(RepublicanPress.org) – Hypocrisy, thy name is Nancy Pelosi. So sayeth new reports detailing her hypocritical spending of thousands of dollars on private jets while demanding American industries spend millions to lower emissions.
On Monday, February 7, media outlets exploded with the news that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has spent around half a million dollars on private jets since late 2020 despite her call for Americans to reduce emissions.
Pelosi has consistently referred to climate change as an existential threat to the United States, saying the nation has a moral obligation to address global warming. She has even gone as far as saying fighting climate change is “a religious thing” for her, adding that the nation has a “moral obligation to be good stewards” of God’s creation — Planet Earth.

However, recent Federal Election Commission filings from the House Speaker’s campaign indicated it paid more than $437K and roughly $65K to two private aviation companies for air travel for throughout 2021.
Private jets have faced their fair share of criticism for their negative impact on the environment. Yet, Pelosi and other leading politicians regularly use them while jet-setting across the country.
What do you think? Does Pelosi have a legitimate need to scurry about using private jets, or is this situation just another instance of a leftist politician not following their own rules?
