House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi is being attacked on social media for comments she made about her “relationship” with China, which she spoke about at a press conference on Thursday.

Pelosi said she always had a special relationship with China because of her childhood memories.

“When I was a little girl, I was told on the beach that if I dig a hole deep enough we would reach China, so we always felt a connection there,” said Pelosi.

Pelosi commented on this during a trip to the Indo-Pacific.

“The imbeciles really lead us,” said Outkick founder Clay Travis.

“LOL what?” Said Benny Johnson of Turning Point USA.

“Make sure we look like idiots to the rest of the world,” said one Twitter user.

“Are you telling me this person was our best choice to visit Taiwan?” Another Twitter user said.

Pelosi traveled to the Indo-Pacific last week and made a stop in Taiwan on Tuesday, despite many threats from China advising her not to visit the island.

“Our visit is one of several Congressional delegations to Taiwan – and in no way contradicts the long-standing US policy guided by the Taiwan Relations Act of 1979, the US-China Joint Communications and Six Assurances,” Pelosi said in a statement. “The United States continues to oppose unilateral efforts to change the status quo.”
