What was she thinking?
According to CNS News, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi froze on stage during her weekly press conferences and forgot a name of a congressman which led to an awkward silence.
“This, I think, we’re moving, uh, we had bipartisan talks for a while,” Pelosi said. “There’d been some, again, everybody expressing opinions for a long while. Mr. Hoyer, Mr. McGovern, Ms. Lofgren, Chair of House Admin, Chair of Rules, Democratic Leader of the House with the Republican Leader of the House and the corresponding chairs, Mr. Cole and Mr. Um … Randy.”
When she said “Mr. Um … Randy,” she looked down and shuffled some papers on the podium in front of her.
“Randy something,” it sounds like she mumbles in that direction.
Then an unseen person (on the C-SPAN tape) sitting in front of the podium—where the reporters sit–said: “Davis.”
Pelosi turned in that direction and said: “Hmm?”
Then another person sitting in front of the podium said: “Davis.”
And the first voice that had said it repeated: “Davis.”
Then Pelosi said: “Davis, yeah.” You can read the full article here.
