Nancy Pelosi berates ’30 Rock’ CEO Jack Donaghy’s high salary in series finale

Democratic Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) made a cameo on the finale of NBC’s “30 Rock” Thursday, playing her usual self–attacking people for making too much money.

On the show, Pelosi, along with Occupy Wall Street, is up in arms about Kabletown CEO Jack Donaghy’s high salary that was recently leaked to the public.

Pelosi appears on MSNBC, which is owned by Kabletown on the show, and calls Donaghy  (played by Alec Baldwin) “an economic war criminal.”

“If the Democratic Party controlled Congress I would see to it that he was punished in the worst way possible, by having to come down here and listen to us,” she said on the fictional news segment.

But Donaghy and the other head honchos at Kabletown are hardly fazed by the minority leader’s harsh comments. In fact, they’re thrilled.

Before turning on the news segment, one Kabletown exec excitedly tells Donaghy, “Jack, you are going to love this, you magnificent bastard.” He then points to Pelosi on the television and says, “Just look at this jackass.”

The Kabletown head honcho also applauds Donaghy for having his effigy burned down by Occupy Wall Street.

Pelosi’s appearance on the show is not random. Donaghy’s character is a conservative businessman who frequently makes fun of Pelosi, Vice-President Joe Biden, and other Democratic leaders on the show.

The Minority Leader reportedly watched the series’ finale with 40 Hollywood stars, including Barbara Streisand, at sitcom producer Norman Lear’s mansion. Mixing business with pleasure, Pelosi was there to explain the Democratic Party’s strategy to take over the House in 2014.

This is not the first time “30 Rock” has featured a well-known politician on the show. Former Vice-President Al Gore and former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice have also made appearances on “30 Rock.”

In one episode Gore dropped by to give advice on how to stay green but leaves in a rush because “a whale is in trouble.” Rice’s cameo, however, was a little more out of character. Donaghy has name dropped the former Secretary of State as his ex-girlfriend since season one and Rice finally came on the show last year to duke it out with her fake ex-flame.

Last night was “30 Rock’s” final episode, thus, Pelosi will sadly be the show’s last high profile political guest. Au revoir, “30 Rock.”

Watch Pelosi berate Donaghy Below. Her portion begins at 14:45 mark in the video.
