Nancy Pelosi could not believe it.
She never expected CNN to ask her a real question.
And what Nancy Pelosi just did on CNN will leave you speechless.
Nancy Pelosi appeared on The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer for what she thought would be batting practice session to tee off on Donald Trump and the Republicans.
But instead Blizter asked Pelosi why she would not accept the Trump administration’s offer of a $1.8 trillion coronavirus stimulus bill.
Pelosi flew off the handle and accused Wolf Blizter of fake news CNN of acting like an apologist for the Trump administration.

Blitzer then asked Pelosi about members of her own party like former Presidential candidate Andrew Yang and Congressman Ro Khanna imploring Pelosi to take the deal.
Pelosi raged at Blitzer that Khanna and Yang had no idea what they were talking about and were being apologists for the Trump administration.
“What I say to you is I don’t know if you’re always an apologist — and many of your colleagues — for the Republican position. Ro Khanna, that’s nice. That isn’t what we’re going to do,” Pelosi began.
“Honest to God, you really — I can’t get over it because Andrew Yang is lovely. Ro Khanna, he’s lovely. They are not negotiating this situation. They have no idea of the particulars. They have no idea of what the language is here.”
The interview only deteriorated from there and when the 14-minute grilling wrapped up, Pelosi refused to let Blizter get the last word in and used her closing comments to repeatedly tell Blizter to his face that he had no respect for Democrat committee chairs and that he was a Trump suck up.
