Pelosi Accused Of ‘Day Drinking Again’ — Claims Inflation Bill Will Appease ‘Mother Earth’

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi was roasted on social media on Saturday for bizarre comments about the recently-passed Inflation Reduction Act, in which she stated that it would appease “Mother Earth.”

The legislation, which is set to allocate over $350 billion towards implementing policies focused on addressing climate change and ‘environmental justice’ related concerns, passed in the House of Representatives on Friday as is expected to be signed by President Joe Biden sometime this week after he returns from vacationing for free at the home of a Democrat donor in South Carolina.

Pelosi’s bizarre comment came while she was speaking after the House passed the bill. While slurring her words, the California Democrat appeared to suggest that appeasing “Mother Earth” was a priority in getting the legislation passed.

“How can they vote against the planet?” Pelosi asked, referring to the Republicans, all of whom voted against the sweeping legislation — which also provided funding to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) to add some 87,000 new IRS agents, despite promises that there would be “no new audits” for Americans whose income fell below a certain amount.

“Mother Earth — Mother Earth gets angry from time to time,” the House Speaker continued. “And this legislation will help us to address all of that.”

Critics immediately took to Twitter to roast Pelosi for her odd comments.

“So literally faith-based legislation,” replied Aaron Walker.

WMAL’s Julie Gunlock responded by suggesting that the Speaker of the House was “day drinking again.”

“Instead of ‘Mother Earth’s anger. Perhaps ‘good Catholics’ Pelosi and Biden should both be a good bit more worried about the wrath of ‘Father God’ … ?” responded Twitter user @VRWCTexan.

“For the love of dad. This is what regression looks like,” said actor Mark Pellegrino.

“We are back to primitive animism here. The ship sank because the ocean was in a bad mood. Thunderstruck because the clouds were having a violent disagreement with each other. Ancient people, however, weren’t dumb enough to think ‘laws’ could change the course of nature,” asserted Dinesh D’Souza, documentary filmmaker and author.

“Wouldn’t some flowers and a box of chocolates be more effective and less expensive?” asked Twitter user @MaryForbes14, calling the whole thing a #ClimateScam.

“#Marxists are only happy when they are wasting other people’s money. Look at Raskin, having a ‘moment,’” radio and podcast host Andrew Wilkow tweeted.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) condemned the legislation in a lengthy speech just before it passed in the House.

“Today the majority jams through another spending spree. I believe the largest tone-deaf bill we’ve seen in this chamber in 230 years,” the California Republican said. “Passing this bill today means more expensive bills for Americans tomorrow.”
