Speaker Pelosi has politicized the coronavirus stimulus package and as a result, deserves all the mockery she can get.
Fortunately, Carpe Donktum delivers.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi swooped in over the weekend and put the kibosh on an emergency coronavirus spending bill that was drafted by Senate Republicans that even Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer(D-NY) had praised as being truly bipartisan.
Instead, she drafted her own $2.5 trillion House bill that included all sorts of Democrat spending that had nothing to do with helping American families, saving jobs, or dealing with the coronavirus itself. It was a big ol’ barrel of pork that had all sorts of Green New Deal goodies like funding for wind and solar power and requiring airlines — who are already hurting from the grounded flights — to report their carbon emissions.

It was all a ploy to get her political agenda pushed forward that was condemned not just by hard-line, conservative Republicans, but even the more moderate sorts that are willing to reach across the aisle. Sen. Susan Collins(R-ME) is softer on some left-leaning policies but still called Pelosi’s move “disgraceful.”
“I cannot believe the [Democrat] objections to proceeding to this package… Don’t we want to act quickly to provide relief to the American workers? This is disgraceful.”

What was Pelosi thinking?
She really does deserve mockery for this ridiculous stunt.
She’s not the only one pulling ridiculous stunts, though. The Partisan Press is doing the same thing. They are so filled with hate for Trump that they are blaming the idiocy of one couple on the President. (Notice how they didn’t blame Bernie for his supporter that shot at GOP politicians on a baseball field nearly killing House Minority Whip Steve Scalise.)
Several news organizations published stories blaming President Trump for the death of a man who had chosen to “self-medicate” against the coronavirus using chloroquine phosphate, an aquarium cleaner, and not the anti-malaria drug that the President mentioned was being tested. Carpe Donktum posted a meme that blames the eating of Tide Pods on Nancy Pelosi. The video shows House Speaker Pelosi appearing to do a blind taste-test of laundry pods with the caption, “Why didn’t the MSM blame @SpeakerPelosi for starting the TidePod eating craze? #NancyLiedPeopleDied”
***UPDATE: It looks like Carpe deleted the original tweet to publish something that was a little more clear that the video was a parody.***
REMINDER: @SpeakerPelosi was never blamed for encouraging people to eat TidePods.
Because she didn't… Just like Trump didn't encourage anyone to eat Fish Tank Chemicals.pic.twitter.com/9PZMLtQSzL

For our friends in the Partisan Press who don’t understand memes and how they work, we’re doing the “fact-check” for you, so don’t get your panties in a bunch Snopes, PolitiFact, and CNN.
This “manipulated video” by Donktum is a parody of an appearance that Pelosi made on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert back in 2018 where she was taste-testing chocolate.
The difference is the Donktum one was funny and the one on the late-night talk show hosted by a comedian was not.
