Pelosi Accused of Attending Ritzy Party While U.S. Troops We’re Under Attack

Nancy Pelosi reacted to news of bombings targeting U.S. troops in Iraq by tweeting:

Closely monitoring the situation following bombings targeting U.S. troops in Iraq. We must ensure the safety of our servicemembers, including ending needless provocations from the Administration and demanding that Iran cease its violence. America & world cannot afford war.

However many social media users noticed that only minutes earlier she was snapped at a Ritzy party at Danny Meyer’s Maialino Mare opening in Navy Yard.

Anna Spiegel wrote:

Soooo she was there for all of 10 minutes and I took a blurry 15th row photo with my iPhone7 (she’s not drinking, she’s gesturing). Thanks for the feedback though!

Reporter Heather Caygle observed:

In meeting tonight Speaker Pelosi was handed a note telling her VP Pence was on the phone.

“Tell him I’ll call him back,” she said according to sources in room, noting she had to go open the House for new session.

Two minutes later, she was handed note about air base bombing.

Kevin Baron defended Pelosi, tweeting:

Pelosi is catching sh*t from the right for being at @maialinomare‘s DC restaurant opening tonight. I WAS THERE, she was there for about the length of the blink of an eye. Said hi, took a photo, left. Iran/Iraq news broke as my car pulled up to the event, I did basically the same.

Liz Cheney saw it differently, tweeting “Speaker Pelosi is an embarrassment and unfit for office”
