If it was for Nancy Pelosi, Americans will not get a penny until well after November election, only because she hates it to see checks “going out with President Trump’s signature.”
Nancy Pelosi, Speaker of the House of Representatives went totally unhinged when CNN’s Wolf Blitzer pressed her on why Democrats will not accept the White House proposed coronavirus stimulus package.
“There are Americans who are being evicted from their homes, they can’t pay their rent. Many are waiting in the food lines for the first time in their lives, can you look them in the eyes, Madam Speaker, and explain to them why you don’t want to accept the President’s latest stimulus offer,” asked CNN’s Wolf Blitzer on Tuesday.
“When you say to me why I don’t accept theirs… I say why they don’t accept ours?” responded Pelosi.
Blitzer pushed back reminding Pelosi that even members of her own party like Rep. Ro Khanna have said that “People in need can’t wait until February. 1.8 trillion is significant & more than twice Obama stimulus.” Make a deal and put the ball in McConnell court.”
That’s when Pelosi flipped…
“I don’t know why you’re always an apologist – and many of your colleagues – an apologist for the Republican position,” Pelosi said to Blitzer.
“I will not let the wrong be the enemy of the right,” continued Pelosi.
“What’s wrong with 1.8 trillion dollars?” Blitzer asked.
“What makes me amused, if it weren’t so sad,” an angry Pelosi responded. “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, to represent them at that table,” continued Pelosi.
Pelosi accused Blitzer of “defending the administration all this time with no knowledge of the difference between our two bills” and added, “I thank you for giving me the opportunity to say that to you in person.”
“These are incredibly difficult times right now. We will leave it on that note,” said Blitzer.
“We will leave it on the note that you are not right on this, Wolf,” Pelosi replied, “and I hate to say that to you, but I feel confident about it and I feel confident about my colleagues and confidence in my chairs.”
