An uncomfortable House Speaker Nancy Pelosi spent roughly 10 minutes this Sunday morning on CNN, much of it stammering over her words, telling host Jake Tapper to “just calm down,” misrepresenting the president’s China travel ban and telling lies.

To some critics, the entire interview appeared to be a “hot mess.”

Watch it in full below, or look underneath for the highlights:

Forgetful Pelosi

About halfway through the interview, Pelosi tried to tell Tapper how “spectacular” she believes California Gov. Gavin Newsom has been amid the coronavirus pandemic.

However, it took her nearly five full seconds to just say Newsom’s name.


The remarkable clip, which was eerily similar to the clips circulating of presumptive Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden, 77, repeatedly stammering over his words, inspired some concerns and questions from social media critics about Pelosi, 80.


Bossy Pelosi

A bit earlier in the interview, the House speaker grew annoyed after Tapper began questioning her about her caucus’s reported “failure” at including local and state funding in the first emergency coronavirus relief bill that was passed last month.

At one point, Pelosi angrily replied, “Just calm down!”


In response to her rudeness, the public pounced.

Look (*Language warning):

Deceptive Pelosi

Speaking about President Donald Trump’s China travel ban, the speaker acted as if his successful attempt to stymie the coronavirus’ spread had failed.

“Tens of thousands of people were still allowed in from China. It wasn’t as it is described as this great moment. … If you’re going to shut the door because you have an evaluation of an epidemic, then shut the door,” she said.


According to Donald Trump Jr. and other critics, what she neglected to mention was that the tens of thousands of people who were still allowed in from China were American citizens who were trying to return home.


Bonus Pelosi

During another appearance on TV this Sunday morning, Pelosi said this:
