Nancy Pelosi is such a despicable person.
The city of Portland, Oregon has been under siege from far left fanatics for 50 straight days. The Trump administration has deployed federal officers to the city to help quell the violence and destruction.
Nancy Pelosi called them ‘stormtroopers.’
It’s a disgusting thing to say. Do you think she refers to her personal security detail that way?
Nancy Pelosi says Trump deployed ‘stormtroopers’ to quell Portland protesters, slammed for ‘despicable’ analogy
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Friday, July 17, lashed out at the Donald Trump administration accusing it of deploying “stormtroopers” in Portland recently to tame civil protesters and restore normalcy. Relations between Oregon state authorities and those at the federal level have soured over the deployment of unidentified forces that have arrived in unmarked vehiclesto counter the protesters.
President Trump deployed the federal officials who attacked the demonstrators with tear gas and other less-lethal means. Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf called the protesters, who have been demonstrating since the brutal death of George Floyd in police custody in Minneapolis on May 25, a “violent mob”. He also said the city of Portland has been under siege for 47 consecutive days.
See Pelosi’s tweet below:
Unidentified stormtroopers. Unmarked cars. Kidnapping protesters and causing severe injuries in response to graffiti.
These are not the actions of a democratic republic.@DHSgov’s actions in Portland undermine its mission.
Trump & his stormtroopers must be stopped.

This got a strong response from people on Twitter who were disgusted by her remarks:
The speaker of the House is 3rd in line to the presidency and this is how she refers to American law enforcement officers? as Stormtroopers like in Nazi Germany … @SpeakerPelosi you are despicable and owe all Americans an apology, especially the thin blue line. https://t.co/VBh1mTk81o

Nancy Pelosi just compared American police officers to Nazi stormtroopers. Absolutely disgusting rhetoric. She owes the thin blue line an apology immediately. https://t.co/xOKkKmXUM9

The Speaker of the House is siding with the violent mob. Amazing.
