Opinion| Mark Sidney| Ok, this is a bridge too far.
The Speaker of The House has clearly gone rogue.
She is either drunk with imagined power, wine, liquor, or perhaps each and every one of these things.
Do you remember when this woman, who seems to me to not be in full control of her mind, and at the very least her ability to recall words when she speaks, and her fellow Dems were incensed that they were not alerted about the US strikes that killed the world’s number one terrorist, al-Baghdadi, ahead of time?
Can you really blame Trump?
Well, the same thing happened when Trump blasted Soleimani into the next dimension at that airport in Iraq.
So you would think that Nancy would jump at the chance to be read in when the Vice President of the United States calls her with urgent news, just days after the strike that took out Soleimani, right?
The Gateway Pundit reported:
‘So Vice President Mike Pence called Pelosi, the third-ranking member of government, on Tuesday night to inform her that Iran was launching missiles on U.S. forces in Iraq.
“Tell him I’ll call him back,” Pelosi said, according to a Politico reporter.
“In meeting tonight Speaker Pelosi was handed a note telling her VP Pence was on the phone,” Heather Caygle wrote on Twitter. “‘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,” Caygle wrote.’
Somehow Ms. Pelosi has seemingly come to believe that she is the commander of the US armed forces.
On Thursday night, the megalomaniacal Speaker of the House had the gall to say:
“We cannot put the lives of American service members, diplomats and others further at risk by engaging in provocative and disproportionate actions,” … “Tonight’s airstrike risks provoking further dangerous escalation of violence. America –- and the world -– cannot afford to have tensions escalate to the point of no return.”
“The Administration has conducted tonight’s strikes in Iraq targeting high-level Iranian military officials and killing Iranian Quds Force Commander Qasem Soleimani without an Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF) against Iran. Further, this action was taken without the consultation of the Congress.”
AYFKM? Where was Nancy when Obama set the entire Middle East a blaze?
Ms. Pelosi, you are not the commander of the armed forces, you are a legislator, and a terrible one at that. Hey, Ms ‘We need to pass the bill, so that, uh, you can find out what is in it’, America sees right through you.
Byron York noted the Speaker’s arrogance and our right stupidity, tweeting:
“Speaker Pelosi doesn’t like it when the administration doesn’t give her foreign policy updates. So VP Pence calls with word of Iran missile attack. ‘Tell him I’ll call him back,’ Pelosi says,”

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

Funny thing is that right before that Tweet was posted, Nancy was photographed, seemingly with drink in hand, at a joint in the Navy Yard:
Long story short, best case scenario, Nancy is a ******* liar, worst case … I’ll let you connect the dots.
