Pelosi's fridge of posh $12 ice cream blamed for hampering Dems in disastrous House election

A PROGRESSIVE group has blammed Nancy Pelosi's sweet tooth as the reason why there was no "blue wave" in the election

Pelosi appeared on James Corden’s Late Late Show on April 14 and showed off her impressive collection of ice cream flavors, which Progressive Democrats are now blaming the party's under performance at the election.

The Justice Democrats and Sunrise Movement published a memo on Wednesday attacking the speaker's "two sub-zero freezers full of ice cream."

“When Democratic leaders make unforced errors like showing off two sub-zero freezers full of ice cream on national television or cozy up with Wall Street executives and corporate lobbyists while Trump tells voters we are the party of the swamp, it is not surprising that we lost," the memo read.

“The economy was voters’ top concern in this election. We need a new generation of leadership grounded in a multiracial, working class experience and background."

Pelosi's high-end fridge costs $24,000 and was packed with Jeni’s ice cream, with a pint priced at $12 each.  

The progressive group's jab at Pelosi comes amid reports some Democrats want to oust her as House Speaker following a disappointing election for Congressional seats.

Two House Dems told The Hill that they and other centrists plan to challenge Pelosi and replace her with House Democratic Caucus Chairman Hakeem Jeffries for Speaker in the next Congress.

“Pelosi needed to hammer Trump but instead she chose to let him slide,” an ex-senior Democratic aide said. “Last night should have been a bloodbath for Republicans.”

“It’s time for Democrats to elevate a new generation of leaderships in both the House and Senate,” agreed another Dem lawmaker.

During a Fox News interview in April, White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany also mocked Pelosi for her fancy ice cream fridge.

“You have Nancy Pelosi who’s standing in front of her expensive ice cream refrigerator on late television, while you have President Trump in the White House… working tirelessly for the American people, she said.

“(These Democrats) need to get back to Washington. Get out from in front of that ice cream freezer, Nancy Pelosi, come here and work with this president.”

Pelosi Late Late Show appearance was also turned into an ad by Donald Trump’s reelection campaign.

The ad shows the House Speaker showing off her freezer full of ice cream with headlines that Americans were waiting “hours” at food banks.

Pelosi responded to Trump’s mock by telling MSNBC, “He makes a big fuss about my having ice cream in my freezer. That’s his latest today…. I have ice cream in my freezer.

“I guess that’s better than having Lysol in somebody’s lungs, as he is suggesting,” Pelosi said.

Pelosi’s comments referenced President Trump’s suggestion that disinfectants could be injected into a person in order to kill the coronavirus.
