Pelosi Booed from the Moment She Took the Stage, Audience Only Stops After She Leaves


House Speaker Nancy Pelosi didn’t get quite the reception she likely anticipated from the crowd at the Global Citizen music festival on Saturday night. Especially considering the concert took place at Central Park in deep blue New York City.

The Speaker received a round of boos, and a few cheers, during remarks about the recently passed Inflation Reduction Act, legislation that even climate czar John Kerry admits is a climate bill that has nothing to do with inflation.

The New York Post reported the booing began from the moment Pelosi appeared onstage and continued throughout her brief talk.

As the “boos and cheers continued, several hecklers” were “heard yelling ‘letโ€™s go!’ apparently looking for the eveningโ€™s entertainment to resume,” according to the Post.

Pelosi told the audience, โ€œAs Speaker of the House, I am here to thank you for your dazzling advocacy, entrepreneurial thinking, and determination as global citizens.

โ€œItโ€™s thanks to your help that the United States recently enacted historic climate legislation, which will be a game changer,โ€ she said. “It will slash carbon pollution by 40 percent by 2030, it will give a historic, an historic $370 billion to fight the climate crisis.โ€

She noted that two of her grandchildren were there with her and she had promised to keep her remarks brief so the music could continue.

Her husband, Paul Pelosi, also attended the event. He may be best known for his June DUI arrest, and his uncanny knack for making money in the stock market.

Pelosi, you may recall, was arrested on misdemeanor driving under the influence charges in May after causing a 2-car crash in Napa Valley, California.

It’s unclear if the crowd’s negative reception was due to their eagerness to get back to the show, Pelosi’s politics, or both.

Either way, it was not a great moment for the Speaker.

And for it to happen in the liberal bastion of Manhattan was the biggest surprise of all.
