Gutfeld: Pelosi Used the 'Icon Clause' to Defend John Conyers
Greg Gutfeld said that House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) is being hypocritical by giving Rep. John Conyers (D-Mich.) the "pig pass" - defending his bad behavior because of his politics.
Pelosi said that Conyers, who at 88 years old is the longest-serving member of the House, is "an icon in our country."
Conyers has served in Congress for 52 years, representing Detroit.
And with Pelosi defending Conyers as an “icon,” no wonder his victims were afraid to speak out. https://t.co/CkJnT0aWTB

John Conyers is NOT an American icon regardless of what Nancy Pelosi thinks. He, Elijah Cummings, John Lewis and others in the Congressional Black Caucus have been loyal lap dog votes for Democrat liberal policies that have DECIMATED the BLACK COMMUNITY. https://t.co/NjV9Zokky5

Gutfeld said Pelosi used the "icon clause" which he added apparently allows dignitaries to have their public service excuse their public behavior.
"I call it the pig pass," he said.
In a clip Gutfeld played, Pelosi spoke to the late Tim Russert in 1998, criticizing the work of Special Prosecutor Ken Starr, who Americans "don't want to see... investigate the president" with unlimited resources.
"At least she's consistent in her hypocrisy," Gutfeld said. "If the harasser's on your team, you soften your stance."
Kimberly Guilfoyle agreed that a legislator's record "doesn't give [them] a pass for inappropriate behavior."
Watch more above.
