House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi barely made it through a rambling press conference this week; mispronouncing words, forgetting her lines, and stumbling over math equations as she addressed reporters at the Capitol.
Pelosi was speaking with journalists during her daily press briefing when she infamously went off script; mispronouncing “prescription drugs” and confusing the terms “debt” with “deficit.”
Pelosi’s comments come as her party’s poll numbers continue to fall ahead of the 2018 midterm elections; shrinking from a massive 15% advantage to less than one percent in recent surveys.

What's Wrong With Nancy? Pelosi Goes on Troubling Rant, Scares Reporters
Former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi held a bizarre, meandering press conference on Thursday, telling confused reporters that she understands “Wall Street” and that “the currency of the realm” is votes.
The House Minority Leader was speaking with journalists during her weekly address when she launched into her puzzling speech, veering wildly between issues such as DACA, community health centers, Wall Street, the debt ceiling, and Medicare.
“Is this more on the subject than you want to know? Stop me if it is, ok?” Pelosi asked the audience.
“As an appropriator, that’s the life I live. Intelligence and appropriations, you see, that’s my focus,” she stated. “The impression was given to us that we voted to lift the debt ceiling many times, many of us. We were kind of lectured on the importance of lifting the debt ceiling to the markets, and we know that. Yes, we know that. We’ve been lifting the debt ceiling, so if you have the votes.”
“Wall street? It’s wall street,” a confused Pelosi added. “Here the currency of the realm is the vote. You have the votes, no discussion necessary, you don’t have the votes, three months, so that’s how we got to that.”
“But, um, we have to get it passed,” said Nancy. “We have the omnibus bills, all the appropriation bills […] we have community health centers, we have extenders for Medicare, we have many items on the agenda.”
“So that is how that went,” she added.

PELOSI PANICS: Nancy BACKS OFF ‘Crumbs’ Comment as DEMS DROP in Polls
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi is backpedaling off her recent comments that labeled worker bonuses and higher wages as “pathetic crumbs” to average Americans; now claiming that Democrats are “thankful whenever workers get bonuses.”
The former Speaker of the House is changing her tune after months of “crumby” comments, with recent polls showing a surge in support for both the GOP and President Trump heading into the 2018 midterm elections.
“Certainly we are thankful whenever workers get bonuses. But it is *incredibly* telling that companies by-and-large chose to give out one-time bonuses, and not long term raises. #GOPTaxScam” tweeted Pelosi.

Nancy’s new rhetoric is in stark contrast to comments she’s repeated since earlier this year; slamming American corporations for giving workers “crumbs” from their “banquet tables” following the GOP-sponsored tax cuts.
“The bonus that corporate America received versus the crumbs that they are giving to workers to put the schmooze on is so pathetic, it’s pathetic,” she told reporters in January.
