Pelosi beams with pride as she shares her grandson’s birthday wish — to look Hispanic

Pelosi beams with pride as she shares her grandson’s birthday wish — to look Hispanic

The only thing more disturbing than Nancy Pelosi’s almost certainly fabricated story of how her grandson said he wished he had the same coloration as a Latin American friend is the possibility that it is true.

The rapidly aging former speaker shared this bit of treacle during her eight-hour non-filibuster on DACA on the House floor yesterday:

I’m reminded of my own grandson. He had a very close friend whose name is Antonio. He’s from Guatemala and he has beautiful tan skin and brown eyes and the rest. And this was such a proud day for me because [when] my grandson blew out the candles on his cake, they said, ‘Did you make a wish?’ He said, ‘Yes, I made a wish.’ They said, ‘Well, what is your wish?’ He said, ‘I wish I had brown skin and brown eyes like Antonio.’

It’s so beautiful — so beautiful. The beauty is in the mix.

And the rest!

How sad to imagine a child so brainwashed into believing his own ethnicity is evil that he wishes he belonged to another. Sadder still is a politician whose own world view has become distorted to the point where she believes a story of self-loathing is a thing of beauty.

Pelosi also declared during her rant that “we have the first president who’s anti-immigrant, who hates immigrants.” It’s an interesting observation to make about a man who is married to an immigrant — the first immigrant first lady.
