Watch: Nancy Pelosi says Dem police bill is ‘worthy of George Kirby’s name’

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is attempting to gain political favor along with Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) by blocking black Senator Tim Scott’s (R-SC) police reform bill and then blaming the lack of progress on Republicans.

Pelosi accused Senate Republicans of trying to “get away with the murder of George Floyd” earlier this week, but when she made a speech about House Democrats’ counter-proposal on Friday, she couldn’t even remember Floyd’s name.

During her Friday floor speech hyping up the Democrat bill, she crowed that the proposal is worthy of “George Kirby’s name.” George Kirby was a black comedian and singer who died in 1995.

Pelosi told reporters that Floyd’s brother had requested that the House police reform bill be named in his honor. She continued:

And I said ‘I’ll recommend that to the Judiciary Committee and to the Congressional Black Caucus who have shaped the bill, but I only will do that if you tell me that this legislation is worthy of George Kirby’s name,’ and he said it is, and so we’re very proud, we’re very proud to carry that.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) also couldn’t be bothered to use the correct name when speaking about the slain Minneapolis man earlier this week. Schumer went a different route than Pelosi, referring to Floyd as “Floyd Taylor,” conflating his name with Breonna Taylor’s, another Black victim of a recent police shootout.

Pelosi and Schumer’s slips are indicative of the entire Democrat party’s attitude about George Floyd’s death.

Even though Senate Republicans have proposed a bill that makes meaningful police reforms without completely hamstringing law enforcement agencies in response to Floyd’s death, Pelosi and Schumer have explicitly rejected what should be a strong bipartisan solution.

They know that if they can block Republicans from passing police reform, Democrats will be able to use the issue to campaign with in November. It’s a starkly political move, and sadly, a move the media is allowing them to get away with.

  1. The democrats are just pandering to BLM they don’t even know the name of the guy that they are supposedly honoring. At least Tim Scott’s bill was taking care of some of the things that BLM were wanting, but the democrats wouldn’t even consider talking about and amending the bill. They are the worst bunch of democrats ever. They have not done one good thing since they have the house. They play the race card at every turn, it’s because they have no new ideas or issues for the country.

    1. How many times do I have to tell you they are not Dems they are Communists. If you don’t believe me just ask them to drop their draws. they have a hammer and cycle on one cheek and a yellow star on the other.
      The only thing the BLM should get is the business end of an M1 Abams.

  2. Possibly nervous nancy was thinking about the Kirbys that were on the show in the 50’s, on COSMO where they were ghosts on that show. This POS person has to be replaced immediately. The trio of pelosi, schummer, schiff and let’s not forget the fugly maxine and the main threat to our civilized nation

  3. When exactly have either of those two ever told the truth. If Pelosi, in particular, says it then you
    know it is not true. She is giving Adam Schiff a run for his money as the biggest and most proficient
    liar in Congress. Both are habitual liars. She and her comrade Democrats are a detriment to the welfare
    of our Nation. They are totally corrupt and are behind the chaos and rioting in our nation today.
    Not one of these sewer rats should be allowed to sit in Congress ever again.

  4. Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer are racists and so are the members of the black caucus . They don’t care for the black population of America… these are the remnants from the days of Civil Unrest of the 60s. Chuck Schumer is a Jew hater…. Nancy Pelosi is a politician….. they will stir up the rebellion and the end game ….. POWER….. they have made a career in politics…. gotten rich and done NOTHING for Blacks or whites or yellows and browns!!!! You cannot send them anywhere, no one wants them…. the only place is HELL…. there they will be welcome with open arms as they have been dancing to the tune of their master, Satan… no point in having investigations and wasting our money…. we know they are the author of all the turmoil we are facing….because the we know it and the world knows it!!! The DEMONRATS are THE racists…. Americans have no problem living in harmony with each other and wanting the best for one another… it is a melting pot of ethnicity and cultures and religion…. we have learned to co-exist in peace. I think most Americans look at men and women as just that first and then qualify them with the “color code” wish the politicians would do the same….
    Segregation ended, so let us unite and build a better America for tomorrow!!!! We can do it…. a leader we elected could not see all his promises come to fruition… we need to give him a second term to finish the work …. we need to re-elect President Trump. So let us focus on that and not Pelosi, Schumer and their party who are using BLM and the unfortunate circumstances surrounding George Floyd’s death. He is not and will never be a martyr…. he was resisting arrest and got killed in a most brutal way….. we all agree to the brutal killing. His family doesn’t seem to care except for the publicity and fame…. and it is time we learned as Americans, that there is a price to pay for our crimes, our wrong doings. The person killing George Floyd will get the punishment he deserves! So let us move forward and not be in the rut we are in!!!! Usually, in war… the two parties eventually sit down and discuss the situation …. they call a truce….. what is it that BLM wants, for what are they destroying the country…. they all need to work instead if sitting on their backsides and getting money flowing in…… what we need to do is pray the Lord Jesus Christ will deliver our nation from this spiralling downward fall…….

  5. History shows us that most of the blame for the first Civil War can be placed at the feet of the Democrats. It is beginning to look like the Democrats will be to blame for the coming Second Civil War. I believe that the reason why are called bias and bigotry -, not racism but political ideology bias and bigotry.

  6. Looks Like time for old Nancy and Chuck to give it up. Can’t remember a mans name they are so proud of. Go home retire rest time has marched on and your time in this job should be done. I have heard you referring President Trump For the deaths of the Corona Virus , So wrong . He did not kill them . However you sure have done your part in seeing Thousands of babies killed .I think your the only killer here Nancy. Ask God Forgiveness before it is to late.

  7. Pelosi & Schumer have to go. You are pathetic. This country is falling apart. Statues being torn down. Do you think this is right. All of a sudden Nancy getting rid of pictures in the white house. How long have you been there?
    Sen. Tim Scott I think you are great. How come you rose above this Education & work. People like the two idiots above are keeping people down. Always making excuses. If you have an ability you can rise above it. Take Biden with you. They are just looking for you vote & it will be the same 10 years from now.

  8. Pelosi do not care about George Kirby, George Taylor or George Floyd. They think that people are stupid as Obama though. We do not pay attention to what is going on with the Washington government, they think. Because of the Democrat Party wickedness exposed by President Trump we became aware of how our government has been run for many years. Pelosi is getting worse and the Democrats under her control are following her steps. She is not for any black, white, Asian or even native American. She just wants power. Black Lives Matter as become an extension to Pelosi’s agenda. Nothing interests her more than dethrone President Trump. So family of George Floyd don’t be fool by Pelosi, she could care less about the loss of your brother. She just wants a pad on her shoulder, she is not sincere at all. RIP- GEORGE FLOYD.

  9. When is it going to stop! When will it become about all people of the U.S.? The Democrats care for no #1, them selves. The people need to start looking at this party and stop voting for them. Russia isn’t a good country to live in. Check out the information on Russia. You can’t have the American Dream if we begin to go that way. And that’s not true what you see on the movies.

  10. Those two are the biggest losers in our country. They could care less about George Floyd. They are out to get their way. They think their ways and believes are the only way! Well it is time to compromise and get the job done ! You work for the American people ! You are supposed to be doing what we want! Instead you follow your own agenda! It’s time to wake up Americans and see what the democrats are trying to do to our country! It’s time for us to fight back and get rid of the democrats, That are trying to tare our country apart! I say Go Trump ! Trump 2020 He can get the job done!

  11. Pelosi and Schumer could care less about these people. They are just a means to attack the Republicans and Conservatives. Problems is, they are attackinng the DNC and Obama/Biden policies of old. Trump brought down Black and other minority unemployment to the lowest on record as well as White unemployment. Trump has done more for minorities in three years against DNC opposition than the DNC has done in the last 70 years!

  12. Yes let it remember the good name of Floyd. He is not only a multiple notorious criminal but let’s remember him as a good man

  13. PelosIl needs to see one of her communist doctors and have him check her for her true beliefs about our country

  14. God safe us from Pelosi and Schumer, they are pathetic. This country will never recover if they and Bidden are in charge, in no time our country will be a banana Republic, and China will definitely make a move to dominate the world. Learn to speak Mandarin you will need it.

  15. If Pelosi and her”crew” could just be taken out of our congress just think of the way our country would be? It would be even better then before, greater is a better word for it!!! Pelosi was born corrupt. Her father and grandfather were nasty SOB’s and she is continuing where they left off. Every bone in her body is evil and will remain that way. She and her flunkies from the squad to Schumer, Nadler, Schiff, Maxine Waters, Omar, Talib, Pressley, and so many others need to be removed and replaced with people who love and respect our country and who love and respect the people of this country. We need to have leaders who will be patriots of the USA not try to take our country down and make it a One World Order. Soros needs to find another place to take and destroy not this country. Hope he expires real soon.

  16. AGAIN CONGRATS TO THE DEMS FOR ELECTING SUCH FINE MENTAL IDIOTS!!!!!!!!! NANCY, CHUCKIE AND BIDEN MUST HAVE ALL DRANK THE SAME KOOL AID??????? THEIR MENTAL STATUS SHOWS IT……….I’LL BET THE DEMS JUST CAN’T WAIT TO VOTE FOR THEM AGAIN…..SO THEY CAN KEEP THE CIRCUS GOING???????? I AM GOING TO WRITE TO THE PRESIDENT AND ASK IF HE CAN COME UP WITH A SPECIAL BILL TO HELP THE MENTAL DEMS??????????? I KNOW I CAN SAY WHAT I WOULD DO FOR THEM…….THERE IS NOT ENOUGH SPACE!!!!!!!!!!! LOL LOL. SAD!!

  17. To stop this madness insist that term limits be put on the ballet this November! This would solve a lot of the problems from these “career politicians!

  18. This BS will only stop after piglosi & Schumer are voted Out of Office!!! Vote Straight GOP (Except Rinos) November 2020!!! These two are Ruining our Constitution and Country!!!

  19. George floyd was a cocaine addict and a criminal black man who is not a good person and we the people are tired of the bs going on in our country black lives do matter but every life matters and the black people are killing themselves in every big city in the entire country and abortion is killing them also

  20. OK PEOPLE , I HOPE MY VOICE ON FACEBOOK WENT THROUGH. BUT SITTING HERE AND THINKING AND IT CAME CLEAR. WHAT SCHUMER AND EVIL PELSOI HAS DONE ALONG WITH BLM AND THE ANTIFA WHO SEEM TO BE STARTING UP AGAIN. THAT THEY HAVE DONE IS TRYING TO NOW OVER TAKE OUR GOV. AND NOW WITH FIGHTING THE POLICE AND ALMOST SLAPPING OUR BLACK SENATOR IN AND CAME UP WITH THEIR OWN PLAN FOR THE POLICE . THE DEMS AND SOROS WITH THE REST HAVE PUSHED ALL THE BUTTONS TO TAKE OVER AND REMOVE OUR PRES. I THINK THAT IS WHAT THEY HAVE PLANNED TO COMPLETE THEIR COUP. NOW WE HAVE TO GET STRONGER AND HAVE THE MILITARY TO PROTECT THE PRESIDENT. AND ARREST AS MANY OF THE TRAITORS AS POSSIBLE. I GET THE FEELING WHEN THEY WERE DOWN IN THE BASEMENT THEY HAD A ROAD PLAN FOR STAGE 1,2, 3, AND 4 TO KEEP US FROM FIGURING OUT WHAT THEY WERE UP TOO. GOD IF I’M RIGHT WE NEED TO MOVE FAST. TO BLOCK THEM AT EVERY ANGLE. ITIS JUST A VERY BAD FEELING I’M GETTING.. IS IT A REVOLUTION FOR THE 4TH OF JULY????? IS THAT WHEN THEY ARE GOING TO COMPLETE THE ATTACK.

  21. Piglosi and Upchuckie are just 2 examples of corruption without a clue what day comes after Monday. These 2 have done ZERO to help America. Pelosi is full blown alcoholic (2 half gallons a day) Schumer is a duck with ears and is fully aware his parents had no kids that lived. Now we have to worry about these 2 getting hung up and blasted with hot water like 2 street dogs in heat. Man these will be ugly kids

  22. Observation: is there ANY thing that Pelosi and Schumer ever disagree on? They’re always together and in agreement on every thing – like spouses who may not testify against each other or 2 peas in a pod? Is it really just politics that 2 people should agree with each other at all times? Question is: who is the leader or the follower in this phenomenal couple?
