Pelosi Bungled George Floyd’s Name as ‘George Kirby’

On Friday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) bungled the name of George Floyd.

Floyd, a Minnesota black man, died while being arrested by police.

The arrest was caught on video and went viral showing Floyd was pinned down by a white police officer’s knee to his neck.

Pelosi made the goof during a press briefing while referring to the House Democrat police reform bill, the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act, saying the bill was deserving of “George Kirby’s name.”

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer also bungled the name of George Floyd.

Fox News reports:

It isn’t the only Floyd-related misspeak by Democrats. On Wednesday, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer referred to “Floyd Taylor” — accidentally putting together the names of Floyd and Breonna Taylor, who was killed by police earlier this year in Kentucky. He immediately clarified the remark.

The House passed the bill along party lines Thursday evening with the support of three Republicans.

On Wednesday, a modest version of police reform legislation authored by Senator Tim Scott (R-SC) was blocked by Democrats for debate.

Critics pushed back on the Democrat’s sweeping police reform bill which included banning chokeholds.

Pelosi was highly critical about the Senate Republicans.

Earlier this week, Pelosi accused Senate Republicans of “trying to get away with murder, actually — the murder of George Floyd,” during an interview on CBS News Radio.

Following her extreme statement, Pelosi refused to apologize for saying it.

Conveniently, Pelosi is not mentioning the fact that Minneapolis and the state of Minnesota are run by Democrats.

This was pointed out on Twitter.

Pelosi was trying to make sure George Floyd’s name would not be forgotten but she fumbled the handoff in her press briefing.

The bottom line is Democrats are exploiting Floyd’s tragic death to score political points and also avoid accountability for failed leaders in Democrat-run cities including Minneapolis.
