Pelosi SNAPS as reporter corners her about Biden: ‘Am I speaking English to you?’


A clearly frustrated Nancy Pelosi ripped into a reporter when pressed on whether President Joe Biden should drop out of the race.

The former House speaker has been under the scrutiny of media as she has had to defend the aging president and his dogged determination to continue his re-election bid despite members of his own party and many on the left calling for him to step aside.

No sooner had Pelosi asserted on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe”  that “it’s up to the president to decide if he’s going to run,” than she was asked about the subject again in the halls of Congress.

ABC News’ Rachel Scott reported on her encounter with Pelosi and her visible frustration as she refused to comment “in the hallway” about the president.

“I’m not having this conversation with you or anybody else about what I talk with the president about, with all due respect,” Pelosi told Scott as they walked after assuring the reporter that Biden “can win.”

“Do you believe that —” Scott began but the former speaker interrupted, saying, “I never do. I never do so it’s nothing new,”

“I understand, Madame Speaker. Do you believe him waiting so long to make this decision —” Scott pressed.

“I’m not going to be making any comments in the hallway about the fate of our nation, okay?” Pelosi retorted.

“Am I speaking English to you?” she snapped, stopping short in the hall and testily addressing Scott. “I’m not going to be making any statements about any of that right now in the hallway.”

Social media users noted how the now not-so-friendly press is making Democrats like Pelosi experience what Republicans face every day.

“Fun to finally see corporate press harassing Dem politicians in hallways the same way they aggressively shove mics in the GOP faces every other day the year over issues far less serious,” wrote Mark Hemingway on X.
