Who is more out of touch: Democrats or Republicans?

House Speaker Paul Ryan became the center of ridicule after he deleted a tweet that shared a story about a secretary who received a $1.50 paycheck boostHouse Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi fired back at Ryan, calling the $1.50 pay increase "crumbs." But many argue the $1,000 bonuses some are receiving under the new tax plan hardly qualify as "crumbs" and Pelosi is out of touch with the average American. Then again, Ryan thinks an extra six quarters is something substantial. Who is more out of touch? 🤷

House Speaker Paul Ryan shared—then deleted—a tweet celebrating a secretary's $1.50 per week pay increase. Twitter was quick to drag him.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi also chimed in, calling the "six quarters" of a pay increase "crumbs."

But Ryan fired back at Pelosi's "crumbs" comments, claiming they prove she is out of touch.

If Pelosi thinks $1,000 bonus checks are just "crumbs," she really has no idea what the average American needs.

And many view the media's ferocity toward Paul Ryan over a deleted tweet just exposes their bias.

But seriously, $1.50 a week? How can Republicans claims Democrats are out of touch when they tout a Costco membership as proof of success.
