During Nancy Pelosi’s weekly press conference on Thursday she referred to the September 11, 2001 terror attacks that killed nearly 3,000 people as an “incident.”
Pelosi referring to the United States worst terror attack in history as an “incident” puts her right in line with Hillary Clinton’s comment about Benghazi when she said “what difference at this point does it make.” Both of them rhetorically downgraded the significance of a very tragic incident. No doubt Pelosi will regret it just like Clinton did.
The Daily Caller reports:
Pelosi was describing her opposition to the now-reversed policy of the Trump administration of separating illegal immigrant children from their parents when they cross the border illegally.
Pelosi said the Trump administration believes that “if you are a mom who wants to escape rape, murder and gang violence for your child, and you’ve tried to come to asylum in the United States, you are unfit, and we’re taking your child away from you.”
Pelosi was defending her stance on weaker border enforcement in an attempt to pivot the blame for the current border crisis to Republicans after 9/11.
“When we had the 9/11 incident,” Pelosi said, “the commission was formed and they made the recommendations. They made recommendations to protect America, and some were about our borders, and Republicans would not take them up.”
Pelosi went on to say that she believes Democrats will be victorious in November midterms because Americans think this is not “who we are as a country” to take children away from their parents.
Americans are still reeling from that horrific day and millions of people who lost family and friends were probably shocked to hear Pelosi refer to 9/11 as an “incident”, but than again, what difference at this point does it make… it makes a lot of difference.
