Republican Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney on Tuesday night blasted Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi for attending a fancy dinner party as Iran struck multiple bases housing U.S. troops in Iraq.
Pelosi said she was “closely monitoring the situation,” but was then reportedly spotted at a dinner party in Washington D.C. less than an hour later. This caused Cheney to send out a tweet saying “Speaker Pelosi is an embarrassment and unfit for office.”
“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,” Pelosi tweeted right before attending a party in D.C.
This all comes as multiple airbases housing U.S. troops in Iraq are under missile attack from Iran, according to multiple reports.
