House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, one of the richest members of Congress, cluelessly dismissed the bonuses that many companies are giving to their workers due to Trump’s tax cuts as “crumbs” and “pathetic.” What’s truly laughable though is how the Twitter-verse stepped up to remind her of a little comment she made a few years back…
“A number of bonuses — one of the bonuses was in a union contract and then they added a little more money to that. That same firm just told the employees they were going to be laying off 1,500 people and if they wanted to save their jobs, they could work 32 hours. In terms of the bonus that corporate America receives versus the crumbs they are giving to workers to put the schmooze on is so pathetic,” Pelosi said on Thursday.
“And I would hope with their big advantage of bringing home at a very low rate that they would invest in infrastructure but our experience has been they will seek dividends and buy-backs. It is insignificant.”
Now check this out, per Daily Caller:
More than two million American workers have received bonuses — some ranging as high as $3,000 — thanks to the Republican tax bill, according to a list from Americans for Tax Reform. Other major companies including Walmart and Wells Fargo also announced they would increase their starting hourly wage in response to the tax bill.
Additionally, more than 80 percent of Americans are expected to see their taxes go down in 2018 thanks to the Republican tax bill, which Pelosi claimed would result in “Armageddon.”
It wasn’t that long ago that Pelosi was happily singing the praises of what arguably was a much smaller bump in the average person’s paycheck. The difference? The tax cut she loved was pushed by then-President Barack Obama:
Today's agreement is a victory for the American people-they spoke out clearly & #40dollars each paycheck will make a difference.

Predictably, the response on Twitter was sure and swift! Check it out:

I thought it was crumbs?

This is just another pathetic example of Pelosi liking something when it’s a Democratic idea and then hating it when it comes from the other side of the aisle. But, wait, what was all that rhetoric about bipartisanship and compromise?
It was as empty as your soul, lady.
What do you think of pathetic Nancy Pelosi?
