House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is in hot water for remarks she made following the announcement of the verdict in the Derek Chauvin murder trial.

As she stood with members of the Congressional Black Caucus moments after the Minneapolis jury found Chauvin guilty on all three counts relating to the death of George Floyd, Pelosi looked to the heavens and proclaimed, "Thank you, George Floyd, for sacrificing your life for justice."

Pelosi was slammed for the comments.

Pelosi posted follow-up remarks on Twitter to clarify what she was trying to say.
