Watch: Pelosi’s Response To Iranians Protesting Against Their Government Is A Disgrace

Democrats are so desperate that they are not only lamenting the death of a terrorist to attack President Trump, they are now dismissing and dissing on pro-democratic protests in Iran. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi’s reaction to the pro-democracy demonstrations in reaction to the Iranian regime lying about shooting down the Ukrainian airliner was such a disgrace.

On Sunday, Nancy Pelosi appeared on ABC’s “This Week” and was asked by host George Stephanopoulos if she supports the most recent protests in Iran. Stephanopoulos was referring to the protests that broke out after Iran admitted that they accidentally shot down a Ukranian airliner earlier int he week Iran lied about shooting down the airliner.

Below is a transcript of the back and forth:

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 —

STEPHANOPOULOS: Which we haven’t?

PELOSI: Well, we don’t know that. We don’t know that. And if the first — the first action to be taken on the threat of — there — there are — a lot of bad actors who are doing bad things and threatening bad things to us. We know that. Iran being one of them. And it being a — it’s proxies doing bad things to our interests throughout the world. But how do we deal with that in a way that calms rather than escalates?

Stephanopoulos did not follow up on the question and he obviously flustered Pelosi. It is disgraceful that for political reasons Pelosi will not condemn Iran for shooting down the airliner, lying about shooting down the airline and will not support those that want an end to the current Iranian regime.
