House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was reportedly too busy to take a call from Vice President Mike Pence Tuesday that was to inform her Iran was launching a ballistic missile attack on U.S. forces in Iraq.

“Tell him I’ll call him back,” Pelosi said, according to a Politico reporter.

As Julio reported, Pelosi later tweeted that she was "closely monitoring the situation" but minutes before she was spotted at the grand opening of a restaurant. 

Pelosi and other top Democrats have been upset in the past that they were not informed about important matters of foreign policy, including when the U.S. took out former ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.
