Gotta hand it to British comedian Russell Brand – He sure sees right through some of the highest profile Democrats, from straight across the pond.
And that was especially evident in one of his latest videos, where he skewered Nancy and Paul Pelosi for brazenly obvious insider trading.
“Are members of Congress, Nancy Pelosi, becoming rich because they are lucky or is it because they have access to insider trading information that they then give to their husbands who trade on the stock market?” Brand queried sardonically at the start of the video.
It’s clearly obvious that Pelosi has become quite wealthy from stock market advantages, which is precisely why Brand begins with a rather humorous, and obvious, question.
“Today we’re talking about Nancy Pelosi and the stock market,” Brand drawled, “she has been confronted with the grim truth that possibly some people believe that Nancy Pelosi’s trading deals, or the Pelosi family’s trading deals, are somewhat benefiting from Nancy Pelosi’s insider information.”
It is indeed a grim truth, and one that Democrat lawmakers don’t seem to mind at all.
After all, they’d rather focus on so-called “White privilege” than “politician privilege,” especially when politicians have an unusual advantage in the stock markets.
Even worse, the Democrats then try to deny blatantly obvious reality, which is about as effective as their recent denial of the recession was.
“Now, if you see a connection between Nancy Pelosi debating about whether [to] give billions of dollars of support to the chip industry, and Paul Pelosi investing in the chip industry, you’re obviously some sort of conspiracy theorist,” Brand drawled, poking fun at the fact that Democrats certainly can’t handle their own completely hypocritical behavior thrown right back at them.
So they play the standard game of deny, deny, deny, which Brand also humorously broke down.
Specifically, he mimicked Pelosi’s recent public appearance, where she rather ineffectually dodged questions regarding her husband’s insider trading.
“If ever you’re asked a difficult question in public and you don’t answer it, there’s a few simple tips. First, ask them to repeat the question then sort of crane forward all weirdly,” Brand intoned, painting a clear image of Pelosi trying to deflect from the truth.
“Then say, ‘no,’ as if you’re sort of offended by that, even though perhaps all day at work you’ve debating whether or not to give billions of dollars to the chip industry, your husband has just invested in the chip industry,” Brand continued.
Yet, but good old Pelosi will make it seem like it’s just a coincidence her husband happened to buy 20,000 shares of NVIDIA.
Probably went out drunk joyriding thinking about how much richer he would get afterwards.
Though Pelosi will continue to deny, deny, deny, just as Brand brilliantly encapsulates.
“And to make absolutely sure that people know you disapprove of the question, just give that microphone, just give it a little bobbing down,” Brand remarked humorously, painting a clear image of Pelosi as a grim schoolteacher.
“Then leave, just leave altogether, walk right out of there, don’t stop walking till you’re at home and you can enjoy some of the money you’ve made from the chip industry,” Brand chirped.
One can certainly envision Pelosi strolling into her palatial kitchen and eating her $30 a pint ice cream with a silver spoon, the little people completely forgotten.
