Nancy Pelosi was at it again doing her best “Aunt Clara” imitation, for those youngsters not familiar with the bubbling mumbling zany aunt of Samantha Stevens in the classic 1960’s sitcom “Bewitched,” played by character actress Marion Lorne, who would create all sorts of chaos, confusion and mayhem. However Pelosi (sad to say) “isn’t play acting,” she’s the real deal, as this brief video clip reveals.
The Democratic Minority Leader is no stranger to putting her 77-year old foot in her mouth, like the lovable, scatterbrained “Aunt Clara” when Nancy speaks confusion follows.
This week the California lawmaker just returned to Washington to hold her weekly press conference, and instantly began doing her best “Aunt Clara” imitation, mumbling stumbling and repeating words and having one of those “senior moments” trouble saying “Martin Luther King” and slurring “prescription drugs.”
Pelosi had intended to use Rev. Martin Luther King’s legacy as a political talking point in pushing a progressive agenda of socialized medicine, however, what ensued was a rambling, incoherent performance, reminiscent of her past performances, which seems to have become more problematic with each year.
The congresswoman retreated to her notes time and again attempting to display a cohesive presentation to the media that had gathered to report on her press conference.
At one point she stumbled within her remarks appearing confused saying she was “inspired by Dr. King’s call for fairness, opportunity, and… equal oppor— opportunity, and equal acc— uh, acc– access to equality.”
She continued speaking appearing more lucid saying: “It’s really sad the Republicans tax cut.”
Then moments later she looked at the ceiling as if trying to remember her next line, then blurting out “86”, then exclaiming “83% of the benefits go to the top one percent,” she said. “It’s really sad,” she repeated.
Once again suffering a momentary lapse, slurring her words she continued: “prescription drugs.”
“What has happened this week that is…” she said, trailing off and staring at reporters.
“I don’t want to say different,” she finally continued, before correcting herself.
The bizarre press conference ended leaving journalists with a lot more questions regarding Pelosi’s mental health.
Do you think this scary performance by Pelosi is an indication that recent rumors regarding her mental condition are true?
