On Saturday, October 11, Pope Francis met with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi — and far-right Rep. Claudia Tenney of New York, in response, called both of them "communists."
The MAGA Republican and Donald Trump apologist, tweeting a photo of Pelosi and Pope Francis together, wrote, "Just two communists."
Tenney is being slammed for her comment on Twitter.
Here are some of the comments in response to Tenney's tweet:
