A new campaign ad from President Trump’s team shows Nancy Pelosi boasting about her extensive ice cream collection, after Democrats blocked legislation to help Americans financially to the tune of $250 billion during the coronavirus shutdown.
The ad is titled “Let them eat ice cream” – Nancy Antoinette, a reference to the infamous “let them eat cake” jibe commonly attributed to French queen Marie Antoinette in 1789 upon learning that peasants had no bread.
Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale tweeted the video out Monday with the comment “Americans are losing their jobs since the virus rocked the economy. Nancy Pelosi blocks funding for people to keep getting paychecks. But she’s got a $24K fridge full of ice cream, so she’s cool.”
