Alexandra Pelosi (a documentary filmmaker and the daughter of Nancy Pelosi’s House Speaker), released footage that shows the House speaker boasting she would “punch” former President Donald Trump if Trump traveled from the White House up to the Capitol on January 6, 2021.
CNN reported that Pelosi was reacting to Trump’s chief of staff telling her that Trump had been “dissuaded” by the Secret Service.
Pelosi boasted to his aides, “If he arrives, I’m going out to punch him out.” “I have been waiting for this. I will punch him out for trespassing on the Capitol grounds. And I’m going to send him to jail. I’m going to be happy.”
Pelosi’s tendency to use bellicose language about Trump predated the January 6 comments. Pelosi said to MSNBC in July 2020 that Trump wouldn’t leave the White House if he didn’t accept the November election results. This was the day following an interview in which Trump suggested he might not accept them.
Pelosi stated, “The truth is, regardless of whether he knows or not, he will leave.” Even though he may not be ready to leave the White House, that doesn’t mean there won’t be an inauguration ceremony to induct a duly elected President of the United States.
Pelosi said, “I’m second-in-line to the presidency, and just last week I had my regular continuation government briefing.” This might be of interest to you because I tell them that this is not going to happen. It won’t, God willing. But it is possible. It has nothing to do with the fact that the White House occupant doesn’t feel like moving. The presidency must be fumigated from there. It is not about geography or whereabouts.
Alexandra Pelosi’s opinion of her mother is this: January 2019. Alexandra Pelosi, speaking on CNN’s “New Day,” remarked about her mother’s toughness. She said, “She will cut your head off, and you won’t even know that you’re bleeding.”
Pelosi was asked about the impending talks between her mother and former President Trump over the shutdown of the government.
John Berman, the host, began by asking: “If you could tell us what Speaker Pelosi thinks going in —
Pelosi said, “John, we have known each other for over two decades. Are you sure that I am the type of person who will talk about my mother on CNN? Are you sure that’s who I think I am?
Berman insisted, “I’m still asking you. You were a great political reporter.” What is her approach to meetings with President Trump A and B? And what are your feelings about the person you know well becoming Speaker of the House for the second time?
Alexandra Pelosi said, “She will cut your head off and it won’t even be obvious that you are bleeding.” This is all you need to know. Nancy Pelosi has never been a winner in a bet.
