What’s come over CBS News anchor Gayle King lately, or is she one of the few liberal journalists picking up on the reality that much of the country has had its fill of biased reporting?
In an interview Friday with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, King stunningly rebuked the California Democrat for blasting President Trump‘s “henchmen.”
The discussion was on the much-anticipated debate next week between the president and Democratic nominee Joe Biden, and King asked Pelosi if she still feels that Biden shouldn’t debate Trump — Pelosi had previously said that Biden should not.
“I do — not that I don’t think that [Biden] will be excellent,” Pelosi said. “I just think that the president has no fidelity to fact or truth, and actually in his comments the last few days, no fidelity to the Constitution of the United States.”
“He and his henchmen are a danger — with their comments — are a danger to our democracy,” the speaker continued. “So I don’t want to give him — why bother? He isn’t committed to the Constitution.”
(Pelosi was referencing the media-generated non-story about a peaceful transition of power, should Trump lose the election.)

While Pelosi’s rhetoric would easily slide on CNN or MSNBC, King called foul.
“But Speaker Pelosi, that’s what people say is the problem,” she said. “Your language to some is just as egregious as what they’re saying — by calling the president’s people ‘henchmen.’ Some could say that’s just as insulting as what he’s saying about you.”
Ignoring Gayle’s criticism of her words, Pelosi replied, “Well, I don’t care what he says about me.”
She also showed what her priorities are.
“Every knock from him is a boost for me. If he wants to help me raise money, he can keep knocking me,” the Democrat said.
“But I’m speaking truth,” Pelosi added, before proceeding to further distort the truth.
In an interview Monday with White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany, King drew praise for being even-handed, though she did throw out a gotcha-style question about Trump nominating someone to replace the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the Supreme Court.
A question McEnany made quick work of.
As for Pelosi, she handled King’s criticism better than she did being called “Crazy Nancy” on live TV by CNBC host Jim Cramer recently.
A million emotions could be seen racing across her face, to include anger, as Pelosi tried to not only comprehend what she just heard, but quickly formulate a PG-rated response to safe face.
Here’s a sampling of responses to the story from Twitter:
The eyebrows !!!!!! Look at the eyebrows.

And yet she gives zero examples of her accusations…

If this is truly their belief, D’s should be demanding Biden be on the trail all day and night, convincing us of his fidelity to these things until the election.

I have to say, her surgery turned out really good. You can hardly tell she’s almost 100 years old.
