White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders called-out the House Minority Leader during Tuesday’s fiery briefing; saying she wouldn’t use “Nancy Pelosi as a legal source for anything.”
Sanders was addressing reporters when she was asked to comment on recent efforts to find alternative methods of funding the President’s border wall: including the use of monies already allocated to various executive agencies.

“Do you think that you have the legal authority? Nancy Pelosi said today that that’s not how it works,” said one reporter.
“I would never use Nancy Pelosi as my source for legal authority on probably anything. I would use attorneys that work here at the White House and agencies where that’s their entire job to determine if something’s legal,” fired-back Sanders.

“Let’s hope there won’t be a shutdown of the government. That’s a very bad thing to do, maybe the President doesn’t grasp that. That is very harmful to our country at significant cost,” said Pelosi.
“They still voted against opening up the government [the last time.] Does he want to have government closed forever? What’s this about? I know he doesn’t believe in government,” she added.
BOOK OF NANCY: Pelosi Invokes THE POPE, ROSARY During EIGHT HOUR DACA Rant
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi turned towards a higher-power during her eight-hour long speech defending DACA Wednesday, saying she should have brought her “rosary blessed by the Pope” to help Democrats pass legislation in support of nearly one million ‘Dreamers.’
Pelosi was speaking on the floor of the House when she suddenly mentioned Pope Francis and Pope Benedict, suggesting that liberal legislators should spend the day in prayer over new DACA legislation.
“During the night when I was thinking and praying so hard about our ‘Dreamers,’ I thought maybe we should just pray all day on the floor of Congress. Maybe I should bring my rosary blessed by the Pope,” said Nancy.
“I always remember Pope Benedict when he came. He spoke so beautifully,” she added. “He quoted an Augustine who seventeen centuries ago said that any government that is not formed to promote justice is just a bunch of thieves.”
“His holiness goes on to say, ‘Sometimes it’s hard to define what justice is, but in doing so we must beware of the dazzling blindness of power and special interests,” Pelosi added.
