Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi has been known for suffering brain freezes in the past.
If it happens one, two times, no big deal. That’s life.
The thing is, Pelosi is constantly caught slurring her words and messing up routine gestures.
This clip below is no different.
As the House Speaker gave her weekly brief press conference, she could be seen suffering brain freezes, confusing millions and billions, and at one point, caught herself holding up only five fingers while talking about six bills.
“We’ve already had a committee, uh, uh, uh, committees, the, uh— Ways and Means Committee and the Oversight Committee— Government Reform and Oversight Committee,” she struggled to say.
While talking about the amount of money Democrats want to spend, she mistakenly said “$1 billion” instead of “$17 billion,” then said “$9 million” before changing it to “$9 billion”.
Yikes. Maybe English isn’t her first language?
Here’s another recent Pelosi episode…
“We um…As you are aware, uh, we have— we are diligent, diligent and persistent…”
“We you want to detect drugs, as we all do, then there is, uh, uh, uh— technology that can scan…”
“…Beef up the ports of entry to do that, but there’s no reason, the wall in my view is an immorality.”
Here’s more of Pelosi stuttering from not long ago…
Pelosi: “And they’re here now, in what is one of the most tranformative, new members of— body of members of Congress.”
Pelosi: “We will— we will win 40, uh, we will win 4— we will have, take, win 40 seats.”
Pelosi: “The Special Counsel cannot be fired without cause. He, he or she would be granted a three-judge appeal panel if fired, uh, could only be removed by a Senate-confirmed AG— replaced by a Se— uh, Senate-confirmed Attorney General.”
According to Pelosi, all Republicans are “despicable.”
Pelosi was busted on a hot mic getting confused during her first speech to Congress.
She begins her speech: “As we take the oath of office today, we accept responsibility as daunting and demanding as any that previous generations of leadership have faced.”
Then, caught on a hot mic: “I think I skipped a couple pages. I’m not sure.”

Here’s the beginning of Nancy’s speech, but you can check out the full transcript at this link.
Thank you, Leader McCarthy. I look forward to working with you in a bipartisan way for the good of our country, respecting the constituents who sent each of us here.
Every two years, we gather in this chamber for a sacred ritual. Under the dome of this temple of our democracy, the Capitol of the United States, we renew our great American experiment.
I am particularly proud to be the woman Speaker of the House of this Congress, which marks 100 years of women winning the right to vote, as we serve with more than 100 women in the House of Representatives – the highest number in history.
Each of us comes to this chamber strengthened by the trust of our constituents and the love of our families. We welcome all your families who are with us today.
Let me thank my family: my husband Paul; our five children Nancy Corinne, Christine, Jacqueline, Paul, and Alexandra; our grandchildren, and my D’Alesandro family from Baltimore.
"If we ever close the door to new Americans, our leadership role in the world will soon be lost."

Did you know America has three coasts?
Pelosi (CA) has apparently just clued the rest of us in on a monumental secret.
The next Speaker of the House struggled with U.S. geography on Thursday as she once again announced her opposition to a wall along the border with Mexico.
“We, most of us, speaking for myself, consider the wall immoral, ineffective and expensive, and the President said – he promised – he also promised Mexico would pay for it.”
“So even if they did, it’s immoral still, and then they’re not going to pay for it. So that isn’t how I would interpret a congressional – a continuing resolution.”
“We have a responsibility, all of us, to secure our borders, North, South, and coming in by plane on our coasts, three coasts–North, South and West–and that’s the responsibility we honor. But we do so by honoring our values as well.”
