Pelosi stumbles, gaffes after speech, critics compare to Biden’s age-related cognitive decline

Since taking office last year, President Joe Biden has gained notoriety for dozing off in public, making incoherent statements, and repeatedly tripping as he attempted to enter Air Force One.

While critics have attributed those incidents to Biden’s advanced age and ongoing cognitive decline, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) just proved he isn’t the only major Democrat to show warning signs. 

Video footage began to circulate across social media this weekend showing the 81-year-old Democratic leader beginning to stumble just after she delivered a tribute at former Nevada Sen. Harry Reid’s (D) memorial service.

It gets worse

Pelosi followed up that performance during an interview on CBS’s Face The Nation. While speaking with host Margaret Brennan, the House speaker made claims that at times seemed disconnected from reality.

At one point, Pelosi likened attempts by GOP state lawmakers to prevent electoral fraud with rioters storming the Capitol building on Jan. 6.

“What the Republicans are doing across the country is really a legislative continuation of what they did on January 6, which is to undermine our democracy, to undermine the integrity of our elections, to undermine the voting power, which is the essence of a democracy,” she declared.

“What they’re doing – and you pointed out very clearly and I thank you for that – is they are not only suppressing the vote – suppressing the vote – they are nullifying elections,” Pelosi alleged. “Saying it doesn’t matter who gets more votes. It matters who the three people we appoint to analyze that, what they decide,” she insisted.

It’s not the first time

Making bizarre and outlandish statements is not a new habit for Pelosi. Back in 2013, RealClearPolitics quoted her as telling reporters that “as a practicing and respectful Catholic” she considered abortion to be “sacred ground.”

Meanwhile, the House speaker raised eyebrows during an interview with ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos. The Daily Mail reported that when Stephanopoulos asked Pelosi about her efforts to impeach then President Donald Trump, she responded, “Good morning. Sunday morning.”

“This is so uncomfortable to watch,” the paper quoted Meghan McCain as writing at the time on Twitter. “And confusing. It’s like something is malfunctioning.”
