RNC Chair Ronna McDaniel Unfairly Attacks Nancy Pelosi For Going On Vacation


RNC Chair Ronna Romney McDaniel launched a despicable attack on House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Saturday for going on vacation during the government shutdown.

The shutdown, which President Donald Trump took complete ownership of a few weeks ago on video from the Oval Office, has dragged on for over a week now without an end in sight.

But that didn’t stop Trump from desperately trying to blame Pelosi and Democrats for it, and McDaniel gladly helped Trump blame Democrats by criticizing Pelosi for vacationing in Hawaii:

This is such an unfair attack from someone who should know better.

First of all, Congress is NOT in session and Pelosi is not even the House Speaker yet. That would be Paul Ryan’s job, and he’s the one who gaveled Congress out of session last weekend in an empty chamber.

Furthermore, Pelosi could not have done a damn thing to end the shutdown if she stayed in Washington because Republicans control the House until January 3, 2019. Plus, the House already passed a spending bill that includes $5 billion for Trump’s wall, so it’s up to the Senate to consider it, and it’s out of session as well.

Literally, there is no one around to legislate.

And because Congress is on a scheduled holiday break, Pelosi has every damn right to vacation in Hawaii if she wants to do so, especially since taxpayers are not footing the bill, unlike the bill they are paying for Trump’s New Year’s Eve party at Mar-a-Lago.

As for Trump canceling his Christmas break, he didn’t have much choice considering he had to stay in Washington just in case the Senate gave him a bill to sign. And his trip to Iraq was nothing more than a glorified photo-op that he complained about when he arrived, only to proceed to use the trip as a campaign rally and the troops as political props. There was nothing noble about it.

It should also be pointed out that Pelosi has visited the troops in Iraq on multiple occasions, while Trump had cowardly refused to do so for the last two years until this past week.

Twitter users blasted McDaniel for attacking Pelosi:

This tweet by McDaniel demonstrates that Trump and his allies are going to attack Pelosi and Democrats for every little thing, even if they know it’s unfair. Pelosi, like every American worker, has the right to take time off, especially since Congress is not in session and she doesn’t take over as House Speaker until January 3rd. Of course, it’s no surprise that McDaniel would stoop to such a low for Trump. After all, she dropped the Romney name because Trump demanded it.
