Trey Gowdy unloads on Pelosi: She’s ‘despicable’ for holding up COVID-19 relief

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi has taken quite a bit of heat over the past month for playing what appears to be political games with regard to her refusal to compromise with Republicans on a COVID-19 relief bill.

According to Fox News, former South Carolina lawmaker Trey Gowdy hammered Pelosi on her unwillingness to work across the aisle and then magically becoming flexible on the issue because former Vice President Joe Biden is now the president-elect. Gowdy said Pelosi’s Biden excuse is one of the “most despicable things” he’s heard from a House leader.

At the crux of Gowdy’s issue with Pelosi is the fact that Pelosi refused to get behind any COVID-19 relief bill that came in under a $2 trillion price tag. A bill of that magnitude included a number of funding opportunities for issues that aren’t directly related to the pandemic.

Last week, Pelosi’s view on the matter shifted, significantly, as she voiced her support for a new, $908 billion bill with bipartisan support, claiming that because a COVID-19 vaccine is on the way to market and citing that “we have a new president,” Pelosi is suddenly ready to play ball.

“That’s one of the dumbest and also most despicable things I have ever heard an elected leader say,” Gowdy said during a Fox News appearance. “That because Joe Biden won it’s OK to do it … When you are suffering when you’re in economic self-defense mode, you don’t care about politics.”

Gowdy argued that if former Speakers Paul Ryan or John Boehner would have played the same game with such a monumentally important bill, the media would have had an absolute field day. For some reason, when Pelosi does it, it flies under the mainstream media radar.

“It really is so outrageous. It’s hard to get me upset but what she just said makes me madder than hell,” Gowdy said.

According to Fox News, Pelosi’s statement came on the heels of taking fire last week from House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, who slammed the Speaker for bringing two unrelated bills to the floor while Americans struggle.

“Democrats have focused on cats and cannabis, but not on COVID,” McCarthy said. “You’d think after a humiliating defeat in the ballot box this year … that Democrats would get the picture that Americans are demanding some action on these issues.”
