‘Don’t Bother Me’: Pelosi Snaps At Reporter Who Dares To Ask Whether She’ll Finish Her Term | Eastern North Carolina Now

    A visibly irritated House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) snapped at a reporter during her regular Thursday press conference, apparently set off by a question about whether or not she plans to finish her term in the House of Representatives after she hands over the gavel in January.

    Pelosi's demeanor had been much more affable earlier in the press conference, as Mediaite reported, even when questions veered toward the end of her tenure as House Speaker. The California Congresswoman even lightly ribbed a reporter who suggested that, because of the approaching Christmas holiday, Thursday's press briefing might be her last as a Democratic Party leader.

    "Could be, and we may have one a day," Pelosi joked.

    The outgoing Speaker talked at length about her legacy as a leader within her party, saying that even after decades of service, nothing she had ever accomplished could hold a candle to the passage of 2010's Affordable Care Act, which was championed and signed into law by then-President Barack Obama.

    "Nothing in any of the years that I was there compares to the Affordable Care Act, expanding health care to tens of millions more Americans, 150 million families having better benefits, lower cost and no preexisting condition, risking their access and no lifetime limits. Being a woman no longer a preexisting condition," Pelosi stated.

    But Pelosi's attitude quickly soured when a reporter asked whether she would finish out her final term once the gavel had been relinquished.

    WATCH:


    "Will you commit to serving your full two-year term for the people of San Francisco?" the reporter asked.

    "What is this? What is this? Don't bother me with a question like that," Pelosi snapped. "Really. Really, ok? I said what I'm gonna do. Those kind of questions are such a waste of my time."

    In addition to turning her gavel over to an as-yet-unnamed new House Speaker in January, Pelosi announced shortly after the midterm election that she did not intend to seek a leadership role in the next Congress. Shortly thereafter, Congressman Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY) was elected to serve as the Democratic leader in the House.

Considering how abjectly corrupt and civilly abusive the Left has become regarding the corrosive effect of their elected leaders; their entrenched and ruling bureaucracy; employing their failed Education Industry as Indoctrinators; their collusive private sector operators, such as the terminally discredited Legacy Media and Big Tech censorship of Free Speech: What will be the best course forward for hardworking Middle Americans, including the Patriot Class?
  Withdraw from society, go underground and plan for a resurgence when it is feasible to do so.
  Work within the confines of better policy by the People's government, once good sense and sanity is restored in the electorate at large, to achieve such.
  Are you a crazy, nut-job Insurrectionist? Everything is perfect within our plan to achieve our intended goals for the Socialist Left.
  Secession to form a true Constitutional Republic.
