Drunk or Senile? Nancy Pelosi Butchers English Language During Recent Speech

We’re used to Democrat leaders looking foolish, but Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) recently took things to a whole ‘nother level during a speech to Refugees International.

During her short remarks the House Minority leader stumbled, bumbled, mumbled, and garbled dozens of different words making the short speech an embarrassing train-wreck to watch.

The American Mirror has a break down of the rhetorical butchery:

She congratulated honorees for their well-deserved “resc — recognition.”

Pelosi complimented Refugees International’s “strong moral varce — voice.”

She said America “degrades our values and our security when we slam the door in the face of children freeing — fleeing atrocities.”

She botched country names as she read them from her notes.

“With the specter of famine looming in, over northeast Nigeria, Somalia, south “Sudon,” and “Yuma — Yamen,” she said, flubbing “Yemen.”

Pelosi asserted cutting the foreign aid budget would “only deepen the crisis fighting — facing the children.”

“Children, America, children need America to be their champion,” she said moments later.

Pelosi thanked Refugees International for “channeling — challenging us to honor our values.”

Watch it below… if you can stomach the awkwardness.

Did you notice at the end how Pelosi awkwardly closes her notes, looks out at the crowd and half-smiles? You can almost see the bewilderment in her eyes, the wondering… ‘what just happened?’

I don’t know if Pelosi is suffering from some cognitive difficulties, but this speech would seem to suggest that something is wrong.
