WTF? Nancy Pelosi Thanks George Floyd for “Sacrificing Your Life for Justice”
In one of the strangest reactions to the Derek Chauvin trial verdict, House speaker Nancy Pelosi thanked George Floyd for “sacrificing [his] life for justice.”
“Thank you, George Floyd, for sacrificing your life for justice,” Pelosi said Tuesday. “For being there to call out to your mom—how heartbreaking was that?—call out for your mom, ‘I can’t breathe.’ But because of you and because of thousands, millions of people around the world who came out for justice, your name will always be synonymous with justice. And now we have to make sure justice prevails in the sentencing, but that’s its own procedure.”
You have to hear it to believe it. Watch:

Suffice it to say that Pelosi’s disturbing reaction to the Chauvin verdict is hardly the only one among leftists. Stay tuned for more here on Big League Politics.
In case you’ve been out of the loop, a jury found Derek Chauvin guilty on all counts in last year’s death of George Floyd. The deliberation was quick, and they deemed him guilty on the charges of second- and third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter.
Chauvin now awaits sentencing, which will take place in approximately eight weeks. He is in police custody without the possibility of bail.
