Rep. Nancy Pelosi again referred to worker bonuses as “crumbs,” even while acknowledging that people have been mocking her for her out-of-touch comments.


Pelosi spoke at another tax-reform town hall in Massachusetts on Thursday, and made sure to remind everyone that she thinks the $1,000 bonuses companies are handing out in the wake of Trump’s tax cuts are “crumbs.” (RELATED: Media Blackout As Democrats Publicly Struggle With Benefits Of GOP Tax Cut)

Her comments were relatively incoherent, but she essentially argued that the bonuses are nothing when compared to what the corporations get in tax cuts. She also admitted that she’s seen the ads mocking her for calling them “crumbs.” (RELATED: Pelosi: $1,000 Is ‘Crumbs’ For The Middle Class) 

“There is a tax advantage in the beginning for workers and that’s their enticement,” Pelosi said. “While they give banquets to… the high end, to corporate America, and I say ‘crumbs,’ they mock me in ads for saying that, compared to what they get at the high end.”
