Blitzer fires back, “It’s not about me, it’s about millions of Americans who can’t put food on the table, who can’t pay the rent, who are having trouble getting by with these long food lines we’re seeing.”

Seriously, rude. In a segment on ::double checks notes:: CNN, Nancy Pelosi met unexpected pushback when she tried to denigrate anchor Wolf Blitzer when he pushed her sidestepping why she is refusing to work with the White House to pass another coronavirus relief bill.
Pelosi accused Blitzer of disrespecting the committee chairs responsible for pushing legislation forward (way to own your role, Nancy!), then accused him of disrespecting the “knowledge that goes into meeting the needs of the American people,” then when Blitzer tried to graciously move on by saying “these are difficult times and we’ll leave it on that note,” Pelosi told him he was wrong, to which he reminded her that the whole ordeal is about the American people, first and foremost.
This is such a disgusting display by Pelosi who denigrates @wolfblitzer for pushing her on why exactly she won't do a deal w/ The White House on stimulus
Props to Wolf for speaking up for the millions of unemployed, the hungry, and those on the brink pic.twitter.com/FKAUDVXGkW

Forget about advocating for the people, Speaker Pelosi is far more interested in demanding respect for the job they are not doing.DONATE
