From The Hill:
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) says in a new interview that she would have put up a fight had she encountered rioters at the Capitol on Jan. 6.
“Well, I’m pretty tough. I’m a street fighter,” Pelosi told USA Today while acknowledging that some rioters intended to harm her. “They would have had a battle on their hands.”
She is 81 years old. She is at least 10% Zinfandel by volume.
What was she going to do, defend herself with a corkscrew?
Pelosi joked that she had a weapon on her in the form of her stilettos.
“I would have had these,” she said while lifting up her foot, according to USA Today.
She’s going to fall and break a hip.
This bullshit is beyond any level of suspension of disbelief I have. It was easier to believe that some low testosterone writer couldn’t handle Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s exercise routine which meant RBG was going to live forever.
Honestly, if Speaker Grandma could take on the Capitol stormers barefoot with a stiletto heel in each hand like a Lucille Bluth/John McClane fan-fiction Mashup then they all deserve to be let go because they were never a threat to begin with.
