Nancy Pelosi Uses Offensive Nickname for Immigration Negotiators
Speaking of someone who shows signs of being mentally unfit for their position, Nancy Pelosi played to reporters using a nickname she came up with to call the immigration negotiators. "The Five White Guys" she calls them, which some are finding offensive. It sounds like Pelosi may be a little bit bitter about not being invited.
washingtonexaminer.com reports: House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., offered up a nickname for the group of five lawmakers currently negotiating an immigration deal, dubbing them the "Five White Guys."
When asked Thursday who exactly is negotiating the immigration deal that would extend protections to recipients of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, Pelosi pointed to the second-in-commands in the House and Senate — House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer, D-Md., Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn, R-Texas, and Senate Minority Whip Dick Durbin, D-Ill. — and John Kelly, the White House chief of staff.
"The 'Five White Guys' I call them ... You going to open a hamburger stand next or what?" Pelosi joked during her weekly press conference, garnering laughs from reporters in the room.
BREAKING: Shots Fired! Look Who Just Ripped Pelosi!!
A top Democrat slammed House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi for her highly offensive “five white guys” remark when speaking about the congressman working on immigration reform.
The Hill reported: Democratic Whip Steny Hoyer (Md.) on Thursday blasted Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi's (D-Calif.) remarks about white men working on an immigration agreement as "offensive."
"The five white guys I call them, you know," Pelosi said, referring to five bipartisan lawmakers, including Hoyer, leading efforts to salvage the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. All five of the lawmakers are white.
"Are they going to open a hamburger stand next or what?" she said, referring to the popular fast food restaurant "Five Guys."
Hoyer pushed back against the remarks.
"That comment is offensive. I am committed to ensuring DREAMers are protected and I will welcome everyone to the table who wants to get this done," he told Politico in a statement, using the nickname referring to recipients of the DACA program.
Hoyer was one of over 20 bipartisan legislators from both the House and Senate who met with President Trump on Tuesday to discuss a possible deal on the Obama-era program, which will expire in March.
Pelosi earlier this week suggested that it was a mistake not to include minority representatives in the discussions.
"The sensitivity even on the wording is really important [and] for people who are engaged in these issues to be there at the table. They've been working on it in a bipartisan way for a long time," Pelosi said.
Hoyer maintained that no agreement came out of the meeting, though Senate Democrats suggested there was a preliminary agreement on Republican demands for enhanced border security and immigration policy changes.

“May 2018 be filled with #love #health #everythingyoueverdreamed #happynewyear,” Paul Pelosi Jr. captioned a photo of himself alongside President Trump’s daughter, Ivanka Trump, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.
Pelosi Jr. did not respond to a media inquiry from the San Francisco Chronicle about the photos, but his sister Christine Pelosi said the family was not shocked he spent the holiday at Mar-a-Lago.
“He is just an adventuring guy,” she said, according to the Chronicle. “Maybe he had a golf game.”
