Liberals Outraged Over Pelosi’s George Floyd Comments

(Headline USA) House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) sparked outrage Tuesday over her comments following the guilty verdict for Derek Chauvin, the police officer convicted of killing George Floyd.

“Thank you George Floyd for sacrificing your life for justice,” Pelosi said following the jury’s decision. “For being there to call out to your mom ― how heartbreaking was that? Call out for your mom, ‘I can’t breathe.’ Because of you and because of thousands, millions of people around the world who came out for justice, your name will always be synonymous with justice.”

Pelosi made the comments at a press conference with other lawmakers.

Social media exploded with criticism of Pelosi from, particularly her use of the phrase, “thank you for your sacrifice.”

The attacks came from both sides of the aisle.

“He was murdered,” tweeted liberal activist DeRay McKesson.

After reporters, pundits and others continued to pile on, Pelosi released another tweet trying to clean up the mess.

George Floyd should be alive today,” Pelosi said on Twitter. “His family’s calls for justice for his murder were heard around the world. He did not die in vain. We must make sure other families don’t suffer the same racism, violence & pain, and we must enact the George Floyd #JusticeInPolicing Act.”
