Pelosi Calls CNN's Blitzer An "Apologist" For Trump: "You Don't Know What You're Talking About"

|

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi told CNN's Wolf Blitzer that he was an "apologist" for President Trump when he asked her why she refuses to accept President Trump's offer for a deal on a second round of COVID-19 relief.

Pelosi said Blitzer had “no knowledge” of the details of the two relief proposals being argued over.

"They do not share your values," Pelosi said. "What makes me amused, if it weren't so sad, is how you all think that you know more about the suffering of the American people than those of us who are elected by them to represent them at that table."


“[Americans] really need the money right now…even members of your own caucus, madam speaker, want to accept this deal,” said Blitzer.

"I don’t know why you’re always an apologist and many of your colleagues are apologists for the Republican position."

“Why not work out a deal with [President Trump] and don’t let the perfect as they say here in Washington, be the enemy of the good?” Blitzer said.

“Well I will not let the wrong be the enemy of the right,” Pelosi responded.

“They minimize the need for childcare, which is the threshold with which people, mothers and fathers, can go to work if they have that,” she said about the GOP bill. “Thank you for your sensitivity to our constituents’ needs."

“I am sensitive to them because I see them on the street begging for food, begging for money,” Blitzer said.

“Have you fed them? We feed them,” she responded
