Comedian Russell Brand Torches Nancy Pelosi Over Stock Trades

“Get Him To The Greek” star Russell Brand took aim at House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) over her husband’s stock trades on his YouTube channel.

In a recent video called, “You’ve Gotta Be F***ing Kidding Me,” Brand slammed the Democrat congresswoman for her husband, Paul Pelosi’s multi-million dollar purchase of shares in Nvidia, a semiconductor company, ahead of the Senate’s vote on a $52 billion computer chip bill. 

“Are members of Congress, Nancy Pelosi, becoming rich because they are lucky or is it because they have access to insider trading information that they then give to their husbands who trade on the stock market?” Brand questioned. 

“Today we’re talking about Nancy Pelosi and the stock market. She has been confronted with the grim truth that possibly some people believe that Nancy Pelosi’s trading deals, or the Pelosi family’s trading deals, are somewhat benefiting from Nancy Pelosi’s insider information,” he continued. 

“Now, if you see a connection between Nancy Pelosi debating about whether [to] give billions of dollars of support to the chip industry, and Paul Pelosi investing in the chip industry, you’re obviously some sort of conspiracy theorist,” Brand snarked.

Perhaps due to the controversy, Pelosi’s husband sold 25,000 shares of Nvidia at a loss of $341,365, one day prior to the Senate passing the $280 billion legislation. 

Brand mocked Pelosi for initially dodging a reporter’s question about whether Paul had ever traded stocks based on her information, then vehemently denying that it ever happened. 

“If ever you’re asked a difficult question in public and you don’t answer it, there’s a few simple tips. First, ask them to repeat the question then sort of crane forward all weirdly,” Brand stated helpfully. 

“Then say, ‘no,’ as if you’re sort of offended by that, even though perhaps all day at work you’ve debating whether or not to give billions of dollars to the chip industry, your husband has just invested in the chip industry,” he went on.

“Then leave, just leave altogether, walk right out of there, don’t stop walking till you’re at home and you can enjoy some of the money you’ve made from the chip industry,” he said in conclusion.

I’ve made so far this year working online and I’m a full time student. I’m using an online business opportunity I heard about and I’ve (nag-94) made such great money. It’s really user friendly and I’m just so happy that I found out about it. Here’s what I do.
