Biden Spends Almost $11K On Pelosi’s Favorite Ice Cream for ‘Donor Gifts’
Federal Election Commission (FEC) reveals Biden Campaigns pending
Presidential candidate Joe Biden's campaign has splashed out nearly $11,000 on ice-cream favored by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who last month came under fire for boasting of her collection during an interview.
Biden's campaign has spent $10,600 on Pelosi’s favorite ice cream as gifts for donors between May 2019 and March 2020, according to the Federal Election Commission (FEC).
President Donald Trump blasted Pelosi in a campaign ad, calling her out for focusing on eating ice cream instead of working with Congress to put together coronavirus funding legislation.
Pelosi came under fire for boasting about her elite lifestyle while under lockdown as real Americans everywhere are suffering.
The House Speaker showed off her fully-stocked $24,000 refrigerator in her luxury home during an episode of “The Late Late Show” with James Corden.
Pelosi, whose net worth is estimated to be between $34 million and $160M, was slammed for boasting about her elite lifestyle while Americans are struggling to eat amid the economic fallout from the pandemic.
Last week, Pelosi said she is against including a payroll tax cut in the next coronavirus relief bill.
“First of all, this is all to be related to the coronavirus. We have enormous, enormous costs, much of it incurred because the president was in denial early on, delayed a reaction to it, caused deaths," Pelosi said.

Republicans like Florida Sen. Marco Rubio have criticized Pelosi for her response to the coronavirus crisis.
Rubio said he would give Pelosi all the ice cream in his fridge if she agrees to help struggling small businesses.
Rubio released the video on Twitter where he opens his fridge and pulls out a bag of ice cream, telling Pelosi:
“I will give you all the ice cream I have in here, Madam Speaker if you will fund small businesses and stop holding it hostage.”
An agreement was reached on Tuesday between congress and the White House on the coronavirus bill aiming to help people and businesses across the country.
The legislation includes roughly $470 billion in relief funds, while $310 billion will go to the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP).
