(Tea Party PAC) – House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) commonly understood by many Americans to be a complete traitor, proved it once again after her shameful reaction to Iran’s missle attacks on Iraqi airbases where American troops are stationed Tuesday night.
The Speaker, rather than express concern for American servicemembers or to present a united front to our openly hateful enemies, decided to attack Trump for what she called “needless provocations.”
“Closely monitoring the situation following bombings targeting U.S. troops in Iraq,” Pelosi tweeted at 6:31 p.m. “We must ensure the safety of our servicemembers, including ending needless provocations from the Administration and demanding that Iran cease its violence. America & the world cannot afford war.”

Pelosi was positively drug through the mud on Twitter almost instantly, not only because she had blamed Iran’s actions on the Trump administration, but because she did not, in fact, appear to be “monitoring the situation” quite as closely as she had indicated.
The Blaze explains:
At 5:40 p.m., nearly an hour before Pelosi tweeted her public statement, a reporter from Politico posted on Twitter, “In meeting tonight Speaker Pelosi was handed a note telling her VP Pence was on the phone. ‘Tell him I’ll call him back,’ she said according to sources in the room, nothing she had to go open the House for new session. Two minutes later, she was handed note about air base bombing.”

Between the time of that report and Pelosi’s statement, a reporter from Washingtonian magazine posted a snap at 6:14 p.m. of Pelosi attending the opening of a Washington, D.C., restaurant, appearing to be in good spirits.

Pelosi’s chief of staff told Politico that Pelosi returned the call to Vice President Mike Pence at 6:34 p.m., “and he briefed her on Iranian attack.”
What a fraud! But what else do you expect from a woman who just impeached a sitting president (or at least, she will have as soon as she surrenders the articles of impeachment to the Senate, it’s still unclear) even when the House committees’ witnesses during the impeachment inquiry all admitted they had no evidence against the president?
Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) tweeted that “Speaker Pelosi is an embarrassment and unfit for office,” in reaction to the photo of Pelosi’s festive evening.

Tuesday night’s attacks were in retaliation to President Donald Trump’s ordering of the elimination of Iranian general and terrorist mastermind, Qassem Soleimani.
This was also something which gave Pelosi cause to bash the Trump administration.
Following Soleimani’s death, Pelosi lashed out at the Trump administration, saying it had “conducted strikes in Iraq targeting high-level Iranian military officials and killing Iranian Quds Force Commander Qasem Soleimani without an AUMF against Iran” and “without the consultation of the Congress.”
