House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) was interviewed by the New York Times’ Paul Krugman on Sunday to discuss various topics such as immigration, Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh and the Democrats’ agenda for the 2018 midterm elections.
Paul Krugman, as usual, was in awe of Nancy Pelosi as he told her what a huge honor it was to sit down and interview the House Minority Leader.
At one point, Nancy Pelosi lost her train of thought as she spoke about Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation.
She either forgot Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s name or pretended she couldn’t bring herself to say his name for dramatic effect.

Then Nancy Pelosi was asked by Paul Krugman what the Democrats agenda is if they take back the House in the midterms.
Pelosi mumbled her way through the usual Democrat talking points: gun safety, LGBT rights, abortion and added that if there’s some collateral damage for Republicans along the way, so be it.
“If there’s some collateral damage, for some others that don’t share our view, well so be it,” Pelosi said.
