While President Trump has raised the conditions of Baltimore and Nancy Pelosi’s own district, Pelosi is off on a vacation. She is famous for making use of the CODEL, the Congressional delegation trips, to fly on our dime in military planes to great places. She went to Venice and Africa with a lot of the Congressional Black Caucus, including Ilhan Omar.
Here she is chowing down with Ilhan Omar and Sheila Jackson Lee, among other members, at aCipriani restaurant in Venice. Contrary to what is said there, Elijah Cummings was not with them, he was not part of the delegation. John Lewis was on the trip.
Here’s Nancy Pelosi, the Squad and Elijah Cummings (just out of the picture) having an extremely expensive lunch at the renowned Harry Cipriani in Venice, right near their 5 star hotel, while their constituents are living in squalor. Inequality??:

Speaker Pelosi weighs in on poverty in West Baltimore …. from a 5 star, rooftop restaurant in Venice, Italy.
.@RepCummings is a champion in the Congress and the country for civil rights and economic justice, a beloved leader in Baltimore, and deeply valued colleague. We all reject racist attacks against him and support his steadfast leadership. #ElijahCummingsIsAPatriot
They then went onto Ghana:
Today, our distinguished delegation met with top officials at the @USArmyAfrica HQ. We thank our men and women in uniform for their service to our nation and commit to the pursuit of freedom across the world.
Meanwhile, her district has had to deploy poop patrols to deal with all the human waste in the streets.
