Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi lost it after a journalist asked her a simple question.
At a press conference NBC News reporter Kelly O’Donnell asked Pelosi if when speaking to President Trump if she could “not use phrases like ‘cover-up,’ or to not, perhaps, provoke him, would you be open to that?”
In repose Pelosi immediately began to belittle O’Donnell.
“Well, you have bought into his excuse,” Pelosi said. “That was not a reason that he did that yesterday. That was an excuse for him to do that.”
Pelosi somehow managed to infer that hurling insults at the president was somehow part of her civic duty.
“And with all due respect to your question. I do not intend to not to honor my oath of office, nor do my colleagues in the House of Representatives, to honor our oath of office to protect and defend the Constitution, which has a system of checks and balances, a separation of power in it, and again, it’s a question of the American people understanding that what he is doing is an assault on the Constitution of the United States,” Pelosi said.
“We can walk and chew gum at the same time,” she added. “I hope he can too.”
