House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi raised even more questions about her health on Thursday with a truly bizarre press conference.
The American Mirror reported that during her weekly press conference, Pelosi could be seen uttering gibberish, bizarrely laughing and staring off mid-sentence before re-engaging the press during the appearance. She strangely accused American farmers of “self-inflicted damage,” resulting from proposed tariffs by the Trump administration, before having to fix the statement she read from her notes.
“Farmers are struggling with plummeting prices, great economic uncertainty, and self-inflicted damage of the Trump tariffs. I say self, self— for our country,” she said before she started to have trouble getting the words out.
“Republicans wrote a bill that abandons farmers, uh, uh, fam— farming families. It weakens, the farmers’ safety net…” Pelosi accused.
Later, while discussing food stamps, Pelosi said, “1.5 million veterans,” stopping and staring amid a brain freeze, before continuing, “are involved in the nutrition program.” She then claimed that Republican priority is “taking the food out of the mouths of babies,” before turning to prescription drugs, saying, “President Trump’s monthl— month, months-delayed speech on prescription drugs…”
When she talked about the Democratic victory back in 2006, she said they had six agenda items, but only held up five fingers. After suffering another brain freeze, she blurted out “possibility.”
When a reporter asked her another question, Pelosi answered in gibberish before finally saying, “Are you confident in the White House?” before saying, “Next,” and bursting into a strange laugh.
Appearances like this are partly why even many Democrats are calling on Pelosi to step down.
“We need leadership change,” New York Democratic Rep. Kathleen Rice recently said. “It’s time for Nancy Pelosi to go, and the entire leadership team.”
Massachusetts Democratic Rep. Seth Moulton agreed with her.
“This is certainly something that we have to discuss because it’s clear that, I think, across the board in the Democratic Party we need new leadership. It’s time for a new generation of leadership in the party,” he said.
