What is wrong with Nancy Pelosi?
The House Minority Leader — and presumptive Speaker of the House if Democrats retake the majority this November — displayed more bizarre behavior for reporters on Thursday as she held her weekly press conference.
Pelosi suffered brain freezes, speech problems and confused Russia and China at least twice.
While attacking Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh, Pelosi had trouble saying “effectively.”
“His kowtowing to the president, esffect, esffectively saying…” she said.
Moments later, while attacking the Trump tax cut, she said, “…the GOP tax scam for the rich that added 2 children dollars more” to the deficit.
Pelosi suffered more speech problems as she was criticizing Trump.
“The president said he was going to move for negotiation, ‘I’m going to nego— negotiate,’ what was it,” she asked a staffer. “Like crazy,” she continued after prompting.
“Families across America are getting a raw deal from the Republicans. Democrats are pres— prosing a better deal,” she said.
After having trouble saying “Tienanmen” Square, she confused America’s adversaries.
“Instead of empowering the Russians, excuse me the Chinese in this case, instead of empowering the Chinese to, um,” she said, suffering a brain freeze, “hurt our industries,” she continued.
Moments later, she confused the countries again.
Talking about the trade deficit, she said, “It’s 80% of our products going into Russia— China, it just is, it’s just wrong.”
Pelosi suffered an extended brain freeze as she discussed Trump’s behavior.
After pulling out of it, she announced, “What do the Russians have on Donald Trump politically, financially,” delaying, before adding, “and personally.”
She was hit by yet another freeze before the 20-minute appearance concluded.
Will Democrats ever address what appears to be afflicting their leader?
