Pelosi Blasts Immigration Panel of 'Five White Guys'

Nancy Pelosi mocks bipartisan meeting on immigration for having only white men

Nancy Pelosi mocks bipartisan meeting on immigration for having only white men

Not exclusively, of course, but yesterday it seems both ends of Pennsylvania Avenue celebrated Say Something Offensive Day.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi is once again proving how out of touch she and her party are with average Americans.

"The five white guys I call them, you know", Pelosi said at her weekly news conference. The lack of involvement in these talks from nonwhite members of Congress delays the deal, she said, since any DACA agreement will require approval from the Congressional Hispanic Caucus and other groups.

Her comments prompted an immediate rebuke from Hoyer, the long-time No. 2 House Democratic leader.

'That comment is offensive. "I am committed to ensuring DREAMers are protected and I will welcome everyone to the table who wants to get this done", the 19-term Maryland Democrat told Politico.

"Leader Pelosi has every confidence in the leadership of Whip Hoyer and Senator Durbin, which they have demonstrated on this topic for years", Drew Hammill said. "It's not a question of who's there, but who's not there".

These comments stand in stark contrast to Pelosi's dismissal of Walmart's $1,000 bonuses announced Thursday, that were facilitated by the company's tax savings.

Rep. Nancy Pelosi is upset because there are no minorities in the group of congressional negotiators trying to hammer out an agreement on immigration.

Is it still Christmas?

"A number of companies are attributing the tax bill for being able to give higher wages to their employees as well as being able to give a number of bonuses to their employees".

Hoyer and more than 20 bipartisan legislators met with Trump on Tuesday to negotiate a possible deal on the expiring Obama-era program. Besides, it's only white males she's criticizing - an easy target whose complaints about being singled out by their race can easily be shot down by simply calling them racists. "I think it's going to do tremendous things for our economy, and unfortunately, we are in a very, very partisan climate, but that does not stop us from doing what we think is right to help people in this country and to grow the economy".
