Something is obviously wrong with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and her latest speech proves that. Pelosi has previously been rather well spoken on the stage and that has changed dramatically.
Is it a stroke? Who knows as mum is the word around Pelosi, but it is blatant that her days in Congress are numbered.
During Pelosi’s 7-minute speech to Refugees International, she garbled names, other words and even mispronounced countries, and looked sometimes lost.
The American Mirror gives a breakdown:
She congratulated honorees for their well-deserved “resc — recognition.”
Pelosi complimented Refugees International’s “strong moral varce — voice.”
She said America “degrades our values and our security when we slam the door in the face of children freeing — fleeing atrocities.”
She botched country names as she read them from her notes.
“With the specter of famine looming in, over northeast Nigeria, Somalia, south “Sudon,” and “Yuma — Yamen,” she said, flubbing “Yemen.”
Pelosi asserted cutting the foreign aid budget would “only deepen the crisis fighting — facing the children.”
“Children, America, children need America to be their champion,” she said moments later.
Pelosi thanked Refugees International for “channeling — challenging us to honor our values.”
Just over 7 minutes after she started, Pelosi thanked the group for the invitation, stood and stared awkwardly, then made her way off the stage.
I have almost 4 decades of public speaking experience. Slips of the tongue and brain farts are a part of the nature of the beast. But this is off the charts. To go from eloquent to barely able to read your notes is proof that something is gravely wrong.
This has been going on for a couple months, but it has definitely gotten worse. In February, Nancy gave this bizarre speech for Families USA, a group of activists who are fighting the repeal of Obamacare. She not only repeated herself multiple times, but she slurred through some words and forgot which state John Kasich was governor of.
When Pelosi attempted to butter up the audience by heaping praise on Families USA, no one clapped after she congratulated them for her work.
She then tried to jump start the applause: “When I said we could not have done it without Families USA, that is an applause line for you.”
Then she stated the nonsensical, “By the way, do you know who the poorest people in America are? Infants and children. Infants and children,”.
When Pelosi attempted to show support for Medicaid, she said, “Don’t take it from me. John Kasich, the Governor of Illinois said, ‘Thank God for Medicaid.’”
Kasich is Governor of Ohio.
Pelosi garbled MLK’s name, calling him “Martin Luther Sing.”
This speech began to make people question Pelosi’s health, but the recent speech is definite proof that she has a serious issue of some kind.
If she had a stroke, you would expect her speech to improve over time, and not get worse. So what exactly is wrong? I predict that she will try to stay away from cameras if this continues, something very difficult for her to do.
Of course, it could be that she is just so upset about Trump that she has gone crazy. But then, she has always been crazy…yes? LOL!
