Nancy Pelosi and Hillary Clinton are normally political allies.
But there was a moment of tension.
And Nancy Pelosi froze after getting caught saying one insane thing about Hillary Clinton.
At an event hosted by the Columbia University’s School of International and Public Affairs Hillary Clinton interviewed Nancy Pelosi.
During the session Clinton asked Pelosi about the Democrats’ favorite talking point which is supposedly defending American democracy.
“There’s research, some of it done by SIPA in this university, showing that half the world’s democracies are backsliding, and that includes, sadly, the United States. So, what do you, Nancy, view as the biggest threats and challenges facing our democracy and what are the opportunities to try to stop that backsliding and turn it around?” Clinton asked.
There is irony in the idea that Democrats were the party defending democracy on a day when a Democrat prosecutor indicted Donald Trump, the leading candidate of the opposition party, which made America look like a third-world banana republic.
Even the President of El Salvador said the Democrats indicting their top political rival meant the United States could never use democracy as a principle in foreign policy ever again.
“Think what you want about former President Trump and the reasons he’s being indicted. But just imagine if this happened in any other country, where a government arrested the main opposition candidate. The United States ability to use ‘democracy’ as foreign policy is gone,” President Nayib Bukele posted on Twitter.
In answering Clinton’s question Pelosi referred to Clinton as “president.”
“Well, I appreciate that question, but I also appreciate your leadership in this regard when president –” Pelosi started to say before stammering her way through the rest of her answer.
“But when Secretary Clinton was in the Senate and first lady, but especially as secretary of State in more recent time – she has been and at that time implemented many things showing America’s support for democracy,” Pelosi continued.
And just to make sure Pelosi put a final cherry on top of the irony sundae she created Pelosi once again attacked American democracy by repeating the false claim that Russian President Vladimir Putin stole the 2016 election for Donald Trump because he was terrified of Hillary Clinton.
“It was her clarity and position to the present – Putin – present occupant leader of Russia, that made him turn around and ensure, in an illegal way, come out against her in her campaign and interference in our democracy by Vladimir Putin, because Hillary Clinton was the person he feared most in terms of his lack of democracy in Russia. That’s, I think, self-evident, so thank you for what you have done,” Pelosi stated.
If anyone pushed America into backsliding on democracy it was Hillary Clinton.
There was no greater assault on the idea of self-government than the Clinton campaign funding the creation of the fake news Christopher Steele dossier falsely accusing the Trump campaign of colluding with Russia.
Disgraced former FBI Director James Comey and anti-Trump special counsel Robert Mueller seized on this lie about Russian collusion to carry out a coup attempt to remove Trump from office and nullify the votes of the American people.
Critics contend if anyone actually tried to undermine democracy it was Hillary and her campaign aides cooking up the Russian collusion hoax.
