Nancy Pelosi is a horrible person.
She recently politicized the death of George Floyd by saying Republicans were trying to get away with his murder.
George Floyd was killed in a Democrat city, in a Democrat state, with a Democrat governor and Democrat senators.
Republicans haven’t had control of Minneapolis or Minnesota for generations.
FOX News reports:
Pelosi says Republicans ‘trying to get away with murder’ of George Floyd
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi asserted in an interview Tuesday that Republicans are “trying to get away with murder, actually — the murder of George Floyd” — marking a dramatic escalation in rhetoric as the Democrat-controlled House prepares to pass its police reform package.
Pelosi, D-Calif., speaking to CBS News Radio correspondent Steve Futterman, said Senate Republicans’ reform proposals in the wake of Floyd’s in-custody death in Minneapolis were “unsalvageable” and won’t make “any difference.”
Specifically, Pelosi said Democrats want a total ban on chokeholds, which Attorney General William Barr has also suggested he would support. But, Pelosi said, some Republicans are waffling on the issue.
“For something to happen, they’re going to have to face the realities of police brutalities, the realities of the need for justice in policing, and the recognition that there’s many good people in law enforcement, but not all. And that we have to address those concerns,” she said.
“So, when they admit that, and have some suggestions that are worthy of consideration — but so far they were trying to get away with murder, actually — the murder of George Floyd,” Pelosi continued.
What an absolutely despicable thing to say.
Tim Scott, the first Black man to ever serve in both chambers of Congress, drafted the Senate GOP police reform bill. Nancy Pelosi accuses him of “trying to get away with the murder of George Floyd.” https://t.co/K9dw90IbPv

As our country is hideously divided & Dems prepare to filibuster the Justice Act—they want a political issue, not real reform or real civil rights protections—Nancy Pelosi engages in vicious, false race-baiting.

This is absolutely disgusting. @SenatorTimScott is an incredibly effective policy maker and leader on racial justice and policing reform. America is blessed to have him in the United States Senate. @SpeakerPelosi should immediately apologize for this hateful statement. https://t.co/xaPrHOOdYj
