Nancy Pelosi called out on air for stalling on COVID-19 relief

In extremely rare form, the mainstream media on Sunday actually took Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) to task over an issue that, before the Capitol riots last week, was the talk of Washington D.C. for months.

According to the Daily Caller, CBS’s “60 Minutes” host Lesley Stahl interviewed the Speaker in the wake of the deadly attacks on the U.S. Capitol, but then pivoted to the COVID-19 relief package, with Stahl accusing Pelosi and her Democratic colleagues of being responsible for stalling the measure for months before it was finally passed. 

Pelosi seemed to have been caught off guard in the interview, as before Stahl broached the subject of the COVID-19 bill, she asserted that Pelosi wasn’t exactly known for her willingness to compromise — a remark that Pelosi quickly defended.

In true Democrat talking point fashion, Pelosi quickly blamed the characterization on Republicans, accusing them of using the language as a “tactic.”

“No, I am,” Pelosi said. “I’ll compromise. We wanna get the job done. I’m not– I’m– mischaracterized by the Republicans that way. But that’s a tactic that they use. But we know we want results for the American people.”

The two then engaged in some mildly heated back-and-forth, with Stahl accusing Pelosi of holding out for eight months on the relief package negotiations and Pelosi, not unexpectedly, blaming that long stretch of time on Republicans engaging in “obstruction.”

Stahl held her ground, even pointing to an anonymous Democrat who blamed Pelosi for the delay on the package, saying that the anonymous Democrat said Pelosi made the party “look like obstructionists” while adding that it was a “big mistake” to stall the bill.

Pelosi denied that it was a mistake while going on to claim that she simply couldn’t support what Republicans were asking for at the time. “Nobody expects me to, to support something that solidifies injustice in our country,” the Speaker said.

It was refreshing to see a member of the media finally press Pelosi on the issue, which from watching the interview, was not something that she expected.
