House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s recent press conference didn’t go well, and the controversial footage has gone viral.
In the short video, Pelosi is seen slurring her words, putting her mask on upside-down, and seemed confused — and critics say she looked like she was drunk.
“An… and that’s-s why I said that. Yeah,” the 0:28 video shows Pelosi saying at a Sep. 30 news conference. “Y-ya got it?”
“Thank you all very much,” she continues. “It’s going to be an ebentful day, perhaps I’ll see you along the w…”
Pelosi stops her sentence when she seems to notice someone on her left and exclaims “Hi!”
“S-so, see ya along the way,” she said as she turns back towards the journalists. “Think positively, okay!”

While some far-right critics claimed it was proof Pelosi was drunk, others said it’s simply an alarming look at a senior struggling with her health. At 81-years-old Pelosi is not a young woman, after all, and often the elderly will struggle with their memory… or with dentures.
Take a look at the controversial footage and judge for yourself.

This isn’t the first time critics have accused Pelosi of being drunk during a news conference.
In 2019, then-President Donald Trump shared a video Pelosi claimed to be faked.
Unlike the above video, however, the Trump video was edited to slow Pelosi’s words.
It was quickly scrubbed from social media after backlash.
