House Speaker Nancy Pelosi may be tagged with all the stereotypes some elderly white men hang on women. Yet, they should realize that the speaker is tough, really tough. Not only is she the first woman to become speaker, she is the only person in the country to have ever earned that title. Watch out below.
The GOP leadership danced around a question about whether Trump was investigating his “campaign rival” when he pressured Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to come up with dirt on former vice president Joe Biden and his son:
‘Exact quote from @GOPLeader in response to question of whether it was ok for Trump to ask foreign countries to investigate a campaign rival: “The president wasn’t investigating a campaign rival.”‘
Speaker Pelosi replied that the impeachment inquiry was “deadly serious.” She warned Republicans to “end their stunts, adding that this was about the Constitution:
‘Our inquiry is deadly serious. Our Republican colleagues should end their stunts, consult their oaths, and answer this simple question honestly to the American people: is it acceptable for the President to ask a foreign country to investigate his political rivals? #TruthExposed’
Pelosi was born into a political family. Both her father and her brother were Baltimore, Maryland mayors, and her father was also a Democratic congressman. The speaker’s mother was an activist organizing Democratic women. Plus, Pelosi has six older brothers.
