Speaker Pelosi’s Twitter account last noted on Sunday her commencement address to Brown University.
The Speaker of the House’s husband was busted for drunk driving this Memorial Day weekend, and it doesn’t appear his wife was in town either — she’s literally in Rhode Island giving a commencement speech for Brown University. https://t.co/8aPPxoy51A
