This is at least the sixth time she has made this mistake.
Republican presidents, they’re all the same. Apparently, that’s a notion that House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has internalized so much that she regularly conflates utterly different men whose presidential terms are nearly a decade apart.
On Thursday, Pelosi once again confused President Donald Trump with former President George W. Bush while speaking with a group of reporters. This is at least the sixth time she’s done so.
The clip of Pelosi was featured in the opening segment of Fox News’ “Fox News @ Night” with host Shannon Bream.
“This is a cover-up by the Republicans to protect president Bush…excuse me, president Trump in this investigation,” Pelosi said.
Pelosi’s various gaffs and distracting behavior in front of cameras has become a subject of several headlines and tweets. During the State of the Union address on Tuesday, former Fox News host Bill O’Reilly and others noted that the congressional leader was doing some very weird stuff with her mouth. Other reports have noted her increasingly odd verbal tics and nonsensical statements.
