House Speaker Nancy Pelosi plans to use for a press event Wednesday afternoon the same lectern that a rioter dragged through the halls of the Capitol during last week’s insurrection, her office confirmed to POLITICO.
A member of the violent pro-Donald Trump mob that stormed the Capitol last week went viral after being photographed parading with the lectern through the building. Pelosi spokesperson Drew Hammill said the lectern never left the Capitol and was simply moved from the speaker’s office to the Senate side of the building.
The lectern was photographed being carried through the rotunda Wednesday.
Adam Johnson, 36, the Florida man who was pictured with the lectern, was arrested Friday, the Justice Department announced last weekend. He was charged with three crimes, including theft of government property.
Chrissy's Court star Chrissy Teigen might be an outspoken Democrat, but she made a surprising statement about former First Lady Melania Trump on Thursday morning.
'I will say, Melania killed the White House fashion game,' the 35-year-old wisecracking presenter - who boasts 47.7M social media followers - tweeted.
'Literally the only thing she did, so do not take that one single thing she did away from her.'
However, Chrissy was not a fan of the $39 Zara jacket emblazoned with 'I really don't care, do u?' after visiting Texas' Upbring New Hope Children's Shelter in 2018.
Teigen wrote: 'Yes of course the jacket was trash!'
That same year, the Slovenian-born 50-year-old was criticized for going on safari in Kenya while wearing a traditional pith helmet, which is a symbol of European colonial rule across Africa.
Replying to a fan, the half-Thai Utah native tweeted she would have worn the LBD Melania donned to meet Pope Francis at the Vatican in 2017 - but with 'different hair and no veil.'
Trump (born Knavs) idolized former First Lady Jackie Kennedy and every stitch of clothing she wore over the last four years was professionally styled by Hervé Pierre.
Hours later, after reading horrified tweets from fans, Chrissy - who's followed by President Joe Biden - took back her praise for the former model.
'Sometimes I try to be nice and honest and even that is wrong and it's confusing and I don't know what to say,' Teigen tweeted.
'I promise I still think they very much suck. I care too much about making everyone happy for this app! how did I get here man oh man. It is so much easier, emotionally, to just never ever talk because then I don't beat myself up after! I'm gonna get my assistant to set up a fake creedthoughts dot com a la Ryan for me.'
The Lip Sync Battle color commentator concluded: 'You guys really know how to f*** a person up, I'll tell you that much. I got it, I got it. You have drilled it into my head and I legitimately know that was a s*** take. I promise. I am gonna go now!'
Ultimately, Melania will 'be best' remembered for not 'giving a f*** about Christmas,' destroying the White House Rose Garden, and plagiarizing former First Lady Michelle Obama twice.
Chrissy - who's nearly two months sober - was in Washington, D.C. for the inauguration of Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris.
Teigen's husband John Legend performed during the inaugural primetime special Celebrating America, which aired Wednesday night on most networks.
'It was so special for me to celebrate with the nation in front of the memorial to one of our greatest presidents,' John tweeted on Wednesday night.
'AND I loved honoring the late great Nina Simone, my constant source of musical inspiration.'
