Pelosi too busy for V.P.’s call on embassy attack

Empower Wisconsin | Jan. 9, 2020

For all of her belly-aching about the White House not alerting congress before taking out terrorist and Iran military leader Qassem Soleimani, Speaker Nancy Pelosi apparently couldn’t be bothered  to take a call from Vice President Mike Pence, Tuesday evening.

The V.P. was phoning to say Iran had just launched a ballistic missile attack on U.S. forces in Iraq.

“Tell him I’ll call him back,” Pelosi said, according to Politico reporter Heather Caygle.

Madam Speaker, according to news sources, later tweeted that she was “closely monitoring the situation.”

“We must ensure the safety of our servicemembers, including ending needless provocations from the Administration and demanding that Iran cease its violence. America & world cannot afford war,” Pelosi tweeted.

 

Apparently she was “closely monitoring the situation” from a posh D.C. restaurant. And not just any restaurant.

As first reported by Washingtonian’s Anna Spiegel, Pelosi was hobnobbing with hospitality magnate and liberal sugar daddy  Danny Meyer. Shake Shack’s founder invited the California congresswoman to the grand opening of his posh Maialino Mare.

Trump-hating Meyer penned a dour letter to employees of his Union Square Hospitality Group the day after Trump won the 2016 presidential election.

“Donald Trump will be our next president. I acknowledge that I found it hard to type those words, but there, I did it, and it was actually therapeutic. Acceptance of reality is never a bad first step to healing,” he wrote, struggling to “sort out” his feelings.
