After House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) signed the articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump for abuse of power and obstruction of Congress and sent them to the Senate, pro-Trump media figures lashed out at her over her choice of clothing and made bizarre comments about the commemorative pens she used and then handed out. One Fox News anchor even allowed a Republican senator to liken Pelosi to a sorority girl without any objection.
Several Fox News hosts complained that Pelosi wore pink
Fox & Friends co-host Steve Doocy: “She was wearing pink. And there was giggling, and there was some laughter as well.”
Fox host Laura Ingraham mocked Pelosi’s appearance: “Somber in The Power Pink Suit.”
Ingraham also mocked Pelosi for her outfit on air.
Fox Business anchor Dagen McDowell complained Pelosi “seems to be celebrating a little too much” and was “wearing Easter pink.”
A Fox Business anchor likened Pelosi’s traditional commemorative pens to bullets
Fox Business anchor Maria Bartiromo wrote in a now-deleted tweet: “These are the pens Nancy pelosi used to sign the articles & she gave them out to colleagues. Wow they look like bullet cases.”
Bartiromo also claimed on air that the pens “look like bullet cases” and incorrectly stated that “the word ‘united’ was spelt wrong” on the pens. In fact, the misspelled word had appeared on the commemorative pens senators used to sign the oath of impeachment when President Bill Clinton was impeached.
