“Good afternoon, everyone,” Pelosi started. “Uh, it is really an honor to be here with our Distinguished Delegation from the House of Representatives. I want them all to stand so you can see who they are. Congressman Earl Blumenauer, McCallum, McCollum, Pingree, Keating, Bonamici, Brownley, Huffman, Lowenthal, Beyer, Boyle, Espaillat, Casten, Escobar, Ocasio Cortez, Levin Negus.”
“Uh, thank you all for being here,” Pelosi said as the crowd stayed completely silent. “Uh, today, we will hear, and that’s an applause line in case you didn’t know. We can applaud ourselves. We applaud ourselves.”
The climate event was a Dems disaster, and at one point, Obama mixed up Ireland and Scotland.
Fox News covered this story:
Former President Barack Obama mixed up Scotland and Ireland while addressing the COP26 conference in Glasgow on Monday.
Toward the end of his speech at the United Nations climate change event held this year in the Scottish city, Obama referred to the location by a common nickname for the wrong country.
“Since we’re in the Emerald Isles here, let me quote the bard, William Shakespeare,” Obama said. “‘What wound,’ he writes, ‘did ever heal but by degrees.’”
The term “Emerald Isle” refers to Ireland, not Scotland or other countries in the United Kingdom. On top of that, Shakespeare is England’s national bard, not Scotland’s. That honor goes to Robert Burns, author of poems and songs, including “Auld Lang Syne.”
Obama’s quote was directed toward the young people in the audience, telling them that combating climate change is “a marathon, not a sprint,” and that while they should “stay angry” and “frustrated,” they should know that “solving a problem this big, this complex and this important has never happened all at once.”
The former president also directed young people to pressure lawmakers into taking action against climate change and make their voices heard at the polls.
“Vote like your life depends on it, because it does,” he said.
