Scores of Americans were outraged after seeing a picture of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) presenting an American flag to the family of George Floyd as though he had been killed fighting for the country.
The photo, which was seen posted on various social media sites, was confirmed as genuine by BizPac Review after locating it as part of a collection involving the family of Floyd on Pelosis official Twitter feed.
Philonise Floyds heart-wrenching testimony to @HouseJudiciary left its mark on us all. May this flag, which flew over the Capitol on the day of his brothers murder, serve as a symbol of our shared commitment to securing justice for George & all victims of police violence, she wrote on her post containing the photo.

Send this to Pelosi!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I don’t think George Floyd was from California. Shouldn’t something like this happen with your own representative?
Actually, a non-veteran can have a folded flag at his funeral, however, the VA would not provide it for free, as they would for a veteran.
Look at all the pomp and circumstance given to George Floyd and the memorials and such, then compare all to this:
Now tell us what you think.....
Maybe they were patriotic pornos, like Apocalypse Ho, Full Meatal Jack-It, Saving Ryan's Privates, Holes Of Glory, Sergeant Pork, They Were Expandable, Das Booty, and of course, The Big Red One.
Thanks for the info. The one point during my dad’s funeral when my mom burst into open tears was when the commander of the local VFW honor guard handed her his flag. And he just maintained radio gear in the Air Force for a hitch.
Maybe the family doesn’t an American flag
Please love me she says as she hands it over. Don’t spread the word anymore about us funding Antifa and BLM kk? /wink
American Flag to a crack head career criminal who resisted arrest and dropped a bag of it while trying to keep from being taken into custody?
I truly believe we are now living in a bizzaro world!
Pandering no doubt but Congress gives out these flown flags like candy to connected people. Donors, friends, whatevers. It’s really not a big deal.
She could have thrown in same extra impeachment pens she has laying around.
But wait wait. I’m told that the systemic racism of the country killed him. Tone deaf.
I have a flag that flew over the Colorado Capitol.
The only thing I have an issue with is Nanzy's obvious pandering to use this family's grief for political purposes.
A cousin died in Vietnam after a couple of tours.
Who knew he could have been honored by the speaker of 5he house if instead of joining the Marines he had just gotten high on heroin and fought with police while being arrested for a Felony.
All my cousin got was a 21 gun salute and his flag handed over to the family by a Sargent.
But that is more ho orable than a Traitor.
Traitorous swamp sow.
"Floyd was a multiple felon who once held a pregnant black woman at gunpoint. He broke into her home with a gang of men and pointed a gun at her pregnant stomach. He terrorized the women in his community. He sired and abandoned multiple children, playing no part in their support or upbringing, failing one of the most basic tests of decency for a human being. He was a drug-addict and sometime drug-dealer, a swindler who preyed upon his honest and hard-working neighbors. "
Pelosi is a good example of one of our Leftist community leaders hard at work.
As the widow of a career Army officer, I was handed the flag at my husband’s funeral-a special moment for me-and just hearing about this pisses me off more than I can say-to see the family of someone who never served and was a meth head and criminal presented with that flag. What happened to that man should not have-but it doesn’t merit a flag presentation, no matter how he died-that bitch Pelosi has insulted all veterans and their family members, too...
As inane as this is, it’s common practice for Congressitters to gift to people flags flown over the capital.
Usually, though, it goes to donor$. Same difference here, as Pelosi is working it. (Love her mask regimine, though).
