Fox News reports:
Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., mocked House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., for using commemorative pens with her name inscribed on them to sign a resolution to transmit two articles of impeachment against President Trump to the Senate for trial.
“It’s a very solemn and prayerful moment, guys, when you saw those gold-encrusted commemorative pens that Nancy Pelosi had specially made,” Cotton told “Fox & Friends” with sarcasm.
“You know, we thought that she may have some grand strategy for delaying the impeachment trial for 28 days. Maybe, she was just waiting for her special order pens to come in from the factory,” Cotton joked.
Nancy Pelosi’s souvenir pens served up on silver platters to sign the sham articles of impeachment…She was so somber as she gave them away to people like prizes. https://t.co/RMOiNeoMu0

McConnell on Pelosi's impeachment pens:
"Nothing says seriousness and sobriety like handing out souvenirs. As though this were a happy bill-signing instead of the gravest process in our Constitution."

This is how “serious, sad, and somber” Democrats are when sending the articles of impeachment to the Senate.

So much for Pelosi’s supposed serious and somber impeachment process.
She was handing out pens like party favors at the signing ceremony.
Just another example of how disgusting and partisan this impeachment charade has been.
