As Pelosi Downplays Iranian Protests, Trump Warns Iran Not to Kill Protestors

As Pelosi Downplays Iranian Protests, Trump Warns Iran Not to Kill Protestors

Pelosi: “But there are different reasons why people are in the street.”

Appearing on ABC’s This Week, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) downplayed the massive outbreak of protests taking place in Iran.  Asked directly if she supported the protesters, Pelosi waffled on about “different reasons why people are in the street.”

By contrast, President Trump took to Twitter with a stern warning, in Persian, for the Iranian government:  “DO NOT KILL YOUR PROTESTERS. Thousands have already been killed or imprisoned by you, and the World is watching. More importantly, the USA is watching.”

Watch Pelosi “whatever it is” away the Iranians protesting the Ayatollah’s regime.

Here’s the transcript from ABC News:

STEPHANOPOULOS: The question is how we get there. We’re seeing now demonstrations in the streets of Iran against the regime.

Do you support those protesters and would it be a good thing if they brought the regime down?

PELOSI: Well, the regime — the protesters are — are protesting, as I understand it, this brand of protesters, about the fact that that plane went down. And many students were on that plane. And these are largely students in the street.

I think the Iranians should have not had commercial flights going off when there was —

STEPHANOPOULOS: They’re calling out the regime for lying. They’re saying death to Khomeini as well.

PELOSI: Yes. Well, whatever it is.

But the fact is this, the — there were protesters in the streets before against the regime. After the taking out of Soleimani, there were protesters in the street, joined together, as you know, against us. That wasn’t good. Taking down this plane is a terrible, terrible tragedy. And they should be held accountable for letting commercial flights go at a time that was so, so dangerous.

But there are different reasons why people are in the street. Of course we would love to see the aspirations of the people of Iran realized with a better situation there, but escalating the situation — unless we’ve exhausted every other remedy —

President Trump provided a remedy, and the people of Iran are protesting in the streets, calling for the removal of the Ayatollah.

This guy would be a world power no matter what his job description.

    Yes, We the People, and then entire world, and this is what they are noting as they watch.

    “Nancy Pelosi’s terrible, horrible, no-good, very bad 2020 gets WORSE following her #IranProtests2020 comments on ‘This Week’

    You ever get the feeling we are watching the Democrat Party implode right before our eyes? Losing in 2016 was only the beginning … since then we’ve watched them push a fake Russian collusion hoax which ended in a humiliating and embarrassing Mueller report, plus continuously screeching to impeach the guy several times before finally following through with articles of impeachment that include zero actual crimes.

    Their impeachment was passed along party lines.

    And will be thrown out in the Senate.

    Nancy Pelosi sure seemed desperate to pretend otherwise on ‘This Week’ in her absolute train wreck of an interview.”

      Replying to @mohmd_mozafari

      Obama supported the Regime
      Trump supports the People
      That’s why #NancyPelosiFakeNews

      The Iranian people are in the streets demanding accountability from their government and many are praising America and Trump’s actions in removing their terroristic general who killed his own people. They are risking their very lives to get that message out to the world and Nancy has the gall to blow it off because it would mean giving Trump credit.

      No wonder some Iranians have taken to Twitter and formed a hashtag calling her out:

      Of course, Lefties are claiming this is only trending because … wait for it … RUSSIAN BOTS.

      You’d think after this didn’t work for them over several years they’d figure out this talking point is just stupid.

      And honestly, we’re seeing some very consistent anger from several Iranian accounts on this trend so yeah, we don’t buy the Russian bot excuse.

      It’s pretty brutal.

      Told ya’.

      Nice interview, Nancy.

      Trump says thanks.

At this point, what difference does it make?

Stephanopoulos and Pelosi, two little b!tches…

    OldProf2 in reply to rabid wombat. | January 12, 2020 at 8:09 pm

    Correct. And Stephanopoulos is the very definition of a biased news source. He was one of the three running Bill Clinton’s campaign, and he served as Clinton’s de facto press secretary. And ABC doesn’t see any reason that he shouldn’t be their new anchor.

    “Paid” little bitches. Follow their money: pelosi (through her husband and her son) has been skimming billions.

    As for stephanopolis: where else would this guy earn this kind of money barely working. The little bitch is the another Tokyo Rose.

    As for pelosi: she’s turning out to be quite the traitor, isn’t she. And merely for money.

Trump is making Pelosi look like the small-time hack that she is.

Is that a recent photo of Pelosi? She looks like it would take at least 48 dry hours for her to get down to CA BAC limit of 0.08%.

    No, that’s the typical look of a person who has overdosed on Botox most of her life in a desperate and vain attempt to simulate the look of youth.

She’d have excused Hitler. Until he invaded Stalin’s USSR.

Lucifer Morningstar | January 12, 2020 at 8:17 pm

Great Maker. That woman is disgusting. She won’t even condemn the mullah regime governing Iran for the atrocities they have perpetrated. Disgusting. Simply disgusting.

John Sullivan | January 12, 2020 at 9:15 pm

So according to the Madam Speaker, Iran’s error was not loosing missiles at U.S./Iraqi targets in an illegal act of war or targeting civilian aircraft with SAMs, but rather allowing commercial air traffic during it attacks. That makes a lot of sense.

Nancy Pelosi couldn’t care less about the country. With her, it’s all about personal power.

In his first tweet (this is 4th in a series) he says he heard from family from inside iran. See how he says Trump isn’t the problem according to them in this part.

4. Iranians are in the street calling for prosecutions, saying Soleimani is a murderer. Telling leadership of the Iranian government to resign and saying that Trump isn’t the problem, that the Iranian government is.

To say that these protesters are brave is an understatement

— Yashar Ali ? (@yashar) January 12, 2020

I think Pelosi and Warren have driven themselves insane in their respective quests for power. They are mad with hatred, and have declared America their foremost enemy. Neither of these creatures should ever be allowed control of anything above a Prius.

Democrats literally CANNOT support anything the President says no matter how bad the group or people he is attacking (MS13 anyone).

Therefore, because supporting the Presidents stance on the mooolahs does nothing politically for Democrats then the Iranian people become acceptable cannon fodder for the Democrats eternal impeachment drive.

I’m surprised she hasn’t already flown to Tehran to give them some hot tips on how to beat Orange Man Bad. If she needs directions, well, it’s not too far from Syria and she’s already figured out how to get there.

Of course flying around those parts is a bit risky at the moment. But I’ll chip in if there’s a GoFundMe for her entourage’s tickets.

The only thing Pelosi is working towards is removing Trump from office. Period.

Lunatic Pelosi claims the regime-sponsored protests against the killing of Soleimani united the Iranian people. She’s a regime-hack mouthing to the Clinton hack.

Seems that wasn’t the line in 2009 our regime backed their regime.
