Nancy Pelosi is a complete disaster. Agree with the previous poster that she should tour Detroit to see the effects of her political party and leadership. Coming to the rest of America soon.

Here's my news update with details of Pelosi's press conference:

I hope she takes the time for a tour of the city of Detroit, so she can see first-hand the consequences of the left-wing Democrat agenda. 50 years of Democratic leadership, and what a hellhole the once-great and beautiful city has become.

I hope she flew commercial.
