House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) is stuck in 2007 — or her short term memory is seriously slipping. She keeps confusing Donald Trump with George W. Bush.
Pelosi, 77, really embarrassed herself yesterday as she seemed confused and unaware of what she was saying while she questioned President Trump’s health. During a press briefing, she again referred to “President Bush” when she was discussing Trump. Pelosi may have had Bush on the brain because she said earlier on “Morning Joe” that she wished the 43rd president was in the White House now.
Explaining what she sees a Trump’s method for handling people, Pelosi said, “New Yorkers have said to me, those who have had business dealings with him, he operates this way:
“First, he tries to charm you,” Pelosi said of Trump. “President Bush tries to charm you. If that doesn’t work, he tries to bully you. If that doesn’t work, he walks away.”
One reporter interrupted to say “Trump” to correct her, but Pelosi did not pick up on it.
A few minutes later, someone walked to the podium and handed the minority leader a piece of paper, apparently letting her know of the mistake.
“I said President Bush? I’m sorry, I meant to say—it’s hard for me to say it,” Pelosi said. “Poor President Bush. I apologize.”
She also struggled to speak afterwards because she forgot what she was talking about…
On Feb. 6, Pelosi said shortly after Trump took office that she saw no part of the White House agenda that she could work with “President Bush” on.
In an interview on ABC’s “This Week” on April 30, she made the mistake again and apologized to Bush, joking she wished Bush was president again.
We don’t know about President Trump as he seems fine, but Nancy Pelosi definitely needs a check up after saying that. She’s always confusing agencies, people and places. Does she even know what planet she’s on?
