Total Pelosi MELTDOWN: Suffers 16 Brain Freezes During Latest 15 Minute Press Conference [WATCH]
Many have been concerned, even in the Democrat party, about how Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has acted bizarrely on camera for over a year now, but this latest press conference might be what causes her to resign.
Pelosi suffered 16 brain freezes during a 15-minute appearance at her weekly press conference Thursday.
Pelosi, 77, repeatedly stumbled and appeared to be at a loss for words.
At some moments, she could be seen staring blankly as she tried to collect her thoughts.
“This week we had … March 5th … marked the 6th month — the end of the … time frame,” Pelosi stumbled, attempting to explain the expiration of President Trump’s deadline on reforming Deferred Action Against Childhood Arrivals, or DACA and the urgency of resolving the issue.
Addressing a question on the fracturing within the Democratic Party, Pelosi began, “The most exhilarating …” but then struggled to find her next word. Finally she settled on “thrill,” and went on to say that the various competing fractions within her party make it exciting.
Discussing a Senate bill that would reform Dodd-Frank, Pelosi said, “You might say, How do we help communities banks, …um, how do we help,… um …” and then Pelosi completely forgot what she was trying to say.
On more than six occasions, Pelosi has confused President Trump with former President George W. Bush. One of the most recent cases happened in February, when she told reporters: “This is a cover-up by the Republicans to protect President Bush – excuse me – President Trump in this investigation.”
Just weeks ago, Pelosi proposed what she believed to be a better solution than President Trump’s wall to stop the influx of illegal immigrants across the U.S.-Mexico border: “Mowing the grass.”
WND reports further decline:
“I’m not the wall’s biggest advocate in Congress,” Pelosi told the Arizona Republic. “But I do know that representatives in the House and Senators in that body from the border areas have some serious objections to a wall because they know how detrimental it can be to the community trade, to all other aspects of a border.
“But again, let’s sit down and talk this though about what makes sense, not some commitment to a promise that we’re going to build a wall and Mexico is going to pay for it. That’s never going to happen,” she continued.
“Let’s talk about where a more serious structure might be necessary, where fencing will do or mowing the grass so that people can’t be smuggled through the grass. That’s something – levies, technology, personnel …”
In October, WND reported Rep. Pelosi experienced other episodes during which she couldn’t finish a sentence.
As she addressed the Las Vegas massacre and pushed gun control, Pelosi became lost for words.
“Responsible gun owners from the hills of Arizona to the duck blinds of Minnesota, all over, say, ‘We’re all law-abiding, we have many guns, we have as many guns as he had, but we have,’ uh, we have, um, uh,” she said before turning to CNN town hall moderator Chris Cuomo and repeatedly waving her hands.
“Background checks,” she finally exclaimed.
READ: Democrats Call For Pelosi To Step Down As She Exhibits MORE Bizarre Behavior On Camera [WATCH]
Nancy Pelosi and her ongoing bizarre behavior have many high ranking Democrats calling for her to step down and that escalated this week when she repeatedly used incorrect words in another press conference.
As Pelosi spoke to reporters earlier this month, she repeatedly used the wrong words in sentences, awkwardly correcting herself so she was clear to the journalists.
Speaking about new gun control legislation, she said there is a “commensurate bipartisan — common sense bipartisan supp, uh, path forward.”
Moments later, she repeated words and mistakenly said “tax force,” before enunciating “task force.”
Calls have been going on for months, some by high ranking Democrats, for Pelosi to step down from leadership and even retire all together.
Late last year, high ranking House Democrat Rep. Linda Sanchez of California called on Pelosi to step down as Minority leader to make way for a new generation.
“Our leadership does a tremendous job,” Sanchez said.
“But I do think we have this real breadth and depth of talent within our caucus. I do think it’s time to pass the torch to a new generation of leaders. I want to be a part of that transition and I want to see that happen.”
So when does she get so bad they take her offstage with the cane? Time will tell.
