Video footage shows House Speaker Nancy Pelosi struggling to get to her feet after kneeing in subservience to the Black Lives Matter agenda with other House Democrats on Monday.
In the video, the House Democrats can be wearing African-stye kente cloth wraps around their necks for some reason, in a move that has been criticized as tone-deaf and cringe by all sides of the political spectrum.
All of the Democrats knelt except for the markedly obese Jerry Nadler, 72, who seemed to have nearly as much difficulty standing upright as Pelosi later did getting getting to her feet.
Pelosi, 80, can be seen in the footage making a gasping sound, before shooting out an arm to summon the help of an aide in assisting her to her feet. Sure enough, a woman and a man rush over and assist the octogenarian career politician in slowly being hauled to her feet.
“It’s better to not have on high heels,” Pelosi quips awkwardly, before looking down and trying to regain her composure.
The video has since gone viral, and was posted to Twitter with the caption, “Your leaders are weak, old, and stupid.”

The kneeling had apparently gone on for some eight minutes, as part of a numerical stand against supposed racial injustice.
Pelosi was castigated earlier this year for proposing a heavily partisan coronavirus stimulus bill:
Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) went on a fiery tirade against Speaker Nancy’s Pelosi’s (D-CA) pork-laden stimulus proposal that demands “racial pay equity” and “airplane emissions standards.”
“Nancy Pelosi decided it was time to play politics. Decided it was time to throw a grenade into the whole process,” Cruz said.
“The demands she’s pushing, I ask you, do they have anything to do with the coronavirus epidemic?”
“What are they pushing for? Changing the emissions standards on airplanes. Mr. President, what the hell do the emissions standards on airplanes have to do with thousands of people dying and millions of people out of work in the coronavirus epidemic,” Cruz thundered from the podium.
The racialized politics that Pelosi and other Democrats showed support for this Monday continues to ravage cities throughout the United States through violence and looting.
