Democrat Speaker Nancy Pelosi was greeted with an anti-Biden “welcome” at her San Francisco press conference when she was heckled by a protester with the viral “Let’s go Brandon” chant on Monday.
Pelosi was speaking to defend the Democrats’ implosion after the final nail was hammered into the coffin of Biden’s Build Back Better act by one of their own.
The speaker warned she will not give up and still has faith that Joe Manchin will come around, despite comments from the senator that reveal otherwise.
“Well, we never give up,” Pelosi said.
“This will happen, it must happen, and we will do it as soon as we can.
“There are conversations that are ongoing but we cannot walk away from this commitment.”
“I have confidence that Senator Manchin cares about our country and that at some point very soon we can take up the legislation. I am not deterred at all.”
Toward the end of her short speech a heckler interrupted her by yelling: “Let’s go Brandon. Woooooo! USA. USA.”

A still furious, AOC demanded that President Joe Biden takes the kid gloves off after Manchin ended her socialist dream of passing a massive new spending bill.
Biden needs to lean on his executive authority now.
He has been delaying and underutilizing it so far.
There is an enormous amount he can do on climate, student debt, immigration, cannabis, health care, and more.
Time is running out – we need to move and use alternative paths.
“It’s really about time that we take the kid gloves off and we start using them to govern for working families in this country.”
