muD

Nancy Pelosi said WALLS ARE IMMORAL? So every American, business, govt needs to remove any WALL, FENCE, BARRICADE that surrounds our homes, businesses, govt buildings, military installations because they are immoral. Your privacy, security is not of concern.
