Nancy Pelosi freezes during question on hot mic
Nancy Pelosi planned to talk about a bailout for Puerto Rico today, but a reporter wanted her opinion on a “gun legislation” issue instead.
The House Minority Leader couldn’t hide her lack of knowledge of the question.
While addressing reporters today , Pelosi muttered “oh God” into an open mic while a reporter was asking about the bill.
“Madame Leader, I’d like to get your thoughts on some gun legislation moving toward the floor…” the reporter began.
“Oh God,” Pelosi said.
“Yeah,” she muttered to herself when the reporter said the bill would “deregulate silencers and undermine concealed carry laws.”
“Well, in addition to that, it’s the silencers, it’s the, uh, conceal and carry,” Pelosi said, repeating what the reporter just said, “and it’s also, uh, uh,” she continued, before suffering a brain freeze for several awkward moments, before blurting out, “pier— uh, um, armor-piercing bullets.”
May I remind you that this woman was Speaker of the House during the Obama administration. For those of you that went through public education with little or any US History classes that is third in line for the Presidency.
One reason she may not have wanted to talk about guns is because the National Rifle Association has a higher approval rating than Congress. Last year the NRA enjoyed a 42 percent approval rating, according to NBC. The job approval of Congress sits at a pitiful 8 percent, according to an Economist poll.
Pelosi approval sits at 26 percent the poll reveals. The main reason Nancy Pelosi remains the top Democrat is her fundraising ability. I believe the Democrats have to see she is a complete moron. But she brought in over 26 million in 2017 alone in 2017. Politics today is not about knowledge, ethics or regard for the country. It is about fundraising and power. Until that changes we get morons like Nancy Pelosi running the Congress.
