Trending hashtags capture anger: ‘Pelosi Chokes While People Go Broke,’ and ‘Pelosi Hates Americans’

Americans who have had their livelihoods taken away from them without notice as a result of the Chinese virus COVID-19 are hurting and desperately looking to the U.S. government to deliver much needed relief.

Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin joined with President Trump last week at a press briefing and assured Americans that checks will be coming in a matter of days, and the Senate worked through the weekend on a spending measure. With a bipartisan deal within reach, House Speaker Nanacy Pelosi threw a hand grenade into the mix.

So egregious was her actions that the hashtag #PelosiChokesWhilePeopleGoBroke was soon trending online.

A massive $1.6 trillion emergency funding bill providing critically needed assistance to American families and the economy was blown up Sunday when the California Democrat said she would not support the measure and would offer her own spending bill in due time.

The fact that Pelosi would brazenly delay a much needed stimulus effort without paying a dear price politically can only be explained by her media enablers, who can be counted on to run cover for her obstruction.

Obstruction that allows her to craft a bill stuffed with goodies for the left.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., was livid, and in what proved to be a very rare occurrence, he criticized the speaker of the House from the Senate floor.

“Now the build up to this, so everybody fully understands, is that we had a high level of bipartisanship in five different working groups over the last 48 hours where members who were participating were reaching agreement,” McConnell said. “And then all of a sudden the Democratic leader and the Speaker of the House shows up, and we’re back to square one. So, we’re fiddling here — fiddling with the emotions of the American people, fiddling with the markets, fiddling with our health care. The American people expect us to act tomorrow. And I want everybody to fully understand — if we aren’t able to act tomorrow, it will be because of our colleagues on the other side continuing to dicker when the country expects us to come together and address this problem.”

The lemmings on the left praised Pelosi for her actions, convinced in their limited grasp on events that she is looking out for the people and standing up to American corporations — this being part of the progressive left’s familiar class warfare angle.

And while the media dutifully ran cover for the Democratic leader, social media was another matter.

Here’s a sampling of some of those responses:
