Dan Crenshaw rips Nancy Pelosi for refusing to reopen House: ‘Cowardice is the only way to describe it’

By  | 

Rep. Dan Crenshaw said on Thursday that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is showing “cowardice” by continuing to keep Congress out of session during the coronavirus pandemic.

“Cowardice is the only way to describe that,” the Texas Republican lawmaker told “Fox & Friends.”

Crenshaw, who lost his right eye during combat in Afghanistan, said that the pushback against Pelosi is beyond “accountability.”

“Let me remind everybody, if we got paid hourly in Congress, you bet Nancy Pelosi would be there. You bet they’d be there.”

Crenshaw’s comments came after House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., told “The Ingraham Angle” Tuesday that it is wrong for Democrats to effectively keep the House of Representatives out of session for the near future.

“I think the American people deserve leaders who will work day in and day out for them,” said McCarthy, who explained that he had sent Pelosi a letter suggesting safe ways to keep Congress open, including holding sessions in a larger auditorium and only calling back certain committees and certain members.

“The subcommittees could be in there [and] have the rooms to themselves, get the work done, and then bring the rest of Congress back to vote on those [bills],” McCarthy said. “I don’t understand. The Democrats have no plan.”

Crenshaw said that members of Congress going back to work is a matter of showing leadership.

“This is about leading on the front lines along with the American people who are also on the front lines: nurses, doctors, people still working in grocery stores, still working supply chains, people trying to grow food and raise cattle and watching their food production plummet. Listen, people are having real problems and people are trying; they’re risk-mitigating, they’re being smart but they’re still engaging in life. Why can’t Congress do the same?”

Crenshaw said the Senate is going back to work and House members could exert the same mitigation efforts other Americans are doing, but Pelosi so far refuses.

    Nancy Pukelosi and Adam Schitt are the 2 most DESPICABLE scum on the face of this earth. The turmoil they’ve caused the great people of OUR Nation is unforgivable. So many people will not be able to rebound from their actions. I wish I got paid to do nothing like they do, everybody should wish that. You’re just what Mr Wonderful says “You’re a cockroach and you need to be squashed. You’re dead to us.” I hope the people who voted for you realize how badly you’ve harmed them and vote you’re sickening ASSES out.

    Piglosi has funneled millions of contracts to her husbands business. Hourly paid would be a joke to her. Problem with people like her millions is not enough, Politicians like the power they have over the people. Plus let’s me honest and job you can go in almost broke and come out with 10 times your salary Example Marco Rubio he was close to bankrupt and lock at financial now.
