House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi confused President Donald Trump with George W. Bush during a television interview Sunday morning.
Pelosi was interviewed by ABC’s “This Week” host Jonathon Karl when she made the mistake.
The Democratic California congresswoman was discussing Trump’s first 100 days in office and whether the Democratic Party could work with the president.
Pelosi caught her mistake and corrected herself right away.
“I’m so sorry, President Bush,” Pelosi quipped. “I never thought I would pray for the day that you were president again.”
Democrats strongly opposed the 43rd U.S. president on many issues, including the war in Iraq and the privatization of Social Security. Still, Pelosi acknowledged they found common ground on many other things.
Pelosi tells Karl, “And so you asked the question, how would I work with a Republican president? The way we worked with President Bush.” “We got a great deal accomplished.”
100% Fed Up reports:
Even Jonathan Karl was stunned that Pelosi would remember George W. Bush with fondness considering the vitriol she threw his way for eight years. One has to wonder if Pelosi, who continues to be confused about who the current president is, is fit for office.
