Hollywood Liberals Gush Over Nancy Pelosi At DC Awards: 'She's a Badass’
The California Democrat was honored for public service at the event
Hollywood celebrities gathered in Washington at the Lyndon Baines Johnson Foundation awards on Wednesday to heap praise on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
The California Democrat was honored for public service at the event.
Actor Michael Gill, from television’s “House of Cards,” didn't hold back when praising the House Speaker:
“She’s badass. She’s everything you could want, in a way, out of a strong, vulnerable, powerful woman,” Gill said, according to The Hill.
“Anytime she asks me to do anything, I show up,” added Tony Goldwyn, who played a fictional president on TV’s “Scandal.”
Pelosi did not miss the political opportunity to address the Trump impeachment inquiry while accepting the award.
“Nobody I ever knew or know goes into public life to impeach a president of the United States,” she reportedly said.
“This is sad for our country. It has to be done prayerfully, and carefully [and] solemnly.
“We do believe that there is a risk to the republic if we do not maintain what our founders put forward: three co-equal branches of government, separation of powers with a check and balance on each other, so we didn’t have a monarchy,” she continued.
Pelosi on Thursday, oversaw a House vote on an impeachment rules resolution, agreeing to the vote to take a talking point away from Republicans.
The resolution passed along party lines 232-196.

While the Do Nothing Democrats FAIL the American People, and continue the Impeachment Scam, my Administration will continue to deliver REAL RESULTS, as seen over the past month, below! pic.twitter.com/dxjHusgiFX— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 31, 2019
The home of Nancy Pelosi. I can’t believe her voters can be happy with the job she and the Do Nothing Democrats are doing! San Francisco has really gone down hill. So sad! https://t.co/z0Tms6gkDy— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 1, 2019
But two Democratic members voted against the impeachment measure.
New Jersey Democratic Rep. Jeff Van Drew and Minnesota Democratic Rep. Collin Peterson voted against the resolution.
President Donald Trump blasted the Democrats’ impeachment effort as a “Scam," saying Pelosi’s home district in San Francisco “has really gone down hill [sic],” and retweeted a City Journal story on the city’s homelessness problem.
“I can’t believe her voters can be happy with the job she and the Do Nothing Democrats are doing!” the president wrote.
A coalition of forty conservative groups filed an unprecedented ethics complaint against Pelosi on Thursday, accusing the Democratic House speaker of "weaponizing" impeachment proceedings against Trump.
The complaint alleges that Speaker Pelosi (D-CA) has “hypocritically usurped” the authority of the president and used the proceedings to advance the Democrats' anti-Trump agenda.
“In launching her 'official' impeachment inquiry without the benefit of a vote of the full House of Representatives and without indicating anything remotely qualifying as 'treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors' that is the subject of the inquiry, Speaker Pelosi has weaponized impeachment,” the complaint read.
