During an interview on CBS Friday morning, Oprah’s bestie Gayle King told House Speaker Nancy Pelosi that her language is just as egregious as President Trump. (Video Below)
CBS’s Gayle King on Friday also pointed out that Democrats are seen as hypocritical on the issue of the Supreme Court vacancy.
“Madam Speaker, they always say, ‘He who has the votes has the power.’ Don’t you think the Democrats would do the same thing if the situation was reversed?”
NANCY PELOSI: No, no.
KING: You do not?
PELOSI: That is absolutely not true.
KING: You don’t?
PELOSI: This is totally, completely inappropriate. And counter to what they said when Justice Scalia passed. But it’s no use getting into their hypocrisy. What we have to make sure people know, they must vote. They must vote early so that the message, their voices, their vote, that that message comes clearly. All of the polling shows that people do not want the Affordable Care Act overturned.
KING: The vote show that’s 62% of Americans wish that there would be no decision made until after the election. That does not appear to be the case. So as —
PELOSI: Just want people to know what the case is because if the Republicans insist on going forward, then there has to be a price to pay. President Lincoln, back to Lincoln —
KING: Last week you said —
PELOSI: Said public sentiment is everything. I think the public sentiment must be heard.
KING: We heard that. You had said last week that you have arrows in your quiver. Do you still have arrows in your quiver at this point? The clock is really ticking here.
KING: Tuesday is a big debate. The first debate between the two of them, between Joe Biden and Donald Trump. You had earlier suggested that you didn’t think Biden should debate. Do you still feel that way?
PELOSI: I do. Not that I don’t think he’ll be excellent. I just think that the president has no fidelity to fact or truth, and actually in his comments the last few days new fidelity to the Constitution of the United States. He and his henchmen are a danger with their comments, are a danger to our democracy. I didn’t want to give him, you know, why bother — you know, doesn’t tell the truth, isn’t committed to our Constitution.
KING: But Speaker Pelosi, that’s what people say is the problem. Your language to some is just as egregious as what they’re saying by calling the President’s people henchmen. Some could say that’s just as insulting as what he’s saying about you.
PELOSI: Well, I don’t care what he says about me. Every knock from him is a boost for me. If he wants to help me raise money, he can keep knocking me. I speak the truth. Our Constitution is at the mercy of people who have no allegiance to the Constitution of the United States. That I have repeatedly demonstrated that. Now that the president has said what he’s said, it’s clear to the public —
KING: Even the Republicans are saying there will be a transition to power. Are you really worried about that? That there will be a peaceful transition to power?
PELOSI: Well, let me say this — I’m hoping for the best. I’m prepared for the worst. And I’ll also tell you this — the best antidote to their poison, the best antidote to their poison is to vote. To vote to have your friends and neighbors vote, whoever you vote for.
