Top Democrat lawmakers, including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, knelt during a moment of silence in honor of George Floyd. This was before they unveiled a legislative package of police reforms Monday.
The Dem lawmakers who were wearing African kente cloth scarves, knelt in the Capitol Visitor Center for almost 9 minutes.
“We are here to honor George Floyd,” Pelosi said before the moment of silence began.
“To every one of us, it was excruciating. It seemed an unbearably long amount of time. It felt so painful to get even an inkling of how this man and so many black Americans have suffered for so long,” Schumer said before Monday’s moment of silence.
After almost nine minutes, Pelosi and the other lawmakers stood back up, though the Speaker needed the help of an aide to get back on her feet after which u can hear her breathing heavily. See video below.
Could this be because of her old age or probably cos of the shoes she was putting on. What’s your take on this, PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT IN THE COMMENT SECTION BELOW…
