House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was on CNN yesterday afternoon speaking to Wolf Blitzer when their conversation got fiery. They were speaking about COVID relief/stimulus packages where Blitzer challenged her on what the hold up was with the COVID stimulus packages. Blitzer asked Pelosi why she would not accept the $1.8 trillion dollar package that was offered up by Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin, which by the way is $400 billion less than the relief legislation that the House passed earlier in the month. Blitzer doubled down on Pelosi, saying: "Americans really need the money right now...even members of your own Caucus, Madam Speaker want to accept this deal". Pelosi fired back at Blitzer saying this: “I don’t know why you’re always an apologist — and many of your colleagues, apologists for the Republican position."
Oh yeah, Wolf Blitzer and all those Republican apologists at CNN...spot on Nancy...give me a break. Furthermore Pelosi went on during the conversation to "mansplain" to Wolf Blitzer about why Andrew Yang and Rep. Ro Khanna don't know what they are talking about. Blitzer was trying to interject into the conversation and tell Pelosi that he spoke to Andrew Yang yesterday who said the stimulus package does not have everything you want, but there is something there so why not accept it. Pelosi got fired up thus started "mansplaining" to Wolf Blitzer about while they are "lovely", they are not the ones negotiating this situation. Listen:
Well that's interesting...can you imagine if a man acted that way to Nancy Pelosi? That man would be ripped apart for talking down to a woman and "mansplaining" but it's okay for Pelosi to have a holier than thou attitude towards Wolf Blitzer, that's okay? Quite interesting the times we are in...
