Watch: Pelosi Winces & Goes Speechless When She’s Nailed Over Her Coronavirus Lies
For the first time since 2017 House Speaker Nancy Pelosi appeared on Fox News and she probably won’t be back. When Fox News host Chris Wallace called her out over her February trip to Chinatown she had some issues answering the questions.
During her appearance Wallace allowed Pelosi to blame President Trump over the deaths of America caused by the coronavirus claiming that the President didn’t ask fast enough. Then Wallace questioned her about her trip to Chinatown telling people to visit, meanwhile cases of the coronavirus started to increase in the United States.
Wallace informed her that he was going to play clips of her comments and before the cameras switched Pelosi winced.
After the clips were played Pelosi claimed that she was merely trying to call out the violence against Chinese Americans because the President was calling the coronavirus the Wuhan virus. Wallace to his credit doubled down and at one point Pelosi channeled her inner Joe Biden and wasn’t sure what to say.

Pelosi also attacked Americans that are out of work and upset about the stay at home orders imposed by their governors.
“People are taking to the streets, pushing back against some of the more stringent restrictions in some states,” Wallace said during the interview, which is set to air Sunday on Fox News Channel. “Can you understand why they’re doing that?”
Pelosi responded: “No, not, not really because what we have to do is, is, is shelter in place. That is really the answer.”
“Testing. Tracing. Treatment. Shelter in place. And I do think that it’s unfortunate,” Pelosi told Wallace. “But, you know, people will do what they do. But the fact is, we’re all impatient. We all want out. But what they’re doing is really unfortunate.”
This is coming from the woman who is sheltering in place in her mansion with a refrigerator that costs more than what most people make per month stocked with $12 a pint ice cream. Give me a freaking break.
