Although many within the political circus of Washington, D.C. thought the lifelong Democrat and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi would soon be retiring, it appears the 81-year-old believes she still has something to give as she announced her bid for reelection. Posting an outlandish video of herself sitting in front of a fake California backdrop, Pelosi was all smiles as she announced her plans to remain in office. But while Pelosi might be thrilled, others were left to wonder why she made this decision, given the outlook of the upcoming 2022 midterm elections. That answer might never come to the surface, but recently, Fox News’ Jesse Watters revealed Pelosi has made so much money while in Congress that he deemed her the “Wolf of Washington.”
On Wednesday’s taping of “Jesse Watters Primetime,” the host focused not only on Pelosi running for reelection but how she has spent her years in office amassing assets totaling over $315 million. The Speaker has come under fire for politicians using their position to have an advantage when it comes to trading stocks. Pelosi even agreed to “severe penalties for delay in reporting on STOCK Act.” She still added, “But, to give a blanket attitude of ‘we can’t do this, and we can’t do that because we can’t be trusted’ – I just don’t buy into that.”
Either way, in the video above, Watters ripped into Pelosi for appearing to only care about herself and family when it comes to her position in D.C. “Maybe Nancy could invest more in her district instead of her portfolio. If Nancy dumped a few shares, she could help make San Francisco less of a dump. A little goes a long way, just a few crumbs. Instead, she’ll continue to be the Warren Buffett of Washington. That is until you, the American people, step up, and you have.”
Watters also harped on Pelosi’s reelection video and how she claimed to care about the “children.” “But whose children, exactly? Her own children? Paul Pelosi Jr. is 52 years old, and let’s just say he and Hunter Biden would get along really well. He’s been tied up in a ton of shady business that federal agents are digging into. Nancy isn’t running to help the children; she’s running to help herself. And she’s made a career doing just that. So while Nancy slow-walks antitrust legislation to break up Big Tech, her family [is] taking advantage and laughing all the way to the bank.”
