LATE-NIGHT LUNATIC: Pelosi Predicts Dems Will Sweep Midterms During Colbert Appearance

What’s in that coffee cup, Nancy?

During her appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert,  Speaker Nancy Pelosi made some pretty bold predictions about the upcoming midterm elections; she also took shots at former President Donald Trump.

“I believe that we will hold the House,” Pelosi said as the audience roared with applause. “We will hold the House by winning more seats. We won the 40 seats, then we lost some when Trump was on the ballot, we lost some on the Trump districts, but we held enough seats to hold the House with him on the ballot. He’s not on the ballot now.”

Pelosi then poked fun at Trump by apologizing for saying his name: “Oh, did I say his name? I didn’t mean to,” she said while holding her hand to her chest.

“We’ll have the videotapes fumigated,” Colbert replied.

“Perhaps you can bleep that out,” she added.

Colbert pressed Pelosi on why she felt so confident about the Democrats’ chances in the midterm elections.

“The greatest influx of candidates came forward [after January 6th], young people, people of color, people of different generations, different backgrounds and the rest. The beautiful diversity of America came forward. They didn’t pay attention to those pundits who said, ‘You can’t win,'” Pelosi reasoned.
