House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., must go to bed every night thanking God that the American media is in her party’s corner.
A common refrain from those who took to the streets to protest the death of George Floyd was, “Say his name.”
Of course, the first step in accomplishing this is to know his name, which proved to be a challenge for the 8o-year-old speaker as she commented on an exchange with George Floyd’s brother.
Pandering in response to the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act, which Democrats passed Thursday in the House, as Pelosi recalled the exchange she referred to Floyd as “George Kirby.”
“And I’m very proud… that before he testified he said to me, ‘Madam Speaker, do you think that I can tell George’s daughter his name will be always remembered because you’ll name the bill for him,” Pelosi said. “And I said, ‘Well I’ll recommend that to the Judiciary Committee and to the Congressional Black Caucus, who’ve shaped the bill, but I only will do that if you tell me that this legislation is worthy of George Kirby’s name. And he said it is.”
This from those in the Democratic Party feigning that they care SO much about the man’s death.
The plural application being appropriate because Pelosi had company.
Serious company, as in Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., who flubbed Floyd’s name multiple times, even though he was reading from notes.
Schumer first called George Floyd “Floyd Taylor,” only to correct himself and blow it a second time, calling him “George Taylor.”
This is B E A U T I F U L
Schumer & Pelosi who both deeply care about George Floyd so much that they can even remember what his name is. https://t.co/VVsiTQIdfo

It would all be comical, if not for the strife now tearing at the seams of this nation as Democrats exploit an unfortunate incident for the hope of electoral success, pushing a racially divisive narrative that recent statistics do not support.
National Republican Senatorial Committee senior advisor Matt Whitlock let the party leaders have it, rightfully so.

With Senate Democrats blocking a GOP-sponsored police reform bill, Whitlock tweeted: “Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer can’t even get George Floyd’s name correct as Democrats block debate on police reform in the Senate.”
Protestors around the country calling for police reform have been chanting “say his name — George Floyd.”
Well they blocked police reform, they can’t say his name.. but at least they did that kente cloth thing, right?https://t.co/A06rXnLUUY

That’s because well whatever his name is is a political tool not a real victim.

Because he means nothing to them, he’s just being used as tool to try to get what they want.

And I’m sure their version of the bill reflects their deep and heartfelt mourning of Jorge Whatshisname.

Lmfao they don’t care enough about the man to give him the dignity of learning his name. It’s pathetic

To be fair, George Kirby and George Taylor were the other men they had set up in case the George Floyd act didn’t catch on.
