Amid another major corporation giving its employees bonuses as a result of the GOP tax cuts, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders made sure House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi knew about it.
On Saturday, Best Buy announced that 100,000 of its employees would be getting a bonus as a direct result of the tax cut bill, which President Donald Trump signed into law in December but will take effect this month.
While spreading the good news, Sanders took a not-so-subtle jab at Pelosi for her efforts to downplay how millions of Americans are benefiting already from the tax cuts.
In a single tweet, Sanders smashed spoiled Pelosi for refusing to admit the tax cuts are helping Americans.
100,000 Best Buy employees get Trump tax cut bonuses or as Nancy Pelosi likes to call them: “crumbs”

The link in Sanders’ tweet is from the Star Tribune newspaper in Minnesota, which detailed how Best Buy is giving full-time employees a $1,000 bonus and part-time employees a $500 bonus.
“In all, more than 100,000 of Best Buy’s 125,000 employees in the U.S., Mexico and Canada are expected to receive the extra cash,” the article stated.
Best Buy is just one of many companies that have given employees a bonus or pay raise, but Pelosi has made it clear with her comments on the GOP tax cuts how out of touch she is the Americans she claims to represent.
Sanders’ dig at Pelosi was in reference to comments the House minority leader made last month about millions of Americans getting at least a $1,000 bonus and/or pay raise being nothing more than mere “crumbs.”
“A number of bonuses – one of the bonuses was in a union contract and then they added a little more money to that,” Pelosi said, according to The Daily Caller.
She added: “In terms of the bonus that corporate America receives versus the crumbs they are giving to workers to put the schmooze on — it’s so pathetic.”
A thousand extra dollars may be “crumbs” to Pelosi — a San Francisco millionaire — but many Americans are happy to receive a bonus and/or pay raise for their hard work.
Given that not a single Democrat voted in favor of the GOP tax cuts bill, Pelosi is trying to downplay the significance of its impact average Americans’ lives.
More importantly, Sanders further showed how Pelosi is spoiled rotten and that she is incapable of relating to the everyday Americans she claims to represent.
Pelosi is a complete disgrace, but Sarah Huckabee Sanders knows how to handle her.
