House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi raised even more questions about her health when she had seven bizarre seizures and brain freezes in the first minute of the speech she gave on Tuesday.
“Thank you very much Mr. Speaker. I’m very delighted to join my colleagues, uh, from— the Bay Area. Congresswoman Barbara Lee in wearing the blue and the gold, uh, to celebrate the new American dynasty, the Golden State Warriors,” she began, according to Infowars.
Things only went downhill from there…
“On Friday, as you probably know, the Warriors swept the great team, the Cleveland Cavaliers, led by LeBron James. What a magnificent athlete, all the more making the victory, uh, so sweet to secure the 2018 NBA championship. Their third title, the Warriors third title in three years,” Pelosi erroneously claimed, as the Warriors actually won the championship in 2016.
“This historic achievement secures Golden State’s position— is not only, is not only the best team in the sport, but is an extraordinary force in ushering in a new era of professional basketball and transforming the future of the sport,” she said.
“The Golden State Warriors are distinguished both by their talent, and their extraordinary teamwork,” she said before going on to mispronounce Kevin Durant’s name.
Pelosi then said that the players “each played with extraordinary skill, strength, and determination, each making history in the each— in their own way,” she corrected herself.
The first minute of this speech is painful to watch, and after seeing this, it’s no wonder that even many Democrats see Pelosi as a huge liability to their party now. Over the past few months, many Democrat lawmakers have called on Pelosi to step down so that new leadership could be put in place.
“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.
