Leave the articles of impeachment, take the cannoli.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Wednesday likened President Trump’s request for Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to “do us a favor” to coded mob lingo by invoking the new Martin Scorsese flick “The Irishman.”
“Do me a favor?” said Pelosi (D-Calif.), altering Trump’s quote in closing her speech on the House floor, a short time before she signed two articles of impeachment against the president.
Then, taking even further liberty with the White House-released transcript of the call between Trump and Zelensky, Pelosi said, “Do you paint houses too? What is this? Do me a favor?”
In Scorsese’s three-plus-hour epic Al Pacino’s Jimmy Hoffa tells Robert De Niro’s mob killer-for-hire character, Frank Sheeran, “I heard you paint houses,” a coded reference to performing hits.
In the July 2019 phone call, Trump asked Zelesnky, “But do us a favor” by investigating former US vice president Joe Biden and his son, Hunter, over their dealings in the Eastern European nation.
The ask has been alleged by Democrats to be a quid pro quo, because a $391 million US aid package to Ukraine hung in the balance at the time. Trump has denied there was any such string attached.
I guess Schitt taught her to do that. You know, ignore facts and lie indiscriminately to try and support a failed position. Did they say “Valamir Plootin” in that movie, too?
Was this code for please no suicide for me.
Whos ring was she kissing?
Then handing out the collectors pens, I hope tthey send one to Don so he can mount it for his second term oval office decor’.
@kitt: Yeah, notice what a “serious and solemn” event it was?
@Deplorable Me: If she had a longer name they could sell them as fund raiser trinkets
@kitt: Those were Democrat pens; none of them worked and she had to keep trying a different one.
@kitt: @Deplorable Me:
Here’s a great read for you;
Kurt Schlichter should stop being so sweet about it and tell us what he really thinks.
@retire05: If only every liberal would read that. They all think they’re being cute and open to suspect their country is lying, dishonest and corrupt every time a) someone other than a liberal is in charge and b) the country does ANYTHING.
