House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi stumbled through a bizarre speech Thursday; stuttering and forgetting her words as she lashed-out at the GOP-sponsored tax cuts; saying the legislation would force more Americans “to pay more taxes in the life.”
The former Speaker of the House was answering questions from reporters during her weekly press briefing when she was asked to comment on President Trump’s widely-popular overhaul of the nation’s tax code.
“As we all know that the -uh- the Republicans have this tax cuts for the rich; 83% of the benefits going to the top 1%, 86 million middle class American families will be paying -uh- more taxes in the life, of, of the bill, and, what’s important,” said Pelosi.
“Is it increases the deficit when you add in interest on the national… on the tax cut for the cor, corporate to over two, uh, two trillion dollars added to the deficit,” she finally concluded.

ARMAGEDDON AGAIN: Pelosi Warns of a ‘CONSTITUTIONAL CRISIS’ Over FISA Memo
Former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi continued her all-out war against the House Intelligence Committee and President Trump Friday afternoon, telling reporters the President will spark a “constitutional crisis” should he use the recently released FISA memo to fire Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.
Pelosi addressed reporters just hours after Congressional leaders publicly disclosed the four-page document; showing the debunked ‘Trump Dossier’ was used by the FBI and DOJ to secure FISA warrants to spy on “at least one” senior Trump aide.
“With the memo… [Trump] has abdicated his responsibilities as Commander-in Chief to protect the American people by protecting our intelligence sources and the rest,” Pelosi told CBS News.
“If the President uses this fake, horrible release of distorted intelligence as an excuse to fire [Deputy Attorney General Rod] Rosenstein or [special counsel Robert] Mueller, it could lead to a constitutional crisis.”
The House Minority Leader’s fiery rhetoric comes on the heels of her official statement regarding the memo, where she bizarrely referred to the de-classified material as a “bouquet” from President Trump to Vladimir Putin.
CRUMBS ACT: House Republicans Unveil PELOSI INSPIRED Bonus Bill
House Republicans are poised to introduce the Nancy Pelosi-inspired ‘Crumbs Act’ this week; unveiling new legislation that would make bonuses and other one-time payouts to American workers tax free.
Congressman Todd Rokita announced the proposal, called Creating Relief and Useful Middle-Class Benefits and Savings -also known as the CRUMB Act- Tuesday, a clear reference to House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s infamous swipe at millions of Americans who received an annual bonus following the passage of the GOP tax cut legislation.
“Americans are receiving thousands of dollars in bonuses and more money in their paychecks thanks to President Trump’s tax reform, but out-of-touch Democratic leaders believe they only amount to crumbs,” Rokita said in a statement.
“The CRUMBS Act will let Americans keep more of the money they receive as a result of President Trump’s tax reform, and allow them, not the government, to choose how best to spend their bonuses,” he added.
The former Speaker of the House repeatedly denounced the bonuses and higher wages as “pathetic crumbs” after President Trump signed the sweeping tax overhaul into law; slamming the major cuts as a “scram” for working families.
