This move, right here, was so petty—Even for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. Video shared on Twitter showed the California Democrat waving her arms a bit as she spoke — and when she realized how close Flores’ daughter was to her, she lowered her elbow and shoved the little girl aside.
“Clearly, Nancy Pelosi is a horrible person … but what really made me smile about this is the young lady is being raised right. She moved right back over and blew off the nasty elbow,” radio host Joe “Pags” Pagliarulo tweeted.
“Has the Left excused Nancy Pelosi’s elbow to Mayra Flores’ daughter yet, or are they ignoring it; same as they’ve done with everything since Biden was elected? Couldn’t have been my daughter. I would have broken all kinds of decorum. ‘ELBOW MY KID AGAIN AND SEE WHAT HAPPENS!’” Zeek Arkham added.
“It’s about the children…” says Speaker Pelosi,” House candidate Chip Roy wrote.
Rep. Mayra Flores of Texas accused Pelosi of assaulting her daughter after the above video showed her posing with Pelosi and her family at the ceremony — with conservative commentators saying the speaker “elbowed” Flores’ daughter.
“No child should be pushed to the side for a photo op. PERIOD!!” Flores captioned a retweet of the video.
“I am so proud of my strong, beautiful daughter for not allowing this to faze her,” she said. “She continued to smile and pose for the picture like a Queen.”
Flores has been dubbed as the future of the GOP. Her groundbreaking nomination shook Democrats as Flores immigrated to the US from Mexico and dominated in votes in a deep blue city in Texas. Liberals have even accused Flores’ supporters of being ‘racists’ which… I mean. How stupid.
Personally, I am not surprised that Pelosi would shove the little girl away from her for a photo op but I also feel like it was done in spite because Flores’ historic win marks the beginning of the end for Democrats.
