NBC host Chuck Todd interviewed House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) on Sunday and hammered her with questions about the sexual harassment allegations against Democrats without a single question about the Republican tax bill.
Pelosi was viably annoyed with Todd who was relentless with questions about the sexual misconduct of Democratic figures former President Bill Clinton, Sen. Al Franken (D-MN) and Rep. John Conyers (D-MI).
“I am here to talk about something also transformative in our society,” Pelosi said, “And that is this tax bill that Republicans have put forth.”
“Unfortunately, for time, I have to end it there,” Todd said, abruptly concluding the interview.
Pelosi was incensed that Todd had spent the time talking about the sexual harassment scandals and not taxes.
“You mean we’re not even going to talk about taxes!” Pelosi exclaimed. “See, you have fallen into the place where they are doing something that’s going to increase the debt enormously.”
Todd tried to interrupt Pelosi but she continued:
“It’s going to be a job killer and it’s going to raise taxes on the middle class. And that has an impact on the individual time of all Americans. And really, we should be spending more time on that.”
Watch the video from NBC to the end to see Pelosi absolutely livid with Todd for talking about the sex allegations against Franken and Conyers rather than the tax plan.
