VIDEO: The Immigration Speech That Angered Nancy Pelosi so Much She Angrily Chased Around the Speaker
In a raucous moment during the last session of the House of Representatives Friday evening, Republican Tom Marino reminded the Democrats that they had years to solve the immigration problem when they were in power and they didn’t have the courage to do so. This got Nancy Pelosi so angry she jumped up on her chupacabra hooves and ran after the congressman, berating him and pointing her skeletal finger at him.
Here’s the comment that angered her so much:
Off-mic, Pelosi then seemed to challenge Marino’s assertion that Democrats did not do anything about the issue when they had majority control.
“Yes it is true,” Marino replied directly to Pelosi, who was House speaker in those years. “I did the research on it. You might want to try it. You might want to try it, Madam Leader. Do the research on it. Do the research. I did it. That’s one thing that you don’t do.”
Marino then urged lawmakers to support the border supplemental because “apparently I hit the right nerve.”
After Marino concluded his remarks, Pelosi quickly crossed the chamber, enraged, pointing and sticking her finger in Marino’s face.
She then followed Marino up a Republican aisle, and continued arguing with him. Another Republican member spoke out to tell the chair that the House was not in order, in an effort to halt the bickering.
There was such a raucous altercation that the House Sergeant came close to having to restore order by force!
What I would’ve given to see the Seargent-in-Arms tackle Pelosi and perp walk her out of the House floor…
Representative Marino posted on Twitter that she called him “insignificant” during the altercation:
He has a point – his comments were pointed, but not angry or hyperbolic, while Pelosi’s lack of decorum is exactly the kind of shenanigans that Republicans would get hammered over.
