Pelosi dragged after gushing fan-girl invite to Biden; pushes State of the Union address closer to midterms

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi sparked visceral reactions with her gushing letter inviting President Joe Biden to deliver his State of the Union address.

The stomach-churning tome read like a young girl’s fan letter to an idol and social media users dragged the California Democrat over its adoring praise.

“Thank you for your bold vision and patriotic leadership which have guided America out of crisis and into an era of great progress, as we not only recover from the pandemic but Build Back Better!” she began the letter sent Friday.

She continued her superlative-laden praise of Biden, gushing over the past “historic” year “with the life-saving American Rescue Plan, once-in-a-century Bipartisan Infrastructure Law and, soon, the truly transformational Build Back Better Act!”

“In that spirit, I am writing to invite you to address a Joint Session of Congress on Tuesday, March 1, to share your vision of the State of the Union,” Pelosi wrote, setting a date that is the latest ever for the annual speech.

Biden’s first address to a joint session of Congress was held on April 28 last year, much later than his predecessors. Pelosi infamously tore up her copy of then-President Donald Trump’s speech in February 2020 in a petulant and immature attempt to make a statement.

“Thank you for considering this invitation to speak to the Congress and Country,” Pelosi concluded, setting off a wave of social media mockery.

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre confirmed to reporters while aboard Air Force One Friday that the president had accepted the speaker’s invitation.

Reaction was swift and pointed.
