Nancy Pelosi is in hot water after making one insane threat live on TV

Pelosi has lost a lot of her power she had years ago. But she’s not going down without a fight.

And now she is in hot water after making one insane threat live on TV.

Former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was essentially pushed out from her post by the most radical elements of her party.

She went from wielding the speaker’s gavel and controlling the agenda to doing whatever those above her wanted.

Now she’s gone right off the deep-end with the radicals in the Democrat Party.

Maybe she thinks she can win back some of her influence.

Nancy Pelosi declared in a Monday MSNBC interview that if President Joe Biden is reelected and Democrats control both chambers of Congress, the party will eliminate the filibuster to pass a national pro-abortion bill.

Pelosi was questioned by the host: “If President Biden gets reelected and there’s a Democratic House and a Democratic Senate, what can President Biden and the Democrats do to protect abortion nationwide?”

“Very clearly we can enshrine into the law Roe v. Wade,” replied the former speaker, a self-professed Catholic. “And that makes a big difference.”

Pelosi stressed that due to the filibuster, such a pro-abortion bill would now take 60 votes in the Senate to pass.

“If we [Democrats] win 50 plus one [seats] in the Senate, 50 plus the vice president, we can overturn the 60-vote rule, the filibuster, and pass it with a 51-vote margin,” she added. “And that’s what we need to do.”

She went on to criticize the filibuster, claiming that the 60 Senate votes required to break it “is to empower 40% of the population over 60%.”

“You’re saying ‘tyranny of the minority?'” Tur asked.

“I’m not saying ‘tyranny,’ I’m just saying … if we [Democrats] have it within our power to change that let’s do it.”

“People have to view abortion as a democracy issue,” Pelosi told Tur, earlier in the interview. “It’s a freedom issue.”

She said that if former President Donald Trump is elected for a second non-consecutive term in November, he will sign a “national abortion ban” into law, despite Trump’s own statements to the contrary.

“That’s why we [Democrats] have to win it all,” the former speaker emphasized. “We have to win the White House with our … great President of the United States Joe Biden.”

Pelosi, 84, led the Democratic House Caucus for twenty years, from 2003 to 2023, when she was succeeded by Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY). She served as speaker twice: from 2007 to 2011 and again from 2019 to 2023.

Since 1987, the controversial legislator has represented San Francisco in Congress. She is running for re-election to her House seat in November.
