‘Tell Him I’ll Call Him Back’: Pelosi Too Busy To Take VP Pence’s Call To Inform Her Of Iranian Missile Attack On Americans

(Gateway Pundit) – House Speaker Nancy Pelosi demands to be in control all the time. In fact, after the House voted to approve two articles of impeachment against President Trump, she refused to hand them over to the Senate, demanding to play a role even after the House’s job was completely done.

So Vice President Mike Pence called Pelosi, the third-ranking member of government, on Tuesday night to inform her that Iran was launching missiles on U.S. forces in Iraq.

“Tell him I’ll call him back,” Pelosi said, according to a Politico reporter.

“In meeting tonight Speaker Pelosi was handed a note telling her VP Pence was on the phone,” Heather Caygle wrote on Twitter. “‘Tell him I’ll call him back,’ she said according to sources in room, noting she had to go open the House for new session.

“Two minutes later, she was handed note about air base bombing,” Caygle wrote.

After President Trump ordered the U.S. military to take out Iran’s secretive Quds Force commander, Qassim Suleimani, Pelosi said he should have first asked Congress for permission.

“We cannot put the lives of American servicemembers, diplomats and others further at risk by engaging in provocative and disproportionate actions,” Pelosi said on Thursday night. “Tonight’s airstrike risks provoking further dangerous escalation of violence. America –- and the world -– cannot afford to have tensions escalate to the point of no return.”

“The Administration has conducted tonight’s strikes in Iraq targeting high-level Iranian military officials and killing Iranian Quds Force Commander Qasem Soleimani without an Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF) against Iran. Further, this action was taken without the consultation of the Congress.”

Washington Examiner writer Byron York noted the disconnect after Pelosi refused Pence’s call.

“Speaker Pelosi doesn’t like it when the administration doesn’t give her foreign policy updates. So VP Pence calls with word of Iran missile attack. ‘Tell him I’ll call him back,’ Pelosi says,” he wrote on Twitter.

Later on Tuesday, Pelosi wrote on Twitter: “Closely monitoring the situation following bombings targeting U.S. troops in Iraq. We must ensure the safety of our servicemembers, including ending needless provocations from the Administration and demanding that Iran cease its violence. America & world cannot afford war.”

Shortly before her tweet was posted, it was reported Pelosi was busy at a restaurant opening.

  1. She is a complete idiot!!! It is a shame and disgrace that this woman has moved into the leadership position that she has.
    Where is her leadership while the five younger idiots are disgracing our country and servicemen????? They laugh and snicker while someone is talking about bombing out troops …. AND THEN…. has the hutzpah to claim PTSD as her defense ??????? Where is the speaker and any other Democrat for that matter on condemning them and demanding an apology !!!! They disdain this country !!!!! If she comes from districts that support this crap …. then expel her and send her ass packing !!!! Do the same to the next if they are so stupid as to send another !!!! If that does not work …. perhaps the democrats need focus on redrawing THAT DISTRICT !!!!!! What a farce !!!! I’m w Trump …. send her back !!!!!!

  2. Typical of her. All she wants is power, and god help us if she ever has that much power. If we thought Obama rolled over and cowered everytime he was confronted, hell she would just give up the keys to the country. It is time for term limits and get these career swamp rats out of there, it is out of control.

  3. Pelosi is a disgusting old hag who can’t give it up. Her only hope to hang on to her title and, probably, dreams of succeeding to the presidency, is to cowtow to the disgusting squad.

  4. How can you tell those dysfunctional idiots ANYTHING???
    1- They cannot be trusted.
    2- They cannot keep their mouth shut!
    3- They dont have the necessary “security clearance” for important information regarding National Security.
    4-They “pay” terrorists, apologize, and beg them not to hurt us!
    5- Their decades old track record speaks for itself!

    (see what can be done by a “non-politician” in such a short time, that truly loves our great country, and believes America should come first with no need to apologize for ANYTHING??)

  5. There is nothing nice to say about the she-devil. What is realistic and frightening is that she is third in line for President.

  6. This narcissistic Elitist female is an absolute fraud, an empty suit, & heinously corrupt in trying to overthrow this President, then the utter gaul to make demands on the Senate & McConnell to do the same insane UNCONSTITUTIONAL frame up BS they did in the House – UNPRECEDENTED IN US HISTORY!

  7. Nancy Pelosi is a prime example as to why women weren’t given the right to vote when this great country was founded, furthermore another example is that it was her type that caused the fall of the Roman Empire!!

  8. She said she’d call him back. What’s the big deal? Maybe she had more important matters. Besides, no one I know thinks the VP terribly important anyway.
