Trump campaign hits Pelosi with icy cold brutal ad over blocked funding

President Donald Trump’s campaign took a brutal shot at Democrat House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her apparent lack of concern for Americans.

It was gloves off for the Trump reelection campaign as it released a new video advertisement condemning Pelosi and her congratulations of Democrats for blocking replenishment of the Paycheck Protection Program. The video included a damning clip of the California Democrat from a recent interview where she showed off her $24,000 refrigerator.

“Nancy Pelosi blocks funding for people to keep getting paychecks. But she’s got a $24K fridge full of ice cream, so she’s cool,” the caption accompanying the video read.

The Democrat leader was even bestowed with a new nickname that hearkened back to Marie Antoinette’s famous “Let them eat cake” moment and quickly became an inspiration for internet memes.

As businesses struggle to stay afloat and Americans face daunting job loss numbers due to the economic shutdowns brought on by the coronavirus pandemic, Democrats have been playing games with an extension to the Paycheck Protection Program aimed at financially helping small businesses.

Getting even the coronavirus relief package passed was a challenge as Democrats fought over adding additional funding for their pet projects while the nation faced spiraling death tolls, stay-at-home orders and business closures. Republicans continue to press for a re-funding of the critical PPP which exhausted its funds last week, but Democrats keep up their haggling over details and additions.

The stinging video ad juxtaposed video clips highlighting Americans struggling with job losses and standing in line at food banks against the stunning excerpts of Pelosi’s video interview on ‘The Late Late Show with James Corden.”

Pelosi’s elitism was on full display as she showed off her posh freezer stocked with gourmet ice cream, oblivious to the bad optics of celebrating a stockpile of $13 a pint ice cream while Americans worry about feeding their families.

“This is chocolate, and then we have some other chocolate here. We just got it restocked with the ice cream,” Pelosi said in the video clip, pointing out the many ice cream flavors. “I don’t know what I would have done if ice cream were not invented. I just wonder.”

Democrats continue to block efforts that will help ease the economic effects of the pandemic, with Pelosi insisting that businesses will get their money in a “timely fashion.”

The Trump campaign video ad took off on social media where it has been retweeted over 11,000 times and garnered nearly 20,000 comments.

“Nancy Pelosi showing off her freezer, which costs MORE THAN MOST AMERICAN’S CARS, while you needlessly suffer under her endless obstruction, is the most disgusting thing you’ll see today,” conservative radio show host and former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino tweeted.

“This is a brutal ad. What an optics disaster that ice cream segment was for Speaker Pelosi,” The Daily Caller’s Peter Hasson tweeted.

Radio host Steve Cortes called it a “devastating ad highlighting the tone-deaf aloofness of Nancy “Marie Antoinette” Pelosi.”
