During her 8-hour stint on the House floor Wednesday morning, Nancy Pelosi praised DACA recipients and their parents for their "courage" and "bravery" and admitted to something fairly bizarre. As she read through profiles of "dreamers" and their parents she shared a peculiar story regarding her grandson.
He's of English, Irish "whatever, whatever' descent said Pelosi who is of Italian descent herself and has a special relationship with a Hispanic boy from Guatemala.
Here's what she said:
I'm reminded of my own grandson. He is Irish, English, whatever, whatever, and Italian-American, he is a mix. But he looks more the other [Italian] side of the family, shall we say.And when he had his sixth birthday... he had a very close friend whose name is Antonio, he's from Guatemala. And he has beautiful tan skinned, beautiful brown eyes, and this was a proud day for me, because when my grandson blew out the candles on his cake, they said did you make a wish?
He said yes, he made a wish. What is your wish? I wish I had brown skin and brown eyes like Antonio.
On Thursday's episode of "Pat Gray Unleashed," Pat railed into Democrats for praising those who enter the country illegally and wondered why progressives continue to place "dreamers" on pedestals.
