Nancy Pelosi accuses MSNBC host of being 'an apologist for Donald Trump'

 April 30, 2024

MSNBC is known for its left-wing slant, with staff members raising an uproar earlier this year over the prospect of working with former Republican National Committee chairwoman Ronna McDaniel.

Yet in a truly bizarre moment, former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi recently said that one of the network's hosts is "an apologist for Donald Trump."

Pelosi boasts that Biden "created 9 million jobs"

According to Breitbart, Pelosi made that accusation during the course of an interview on Monday with MSNBC host Katie Tur.

The pair discussed this year's election, with Pelosi saying that she has "sympathy and respect for everybody who votes" and is "just glad people vote."

"I know some of them will never, will always reject those of us who might look different to them in leadership and the rest, and that's that," the former House speaker continued.

"But there are those who have real legitimate concerns about immigration, globalization, innovation, and what does that mean to their job and their family's future? And we have to address those concerns. And Joe Biden is doing that. Created 9 million jobs in his term in office," Pelosi insisted.

Host denies being biased in Trump's favor

"Donald Trump has the worst record of job loss of a president. So, we just have to make sure people know," the longtime California Democrat continued.

When Tur pointed out that the job losses seen under Trump were due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Pelosi grew irritated and complained that she favored the former president.

"He had the worst record of any president," Pelosi said of Trump. "We've had other concerns in our country. If you want to be an apologist for Donald Trump, that may be your role, but it ain't mine."

For her part, Tur appeared taken aback by Pelosi allegation that she is a Trump supporter, remarking, "I don't think anybody can accuse me of that."

Polls: Almost two thirds of voters say economy was good under Trump

Meanwhile, polling data suggest that Pelosi's attempt to paint Trump's economic record in a negative light won't go over well with most voters.

A survey published in March by CBS News found that 65% of registered voters described the economy as being "good" during Trump's time in office.

In contrast, just 38% had a similar view of the economy under President Joe Biden, compared with 59% who said it has been "good."
