Nancy Pelosi Zings Putin Over NYT Op-Ed: I Hope Equality Applies To ‘Gays And Lesbians In Russia’

SNAP

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said on Thursday that she thought it was “great” that Vladimir Putin included a line in his controversial New York Times op-ed about all people being created equal under God.

But also gave Putin a verbal slap on in the face when she added that “I hope it applies to gays and lesbians in Russia as well,” during a Capitol Hill press conference.

To double down on the statement Pelosi (or her staff) took the comment to Twitter for all the world to see.

Great sound bite and you have to give it to her for actually saying something.
