Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) needs 218 votes from members of Congress to become Speaker of the House.

Meaning, she can only afford to have 15 Democrats vote “no.”

As of right now, 16 Dems are opposed to Pelosi.

Interestingly enough, President Donald Trump supports Pelosi as Speaker.

Pelosi doesn’t speak so goodly.

Maybe English isn’t her first language?

Pelosi: “And they’re here now, in what is one of the most tranformative, new members of— body of members of Congress.

Pelosi: “We will— we will win 40, uh, we will win 4— we will have, take, win 40 seats.

Pelosi: “The Special Counsel cannot be fired without cause. He, he or she would be granted a three-judge appeal panel if fired, uh, could only be removed by a Senate-confirmed AG— replaced by a Se— uh, Senate-confirmed Attorney General.”

Pelosi must’ve misspoken when talking about race-baiting Rev. Al Sharpton.

How else is it fathomable she would thank him for “saving America?”

WATCH:

“Thank you, thank you for helping take back America.”

“Uh, people are call— all over the place are calling me, writing, airports here and there— thank you for saving America.”

“I give those thanks to you.”

“Thank you for saving America. Reverend Sharpton, thank you for saving America!”

This is like saying Hillary Clinton made America great again.

Facepalm.

According to Pelosi, all Republicans are “despicable.”
