‘I’m a street fighter’: Pelosi says she was ready to take on Capitol mob

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) announced in a recent interview with USA Today that if the rioters who breached the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6 had reached her, she’d have put up a fight.

Pelosi told USA Today that the mob was “setting out” to kill her, but suggested in response to a question that she wasn’t frightened at the prospect.

“Well, I’m pretty tough,” the speaker reportedly said. “I’m a street fighter. They would have had a battle on their hands.”

The 81-year-old congresswoman then gestured to the 4-inch stiletto heels she was wearing. “I would have had these,” she said, suggesting the shoes could be used as a weapon.

A look back

Pelosi noted back in January that she at first wanted to stay in the Capitol during the riot, but later relented to security and was evacuated, Newsweek reported.

Rioters did manage to make their way to Pelosi’s office during the unrest in January. One suspect, Richard Barnett, was even photographed sitting in Pelosi’s chair with his feet on the congresswoman’s desk.

Later in her talk with USA Today, Pelosi said she would never forgive the rioters for the trauma they had caused.

“I’ll never forgive them the trauma that they caused to the staff and the members,” she said. “I do think it will have an impact on how people decide to come to work here or stay to work here and the rest,” the speaker added.

In the weeks that followed the riot at the Capitol, Pelosi led the House to impeach then-President Donald Trump a second time over the unrest, though Joe Biden took over the White House before a trial in the Senate began.

The Senate ultimately acquitted Trump of the single charge against him.

A look ahead

When Pelosi’s interview with USA Today went public, social media didn’t hold back in its criticism — or its jokes. “I can’t wait for the Nancy Pelosi: Street Fighter movie!” one Twitter user opined, according to The Washington Times. Another called her “delusional at best.”

With no plans for retirement or resignation in sight for the House speaker, one can only hope voters keep off-the-wall comments like her most recent ones in mind when midterms roll around in November 2022.

  3. Pelosi is just a talker not anything else….she probably would wet herself if they got close to her…so sick of her talking points GO HOME n do not talk Nancy

  4. Every time this old woman opens her mouth she shows just how STUPID she really is!
    She doesn’t have a CLUE!


  6. Please!! That woman needed help getting up off the floor from her knees when she and other vacuous Democrats knelt in the Capitol to show their strong support and love for the criminal, George Floyd! Yep — he was their kind of “man.” So if she can’t even get up from her knees without being pulled up, how on earth would she be able to take on the purported capitol “mob??” What a joke she is. 😂

  7. The true Nancy Pelosi. A Damn Liar, and with the radical mob combined of antifa, BLM excetera excetera. I believe they would have killed her. American would be somewhat better right now without her.

  8. The only people responsible for the capital attack is congress. If they were doing their job and representing the people of THIS country, it would never have happened. Also if the people believed there was no cheating in the election this wouldn’t have happened. We, the people, never got to be heard in a court of law to whether or not the election was rigged and neither side is going to change their minds on this without proof.

  9. Is there anyone more evil and stupid than Pelosi. She and Mad Maxine Waters open their mouths and stick both feet in and then add Schiff, Nadler, Schumer, Harris, Biden and Obama and look what you’ve got…the most evil stew of an administration in the world!

  10. Why wasn’t Pelosi investigated of the January 6th involvement because she was in charge of everything??????????

  11. I would bet a whole lot on the fact that she is the one that told the Capitol police to STAND DOWN. She is the one with control over them. It will come out.

  12. My prayers will be answered when Pilosi AND Waters will be removed from office. Please oh please let it happen. Can anyone tell me what either of them have done to make this world a better place? This is a serious question.
