In reacting to the guilty verdict of former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi gave an odd speech with the Congressional Black Caucus in which she “thanked” George Floyd for “sacrificing” his life.
“Thank you, George Floyd—for sacrificing your life for justice,” Pelosi said.
“How heartbreaking was that? To call out to your mom — how, how heartbreaking. ‘I can’t breath’ he said to his mom.”

Pelosi continued, “But Because of you and the millions who marched against injustice, your name will be synonymous with police reform and a shift in this country.”
The Congressional Black Caucus surrounded Pelosi at her podium as she blurted out her nonsensical words.
Many have criticized Pelosi’s statements, and even more have been confused, as it seems the House Speaker is has thanked George Floyd for dying.
