McConnell Mocks Pelosi "Handing Out Souvenir" Pens After Impeachment Signing

|

Republican Majority Leader Mitch McConnell criticized House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for making a show of using 30 golden pens presented on silver platters to sign her name when she officially endorsed the two articles of impeachment against President Trump.



“The Speaker distributed souvenir pens, souvenir pens to her own colleagues emblazoned with her golden signature that literally came in on silver platters,” McConnell said on the Senate floor Thursday. He called it "the House’s partisan process distilled into one last perfect visual. Not solemn or serious. A transparently political exercise from beginning to end."



The majority leader tweeted that this moment is "the House’s partisan process distilled into one last perfect visual. Not solemn or serious. A transparently political exercise from beginning to end."

"The Speaker distributed souvenir pens, souvenir pens to her own colleagues emblazoned with her golden signature that literally came in on silver platters. The pens literally came in on silver platters. Golden pens on silver platters," McConnell said.



House Republican Whip Steve Scalise tweeted that Pelosi handing the pens to her fellow Democrats was "unbelievable," saying, "So much for 'somber' and 'solemn.'"
