“Thank you George Floyd for sacrificing your life for justice, for being there to call out to your mom – how heartbreaking was that? – to call out for your mom. ‘I can’t breathe.’ But because of you, and because of thousands, millions of people around the world who came out for justice, your name will always be synonymous,” she said.
Many people on social media expressed their anger and confusion at the Speaker for thanking George Floyd for his “sacrifice.”

if Nancy Pelosi was your grandmother it’s really doubtful that you’d let her drive

I’m ignoring Nancy Pelosi’s terrible statement because today is not about her. It’s about George Floyd, his family, and all of those who have been victims of police violence.

I have written and deleted so many tweets about Nancy Pelosi, but one thing I can say on the internet is that her comments are just exemplary of the the utter contempt with which so many of our elected leaders regard Black, brown, and poor people in this country. Disgusting.
