Nancy Pelosi Booed At NYC Festival
[ZeroHedge] 'Doesn't Bode Well For Dems Ahead Of Mid-Terms'
Good. Here’s hoping they can’t cheat nearly enough.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi made a surprise appearance at a Saturday night music festival in New York City, called the "Global Citizen music festival". She was introduced on stage by Priyanka Chopra Jonas, wife of American singer and actor Nick Jonas, to speak about climate change and carbon pollution.

But instead of the climactic "surprise" celebratory moment that organizers were hoping for, Pelosi's presence triggered loud boos from the sizeable audience, as multiple videos from the event show...

"As speaker of the house, I am here to thank you for your dazzling advocacy, entrepreneurial thinking, and determination as global citizens," she told the crowd, as quoted in NY Post.

While some occasional cheers could be heard, by and large she was booed and heckled so fiercely throughout the remarks that at times she struggled to speak over the noise. The reaction of the likely largely young Democrat crowd doesn't look good for Dems ahead of the mid-term elections in November: "Crowd's reaction to Pelosi at music festival doesn't bode well for Dems," Fox observed on its homepage.

The Daily Mail has speculated the negative reaction likely stems from recognition of of the spectacle of yet another celebrity politician seen backstage with A-listers and who flies around in private jets lecturing young people about saving the planet:

Nancy Pelosi, 82, is savagely booed during appearance at NYC's Global Citizen music festival in Central Park - after schmoozing backstage with A-listers and drunk-driver husband Paul.

Pelosi made a surprise appearance at a festival in NYC and the crowd booed
[Hot Air] Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi made what is being described by some media outlets as a surprise appearance at NYC’s Global Citizen music festival on Saturday. She was introduced by actress Priyanka Chopra Jonas, a co-host of the event.

Who can blame the audience for booing an 82-year-old politician rambling on about climate change and carbon pollution when they were there to hear music? She was harshing their buzz while they just wanted the Jonas Brothers and other bands to play. Priyanka Chopra Jonas, by the way, is married to one of the Jonas bros.

"As speaker of the house, I am here to thank you for your dazzling advocacy, entrepreneurial thinking, and determination as global citizens," she told the crowd, according to the New York Post.

"It’s thanks to your help that the United States recently enacted historic climate legislation, which will be a game changer," she added, being drowned out by the crowd. "It will slash carbon pollution by 40% by 2030, it will give a historic, an historic $370 billion to fight the climate crisis."

The California representative can also be heard calling for "better water and air for our children" and "better-paying jobs and lower energy bills for their parents."

The crowd continued to react loudly to her comments.

Pelosi went on to mention that two of her grandchildren were in the audience. She joked that she promised them she wouldn’t speak for too long, as everyone was there for the music. Mostly the crowd seemed confused as to why she was there and speaking at all.

There were boos and there were cheers for Pelosi. The days of polite applause for political leaders at big public events is over. With America so divided, there is certainly no hope of unity this close to an election. The midterm elections in November are only forty-something days away. Pelosi may have thought these were her people but such sweeping generalizations are what gets Democrats into trouble. Not everyone who does volunteer work and is concerned about hot topics like the environment and poverty is a Democrat voter.

Pelosi’s husband, Paul, was also there and the two were reportedly chatting with celebrities before she went on stage to speak. It is one of the first appearances of the husband and wife together since his conviction and sentencing for driving under the influence in California.

It would appear that Pelosi is milking her last weeks in Congress for all they are worth. She is about to be replaced as Speaker so next year she will not likely be invited to come on stage and brag about how many millions of taxpayer dollars she has committed to climate change. But, Pelosi might be the ambassador to Italy. Word is she is looking to do that when she leaves Congress. Pelosi spoke to the Global Citizen festival in 2016 in New York.
