Pelosi receives 10,000 roses at Capitol Hill office courtesy of online fundraiser
By Owen Daugherty - 01/09/19 05:29 PM EST

Newly minted House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Wednesday received a delivery of 10,000 roses, courtesy of an online fundraiser organized by liberal news site, DailyKos.

DailyKos founder Markos Moulitsas said the fundraiser garnered enough donations from readers to fund the flower delivery in under two hours, The Washington Post reported.

The site, according to the Post, delivered a similar gift to Pelosi in 2010 to thank her for passing health care legislation.

Wednesday's effort raised enough money to buy 25,000 roses, the Post reported. The extras were shipped, at Pelosi's request, to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Md.

“I’ve never seen so many roses in my life,” Pelosi said.

Moulitsas said the effort was successful because “people wanted to do something nice for once,” amid an often negative political climate.

The donation comes as Pelosi and fellow Democratic leaders are locked in a tense battle with President Trump over his demands to fund a wall along the U.S.–Mexico border.

Trump met with Pelosi and congressional leaders at the White House on Wednesday to discuss border security following his Tuesday night prime-time address where he made his case for the money. Trump called the meeting a "total waste of time."

Pelosi said Democrats intend to push through with their plan to send four separate spending bills to the Senate over the next three days in an attempt to reopen the government, which has been in a partial shutdown since Dec. 22.

Wouldn’t lilies be more appropriate?

I was thinking more on the lines of daisies.

And you can send me dead flowers every morning,
Send me dead flowers by the mail,
Send me dead flowers to my wedding,
And I won't forget to put roses on your grave...

Nancy was asked what would be better than 10 thousand roses around her piano?

She replied, "Tulips on an organ".

So, I happened to ask the question in their comments: "why didn't they do something more meaningful with the money, like give it to a homeless charity instead of sending thousands of dollars to a wealthy "public servant"".  Caution - they are very, very sensitive on this topic.  I was told I didn't have the right to my opinion, and called a liar, and faced demands to justify a Wall.  They are really riled up.

@XenaLee, The Hill uses Disqus as their comment platform as does a lot of other sites (in case you're not familiar with it).   I use the same name there as I do on Twitter and elsewhere. 

When you post a comment to Disqus from The Hill, it is seen on The Hill comments section.

Anyway, you can go back and forth indefinitely there.

Oh, ok.   It didn't register (no caffeine yet) that the discussion was at "The Hill".  Thanks!

It looks like a bunch of moronic/brainwashed teenagers to me...lol.  Nothing new, IOW.  One actually claimed that "Pelosi is loved".  Whatta hoot.

Actually the florist got it wrong ... they should have been black roses.
