(TeaParty.org Exclusive) – House Speaker Nancy Pelosi seems to be becoming more and more unhinged the closer we get to the November election. Which isn’t surprising, given the fact she’s probably lost years off of her life organizing the various assaults the House launched at President Trump this year.
However, it’s unusual to see Pelosi receive pushback from the mainstream media. Especially someone like Wolf Blitzer at CNN, the most obvious and openly hateful news outlet against President Trump currently on the air.
According to a report by BizPacReview, Pelosi appeared on Blitzer’s program where she accused him of being an “apologist for the Republican position” after he asked her why she has repeatedly turned down President Trump’s $1.8 trillion COVID-19 relief bill. This piece of legislation would actually approve another round of stimulus checks that would be sent out immediately to millions of Americans who are struggling financially in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.
“I don’t know why you’re always an apologist — and many of your [CNN] colleagues are apologists — for the Republican position,” Pelosi snapped at the CNN anchor. “With all due respect, and we’ve known each other a long time, you really don’t know what you’re talking about.”
Maybe Pelosi was just having a really bad day or something? One has to wonder if she’s feeling a little ticked off at how well Judge Amy Coney Barrett is doing in her confirmation hearing before the Senate, fearing she’s going to be appointed to the court before the election on November 3rd.
Pelosi doesn’t seem too happy with the accusation that she’s the reason much needed stimulus checks aren’t getting approved and sent out to those who need them. After all, the meltdown she had on live television came after Blitzer asked why she hadn’t approved the president’s bill, especially when other Democrats like Rep. Ro Khanna have urged her to accept the deal.
“Many Americans are waiting in food lines for the first time in their lives. Can you look them in the eye and explain why you don’t want to accept the President’s latest stimulus offer? They really need the money right now…Even members of your own caucus want to accept this deal, $1.8 trillion,” Blitzer stated.
Pelosi wasn’t having any of this, dismissing the comments made by her colleagues, saying, “Ro Khanna, that’s nice [that he said we should accept Trump’s offer]. But that isn’t what we’re going to do. Andrew Yang is lovely. Ro Khanna is lovely. They are not negotiating this situation. They have no idea of the particulars. They have no idea of what the language is here.”
Blitzer kept pushing, asking, “What’s wrong with $1.8 trillion dollars?”
That’s when Pelosi accused Blitzer of being an “apologist” for the Republican Party. Blitzer paid the comment no mind and said, “I’m asking you serious questions because so many people are in serious issue right now.”
Blitzer then asked when Pelosi last spoke with the president, followed by asking her why she wouldn’t speak to Trump directly in order to approve a stimulus bill that would help Americans.
This really seemed to tick her off: “What makes me amused, if it weren’t so sad, is how you all think that you know more about the suffering of the American people than those of us who are elected by them…With all due respect, you really don’t know what you’re talking about.”
“Have some level of respect for the people who have worked on these issues,” the speaker said.
“Madam Speaker, I certainly respect you. But I also respect Ro Khanna. I respect Andrew Yang. They want a deal because so many people right now are suffering,” Blitzer said in response to the harsh comments from Pelosi.
“You evidently do not respect the chairman of the committees who wrote these bills and I wish you would respect the knowledge that goes into meeting the needs of the American people,” Pelosi fired back.
She went on to accuse the CNN anchor of “defending the Trump administration all this time with no knowledge of the difference between our two bills.”
“It’s not about me. It’s about millions of people who can’t put food on the table, who can’t pay rent…I am sensitive to them, because I see them on the street begging for food, begging for money,” Blitzer finished.
The bottom line is, Republicans have been bending over backwards to try and get stimulus packages signed into law so some sort of relief would reach Americans who have suffered financially as a result of COVID-19 and the subsequent shutdowns that nearly crippled our economy.
Democrats are politicizing this whole thing as a means of getting items on their socialist wish list passed into law. If Pelosi really cares about people, she’ll sign the bill into law. Plain and simple.
