Sen. John Kennedy laid into House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, suggesting that she was one of the people who tried to eat some Tide Pods, referring back to that viral craze where people were biting into detergent and making videos out of it.
Pretty stupid thing to do, right? It's detergent, not candy! Anyway, there's no video of Nancy Pelosi ever eating a Tide Pod and Kennedy was being sarcastic with his comment, trying to insult her by saying it. He's calling her out for what's going on with the relief bill.
“With respect, there are times, particularly recently, when I think Speaker Pelosi is one of those people who tried Tide pods. I want you to think about what she proposed today, this is what the speaker is threatening to do...." and that Pelosi "is threatening to keep the House Democrats in session and prevent them from going home and running for reelection unless the Senate Republicans agree to the speaker’s $3.4 trillion" relief bill.
