What’s wrong with Nancy Pelosi?
During her weekly press conference, the House Minority Leader — whom some speculate will be the next Speaker of the House if Democrats recapture the majority this November — was seen uttering gibberish, bizarrely laughing and staring off mid-sentence before re-engaging the press during the appearance.
Pelosi accused U.S. farmers of “self-inflicted damage,” resulting from proposed tariffs by the Trump administration, before having to fix the statement she read from her notes.
“Farmers are struggling with plummeting prices, great economic uncertainty, and self-inflicted damage of the Trump tariffs. I say self, self— for our country,” she said.
Then she had trouble even getting the words out of her mouth.
“Republicans wrote a bill that abandons farmers, uh, uh, fam— farming families. It weakens, the farmers’ safety net…” Pelosi accused.
Talk about food stamps, she said, “1.5 million veterans,” stopping and staring amid a brain freeze, before continuing, “are involved in the nutrition program.”
After claiming a Republican priority is “taking the food out of the mouths of babies,” she turned to prescription drugs, saying, “President Trump’s monthl— month, months-delayed speech on prescription drugs…”
Recalling the Democrats’ victory in 2006, she said the party had six agenda items, but only held up five fingers.
Pelosi suffered another brain freeze, finally blurting out “possibility”.
Attempting to answer a reporter’s question, Pelosi offered gibberish, before finally saying, “Are you confident in the White House?” before saying, “Next,” and bursting into a strange laugh.
Concluding her remarks, Pelosi said, “Thank you, bye bye.”
