Nancy Pelosi surprised fan goers at the Global Citizen Festival in New York’s Central Park and received a less than warm welcome.
Nancy Pelosi – Special Guest
Nancy Pelosi, 82, born March 16, 1940, appeared as a special “surprise” guest speaker at New York’s Global Citizen Festival Saturday, September 24. This year’s music festival, which normally garners around 60,000 attendees, took place at Central Park.
Democrat Speaker of the House was ‘welcomed’ to the stage by Priyanka Chopra.
Priyanka Chopra, the extremely popular Quantico Indian actress, is a representative of UNICEF and spoke at New York’s United Nations General Assembly meeting last week. Chopra-Jonas is married to Nick Jonas and welcomed their first child in January 2022.
Pelosi Got Booed
The New York Post reported that Pelosi spoke while fans were eagerly awaiting their favorite musicians from bands like Metallica, Charlie Puth, Jonas Brothers, and Maria Carey. “As speaker of the house, I am here to thank you for your dazzling advocacy, entrepreneurial thinking, and determination as global citizens. It’s thanks to your help that the United States recently enacted historic climate legislation, which will be a game changer. It will slash carbon pollution by 40% by 2030, it will give a historic, an historic $370 billion to fight the climate crisis.”

Fox News reported that the crowd reacted loudly to her comments, while others were heard cheering for Pelosi.
Pelosi’s popularity has been somewhat spotty in recent months because of possible insider stock trading by her husband, Paul Pelosi, and her high-profile trip to popular chip-manufacturing country Taiwan, where she took her politician son, Paul Pelosi, Jr.
The Global Citizen Festival
According to the Global Citizen Festival’s website they take “action and calling on world and corporate leaders to make meaningful commitments to achieve the end of extreme poverty. The world’s biggest artists have helped amplify those calls and achieve an astounding amount of impact. Since Global Citizen built its first stage in 2012, Global Citizens have taken over 30 million actions, leading to over $41.1B in dispersed funding that’s impacting the lives of over 1.15 billion people.”
Also speaking at the event was President of the European Commission Ursula von der Leyen.
