According to a report from Politico, a new HBO documentary that will be released tonight on HBO shows Nancy Pelosi asking the camerawoman, “Am I a bit*h?” during a 2020 phone call with Mike Pence. This phone call centered around the Trump administration’s 2020 policy during the c***d pandemic.
Here’s the recap of the conversation from Politico’s Playbook:
During an early 2020 congressional recess, in the heat of DONALD TRUMP’s pandemic response, NANCY PELOSI listened from home as Vice President MIKE PENCE spoke on a teleconference. The speaker did the laundry and tidied the bed as Pence spoke. Her husband, PAUL PELOSI, made food in the kitchen.
“What is the point of this call?” her daughter, filmmaker ALEXANDRA PELOSI, asked, following her mom around with a video camera. “They’re checking a box,” Pelosi responded as she continued her chores.
Pelosi then unmuted herself, sarcastically declared “this has been a useful exchange” and went on to grill Pence on how the administration was tracking how the virus was spreading before signing off with a cheery “Happy Easter!”
She put herself back on mute and turned to her daughter: “Am I a bit*h?” she asked.
The documentary, by Pelosi’s daughter Alexandra, is titled “Pelosi In The House.” The HBO website describes it as “a candid, behind-the-scenes chronicle of the life of her mother and Speaker of the United States House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi, through her career milestones leading up to the inauguration of President Joseph Biden in January 2021. Filmed in a cinéma vérité style over the course of three decades, Pelosi in the House provides a unique, longitudinal window into the life of a longstanding Democratic politician and history in the making.”
While 99.9% of all Republicans will find this documentary insufferable, we can all get behind Pelosi asking if she is a “bit*h.” It proves just how little self-awareness she actually has.
