With the Democratic Party tearing at the fabric of American society with its partisan impeachment inquisition, where the lower chamber of the legislative branch of the U.S. government is attacking the executive branch, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi took a break from the exhausting work of unseating a duly elected president to meet a rapper.

One day before holding a floor vote on impeachment that confirmed it’s a one-sided endeavor, rapper 50 Cent paid a visit to Capitol Hill and met with Pelosi.

The rapper, whose real name is Curtis Jackson, was looking to advocate for diversity and representation in the entertainment industry, according to The Hill. He was also pushing for Starz to remain as part of Comcast Xfinity — the network is home to his “Power” series, which he produces and stars in.

But it was the timing of the visit that stood out more so than the stated purpose.

Taking to Twitter with a photo of the encounter, 50 Cent tweeted: “My #1 Lady Nancy Pelosi — Big Changes Coming.”

As for where he stands on impeachment … well, read between the lines in the tweet below, which shows a screenshot of CNN covering Pelosi’s impeachment resolution, accompanied by his photo with the speaker.

“Fear is an option but danger is real, Pelosi is no joke,” he tweeted.

Pelosi was far from the only Democrat star-gazing as they push their impeachment sham, as GOP leadership refers to their efforts to take out Trump.

Rep. Bobby Rush, D-Ill., a walking embodiment for the desperate need for term limits in the Washington, D.C. swamp, shared photos with the rapper online while plugging 50 Cent’s show and calling for more shows featuring “people who look like us.”

In a photo 50 Cent shared on Instagram, he is seen also meeting Rep. Tony Cardenas, D-Calif.,

“I met with @repcardenas to discuss the importance of producing and promoting diverse programming,” read the caption of the photo.
