Even CNN can’t save Nancy Pelosi from the mess that she’s gotten herself into.
So she’s throwing her friends in the mainstream media under the bus.
Nancy Pelosi had a public mental breakdown when CNN asked her this question.
CNN has made it their full-time job to help the Democratic Party.
They’ll avoid running any stories that criticize Democrats and even try and spin Democratic scandals in the most positive light.
Nancy Pelosi is so used to getting special treatment from the mainstream media that she didn’t know how to deal with it when she was asked a valid question.
CNN’s Wolf Blitzer asked Pelosi why she and Trump couldn’t make a deal for a coronavirus stimulus bill.
Blitzer reminded Pelosi that she had written to other Democrats in the House telling them “the president only wants his name on a check to go out before Election Day and for the market to go up.”
He then asked Pelosi, “Is that what this is all about? To not allow the president to take credit that there’s a deal that will help millions of Americans right now?”
Of course, that is exactly why Democrats are working to keep any coronavirus stimulus from happening and Pelosi was caught off-guard without a good answer and started attacking Blitzer.
“I don’t care about that. He’s not that important. But let me say this, with all due respect, you really don’t know what you are talking about.” Pelosi replied.
Blitzer said of Americans, “They really need the money right now, and even members of your own caucus, Madame Speaker, wanted to accept this deal. 1.8 trillion dollars; Congressman Ro Khanna, a man you know well, I assume you admire him, he’s a Democrat, and he just said this, he said, ‘People in need can’t wait until February. 1.8 trillion is significant & more than twice the Obama stimulus — make a deal & put the ball in the McConnell court.’ So what do you say to Ro Khanna?”
Pelosi then accused Wolf Blitzer of being a Republican apologist.
“What I say to you is, I don’t know, you’re always an apologist,” an irate Pelosi snarled. “And many of your colleagues, apologists for the Republican position. Ro Khanna: that’s nice. That isn’t what we’re going to do. And nobody’s waiting until February.”
“I want this very much now,” Pelosi claimed. “Because people need help now. It’s no use giving them a false thing just because the president wants to put a check with his name on it in the mail that we should not be doing all we can to help people pay the rent, put food on the table then enhance benefits that they don’t lose their jobs if they’re state and local. We’re talking about the consequences of a pandemic. The symptoms of a problem that the president refuses to address. And that is the coronavirus. That is the coronavirus.”
It’s insane that Democrats will now attack news hosts for asking them any questions that are difficult. It’s the job of journalists to ask tough questions and Democrats shouldn’t expect to get a free pass every single time.
