House Speaker Nancy Pelosi joined failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton on the latter’s You and Me Both podcast and talked about the January 6 protest at the U.S. Capitol, complaining that lawmakers “can’t move on” from the protest because they were “traumatized” by it.
“I’m sad,” Pelosi said when asked how she is “holding up.” “I’m deeply sad, because here it is, the Capitol, this symbol of democracy to the world, being overrun by people who are being incited by a person who is not speaking truth,” she added, apparently referring to President Trump calling out the left’s massive voter fraud in the presidential election.
Fact checks: 1) For the millionth time: Trump did not incite violence, and 2) Trump was not lying about Democrat voter fraud.
“Everybody said, ‘Well, we’ve got to move on.’ No, we can’t move on,” Pelosi continued. “We can’t move on. We will move on, but we have to take stock of what this is.” She went on to say that fellow Democrats in the Capitol were “traumatized” by having to hide under chairs and belly-crawl across the gallery.
Good. They needed some shaking up.
