House Speaker Nancy Pelosi originally complained that President Trump did not consult with Congress before the deadly U.S. drone strike that targeted the Iranian terrorist General Qassem Soleiman at the Bagdad International Airport.
So when Iran responded with the launching of over a dozen missiles at U.S. bases in Iraq, Pelosi said in a tweet that she was “closely monitoring the situation.”
In reality, Pelosi was attending a fancy dinner party.
Then when Mike Pence called Pelosi to tell her about the Iranian missile attacks, it was reported that her response was “Tell him I’ll call him back.”
Rep. Liz Cheney blasted Pelosi saying that she was “unfit for office.”
From Western Journal News:
Following reports of the attack, Pelosi tweeted, “Closely monitoring the situation following bombings targeting U.S. troops in Iraq.
We must ensure the safety of our servicemembers, including ending needless provocations from the Administration and demanding that Iran cease its violence.”
However, just minutes before she sent the tweet, the House speaker was spotted at the opening night of Danny Meyer’s Maialino Mare restaurant in Washington, D.C.
Anna Spiegel, the food editor of Washingtonian magazine, tweeted the photo evidence of Pelosi at the restaurant, time-stamped 17 minutes before Pelosi’s tweet was published.
