Pelosi: Boasting of Elite Lifestyle Better Than Injecting 'Lysol in Somebody's Lungs'
House Speaker defends her video amid backlash
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) defended her recent "Cribs" style interview, where she boasted about her elite lifestyle in front of $25,000 fridge stocked up with organic ice cream.
During Tuesday's edition of MSNBC’s “Deadline,” Pelosi blasted President Donald Trump for calling her out on her freezer full of ice cream at the White House.
“The Democrats, they don’t want to come back. I think they should be back here, but they don’t, they’re enjoying their vacation…If you look at Nancy Pelosi eating ice cream on late-night television.”
Pelosi responded to the President's remarks:
“It’s such a good point that as you’re talking, I’m trying to figure out what John McCain or John Boehner, what their profanity-laced response would have been, that I couldn’t have put on this program but that you certainly would have heard and I might have heard about injecting bleach.”

“So rather than spending talking about the president saying we are injecting Lysol in our lungs —he mades a big fuss about my having ice cream in my freezer," she added.
"That is his latest today, his most current today, she has Lysol in her freezer. I have ice cream in my freezer," Pelosi said.
"I guess that’s better than having Lysol in somebody’s lungs as he is suggesting.”
“Again, enough of him, enough of him, it’s not worth it to just dwell on him," the Hosue speaker blasted.
"We have to go forward, and the Republicans will have to make their own decision."
"I can just imagine what John McCain would be saying now, that great American patriot who was treated disrespectfully by this president.”
Last week, the Trump campaign released a crushing video ad calling out Pelosi for boasting about her elite lifestyle while under lockdown as real Americans everywhere are suffering.

Nancy Pelosi blocks funding for people to keep getting paychecks.
But she’s got a $24K fridge full of ice cream, so she’s cool.

The campaign ad hammers Speaker Pelosi over her praise of Senate Democrats refusing to replenish the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP).
Pelosi's praise comes as Americans struggle financially due to the global coronavirus pandemic.
The ad has come as a direct response to Democrats stalling to replenish the PPP.
Despite working in government all her life, Pelosi's net worth is said to be between $34 million and $160M.
