“I only will do that [name a bill after George Floyd] if this legislation is worthy of George Kirby’s name, and he said it is,” the speaker said today.
She did not catch her own mistake. Schumer, at least, did correct himself after botching Floyd's name twice.
This begs the question: After four weeks of heavy news coverage, and of George Floyd's name being on the lips of the average American, how are these top Democrats able to flub his name? Do they even talk about Floyd off-camera? Do they even care enough about George Floyd that his name just automatically flows easily off of their tongues? No and no, apparently. To Pelosi and Schumer, the tragedy of George Floyd's death is just a cheap talking point.Can't make this up. In the middle of his speech to kill the @TimScottSC police reform bill, Chuck Schumer can't even get George Floyd's name right.— Andrew Clark (@AndrewHClark) June 24, 2020

Democrats are blocking this bill for crass political reasons. Won't even allow amendments. pic.twitter.com/Z49p6JkzxX
