Speaker Pelosi was in Rhode Island on Sunday giving a commencement speech at Brown University.
It didn’t take long for many social media users on both sides of the political aisle to weigh in on the matter.
Colorado GOP Rep. Lauren Boebert: “This Memorial Day weekend, remember not to drink and drive. Save a life, call an Uber. @SpeakerPelosi.”
Chad Prather, The Blaze: “Paul Pelosi is worth $120M and this economy is so bad even he can’t afford a chauffeur.”
Conservative commentator Brigitte Gabriel: “Paul Pelosi is worth over $100 million and he can’t afford to call a cab.”
Democrat strategist Peter Daou: “The DUI is bad, but the Pelosi family’s insider trading is even worse.”
Harmeet K. Dhillon, attorney: “Thank God no one was hurt. Hope he gets some help for this problem.”
Jesse Kelly, radio host: “Always blows me away when this happens to rich people. Dude is worth over $100 million. Bro, hire a driver. My word.”
Mike Cernovich, political commentator: “The body metabolizes alcohol as you get older. I know a guy who got a DUI in his 70s. He had only had two glasses of wine at dinner, but those machines say what they say. Keep this in mind as we all get older. One glass even might trigger those machines.”
Charles Gasparino, journalist: “With all the money these people make trading stocks you would think they can afford an Uber.”
Mark Levin, radio host: “Can’t really blame him.”
Jason Rantz, radio host: “As long as there’s no special treatment, not sure it’s news that the husband of Nancy Pelosi got a DUI.”
Chad Prather, The Blaze: “Nancy Pelosi’s husband arrested for DUI. If she was your wife, you’d be drinking and trying to get away too.”
