Outgoing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) compared Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky’s address to Congress to when former Prime Minister of the United Kingdom Winston Churchill’s 1941 address asked the United States to go to war with Europe.
Pelosi said in her letter to lawmakers that she has “great pride and solemnity” to welcome Zelensky on Wednesday to Congress, where he will address both chambers in a Joint Meeting of Congress.
The outgoing speaker, leaving a “personal note,” compared Zelensky’s congressional visit to Churchill’s historic wartime address in the Senate Chamber when he spoke before an informal meeting of Congress the day after Christmas in 1941:

Gag me with a spoon. When is that old windbag going to step down?
We really need to prohibit wealth sovereigns from government.
They’re just rubbing our noses in it anymore.
Nancy must be heavily invested in military weapons manufacturing firms..
WOW! If I didn’t know better I’d swear the DC establishment wants to start WW3 with Russia.
These people are absolutely insane.
I guess that means China will attack Pearl Harbor.
These demented old dementia patients need to be put out to pasture
When will that fat, ignorant gay man marrying slut STFU?
Maybe Nancy can hook Zelensky’s wife up with some fancy freezers full of designer ice cream. We all know Churchill’s wife went on 40,000 dollar spending sprees.
Except this time we’re on the side of the Nazis.
And it stops right there.
How much is she getting in kickbacks?
When Churchill spoke to Congress we were already in World War II. He was not exactly asking us to join the fight against the Axis powers. We had already declared war on Japan, Germany declared war on us , and we in turn had declared war on Germany.
But historical details aside what is her broader point? Is she trying to say that the analogy would be that we would get directly involved with Ukraine directly fighting Russia? What js her analogy?
I object to Pelosi and Churchill in the same sentence.
What’s her freeper name?
She got it mixed up with Churchill’s “Give us the tools” speech he gave to the crew of the HMS Exeter in February 1941.
