Former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi came under fire from both Republicans and fellow Democrats over the weekend, after she stumbled through an interview where she failed to criticize a liberal “icon” at the center of a widening sex scandal, saying he deserves “due process.”
Pelosi was speaking with NBC’s ‘Meet the Press’ on Sunday when the California Congresswoman was pressed on accusations of sexual misconduct against senior Democrat John Conyers.
The House Minority Leader referred to the disgraced Democrat as a political “icon,” refused to call for his resignation, and then bizarrely called the movement against sexual harassers “transformative” and “refreshing.”
“I’m trying to think of a political interview in recent history that’s been as damaging to a politician, simply because she was so unprepared and could not answer questions about a huge crisis that is sweeping across the nation and so many industries, not just politics,” said one Republican strategist.
