Even as the guilty verdict was being handed down in the case of former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin in the death of George Floyd - and even before, in some cases - liberals were out in full force and channeling their inner philosopher to put out the deepest - and, for our amusement, stupidest - takes on the trial, the verdict, and what it means for the country. 

Here are seven of the dumbest hot takes from liberals waxing poetic over the verdict.

Nancy Pelosi thanking George Floyd for dying – no, seriously.

Floyd’s own girlfriend saying Floyd “gave his life so this could happen.”

Minnesota AG Keith Ellison saying a guilty verdict doesn’t constitute “justice,” but does show “accountability."

Followed up by NY Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortex saying the verdict doesn’t even qualify as “full accountability.”

Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey saying Floyd’s murder made his city “better.”

Rep. Ayanna Pressley bizarrely claiming justice can never be delivered when someone is killed.

California Gov. Gavin Newsom’s wife, Jennifer Siebel Newsom, saying the guilty verdict “offers a retribution on toxic masculinity.”
