Nancy Pelosi hit for thanking George Floyd ‘for sacrificing your life’

DM

Twitter users pounced on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Tuesday after she publicly thanked George Floyd “for sacrificing your life for justice.” “Thank you, George Floyd, for sacrificing your life for justice. For being there to call out to your mom — how heartbreaking was that — call out for your mom, ‘I can’t breathe,’” Pelosi (D-Calif.) said during a news conference with members of the Congressional Black Caucus. University of Illinois history professor and longtime black activist Barbara Ransby reacted with utter shock. “Did Pelosi just say ‘George Floyd, thank u 4 sacrificing your life for justice’?” she tweeted. “He did not SACRIFICE his life. His life was violently taken.” Others were equally appalled. “Thank you, George Floyd, for sacrificing your life for justice. For being there to call out to your mom — how heartbreaking was that — call out for your mom, ‘I can’t breathe,’” Pelosi said. “Thank you for sacrificing your life? Better to say, I’m sorry you had to sacrifice your life for justice. Sheesh,” tweeted @KimK5765. Another user, @Chris_Lee_Cal, tweeted, “Pretty sure he didn’t sign up to be murdered by a cop.”
