WATCH: While Pelosi enjoys her fortune, here’s a video of her district

Last week, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi made headlines after appearing as a guest on James Corden’s “The Late Late Show,” during which Pelosi showed the comedian and his audience her large stash of high-priced gourmet ice cream well stored in his two refrigerators, each worth approximately $24,000.

The controversy arose because, at the same time that the House Speaker appeared on television showing her luxurious lifestyle in her San Francisco mansion, her party colleagues were sharply refusing to approve a package of measures aimed at helping small businesses in the United States, the country’s main economic engine, and while 22 million American workers became unemployed due to the current coronavirus crisis.

However, Pelosi’s lack of empathy and rudeness does not end here, as is obvious to most of us. Nancy Pelosi has been representing California’s 12th Congressional District for over 30 years. Her salary, along with her successful investments in the stock market and her husband Paul’s venture capital firm, makes her one of the wealthiest members of Congress, living a life of luxury and privilege that contrasts with the reality that thousands of residents of her own district — which comprises virtually the entire city of San Francisco, one of the most unequal cities in the country — have to face every day.

Drugs, crime, and filth have taken over much of the city’s streets, mostly due to the housing prices in the Bay Area. In fact, the price of housing in San Francisco has skyrocketed in recent years by approximately 800% according to Business Insider, costing a two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment as much as $1.5 million, a staggering amount of money.
