Nancy Pelosi read a debunked version of a story about the signers of the Declaration of Independence today. It’s been widely debunked. It’s one of those stories that gets sent around in emails.
During an event held by Democratic lawmakers to discuss the “Democrats for Democracy Reform Legislative Package” and #wethepeople campaign, she read the account known to be full of inaccuracies.
When I received it, I checked the Snopes data and they were correct.
Pelosi said, “Understand what our responsibility is to protect what so many people sacrificed so much to achieve for our country.”
Except the story was fake Nancy!
Certainly our Founders did make enormous sacrifices but stories about our history should be proofed, especially when a congresswoman is reading them.
She referred to our “democracy” which is also wrong. We are a Republic.
Nancy Pelosi was spreading fake news.
