Nancy Pelosi confesses that she opposed coronavirus relief for political reasons

After months of refusing to pass a coronavirus relief package, Nancy Pelosi is now saying that she’s willing to pass one – because she’s confident that President Trump won’t get the credit. That has even the leftist media crying foul.

At Pelosi’s most recent press conference, CNN Senior Congressional Correspondent Manu Raju asked Pelosi, “Was it a mistake not to accept half of a loaf months ago? When you said I’m not going to accept half a loaf –?”

Pelosi snarled back: “I’m going to tell you something, don’t characterize what we did before as a mistake, as a preface to your question if you want an answer. That was not a mistake. It was a decision, and it has taken us to a place where we can do the right thing without other, shall we say, considerations in the legislation that we don’t want. Now, that is it. Now, the fact is, I’m very proud of where we are.”

She’s proud of denying relief to millions of struggling Americans so that she can play political games? What a disgrace.

Rick Moran, writing for PJ Media, points out:

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has suddenly found religion — or, at least a coronavirus relief package not authored by a Democrat that she could support.

Pelosi said she agreed to go along with the $908 billion bi-partisan pandemic relief bill and refused to back other bills because we’ve got a “new president and a vaccine.” Is that a tacit admission that she didn’t support extended unemployment payments, money for schools, hospitals, and small businesses because she hated Donald Trump?

Why yes. Yes, it is.

This sort of behavior is what we’ve come to expect from Nancy Pelosi – and it’s also 100% unacceptable.
