Actor Russell Brand thrashed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) over her husband’s recent stock trades that took place just ahead of legislation pending in Congress, accusing her of having “insider information.”
His scathing new video, appropriately titled, “You’ve Gotta Be F***ing Kidding Me,” bluntly accuses Pelosi and her husband of possible insider trading.
“Are members of Congress, Nancy Pelosi, becoming rich because they are lucky, or is it because they have access to insider trading information that they then give to their husbands who trade on the stock market?” Brand bluntly posited. “Today we’re talking about Nancy Pelosi and the stock market. She has been confronted with the grim truth that possibly some people believe that Nancy Pelosi’s trading deals, or the Pelosi family’s trading deals, are somewhat benefiting from Nancy Pelosi’s insider information.”
He proceeded to play a news clip concerning Paul Pelosi’s purchase of recent stocks, including 20,000 shares of Nvidia. Congress just coincidentally voted to spend billions of dollars on the U.S. microchip industry and his purchase oddly preceded that vote.

“Now, if you see a connection between Nancy Pelosi debating about whether [to] give billions of dollars of support to the chip industry, and Paul Pelosi investing in the chip industry, you’re obviously some sort of conspiracy theorist,” Brand charged.
He then tore into Pelosi’s response to a reporter who asked her at a press conference whether she had ever provided information to her husband that precipitated him buying stocks.
“If ever you’re asked a difficult question in public and you don’t answer it, there’s a few simple tips. First, ask them to repeat the question then sort of crane forward all weirdly,” Brand said while playing a clip of Pelosi doing just that.

“Then say, ‘no,’ as if you’re sort of offended by that, even though perhaps all day at work you’re debating whether or not to give billions of dollars to the chip industry, your husband has just invested in the chip industry. And to make absolutely sure that people know you disapprove of the question, just give that microphone, just give it a little bobbing down, like it’s offered you fellatio but then showed reluctance. Then leave, just leave altogether, walk right out of there, don’t stop walking till you’re at home and you can enjoy some of the money you’ve made from the chip industry,” he railed, nailing Pelosi over her family profiting off stock trades.
Brand’s pummeling of Pelosi comes after Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) wrote a letter requesting that Democrats hold a hearing on banning stock trading for lawmakers and their spouses after her husband made the stock purchase involving the semiconductor firm, according to the Daily Mail.
He’s 100% right, and she’s been doing it for her entire career. The amount of money she’s made off of insider trading and by abusing congress is substantial.

“This issue of whether and how Members of Congress engage in various financial transactions deserves scrutiny by the Committee,” Hawley contended.
The letter referred to Paul Pelosi’s recent purchase of Nvidia shares, which were worth between $1 and $5 million, ahead of a Senate vote on a bill that sought to inject $52 billion into the semiconductor manufacturing industry and give tax incentives for production.
Hawley charged that Paul Pelosi’s “inappropriate” stock trading was nothing new.
“In 2020, Speaker Pelosi and her husband outperformed the S&P 500 by a whopping 14.3 percent,” he stated.
Ninety percent of actively managed investment funds fail to beat the market, according to a report by Index Fund Advisors. This makes the profits obtained by the Pelosis suspect, to say the least.
