Right after the 81-year-old Speaker announced she was running for reelection, Nancy Pelosi stumbled into Bidenland with more unintelligible ramblings. For those keeping score at home, Pelosi might edge out Biden in the Demented Politicians Olympics as a result of her uncoordinated flailing arms. Gesticulation gives her the edge and the gold.
At this latest presser, Pelosi was asked a straightforward question about Build Back Better and the inevitable inflationary spike that is now harming regular folks. There is talk of Joe Manchin, Bernie Sanders, and this entire paragraph of sheer confusion:
“So, we are getting some Byrd and privilege. I think mostly we’re getting privilege scrub because privilege scrub is deadly to a bill. Byrd? Well, it’s important. You have to take it out, but a privilege violation can take you out. So, we’re, again, getting that as we go along as well. But when we pass a bill, then they will see it in its aggregate and…”
Does that make sense to you? It certainly doesn’t make sense to me, and it didn’t make any sense to the commendable journalist who actually asked what the hell Pelosi was talking about. The follow-up question predictably didn’t lead to any clarification, the compounded result of not just standard political obfuscation and hollow talking points but the spread of plaque all over her shrinking brain. Still, it gave Pelosi more time to look and sound like the fool she is.
Viewer warning: You might get dumber listening to this embarrassing response. She might need a new title; Speaker of the House conveys the ability of Nancy to actually speak intelligibly.
