House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is the Democrats’ choice for Speaker when they officially take back power in January.
And looking at this video, one really has to wonder.
On Thursday, Pelosi was speaking of her opposition to the border wall which she termed “immoral.” Yet she was trying to make it appear that she was not too extreme and still cared about borders.
But in the process, she seemed to have some difficulty with U.S. geography.
From American Mirror:
“We, most of us, speaking for myself, consider the wall immoral, ineffective and expensive, and the President said – he promised – he also promised Mexico would pay for it,” Pelosi said. [….]
“We have a responsibility, all of us, to secure our borders, North, South, and coming in by plane on our coasts, three coasts–North, South and West–and that’s the responsibility we honor. But we do so by honoring our values as well.”
This is the person Democrats will have as Speaker? One who seems confused about what our coasts are?
And this is just the latest of her many, many gaffes.
She thinks there are three coasts including the North and Congresswoman-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez thinks there are three chambers of Congress.
Guess this is what Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-HI) meant when she said that Democrats were just so smart they tended not to connect with voters.
These are the Democrats, who are taking over the House leadership.
God help us all.
