Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi must have walked into CBS News expecting softballs from friendly reporters — but instead she walked into a lion’s den.
When they played a video of her Democratic colleagues calling for her head and asked her to comment, Pelosi wasn’t happy.
In fact, she was visibly upset and struggled to explain why her constant failures as Democrat Party leader weren’t actually her fault.
Pelosi was confronted with a montage of Democrats like New York Rep. Kathleen Rice, Ohio Rep. Tim Ryan, Massachusetts Rep. Seth Moulton, and Texas Rep. Filemon Vela appearing on media outlets and calling for her removal as leader following a string of special House election losses in 2017.
“”I’m here… they had their time on TV. This is… uh.. this is such a small item,” Pelosi said. “It isn’t about me! Right now, our fight is about the Affordable Care Act. I’ve always had a challenge in the caucus, right from the start.”

CBS News anchor Charlie Rose then interrupted her and pointed out how she’s lost election after election against Republican opponents, even after spending $30 million on a single House election in Georgia.
“The people in those states are very happy because we’ve pushed the Republicans far back!” Pelosi insisted. “Me? I like to win… But this was…. uh… I… See, the people in Georgia were very hard. And Montana. All of those places. And we made great progress leading up to…”
Rose interrupted, saying: “And you lost.”
A flustered Pelosi stammered to explain why second place in a two-person race is something to be proud of.
“Yeah, we lost… But there’s 70 other races for us that will be easier for [Democrats to win] than those,” Pelosi said. “Those people were all against me in November anyway.”
“Why don’t you think you should step aside?” asked host Gayle King, to which Pelosi laughed and said it’s because she’s a “master legislator.”
Who can blame Pelosi for being flustered?
After all, Pelosi has enjoyed thirty-some years of a chummy relationship with the liberal media.
It’s probably a surprise to be on the receiving end of these media attacks, now that liberals are finally turning against her.
