A meme that claims Nancy Pelosi appointed a muslim woman to Chaplain of the US House, has been going around Facebook.
The meme shows a woman wearing a turban and states:
MEET TOOKA PIZINSTEE, FIRST WOMAN TO LEAD A MUSLAMIC CONGREGATION IN THE USA
NANCY PELOSI JUST APPOINTED HER AS CHAPLAIN OF THE US HOUSE
SHARE IF YOU DON’T RECOGNIZE AMERICA ANY MORE!
See meme below:
This is untrue. Nancy Pelosi did not appoint a muslim woman to Chaplain of the US House.
The woman in the photo is Lady Gaga at a press event in Belgium in 2014, not a muslim woman named “Tooka Pizinistee”.
Furthermore, the name “Tooka Pizinistee” is a gag name, when sounded out is pronounced “Took a piss in his tea”.
Though some are trying to pass the meme off as real, it is totally fake.
