Nancy Pelosi is harassing President Trump at every turn, many people argue, changing her stance to suit her hatred. In a clip that has resurfaced from 2011, it shows Pelosi defending Obama’s military strikes against Libya without congressional approval, making her recent war powers resolution look spiteful and ignorant.
Pelosi’s remarks came in 2011 after she was questioned on former President Barack Obama and his lack of congressional approval before he used force in Libya.
“Madame leader, you’re saying that the president did not need authorization, initially, and still does not need any authorization from Congress to go in Libya,” a reporter asked Pelosi.
“Yes,” Pelosi responded before walking away.
FLASHBACK: In 2011, Nancy Pelosi confirms she thinks Barack Obama “did not need authorization” to use force in Libya.
This opinion has not aged well for Pelosi.

Since the airstrike death of Iranian General Qasem Soleimani, leader of the terrorist Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) Quds Force, by United States forces last week, Pelosi has not only blamed President Donald Trump for the confrontation but stated she will hold a vote on a resolution to limit President Donald Trump’s power to lead the military in a confrontation with Iran.
[The resolution was passed last night mostly along party lines in the House.]
Pelosi also claimed President Trump had used “provocative and disproportionate” force in the successful airstrike against Soleimani.
“Members of Congress have serious, urgent concerns about the administration’s decision to engage in hostilities against Iran and about its lack of strategy moving forward,” Pelosi said in a statement this week.
