Nancy Pelosi Went On The View This Morning And Meghan McCain Did Not Mince Words – [VIDEO]
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) appeared on The View Friday and quickly found herself defending the Democratic Party from Meghan McCain, The View’s newest co-host.
“There’s a fracture in your party in the same way there’s a fracture in mine. And there are a lot of people like Tim Ryan (D., Ohio) that were calling you to step down and asking for new blood,” Republican co-host Meghan McCain said.
For reference, Tim Ryan at one point launched an unsuccessful bid for Pelosi’s leadership post.
“I don’t think it’s gender,” McCain continued. “Look at the Bernie supporters versus Hillary supporters. How do you respond to that?”
“Let me, with all due respect, disagree with you. There is not a fracture in our party similar to what’s happening to the Republican Party,” Pelosi said to applause.
“I think, with all due respect, that’s part of your problem,” McCain said.
“It’s always been a dynamic party. It is not a rubber stamp; that’s the vitality of it,” Pelosi said.
Pelosi went on to detail how the election of Donald Trump has encouraged her to stay in her position.
“I feel very confident in what I’m doing and the support I have. Please don’t think it’s anything like the fracture that is in the Republican Party,” Pelosi said.
