House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) on Monday waxed hyperbolic about the 2020 presidential election, telling an audience that “civilization as we know it is at stake.”

Pelosi made the remark during a speech at Northeastern University in Boston, Massachusetts, according to Fox News correspondent Rob DiRienzo.

Pelosi’s speech also touched on other topics, including women in politics.

“Just generally, I usually always cast my vote for a woman. I just do,” she told attendees.
