Watch: Pelosi Gets Caught Playing Games & Crumbles During Interview
Pelosi had no answers when she was called out over her recent behavior after she showed the world just how tone-deaf she is.
In a rare moment of journalism Pelosi stonewalled questions from a CNN reporter on Sunday.
“Pelosi wouldn’t answer my question about why the $900 billion deal is more acceptable to her than the $1.8 trillion offer Mnuchin made to her this fall,” CNN’s Manu Raju said. “Pelosi wouldn’t call on me at the press conference, which is becoming a pattern, even though just five reporters were there. She left the press conference as I asked her the question. And she ignored my question in the hallway as well.”
“Asked again in the hallways why this proposal is more acceptable than the Mnuchin plan, Pelosi didn’t respond. But Schumer, who was walking with her in the hallway, said: ‘Ask Mitch McConnell,’” Raju continued. “It’s true that McConnell and Senate Republicans objected to Mnuchin’s $1.8 trillion plan, but so did Pelosi, who said in October: ‘This proposal amounted to one step forward, two steps back.’”
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell announced Sunday that he was finally able to get Democrats in the House to sign off on the COVID relief bill. McConnell also went after Pelosi for stalling for months all because of the election.
“There is no doubt this new agreement contains input from our Democratic colleagues. It is bipartisan. But these matters could have been settled long ago,” McConnell said. “So why did it take all this time? We know why. We have heard Democrats say openly that they were not willing to deal all summer and fall, but are willing now, because they now have a President-elect of their own political party. That’s not my accusation … that’s their admission.”
Pelosi said “nothing was better than something” and has openly admitted her delay was about impacting the Presidential election.
There is one person responsible for this delay, and she’s proud of it.

Then during a floor speech, Pelosi claimed she would have liked more stimulus money for families but $600 is enough. What has everyone so furious is she could have had more stimulus money, the President’s plan was more but she didn’t want to give Trump a victory so close to the election.
