Trey Sanchez over at Truth Revolt reports on a hilarious question Nancy Pelosi was asked during her rant against “inordinate wealth.”  She was at a town hall meeting when the House Minority Leader was heckled.  “Pelosi is currently on a 100-city anti-GOP tax bill tour because, apparently, being a politician means constant campaigning and never working for the people,” Sanchez writes. “She was right in the middle of a spiritual lecture on the evils of getting rich when a member of the audience asked the obvious.”

Ha!  Here’s the transcript of the spiritual lesson that was interrupted by the heckler:

PELOSI: The national budget should be a statement of our national values… this is about our children’s future… It can’t possibly be a statement of values for us to talk about, as Martin Luther King said… “God… never intended for one group of people to live in superfluous inordinate wealth while others live in abject, deadening poverty.” [applause] … Most people are not in deadening poverty, but some are. But most people have to struggle to make ends meet.

HECKLER: How much are you worth, Nancy? Are you in abject poverty?

PELOSI: No, we’re not talking about that. I’m a mother of five, I can speak louder than anybody.

So, what does “motherhood” have to do with her wealth?  With her inability to deal with her hypocrisy? Sanchez points out that Pelosi’s annual property tax bill alone (she has 3 three luxury homes) was $137,000.  That’s more than twice the 2016 U.S. median household income.

Remember when Pelosi mocked the GOP tax cuts, because no one really needs a paltry thousand dollars?  I guess if you have three luxury homes, a thousand bucks isn’t that much to you.

That heckler on Tuesday morning spoke for all of Americans sick and tired of politicians not recognizing their own ridiculous privilege.
