Pence rips Pelosi for describing $1,000 as ‘crumbs’

February 1, 2018

WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W.Va. — Vice President Mike Pence ripped House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Wednesday for dismissing employee bonuses resulting from the GOP tax cut as mere “crumbs.”

“I heard Nancy Pelosi, before the tax cut was voted on, predicted economic armageddon,” Pence told House and Senate Republicans on the first day of the annual GOP policy retreat at The Greenbrier resort.

“It’s just amazing to me that after this tax cut passes, 3 million Americans get another $1,000 in their pockets in many cases, and she actually described that as ‘crumbs,’” added Pence, who formerly represented Indiana in the House and governor’s office.

“Let me just remind you all that I come from the JoS A. Bank wing of the West Wing,” Pence joked, referencing the discount clothier. “Seriously, people stop me and say, ‘Is that a new suit?’ and I say, ‘Two for one.’”

“If you’re going to say that $1,000 is crumbs, you live in a different world than I’m living in,” the vice president continued. “If I had another $1,000 in my pocket at the end of the year, I have a term for that: Christmas. … Or maybe a little something extra for Mrs. Pence.”

    To this Botox junkie millionaire, a mere $1000 might seem like “crumbs”. But I bet to the people who she purports to represent, the “poor and downtrodden”, that $1000 might just make their day a little brighter. During the Christmas season, one of the local DC stations would go out and give $100 to people on the street, and then had them give $100 to someone else. These people were all pleased to get the money and more pleased to be able to make some one else’s day. Realizing that to her a gift of $1000 would be considered an insult (how dare you ONLY give $1000!) but to “regular folks” and unexpected $1000 could mean getting just that much further out of debt, could mean taking the family to a ball game or just a night out with out having to worry about how to pay for it. I realize that going out to diner is no big deal to some one who takes a bunch of her co-consprators out to diner after shutting down the government in a childish snit, but to others it means a relaxing evening.
