Constant flubs at the microphone are not a laughing matter. While those that speak at the microphone constantly will have a slip up or two here and there, a constant pattern of missteps tends to sound the alarm bells.
That’s the situation that’s afoot for House minority leader Nancy Pelosi, and it’s long moved away from the neighborhood of a laughing matter.
The American Mirror shares the details on her latest troubles.
Nancy Pelosi wanted to talk about a bailout for Puerto Rico today, but a reporter wanted her opinion on “gun legislation” moving through Congress instead.
The House Minority Leader couldn’t hide her disdain for — or fear of — the question.
While addressing reporters today, Pelosi muttered “oh God” into a hot mic while a reporter was asking about the bill.
That’s certainly an off-putting sentiment to hear from an elected official that didn’t appear to want any part of the issue that was being brought up, but there’s even more to see here.
“Madame Leader, I’d like to get your thoughts on some gun legislation moving toward the floor…” the reporter began.
“Oh God,” Pelosi said.
“Yeah,” she muttered to herself when the reporter said the bill would “deregulate silencers and undermine concealed carry laws.”
“Well, in addition to that, it’s the silencers, it’s the, uh, conceal and carry,” Pelosi said, repeating what the reporter just said, “and it’s also, uh, uh,” she continued, before suffering a brain freeze for several awkward moments, before blurting out, “pier— uh, um, armor-piercing bullets.”
While speculation is always a dangerous game, it’s hard not to do that here.
Was Pelosi flustered by a question she wasn’t prepared for? Was her stumbling over words a further indication that she wants no part of dealing with questions on that particular issue? Does she need a break?
We’re not in the medical profession – nor do we play anything resembling someone that is on TV – but our radar is up.
Pelosi is stumbling far too often these days, and we would hope that those that are closest to her have their radar up as well.
