I have heard Pelosi say a lot of nasty and crazy things in the past, but this one really takes the cake.
After General Mark Milley, the Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman, stated that the Guard was not held back during the January 6 riot, Pelosi went off the rails.
Pelosi insisted that one of the most powerful generals in our military simply does not have the “full picture.”
Not Held Back
Milley was defending the response at the Capitol when he made his statement.
The General stated, “There was no attempt to delay the deployment of the National Guard, I mean that’s just false.”
Pelosi strongly disagreed, stating, “I have the highest regard for Gen. Milley, but he doesn’t know the full picture if he presenting the characterization that he just presented.
“The fact is that they could’ve been there very much sooner and it would’ve been much less destruction.”

Now, had Trump made Pelosi’s statement and General Milley came out to debunk it, Twitter would have a warning label slapped all over that tweet.
Instead, Pelosi gets to undermine General Milley to push a narrative she is creating.
