I'm just going by the headline, but I'm sure that I saw another headline talking about a Pelosi mansion in Florida Yesterday.

/wtf?

We here on Fark.com knew it was bullshiat when it was submitted a week ago yesterday.

Well, failmitter didn't know.

Well, maybe Nancy Pelosi didn't buy a $25 mansion, but nobody is disputing that Kamala Harris purchased a pot that cost almost $400 while jet-setting in Paris, a city filled with foreigners who don't even speak English. And yes, you read that right. A pot. As in, a single cooking pot. Yes, one pot. She did this despite the fact that many respectable websites offer pots -- even sets including multiple pots -- for much, much less than that. See, for example, this set which includes 9 pieces (pots and lids each count as one piece, so technically it's five pots with four lids, but still) for under $20. Even including the lids, that's less than $5 a pot. For the price of Kamala's Golden Pot, you could purchase almost 10 of these sets -- that's 90 pots and lids! And we don't even have confirmation that her pot *came* with a lid at all! And, get this: The pots I linked to? They're non-stick pots. That means they utilize the most scientifically advanced pot technology available to us. Does Kamala's pot include this technology? No, it was copper. That's right, copper. As in, the stuff they used back in the Copper Age, which predated all of the other metal ages. Even a basic bronze or iron pot would have been a better value than some stupid, millennia-out-of-date copper pot. What, did she find it on some archaeological dig? Is she planning on selling it to a museum, like Indiana Jones? Oh, for a return to the days of a president in the White House who understands the struggles of True Americans, who understands the true value of a dollar, of simple living, of being happy with what you need, not with what you can flaunt. But that's a Democrat for you: Poverty for thee, not for me.

And we will see absolutely nothing about this on any major news site.  Because heaven forfend they should call these assholes out on their shiat.

What leaves me absolutely farking gobsmacked is that, since the rumor broke, the listing agent's phone has been ringing off the hook.

Well, it would mean that your neighborhood was about to be flooded with Trumpanzees rolling out the welcome wagon for her. That means traffic jams, noise, mountains of trash and human waste being left behind, and a good chance of weapons being handled irresponsibly, accidental shootings and property damage to nearby homes.

We really need to make the distinction between wrong information being published in news because
a) they were on the verge of bankruptcy and are operating on a shoe-string budget and don't have the people any more to chase down those details
Vs
b) this is a deliberately funded propaganda operation directed at spreading fear, uncertainty, and doubt among the population to achieve sinister political goals.

Who cares? She spent her money to buy a 375 dollar pot whats your point? Its her money. I spent almost as much money to get a lightsaber and it doesn't even do anything. There are thousands of people who are spending 399 dollars for a proton pack that doesn't even include a neutrino wand or backpack frame.

You're missing the point.  That's nearly $400 for a single pot.  That's almost $500.  If you rounded up it would be $1000.  On a POT.  That's just money that's going to be wasted on a single piece of cookware, and mind you, since Harris is a public official, that's almost $4,000 of taxpayer wages that had to be taxed in order for her to buy this thing.  So, if you think it's OK that someone had to earn the better part of $5,000 just to be taxed so the VP could buy something she won't probably even use, that's crazy.  Imagine she cooks on this thing once a year--That's once every 365 days, so that $5,000 dollars of income  should really be considered $1.8M!!

And it's not like she's doing something that would stimulate the economy, like golfing, where the money spent goes to greens fees, caddy fees, cart rental, security fees, etc.  She's wasting essentially $2M of US taxpayer income on a decoration.

Oh yeah, sure, she's going to give up the incredible mansion and other homes in San Francisco and around, for farking flat Florida, with the added bonus of having TFG as a neighbor.

It's laughable on it's face in the first place.

As for that whackjob, MTG, she saw (if she didn't just flat make itup) some older well dressed and elegant woman on her plane and thought it was Pelosi.  Because no elderly elegant, well dressed woman ever go to Florida.
