Nancy & Omar Caught “Wining & Dining” On Tax Dollars, Doesn’t End Well

Nancy Pelosi and Ilhan Omar were just caught “wining and dining” with other fat-cat Democrats in Venice, Italy. Americans wanted to know why is the Speaker and the Minnesota Congresswoman in Italy? Well, it quickly came out they are staying at a 5-star Venice hotel on our taxpayer dime, and that’s when it didn’t end well for the Democratic duo. You don’t want to miss this.

Nancy Pelosi is infamous for taking luxury vacations on taxpayers funds and this latest stunt might have stayed under the radar if the Speaker hadn’t weighed in on President Donald Trump’s feud with Rep. Elijah Cummings.

However, Nancy just couldn’t help herself. 

@RepCummings is a champion in the Congress and the country for civil rights and economic justice, a beloved leader in Baltimore, and deeply valued colleague. We all reject racist attacks against him and support his steadfast leadership,” tweeted the 80-year-old Speaker.

Pelosi’s tweet was tagged “Venice Italy” as Emily Miller noted: “Speaker Pelosi weighs in on poverty in West Baltimore …. from a 5 star, rooftop restaurant in Venice, Italy.”

Immediately, another tweet with a picture of Pelosi and Rep. Ilhan Omar “wining and dining” with other Democratic fat-cats found it’s way into the news cycle. According to reports, Pelosi, Omar, and their Democrat cohorts were dining on Friday at Cipriani’s Harry’s Bar, a well-known hotspot for the rich and famous.

“Here’s Nancy Pelosi, the Squad and Elijah Cummings (just out of the picture) having an extremely expensive lunch at the renowned Harry Cipriani in Venice, right near their 5 star hotel, while their constituents are living in squalor. Inequality??” tweeted Mark Simone adding the infamous picture:

Cipriani’s was just walking distance from the Democrats 5-Star luxury hotel called Hotel Danieli where regular rooms start at about $850.00 dollars a night. On Saturday night, Pelosi was caught at the rooftop restaurant of Hotel Danieli.

And yes, taxpayers are footing the bill thanks to some creative scheduling. You see, when Pelosi wants to go on vacation to Italy and bring her good friends like Omar, she creatively makes this part of her “official” trip to Ghana.

“House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced on Friday that she would lead a U.S. congressional delegation to Ghana and visit the U.S. Army Africa headquarters in Italy next week,” the Washington Examiner reports.

The Speaker is infamous for making use of the CODEL, the Congressional delegation trips, to fly on our dime in military planes to great places like this trip to Venice and Africa with a lot of the Congressional Black Caucus, including Ilhan Omar.

Don’t you just love how Pelosi sneaks in this trip to Venice, Italy by saying she’s going to visit the “U.S. Army Africa” who are stationed near there? The U.S. Army Africa headquarters are in Vicenza, Italy which is about a 55-minute drive from Venice.

This allows Pelosi to make this “Ghana trip,” with a stop in Italy, taxpayer-funded.

Americans aren’t too happy this is how the Speaker and her new bestie Omar are using our hard-earned money. 

“The queens dine out as their people starve, but they’re conducting conversations about how to trick their constituents into believing they’ll receive a handout if they just keep voting for the same party that created their poverty and despair to begin with,” tweeted Irredeemable Republican.

“I’m so proud of Ilhan Omar…New headpieces and lovely clothes every day…new luxury penthouse….dining and staying @ the best hotels in Venice….not bad for a refugee from Somalia. I’m tempted to run for Congress,” tweeted Barbara Cusano.

“We told Omar to go fix her home country’s problem and then come back. We did NOT tell her to go spend taxpayer money, partying in places most Americans will NEVER be able to afford to go,” tweeted Conservative in Marin.

“WTF are they doing in Italy in the first place? Why are dems always using taxpayer dollars to sponsor unwarranted trips? We don’t see republicans doing this. Or am I wrong?” tweeted Craig Polikoff.

This also explains Ilhan Omar just dumping her first husband for the second time. Omar is now divorcing Ahmed Hirsi, the man who is reportedly the father of her three kids. The Daily Mail uncovered Omar’s new digs living in a luxury penthouse for just under $3,000 dollars a month.

These types of reports are why Americans are fed up with the Democratic Party. Nancy Pelosi’s trip to Ghana makes no sense, and the secret side trip to Venice is outlandish. Wasting our hard-earned taxes to go off to Europe and stay at 5-star hotels is disgraceful.

President Donald Trump doesn’t take his salary as president. Neither does anyone in the Trump family who is working for the administration, and the Democrats wonder why we see right through them? Nancy and Ilhan can’t fathom paying their own way. They may have gamed the system on this trip, but this will cost them greatly when President Trump is re-elected.
