They were on the bus to the military plane when they got the news and when it was announced. So now she wants you to believe that they went to make commercial flights after the news was already out there and then cancelled because of the news? Uh huh, no.
When Donald Trump informed Nancy Pelosi in a letter yesterday that her planned CODEL “trip to Brussels, Egypt, and Afghanistan has been postponed,” he told her that she should still feel free to “fly commercial.”
Well, wouldn’t you know it? According to her deputy chief of staff Drew Hammill, Pelosi had every intention of flying commercial — and she would have, too, if it hadn’t been for that meddling Trump administration!
And if there’s one thing we know about Nancy Pelosi, it’s that she flies commercial every chance she gets. Because after all, what better way to bond with The People?
She just couldn’t swing it this time. You know, grave threats and all.
Here she is, lying her head off.
NEW: Nancy Pelosi on cancelled CODEL: "We had the prerogative to travel commercially, and we made plans to do that, until the administration then leaked that we were traveling commercially." https://t.co/NEBf8njLDw pic.twitter.com/zZm71BOFf7
