During her Friday speech addressing Families USA, an activist group fighting the repeal of Obamacare, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi made a few awkward and rather embarrassing missteps.
Pelosi was seen repeating words, using the wrong words, and mistakenly called John Kasich the governor of Illinois.
“Don’t take it from me. John Kasich, the governor of Illinois said, ‘Thank God for Medicaid,'” said Pelosi.
Her speech began by thanking the person who introduced her for his “recanting of what happened at the time” referring to when Democrats and activist groups pushed through Obamacare.
She told the audience when to clap after she did not receive the desired reaction. “When I said, ‘We could not have done it without Families USA,’ that is an applause line for you,” she reminded them.
The audience gave her a courtesy laugh. But, Pelosi proceeded to do it again when she gave a shout out to the executive director of Families USA, Frederick Isasi, saying: “I look forward to continuing work with Families USA under your leadership. Thank you and congratulations. Applause line!”
She later repeated words when she recalled about telling her fellow Democrats that the Affordable Care Act was going to be a major achievement, and “stand there with Social Security and Medicare and Medicare.” Apparently, she intended to say, “Medicaid.”
Pelosi then asked the audience, “By the way, do you know who the poorest people in America are? Infants and children. Infants and children.”
Lastly, she mispronounced Martin Luther King’s name, calling him “Martin Luther Sing.”
Despite her many verbal missteps, the House Minority Leader still managed to receive a standing ovation from the liberal activists in attendance.
