Let Them Eat Cake: Pelosi hosts 192 Democrats at D.C. restaurant as military families go unpaid

Kristinn Taylor in a Gateway Pundit article reports:

According to media reports, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) invited the 192 Democrat Members of the House of Representatives out to dinner at a fancy Italian restaurant in Washington, D.C. Saturday during the first day of the government shutdown.

The restaurant is the Acqua Al 2 with a rather expensive a la carte menu with a salad costing $14, cheapest soup $8, cheapest dinner $12 and dessert $12. So the dinner, without drinks or beverages, cost Rep. Pelosi at approximately $46 per guest or about $8,882 to feed her 192 Democrat colleagues, not including a tip, for the night’s celebration.

At some point around 1789, when being told that her French subjects had no bread, Marie-Antoinette (bride of France’s King Louis XVI) supposedly sniffed, “Qu’ils mangent de la brioche”—“Let them eat cake.”

Responding to a Jake Sherman tweet “PELOSI hosting a dinner for all House Dems tonight at aqua al 2, Thomas-S FL asked, “Can my @USArmy daughter go?”

It appears that Nancy Pelosi is just as obliviousness to the conditions and daily lives of ordinary people and members of the U.S. military as was Marie-Antoinette.

We know that Marie-Antoinette was convicted and sent to the guillotine on October 16, 1793. Will Nancy Pelosi’s Democratic Party face the same fate during the 2018 midterm elections 225 years after Marie-Antoinette’s demise? Time will tell.
