Kellyanne Conway Called Speaker Nancy Pelosi OLD
After Nancy Pelosi took her Speakers Gavel back, she immediately began attacking the President.
Kellyanne Conway responded, calling the speaker old!
“The incoming Speaker — to come in and say to try to insult the president personally is very poor form,” Ms. Conway told Fox News.
“Nothing really screams youth and energy like a 78-year-old speaker and Joe Biden running for president,” she added, taking a swipe at the Democratic Party leadership.
Conway said that it was “poor form” for the incoming Speaker of the House to personally attack President Trump.
She was responding to Ms. Pelosi’s interview with NBC that aired Thursday morning, hours ahead of her expected vote to become the 63rd Speaker of the House.
“I don’t know if he [Trump] knows how to deal with women in power and women with strength, but we’ll see. Let’s hope for the best in that regard,” Ms. Pelosi said.
Conway dismissed Pelosi’s comments, citing the number of women he has placed in the administration.
Pelosi turns 79 in March.
The next few months should be rather interesting. During the last few years, Nancy Pelosi has had a series of press conferences that were rather embarrassing, causing some to speculate that she was losing it.
She has slurred words, mixed up Presidents, and seemed at times to just lose all train of thought.
In one conference, while addressing reporters, Pelosi lost her breath during several short sentences, suffered more brain freezes and could be seen staring blankly at reporters, while also frequently repeating words.
Pelosi got tongue-tied as she welcomed Conor Lamb to the House as she flubbed his name and was forced to repeat it. At the same time, she appeared to run out of breath while speaking the short sentence, having to take a deep breath to finish.
While again disparaging the tax cut passed last year, she forgot words as she said “83 of the benefits to the top 1%.”
She would repeat words, and it didn’t seem like it was for effect.
“Seven in 10 will not sh— hire new employees. Seven in 10 will not hire new employees,” she repeated.
Pelosi suffered 16 brain freezes during a 15-minute appearance at one of her weekly press conferences. She 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.
Bizarre press conferences have become the norm for Pelosi, and it created multiple calls for her to step down. Even many of her high ranking colleagues had joined in the calls.
Rep. Linda Sánchez from California, the fifth-most-senior House Democrat, has since called for Pelosi to step down and ‘pass the torch’.
“I do think it’s time to pass a torch to a new generation of leaders, and I want to be a part of that transition. I think we have too many great members here that don’t always get the opportunities that they should.”
But in the end, Pelosi won. She has been voted in as the new Speaker of the House….
Should be an interesting year. We will keep you up-dated.
