Done Playing Nice: GOP Rep. Cheney Says Pelosi Is ‘Unfit For Office’

Republican Rep. Liz Cheney did not mince her
words this week after it was reported House Speaker Nancy Pelosi attended a party fundraiser
and rejected a call from Vice President Mike Pence on Tuesday night when Iran launched
a series of missile attacks on military bases housing U.S. troops. Cheney took to Twitter to call Pelosi an”embarrassment”
and “unfit for office” for attending a fancy dinner party around the time the California
Democrat said she was “closely monitoring the situation” in Iraq. Iran fired roughly 15 ballistic missiles into
Iraq, with at least 11 hitting Ain al-Asad Air Base and Erbil military base Tuesday night. A U.S. military spokesman for Central Command
said four of the missiles missed their targets and there were no causalities. Following reports of the attack, Pelosi tweeted,
“Closely monitoring the situation following bombings targeting U.S. troops in Iraq. We must ensure the safety of our servicemembers,
including ending needless provocations from the Administration and demanding that Iran
cease its violence.” Pelosi claims she wanted to be briefed on
our military action, but apparently she is not concerned when we are being attacked. It was also reported that Pelosi refused a
phone call from Vice President Pence on the situation: Cheney, chair of the House Republican Conference,
was not afraid to call Pelosi out for her behavior. “Speaker Pelosi is an embarrassment and
unfit for office,” she tweeted. Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps
said Tuesday’s missile attacks were in retaliation for the airstrike that killed Quds Force commander
Qassem Soleimani last week. Soleimani and his Quds Force were “responsible
for the deaths of hundreds of American and coalition service members and the wounding
of thousands more,” according to the Department of Defense. Soleimani and Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, the deputy
commander of Iran-backed militias known as the Popular Mobilization Forces, were killed,
along with eight others, in the drone strike at Baghdad International Airport. But more importantly, this is another scathing
example of how Pelosi got caught in a major lie and was obviously not concerned about
America’s troops being attacked. She was too busy rubbing shoulders with elites
in D.C.
