Pelosi under fire as National Guard troops sick after being ‘served METAL SHAVINGS & raw meat while protecting Capitol’

NATIONAL Guard troops have fallen sick after they were served mouldy food containing metal shavings and raw meat whilst protecting the US Capitol.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has been blamed on social media for the atrocity, with some calling for the soldiers to be sent home.

A staff sergeant with the Michigan National Guard who wished to remain anonymous told WXYZ that the force has repeatedly complained after more than a dozen troops were made ill by raw meat.

Over 25,000 troops were ordered to Washington to protect the Capitol during Biden's inauguration as a result of the violent coup attempt on January 6.

"Yesterday, there were 74 different meals with raw beef found in them.

"Just yesterday soliders had found metal shavings in their food," he said.

The whistleblower shared gruesome images of meat for consumption that appeared to be completely raw in the middle.

The meals had also been left around for up to four hours before they were served, making them "even more dangerous", he said.

As well as inadequate food standards, the troops were also being "woefully underfed".

The daily meal plan for the men and women who were defending the Capitol against domestic terrorist plots was slammed by the staff sergeant.

He said that a typical breakfast was that of a Danish and juice, but at times it wasn't even that, it would "clearly be a dinner roll and SunnyD".

A solider who complained last month said that "multiple soldiers have been getting sick and vomiting after eating."

He told Detroit News: "Morale is very bad, many have served overseas and cannot believe the quality of food they are being fed here."

In a statement released by the Michigan National Guard on Monday read: "The health and wellbeing of our Michigan National Guard service members is paramount to their success as they continue to serve in missions in the United States and around the globe."

Nancy Pelosi has been blamed on social media, with one user tweeting: "Pelosi and Congress make me sick National Guard needs to go home they don't need treat poison an ill treated by the government using them and abusing them."

Another accused Pelosi of "hating" the military.

Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's office told local media that she had taken up the issue last month and was told the situation was sorted.

Last Tuesday, all 14 members of the Michigan House delegation signed a letter asking the National Guard to void the food service and opt for another supplier.

Lawmakers said it was "completely unacceptable that our men and women serving in Washington, D.C, are being hospitalized due to the food they are being provided."

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis had previously ordered the Florida National Guard troops sent to the Capitol back home - and blamed Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi for their horrible sleeping conditions.

Last night, I ordered our Adjutant General to bring Florida National Guard soldiers home from the National Capital Region," DeSantis tweeted early Friday morning, but he didn't hide his distaste for the House Speaker.

"They are soldiers," DeSantis said on Fox. "They are not Nancy Pelosi’s servants."

"This is a half-cocked mission at this point and I think the appropriate thing is to bring them home," he continued.
