Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick on Monday slammed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Democrats for insensitivity during the coronavirus pandemic.
“The nerve, the audacity of Nancy Pelosi … she’s sitting there in front of, I don’t know, a $20,000 freezer, or whatever she has, she looks like she’s in a commercial kitchen, I know she’s very wealthy. She’s showing people this expensive chocolate, this expensive ice cream that someone told me sells for $12 or $13 a pint or gallon,” Patrick said during an appearance on Newsmax TV’s “The Chris Salcedo Show.”
“It’s offensive to me. People are out there in food lines and she’s showing off her ice cream? Who is this person? Who are these people? They have no heart, no sensitivity at all for what America is going through? So get off your butt, go back to work, take a pay cut.”
Patrick was referring to Pelosi’s appearance on CBS’ “Late Late Show” last Monday where she showed host James Corden her elaborate ice-cream collection while standing in front of a high-end, pricey refrigerator.
Pelosi later posted the clip to Twitter, with the caption: "We all have found our ways to keep our spirits up during these trying times. Mine just happens to fill up my freezer."
“They need to get off their butt and get back to work,” Patrick said. “For the Republicans – they need to be at their desk, every day.”
Patrick also said of Texas’ plan to reopen the economy: “I don’t give a hoot and a holler what the Democrats are doing around the country. We’re going to do what is right by Texans and hopefully lead and set the example here.”
