Pelosi mocked for wishing Americans a ‘Happy Shwanza’ during final speech as House Speaker: ‘Shawarma?’

Twitter grilled House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., on Friday for wishing people a “Happy Shwanza” instead of “Kwanzaa” during remarks that ended the House’s vote on the “omnibus” spending bill.

After the 4,155-page, $1.7 trillion bill passed the House of Representatives on Friday, Pelosi decided to close the congressional session by wishing a happy weekend to several different groups that celebrate this time of year, including one that doesn’t exist.

In her resignation — which she claimed “will likely be my last speech as Speaker of the House” — Pelosi said: “I return the balance of my time and wish everyone a happy, healthy and safe New Year. Happy weekend. Happy Holidays Christmas . Happy Shwanza. Happy Hanukah.”

Making sure she respected all the major holidays this season, she added, “Whatever it is you’re celebrating, be safe! Thank you, Mr. Speaker.” Although several Twitter users fixated on “Shwanza” and ridiculed the Democratic Party leader for it.

Conservative digital strategist Greg Price shared the 17-second clip on Twitter, tweeting: “Pelosi ends her final speech as Speaker of the House by wishing everyone a Merry Christmas, Happy Hannukah and a ‘Happy Shwanza’.”

Price then updated a classic Christmas line to reflect Pelosi’s fork. “Happy Shwanza to all and a good night to all,” he tweeted.
