Former Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer on Thursday took goal at “hypocrites” within the media who she says have branded Home Speaker Nancy Pelosi a hero for pointing her finger at President Trump — regardless of calling Brewer a racist for doing one thing much like former President Obama.
“The information media hails @SpeakerPelosi as a hero for pointing her finger at @POTUS @realDonaldTrump however after I stood as much as @BarackObama I used to be vilified as impolite and racist,” she tweeted.
Trump on Wednesday tweeted an image of the contentious White Home assembly on Syria, exhibiting Pelosi, D-Calif., pointing her finger at him as they argued back-and-forth. Democrats ultimately stormed out of the assembly, accusing Trump of getting referred to as the speaker a “third-rate politician.”
“Nervous Nancy’s unhinged meltdown!” he tweeted with the photograph.
However Pelosi quickly made it her Twitter banner, and it was rapidly hailed by some within the media as a win for the speaker.
“Trump’s Nancy Pelosi ‘meltdown’ tweet was the right self-own. Right here’s why,” declared one NBC Information opinion piece.
“The White Home’s photograph clearly exhibits that the final man standing in that room is, in reality, Nancy Pelosi,” it gushed.
Brewer contrasted it with the media’s therapy of her when she “stood as much as [Obama.]” She was referring to a tense 2012 tarmac assembly between her and the then-president. In accordance with Brewer, the president had objected to her portrayal of him as dismissive and patronizing in her e book, “Scorpions for Breakfast.”
The cameras caught her waving her finger at Obama, one thing for which she acquired a flood of criticism. A New York Occasions op-ed, as an illustration, accused Brewer of treating the president “as if he had been some errand boy and never the commander-in-chief.”
The Washington Free Beacon on Friday revealed a video referred to as “A Story of Two Fingers,” contrasting the therapy of Brewer and Pelosi, exhibiting anchors and commentating praising the “iconic” photograph of Pelosi “standing in a room stuffed with males,” earlier than contrasting that with media voices complaining about Brewer’s “extremely disrespectful” therapy of Obama.
“I used to be vilified as impolite and racist. Such Hypocrites!” Brewer stated.
