Nancy Pelosi’s genuine feelings of the American people slipped out in a recent audio clip.
The House speaker was captured saying that she loves to “eat at 5:30, like a peasant,” showing her contempt for working-class Americans.
While it’s unknown when Pelosi made the statement, the audio clip was shared widely on Wednesday.
In the clip, Pelosi mentions how she’s from Baltimore and enjoys dinner earlier, while her husband from San Francisco has dinner with elites later in the evening.
Here’s the audio:
“And to this day, my husband, Paul, who was born and raised in San Francisco – I was born and raised in Baltimore – to this day, he likes to dine at 8 and I like to eat at 5:30, like a peasant,” Pelosi said in the undated audio released by RNC Research.
Should we assume Pelosi is eating like a ‘peasant’ from her expensive refrigerator, where she engorges on gourmet ice cream?

She’s likely not eating lentils like Bloomberg News recommended for the ‘peasants.’

Speaking of Pelosi’s husband, it was revealed Wednesday that he has purchased 2,500 shares of Tesla stock worth $2 million as Democrats continue to push their green energy agenda.
Pelosi has argued that elected representatives should be able to trade stocks despite potential conflicts of interest, noting in December that lawmakers “should be able to participate” in trading following a Business Insider exposé revealing that “57 members of Congress and at least 182” well-paid staffers filed stock trades late in 2020 and 2021.
