Lifestyles of the rich and infamous: Pelosi and pals stop off for R & R on their way to Africa

All work and no play. In case you don’t have a copy of her daily itinerary, Nancy Pelosi is in Africa with a delegation of black Congress members. All are in Ghana “for high-level talks and a commemoration of the 400-year-old slave trade from Africa to the New World,” according to Voice of America.

Pelosi’s delegation includes House Majority Whip James Clyburn, Congressional Black Caucus chairwoman Karen Bass, House representatives Barbara Lee, civil rights leader John Lewis, and — for some reason — Ilhan Omar.

The trip from D.C. to Ghana nonstop takes more than ten hours, so Pelosi decided to break the trip up with a stopover … in Venice. There she and her crew enjoyed a little lunch at Cipriani, a spinoff of Harry’s Bar, which Ernest Hemingway frequented once upon a time. Cipriani is expensive — so much so that the prices do not appear on the online menu. (If you have to ask, you can’t afford it.)

Since the trip was on the taxpayer’s dime, you might figure the group would economize on other meals. And you’d be wrong.

Terrazza Danieli does publish its prices online. First course run between 30 and 38 Euros ($33.45 to $42.37), mains 64 to 68 Euros ($71.36 to $73.59). There’s also a beef rib “tomahawk” steak for two, which dresses in at a cool 160 Euros ($178.39).

Aren’t Democrats the ones who care so profoundly about the poor American working class, who is forced to settle for “crumbs” from the Trump tax break?
