Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi struggles with details at times. Recently, she’s forgotten who the president of the United States is several times, became confused about the time of day, and has had difficulty forming coherent sentences.
On Sunday, the California Congresswoman joined Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday. In short order, Pelosi stumbed over another relevant detail.
Wallace started by stating that the Republican’s plan to repeal and replace Obamacare fell short on the Senate floor, and wondered if the solution is bipartisan compromise as he welcomed Pelosi.
Then, Wallace asked the 77-year-old Pelosi about Gen. John F. Kelly’s new appointment as the White House Chief of Staff.
“How much trouble is this President in,” Wallace asked. “And do you think that putting General Kelly in there will make a difference?”
Pelosi answered, “Well, let me take the second part — I hope so. Uh, I look forward to working with General Kelly.”
Then, the Democratic leader had to work to remember what department Kelly was coming from.
“I have worked with him — well — Secretary Kelly, at…..uh…er….the Department of Homeland Security,” Pelosi finally stated. “So I will be speaking with him today.”
This year alone, Pelosi has mixed up President Trump’s name with that of Bush. It seems Republicans are simply interchangeable figures in her view.
