High and mighty Fancy Nancy once again her arrogance by her actions. “Rules are for thee, not for me,” says her Royal Highness, the Queen of Hearts. It will be interesting to see how she blames this particular blatant act of hypocrisy on Donald Trump.
Republicans are promising a “huge push” to pressure House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., to pay the fine she imposed for bypassing magnetometers installed after the Capitol riot to enter the House floor. Rep. Rodney Davis, R-Ill., detailed to Fox News his firsthand account of watching the speaker enter the House floor from a forbidden entrance on Thursday. “She opened the session on the floor, she came through what is known as the Speaker’s lobby,” Davis said. “We are all told, one Republican was fined for doing this just yesterday, that you cannot walk through those entrances unless you are disabled.” Pelosi’s office has not yet denied the account, despite requests for comment. Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, was slapped with a $5,000 fine Friday for bypassing metal detectors when he said he’d left the House floor to use the bathroom. GOP REP. GOHMERT RIPS DEMS OVER METAL DETECTOR FINE Davis called Pelosi’s actions part of a “typical good for thee, not for me type of attitude that comes out of San Francisco.” “Pay the fine Speaker Pelosi,” Rep. Dan Crenshaw, R-Texas, wrote on Twitter. Crenshaw told Fox News Pelosi should pay the fine because her action was “against her own rules.” “Now is this a smart rule? No. Is this a rule that makes sense? No of course not. But that’s not the point, the point is they’re her rules. She’s literally confiscated property in the form of money, which we think is unconstitutional, but in any case they’re doing it,” the Texas Republican continued. “She won’t abide by the rules herself so we’re going to make a huge push for her to actually have to pay that fine,” Crenshaw said. Davis called on Capitol Police to report the violation to the acting Sergeant-at-Arms, Timothy Blodgett, so he could issue the fine. Blodgett said Friday Capitol Police had not reported the incident.Calls for Pelosi to pay fine she imposed after bypassing metal detector intensify | Fox News
