House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has sunk to a new low.
During a photo-op with the family of newly elected Rep. Mayra Flores (R-TX), Pelosi gave her daughter a little forearm shiver during photos.
What is even worse, when Pelosi was called out on the shove, her office tried to justify it.
Touch My Kid…
In the video, it is pretty clear Flores’ daughter was a little too close to Pelosi for the Speaker’s comfort.
Pelosi ends up giving her an elbow to push her away.
After the video went viral, Pelosi’s spokesperson tried to paint the outrage as ridiculous…
It’s sad to see “news outlets” that know better misrepresent the Speaker’s effort to ensure Rep. Flores’ daughters wouldn’t be hidden behind her in all of the photos of such an important moment for their family. https://t.co/Dm0oXtwF7V pic.twitter.com/KDyI4MfaOj

Now, if that were actually the case, one would think that Pelosi could have been a bit more delicate with the child.
Rather than a quick elbow, perhaps leaning over and telling her she should move over just a bit if she wants to be in the picture.
Pelosi could have had a great moment here, but instead chose to look like a thug with a child.
Clearly, Rep. Flores was not buying Pelosi’s excuse, stating, “I am so proud of my strong, beautiful daughter for not allowing this to faze her.
“She continued to smile and pose for the picture like a Queen.”
Actor James Woods added, “I love this princess stood her ground, while Nancy showed her true colors.”
