Has the Speaker of the House joined the Dark Side?
Well, that’s what some on social media and internet forums believe, as they compared House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s black “somber” attire to the classic Star Wars Villain Emperor Palpatine.
“When you need to stop the Dem’s thunderous applause so that you don’t give away your true identity,” one Redditor said, posting a picture comparing Pelosi and Palpatine.
Another asked on Twitter: “Nancy Pelosi and Emperor Palpatine — long-lost twins??”

So, who wore it better? While Pelosi went with the gold accents in her pin and necklace, Palpatine stuck with the worn-leather look.
Fun and games aside, Pelosi’s staff told the media that she decide to wear black to mark the “somber” event that was the official impeachment vote of President Donald Trump. When asked about her all-black attire, Pelosi said she “feels sad” that she and her colleagues were obligated to impeach.
The House speaker is expected to delay the transportation of the articles of impeachment to the Senate. For how long? We don’t know. But we do know that the Senate is the next step in the process, where Democrats will be hard-pressed to find two-thirds of the body willing to impeach Trump.
The timing of this Pelosi-Palpatine duo is rather humorous, as the highly-anticipated “Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker” is expected to feature the Palpatine, the Sith Lord.
