Nancy Pelosi seems to be making a habit of getting her foot caught in her mouth. She recently has referred to the Benghazi scandal as “a diversion,” although the House Select Committee now investigating that matter does not seem to be acting in a partisan fashion–Democrats even agree it is a major issue. She has also stated that Qatar was making credible claims that Hamas, a designated Foreign Terrorist Organization by the United States, is a humanitarian group.

It could, however, just run in the family, as her daughter, Alexandra Pelosi, recently claimed there’s no way to secure the southern border–just days before Harry Reid declared it secure.



Now the former Speaker of the House has done it again, according to WZ, arguing during a congressional hearing that the U.S. “cannot have deportation without representation.”

The House minority leader was protesting a $659 billion Republican bill that she said did not do enough for the “unattended minors crossing the border.”

Perhaps Pelosi was referring not to elected representation, but representation in court, as the bill included funds to pay for the immigration court process.

But, that’s just it. We have no idea what she meant. She is the minority leader, the former Speaker of the House; and we still don’t know what she’s talking about.

Maybe someone can get a teleprompter for her to read from… Obama?
