“60 Minutes” Highlight: Pelosi Bristles at Stahl’s Accusation of Stimulus Obstruction

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi doesn’t care for lowly journalists pointing out her allegiance to party over country. It ruins the narrative she’s worked so hard to cultivate, which is that Democrats give two squirts about the suffering that their constituents have been forced to endure since the emergence of the coronavirus.

Emperor Pelosi was clearly rattled during a “60 Minutes” interview that aired Sunday after Lesley Stahl questioned her “decision” to block coronavirus relief for a full eight months leading up to the November election.

Pelosi, pausing intermittently to adjust her dentures, told Stahl the decision was made  “because there was no respect for our heroes.”

The contentious exchange began as Stahl remarked that the Speaker was not “known as a person who compromises.”

“No, I am,” Pelosi responded. “I’ll compromise. We wanna get the job done. I’m mischaracterized by the Republicans that way, but that’s a tactic that they use. But, we know we want results for the American people.”

That’s when Stahl brought up the $900 billion coronavirus relief package that passed in December… after President-elect Joe Biden had won the election.

Pelosi said it was stalled because of Republican obstruction.

“Yours, too,” Stahl responded.

“No, it wasn’t obstruction. … We held it up because there was no respect for our heroes, our state and local health care workers, police and fire, our first responders, our sanitation, transportation, food workers, our teachers, our teachers, our teachers. They would not go down that path,” Pelosi lied.

The California Democrat’s explanation for prolonging the suffering of the American people was very different than the justification she offered in early December when the lover of luxury ice cream bragged to reporters that it was her “decision” to block coronavirus relief for months, saying “that was not a mistake, it was a decision…the fact is, I’m very proud of where we are.”

WIBC’s Mock n’ Rob questioned Monday if the Speaker of the House even realizes when she’s contradicting her own narrative. More importantly, does she care?
