The man, the myth, the legend.
This YouTuber calls himself “Armando” or “Mando” and decided to live-stream himself taking a dump on Pelosi’s driveway on Saturday in the name of peaceful protesting.
Can you imagine witnessing this in real time? The man literally set up his camera ACROSS THE STREET from her house, proceeded to enter the frame by walking into her driveway, he saluted his viewers, then dropped his trousers to defecate.
That’s next level confidence. Even in public restrooms, I will sit there for a good while until I know the bathroom is completely empty. I call it the poop standoff.
Oh, furthermore, when Mando pinched it off, he stated, “That was for President Trump.” According to online sources, Mando stated that he thinks his joke went too far.
Yes, I think we can all agree that it wasn’t the most productive way to handle it, but they are the ones who decriminalized defecating and urinating in the streets.
The New York Post reported:
The 28-year-old said he’s part of a niche YouTube community that creates “IRL” or “in real life” livestream videos chronicling long stretches of unfiltered daily life.
He began the channel after he became homeless six years ago, and hoped to show his viewers the realities of living on the street as he traveled from city to city.
Once the coronavirus lockdowns began, Mando found it increasingly challenging to even find an open restroom anymore.
As a result, Saturday’s livestream video, titled “Poopalosi,” began as a protest against a lack of resources for people living on the streets — while people in power, such as Pelosi, are able to get haircuts and live their daily lives fairly unchanged.

“I’d been hunting for a toilet all week, and the joke came up in the comments on one of my streams that ‘Hey, you should take a crap at Pelosi’s house,’” Mando told The Post.
“Everyone was enjoying the idea of it, and eventually I just couldn’t hold it anymore.”
He couldn’t hold it in anymore? The idea, or the turd? I don’t really care either way, but that was pretty funny to read.

Mando did send out a tweet to Nancy Pelosi to apologize for his actions, saying, “@SpeakerPelosi I know you may not ever see this but I want you to know, I meant no foul harm yesterday when I did what I did. I’m not proud of it at all and I just would like for you to know that. I have no ill will against you or anyone in an elected officials position.”
