Nancy Pelosi and her ongoing bizarre behavior have many high ranking Democrats calling for her to step down and that escalated this week when she repeatedly used incorrect words in another press conference.

As Pelosi spoke to reporters on Thursday, she repeatedly used the wrong words in sentences, awkwardly correcting herself so she was clear to the journalists.

Speaking about new gun control legislation, she said there is a “commensurate bi-partisan — common sense bi-partisan supp, uh, path forward.”

Moments later, she repeated words and mistakenly said “tax force,” before enunciating “task force.”

The American Thinker details:

Pelosi fell back into previous talking points, nearly saying “comprehensive immigration bill” when talking about gun control.

“So we’re just say to, we’re just saying to the Speaker, ‘Give us a vote, just give us a vote,’” she repeated.

Moments later she said Republicans are going to take “$500 billion out of Medicare. One-and-a-half — excuse me,” she stopped herself. “Trillion — half a trillion dollars out of Medicare,” she continued, apparently believing $500 billion and half-a-trillion are different numbers.

While talking about transparency in settlements with sex harassment victims, Pelosi said, “I don’t want to herm — harm victims…”

As Pelosi attempted to again slam the popular Trump tax cut, she botched the numbers created by the Democratic Party.

“Once the tax scam is fully phased in, 6 million middle class families — excuse me,” she said, staring at her notes. “86 million middle class families,” she continued as reporters sat in silence.

Condemning members of the Trump administration who are leaving, she said, “They’re having served in that White House for one year is a giant enhancement as they go out to the public sector — private sector, the private sector,” she corrected herself.

Calls have been going on for months, some by high ranking Democrats, for Pelosi to step down from leadership and even retire all together.

During a recent candidate forum of Democrats vying for an Arizona congressional seat, not a single one raised their hand to indicate support for Pelosi. Watch:

Late last year, high-ranking House Democrat Rep. Linda Sanchez of California called on Pelosi to step down as Minority leader to make way for a new generation.

“Our leadership does a tremendous job,” Sanchez said.

“But I do think we have this real breadth and depth of talent within our caucus, and I do think it’s time to pass the torch to a new generation of leaders, and I want to be a part of that transition. I want to see that happen.”

Sanchez specifically called out Pelosi; the House Minority Whip, Steny Hoyer of Maryland; and the Assistant House Minority Leader, James Clyburn of South Carolina, when asked who should leave their leadership positions.

“I don’t think there is one leader of the Democratic Party. I think there are many people who try to move the country in the right direction,” Sanchez said. “We have too many great leaders here that don’t always get the opportunities that they should, and I would like to see that change.”

If Democrats somehow fail to flip the House in November, rank-and-file members in increasing numbers say they are going to clean shop.

“Win or lose we have to have the change,” said Rep. Kathleen Rice, D-N.Y., an outspoken critic of Democratic leadership.

They will demand that Pelosi and other party leaders step aside.

“If we lose, everyone goes,” said Rep. Ruben Gallego, D-Ariz., one of the top Democratic leaders.

“People are saying if we lose, if there’s not a majority, then we’re cleaning house — like everybody,” one House Democrat said, speaking on the condition of anonymity for fear of retribution.

Many members tend to remain silent and keep their leadership gripes away from the media.

But predictions aren’t limited to reliable Pelosi critics. Rep. John Yarmuth, a member of the Democratic leadership and a Pelosi ally, said he’s sensed an increasing appetite for new leadership among the caucus.

“Certainly the growing prospect that we could be in the majority has made people think about it a little differently,” the Kentucky Democrat said.

But if Democrats win and “Nancy wants to be Speaker, she’ll be Speaker,” Yarmuth added. “Some other people may have other ambitions.”

If they lose? “Nancy would probably say it’s time for somebody else,” he said, quickly adding, “I don’t base that on anything.”

SECOND WOMAN ACCUSES SEN. AL FRANKEN OF ‘CREEPY BEHAVIOR,’ INCLUDING STALKING

Al Franken

A second woman has come forward to make accusations against Democratic Senator Al Franken of disturbing behavior.

Melanie Morgan, a radio talk show host and founder of both MediaEqualizer.com and the Media Equality Project, says Franken stalked her and displayed “creepy behavior” after she appeared with him on ABC’s “Politically Incorrect with Bill Maher” in 2000.

According to Morgan, Franken seemed obsessed with her on the set of the show, after the two clashed in an on-air debate. Afterward, Franken began calling her at home, only to stop after Morgan threatened to contact the authorities.

Franken is already under fire after broadcaster and former model Leeann Tweeden accused him of sexual assault. Some have called for Franken to resign his Senate seat, and a congressional investigation has been ordered.

Here are details of the encounter from Morgan’s website, MediaEqualizer.com:

Morgan, who was a ABC Radio talk show host for KSFO in San Francisco at the time, appeared August 19, 2000 on ABC’s late night show Politically Incorrect.

She was joined by Franken, William Baldwin, and then-Colorado Lt. Governor Joe Rogers on the panel.
Morgan and Franken had a dispute over the OMB’s budget numbers.

“I was invited and unaware of who his guests were going to be that night. I’ve since learned that though few know this, Al Franken was actually a writer for the show,” Morgan said.

“I made a statement about the budget numbers, Franken challenged me, I challenged him back. It was about spending priorities, actually just a mundane discussion. But he obsessed over it.”

After the show, Morgan said Franken wouldn’t leave her alone, insisting on continuing the argument.

“He approached me backstage, angrily called me out on those numbers and insisted he would prove he was right. He wouldn’t leave me alone, he kept following me. As a woman, his presence and proximity to me felt very threatening and intimidating.

“I didn’t realize his creepy behavior after the show meant it would continue in the days to come.

“He approached Carol, the show’s producer and demanded my home phone number, which was a clear violation of network protocol. I had thought that was the end of the story and was shocked when he started calling my home, badgering me repeatedly.

“I became fearful and called Carol to complain and asked her to tell him to back off. But he made another call after that. I thought that he might end up stalking me at my home in Northern California, it was that bad.

“By the third phone call I was outraged and terrified, as he is really disturbed,” Morgan recounted.

Morgan said Franken finally left her alone, but only after she pushed back and threatened to call the police.

To this day, she says she is haunted by it: “I never forgot that experience and it informed me of his lack of character and obsessive personality. I believe every word Leann wrote.”

With many calling on Republican Alabama U.S. Senate candidate Judge Roy Moore to step aside following claims of sexual misconduct from decades ago, will Franken be asked to resign as senator?

“I will happily testify before the Senate Ethics Committee, should a hearing be held regarding Franken’s behavior,” Morgan added.

We will update this story as more details come available.
