Pelosi will ‘cut your head off and you won’t even know you’re bleeding,’ daughter says
Nancy Pelosi’s daughter did not mince words Wednesday when she was asked about her mother’s leadership style.
“She’ll cut your head off and you won’t even know you’re bleeding,” Alexandra Pelosi bluntly told CNN in an interview Wednesday morning. “That’s all you need to know about her.”
Quiet the compliment coming from Nan’s daughter. Sounds like an excerpt from the movie, Mommy Dearest. The movie was made in 1981. It depicts the childhood of Christina Crawford and how she was abused as a little girl by her adoptive mother, actress Joan Crawford.
A comment like that can be taken in several ways. The way I read the article, Alexandra did not intend her comment as an insult to the mother, but a BADGE OF HONOR and a compliment. In essence, she meant, Nan takes no prisoners.
“No one ever won betting against Nancy Pelosi. She’s persevered,” her daughter said. “You gotta give her credit. No matter what you think about her, you have to give her credit because, think about it, think about all of those presidents she’s endured. The Bush, the Bush, the Clinton—she’s been through it all.”
Naturally I do not know Nan intimately or even casually to make a 100% quantified opinion. Like most people, I know of her thorough what I read. If what I read is accurate, she is no Rhodes Scholar, BUTT a very vindictive, crooked/sharp tongued person who has been in politics too long and has made a fool out of herself more times than not.
Pelosi has a long record of making dumb remarks that she genuinely appears to believe. There are so many to choose from, but here are LifeZette’s top 10:
1.) In 2013, Pelosi told Fox News’ Chris Wallace that spending wasn’t a big deal, and it could be offset by raising taxes. But in explaining her belief, she said, “It’s almost a false argument to say we have a spending problem.” Almost false? Just four years later, the national debt is $20 trillion.
2.) Pelosi is bad with numbers and names, often calling President Donald Trump “President Bush.” In 2009, while pushing a stimulus bill to counter the recession, Pelosi said, “Every month that we do not have an economic recovery package, 500 million Americans lose their jobs.” At the time, the U.S. had just over 300 million residents
3.) Pelosi sold Obamacare big time — and she did so before its full implementation in 2012: “And everybody will have lower rates,” she told NBC’s “Meet the Press,” speaking of premiums.
4.) But the next year, the National Republican Congressional Committee noted she defended the fallout from Obamacare at a press briefing: “I don’t remember saying that everybody in the country would have a lower premium.”
5.) Pelosi compared Obamacare to the Declaration of Independence in 2013, as she headed off to celebrate July Fourth: “We will also be celebrating health independence … It captures the spirit of our founders.” Ugh.
6.) Pelosi is a masterful race-baiter. In September 2017, she compared dreamers to Japanese-American citizens who were forced into temporary internment camps during World War II: “While their family members were fighting for freedom for America and for the world, they were in camps. And they came for them. And now they are coming for the dreamers
7.) Pelosi loves to spend tax dollars. In September 2013, during a debate on cutting the federal government’s $4 trillion budget, she said,“The cupboard is bare. There is no more cuts to make.”
8.) In April 2017, Pelosi attacked Trump for proposing a border wall on the southern border, even though she voted for the Border Fence Act of 2006. She told NBC News’ Chuck Todd: “The president … is expressing a sign of weakness. He’s saying, ‘I can’t control our borders. I have to build a wall.’” So it wasn’t a sign of weakness when Pelosi voted for it in 2006?
9.) Pelosi’s most infamous quote came in 2010, when she defended the way Democrats rammed Obamacare through Congress: “We have to pass the bill for you to find out what’s in it.” Maybe just release the text?
10.) And the quote that is sure to haunt Democrats in this year’s midterm election is Pelosi’s cavalier dismissal of $1,000 and $2,000 bonuses that legions of American workers are getting as a result of Trump’s tax reform: “In terms of the bonus that corporate America received versus the crumbs that they are giving to workers to kind of put the schmooze on is so pathetic … I think it’s insignificant.”
Pelosi and her husband, Paul, are themselves quite rich — with a net wealth estimated at $43 million, according to opensecrets.org. Crumbs indeed!
Anyone that can make such foolish, insensitive remarks as Nan has, has to have a few screws loose and no compassion or empathy for the working class people.
I think the Old Gal has some dirt on some very influential folks, like catching them with their pants around their ankles and uses it as ammo when her back s against the wall.
Instead of wasting anymore space on her; I will just call Mommy Dearest a PIECE OF WORK!!
