House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, whom conservative commentator Rush Limbaugh has previously described as a “dinosaur,” suffered a stunning “senior moment” Friday morning when she mistook President Donald Trump for President George W. Bush.
“First, he tries to charm you,” she said of Trump during a press conference, according to the Washington Free Beacon. “President Bush tries to charm you. If that doesn’t work, he tries to bully you. If that doesn’t work, he walks away.”
A reporter tried to correct her, but she ignored him up until one of her aides reportedly handed her a note informing her of the mistake.
“I said President Bush?” she then said. “I’m sorry, I meant to say — it’s hard for me to say it … President Trump. Poor President Bush. I apologize.”
Thank you for the apology, but what she ought to really do is seek some help from a trained medical professional.
As noted by the Beacon, she made the exact same mistake only about a month ago.
Think that’s bad? It’s nothing!
While speaking earlier in the morning on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” she complained about Trump allegedly being unfit for office, all while she demonstrated that she herself is most certainly unfit to be in Congress.
“I think his family should be concerned about his health,” she said. “The fact is that this is hopefully not reparable — he’s the president of the United States.”
“You mean you hope it is reparable?” confused co-host Joe Scarborough then asked.
“Yeah, yeah,” she replied.
The 77-year-old curmudgeon also briefly forgot the day of the week, as reported by Grabien.
“I spoke to the Speaker a week and a couple days ago — just last Friday,” she said later during the presser. “What is today? Is today Friday again?”
Yes, honey, but it’s also “Time To Take Your Medication Day,” mmm-k?
But I don’t mean this as an attack on the elderly, but rather as an indictment of those seniors who choose to remain in positions of influence and power when it’s clear as day that they need to resign and let the younger generation take over.
And well, this antiquated T-Rex of a woman definitely needs to go!
