Pelosi Calls George Floyd By The Wrong Name During Presser (Video)

(Gateway Pundit) – House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) on Friday called George Floyd by the wrong name during a press conference less than 24 hours after House Democrats passed police reform legislation.

80-year-old Pelosi referred to George Floyd, the black man who was killed by a Minnesota police officer, as “George Kirby.”

“I only will do that if you tell me that this legislation is worthy of George KIRBY’s name.” said Pelosi.

Either Pelosi hit the bottle early on Friday or age is catching up to her.

Flashback: Pelosi Gifts George Floyd’s Brother Folded American Flag Reserved Only For Fallen Veterans

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi bestowed an encased folded American flag to the brother of George Floyd, who was killed by a Minneapolis police officer last month.

“Congresswoman Pelosi presented Mr. Floyd an American flag flown over the U.S. Capitol – a symbol of our shared commitment to securing justice for George & all victims of police violence,” Pelosi’s official website stated.

Folded American flags are traditionally presented by the U.S. government to families of fallen veterans during military funerals.

The National Cemetery Administration of the Veterans Affairs Department states the specific criteria necessary to receive a folded American flag.

From the VA website:

A United States flag is provided, at no cost, to drape the casket or accompany the urn of a deceased Veteran who served honorably in the U. S. Armed Forces.

It is furnished to honor the memory of a Veteran’s military service to his or her country. VA will furnish a burial flag for memorialization for an other than dishonorably discharged:

1. Veteran who served during wartime

2. Veteran who died on active duty after May 27, 1941

3. Veteran who served after January 31, 1955

4. Peacetime Veteran who was discharged or released before June 27, 1950 after serving at least one enlistment, or for a disability incurred or aggravated in line of duty

5. Certain persons who served in the organized military forces of the Commonwealth of the Philippines while in service of the U.S. Armed Forces and who died on or after April 25, 1951

6. Certain former members of the Selected Reserves

Generally, the flag is given to the next-of-kin, as a keepsake, after its use during the funeral service. When there is no next-of-kin, VA will furnish the flag to a friend making request for it. For those VA national cemeteries with an Avenue of Flags, families of Veterans buried in these national cemeteries may donate the burial flags of their loved ones to be flown on patriotic holidays.

The family of a civilian drug addict who resisted arrest leading up to his death does not fall into the listed criteria of eligible recipients.

Many veterans on social media were insulted and outraged that Pelosi diminished the ultimate sacrifice of fallen soldiers by invoking a military tradition for the Democrats’ race-baiting pandering campaign.

It’s curious Pelosi would choose to gift the American flag to Floyd given Democrats and the left openly denigrate the flag, such as the NFL National Anthem kneeling, and simply attacking people who carry the flag.

  1. haha, 80 years old wow, bet they took her drivers license away but she can still tell Americans how to live, one real live sicko

  2. I’m sure the Floyd family would prefer basketball shoes over Ole Glory any day.
    Pelosi knows that but giving away taxpayers assets makes her a happy liberal POS !

  3. I really don’t know if I should feel sorry for this old lady who seems to be addled that I’m not sure if she even knows where she is some of the time. She didn’t ‘honor’ the undeserving, instead she dis-honored the flag treating it like she did insults those that paid the ultimate price as if it were trivial. She seems unable to comprehend true patriotism and comes off as childish and just plane silly.
