Before the Christmas break, Nancy Pelosi said Trump would probably play golf during the government shutdown. But she was the one who ran off to a luxury resort in Hawaii. She even got called out for this on a news program but again took another cheap shot at the president.
The Washington Free Beacon reports:
Pelosi Defends Her Hawaii Vacation During the Shutdown
Incoming Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.), in an interview that was released on Thursday, defended her vacation to Hawaii over the holidays in midst of a partial government shutdown.
Pelosi spoke with “Today” host Savanah Guthrie on Wednesday about taking over the speakership again and having to work with President Donald Trump to resolve the shutdown.
“The president took a swipe, I think, as recently as today, saying that you went on vacation to Hawaii during the shutdown. Now, you had said before the shutdown that he was being quite cavalier and maybe the shutdown will give him more time to golf, but in the end it was you that took a holiday,” Guthrie said.
“I observed the Christmas holiday for a few days, and I cut in half the time I would have had,” Pelosi responded…
“It’s not important. It’s totally unimportant, but the fact is we all stood ready and told our members we’ll have 24 hours notice for all of us to be where we need to be,” Pelosi said. “And the president may not know this, but Hawaii is part of the United States of America. Maybe he doesn’t realize that. I don’t know where the president observed the religious holiday of Christmas. Do you?”
