Speaker Pelosi was absolutely indignant that her stalling COVID relief money to Americans for political purposes was being called out by a member of the press.
Did Wolf Blitzer forget that he was a member of the Partisan Press Corps?
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is unaccustomed to not being praised by the friendly media.
This was a hostile interview by Blitzer who was demanding answers from the Speaker of the House.
Pelosi was livid and called Blitzer names and said that he didn’t know what he was talking about.
It was… refreshing.
Pelosi slammed Blitzer for having “no knowledge” on the details of relief proposals as he pressed her on why she wouldn’t accept a $1.8 trillion package offered by Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin — a package that is roughly $400 billion less than the relief legislation the House passed earlier this month.
“[Americans] really need the money right now…even members of your own caucus, madam speaker, want to accept this deal,” said Blitzer.
Blitzer went on to quote a tweet from Rep. Ro Khanna, a fellow California Democrat, who said “people in need can’t wait until February [for the next stimulus bill]” and that the $1.8 trillion offered from the White House was “significant.”
“I don’t know why you’re always an apologist — and many of your colleagues, apologists for the Republican position,” Pelosi responded. “Ro Khanna, that’s nice. That isn’t what we’re going to do. And nobody’s waiting until February.”

Pelosi is holding up COVID stimulus to make people miserable and suffer until after the election.
She also wants the stimulus money to go to all sorts of leftwing policy positions.
What did @SpeakerPelosi include in her coronavirus “relief bill?”
❌$600M taken from law enforcement
❌Bailouts for poorly-managed blue states
❌Federalized election regulations
It’s easy to see how this furthers the left’s agenda, but how does it help the American people?

Obviously House Dems are going to have to drop some very absurd demands for there to be another coronavirus response bill, such as:
-mass prison release, including violent criminals
-nationwide ballot harvesting
-Voter ID ban
-stimulus checks to illegal immigrants

President Trump has said that he’d sign a pork-free bill, but Pelosi doesn’t want to do that. It wouldn’t make people miserable before they vote on November 3.
If I am sent a Stand Alone Bill for Stimulus Checks ($1,200), they will go out to our great people IMMEDIATELY. I am ready to sign right now. Are you listening Nancy? @MarkMeadows @senatemajldr @kevinomccarthy @SpeakerPelosi @SenSchumer

It’s all partisan politics for Speaker Pelosi who doesn’t care about the suffering of Americans. After all, she’s got gobs of money and her job is safe, right?
She just wants to make sure that the blame gets pinned on President Trump.
Unfortunately, Pelosi didn’t expect Wolf Blitzer to find his spine and hold a leftwing career politician’s feet to the fire.
