House Speaker Nancy Pelosi had a pretty tough time trying to pronounce the word “Dominican” this week.
While briefly speaking on Monday before a group of Dominican Americans, the California Democrat slurred her words and struggled mightily to pronounce the names of the Dominican honorees.
Pelosi kicked off her remarks by bizarrely cackling into the microphone before asking, “Are there any Dominicans in the House?”
Pelosi knew the answer to that question because it was an event for “Dominican Americans,” but she was apparently desperate for applause.
“I thank our first Dominican American elected to Congress for the invitation to be here. Aren’t we proud with our first Dominican elected to Congress?” Pelosi began, slurring her words and having a tough time getting the words out.
When Pelosi looked at her notes, it was obvious she didn’t know how to pronounce the names of people associated with the group.
“Let me just say that you invigorate America, with your hopes, your dreams, your aspiration,” Pelosi said.
After botching names and slurring her words, Pelosi declared: “Dominican Americans make America more American!”
The audience was clearly not too impressed with Pelosi given many in the clip can be seen chattering and looking around while she’s fumbling through her remarks.
Last week, Pelosi got busted using a completely fake Bible verse.
During a news conference, the California Democrat peddled the same Bible verse that she has been using for over a decade.
But there’s just one huge problem: the verse doesn’t exist.
Here’s more from Fox News:
Years ago, to support a push for global warming legislation, she said in an Earth Day press release: “The Bible tells us in the Old Testament, ‘To minister to the needs of God’s creation is an act of worship. To ignore those needs is to dishonor the God who made us.'”
Pelosi has quoted the false passage at least 11 times from the House floor since 2002, according to the Congressional Record.
Slate reported that she has used it to recognize genocide in Darfur, support the Endangered Species Act, and twice to honor Catholic schools. She was publicly criticized in 2008 but seems to acknowledge that, of the thousands of Bible verses to choose from, she can’t pinpoint exactly where it is.
“I can’t find it in the Bible but I quote it all the time, and I keep reading and reading the Bible. I know it is there someplace,” Pelosi told the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities conference last Wednesday. “It’s supposed to be in Isaiah, but I heard a bishop say to minister to the needs of God’s creation is an act of worship. To ignore those needs is to dishonor the God who made us.”
“It’s in there somewhere in some words or another, but certainly the spirit of it is there,” Pelosi said. “And that we all have a responsibility to act upon our beliefs and the dignity and worth of every person.”
Making matters worse, she peddled the made-up Bible verse while she was attacking Trump and calling for more liberal immigration measures.
