BREAKING NEWS – Washington, D.C. – Political commentators and others were baffled by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s, D-Calif., moment of “bizarre” applause during President Biden’s State of the Union address.
A smiling Pelosi awkwardly stood up and rubbed her hands together as Biden was talking about the soldiers stationed in Afghanistan and elsewhere “breathing in toxic smoke from burn pits.” Political personalities and more were quick to point out the moment on Twitter.
Pelosi was very blunt and blatant when she responded on Twitter. “If people read their bible more often, they would understand my actions,” she began. “In Revelation 9:2 there is something about smoke coming from a bottomless pit. I said that in reference to my belief that a good portion of democratic leaders in this nation, including myself, are destined to be thrown in hell based on the political decision we’ve made. And I was applauding our unity in regards to our eventual eternal roast.”
