While spewing ridiculous inaccuracies and libelous claims against President Trump during an appearance on ABC this weekend, Nancy Pelosi apparently had a “senior moment,” on air after threatening the administration with “arrows” of impeachment.
George Stephanopoulos stated, “Let me press you though on what happens. You want people to get out and vote. And even that’s no guarantee that the White House and Senate Republicans won’t try to push through a Supreme Court nomination in a lame-duck session even if Joe Biden wins on November 3rd, even if Democrats win, pick up seats in the House, and maybe even the Senate. So what can you do then? Some have mentioned the possibility if they try to push through a nominee in a lame-duck session that you and the House can move to impeach President Trump or Attorney General Barr as a way of stalling and preventing the Senate from acting on this nomination.”
“Well, we have our options. We have arrows in our quiver that I’m not about to discuss right now, but the fact is we have a big challenge in our country. This president has threatened to not even accept the results of the election with statements that he and his henchmen have made. So right now, our main goal and I think Ruth Bader Ginsburg would want that to be to protect the integrity of the election, that we protect the American people from the coronavirus.”
Stephanopoulos, “To be clear, you’re not taking any arrows out of your quiver and not ruling anything out.”
Pelosi said, “Yeah, we have a responsibility. We’ve taken an oath to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States. We have a responsibility to meet the needs of the American people. That is when we weigh the equities of protecting our democracy requires us to use every arrow in our quiver.”
When asked for clarification by host George Stephanopoulos on whether she would take any arrows out of her quiver or rule anything out, her answer seemed disjointed.
“Good morning, Sunday morning,” she said while laughing.
Users on social media reacted to her apparent flub, with some wishing they could use that response to get out of an argument or harsh questioning.
“LIFEHACK: If you are in the middle of a harsh questioning and don’t know an answer just respond with “good morning.” It will confuse all parties involved to the point where they just move on. Works every time,” one user wrote.
After her response and a short pause, Pelosi added: “We take an oath to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States. We have a responsibility to meet the needs of the American people.”
“When we weigh the equities of protecting our democracy, it requires us to use every arrow in our quiver,” she continued.
Just hours after it was announced that Ginsburg had passed away on Friday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., vowed that a Trump nominee to the Supreme Court to fill her vacancy “will receive a vote on the floor of the United States Senate.”
UNHINGED: Former Clinton aide George Stephanopoulos floats impeaching @realDonaldTrump or AG Bill Barr to Nancy Pelosi to prevent Trump from filling the vacancy on the Supreme Court.
