Nancy Pelosi was called out for her insistence on jamming a Cannabis bailout into this latest round of ceremonially burning taxpayer dollars. But she had an explanation.
It was about as convincing as the explanation we heard in the old Blues Brothers clip.
‘… there was an earthquake… a terrible flood… locusts! It wasn’t my fault…’
So, this isn’t the first time they’ve had this bailout priority. Why is it so damned important that the Democrats bail out pot producers?
Pelosi was asked, “Republicans and the administration got a lot of heat when they released their bill. Because there was a lot of unrelated things in there, including money for the FBI building, money for defense to replenish the wall. There’s some things in your bill that’s not directly related to COVID, like they’re talking about cannabis or the SALT reduction. Are those things that you’re willing to also strip out of the bill?”
Pelosi responded, “Well, I don’t agree with you that cannabis is not related to this. This is a therapy that has proven successful, and it is by no means of the caliber of money or misrepresentation that remodeling the federal building is for over a billion dollars so that another hotel doesn’t come in there and compete with the president’s hotel. That’s what that’s all about. That has nothing to do with the coronavirus. So, we’re going to have to come to some compromise on the legislation. I just don’t accept that there’s any equivalence in what you put forth there.” — Breitbart
Hold up. What?
“Well, I don’t agree with you that cannabis is not related to this. This is a therapy that has proven successful.”
This is a COVID bill, right?
Are you saying cannabis is a successful COVID therapy?
We’re no doctors here at ClashDaily, but we’re pretty confident that SMOKE isn’t going to help with a virus that has prominently featured respirators and masks in the fight against it.
So, is Pelosi going to get those warning labels on HER social media accounts now because she’s a flake?
