House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and a number of her congressional colleagues gathered to kneel on Monday for the time they say a police officer had his knee on the neck of George Floyd, but the photo op did not quite go as planned.
After the 8 minutes and 46 seconds the incident lasted, the members of Congress — including 79-year-old James Clyburn — rose.
But Pelosi nearly toppled over, quickly motioning for an aide to help her to her feet.
“It’s better not to have on high heels,” Pelosi said with a laugh as her mask dangled under her chin.
