Reporter asks Nancy Pelosi about Beto O’Rourke’s biggest accomplishment. Then things get really awkward.


Recommended Posts


House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) gave some extremely vague answers when asked to name the biggest accomplishment of 2020 presidential contender Beto O'Rourke.


The former Democratic Texas representative announced his official run for president on Thursday.

What did she say?

During a Thursday news conference in the House of Representatives, NBC News' Kasie Hunt asked about O'Rourke's "signature accomplishment" as a representative.

"Beto O'Rourke announced today that he is running for president," Hunt said. "What, in your view, was Beto O'Rourke's signature accomplishment as a member of the House?"

Pelosi seemed to fumble for words and proceeded to give a very vague answer punctuated with positive adjectives.

"Beto brought vitality to Congress," she began. "When he came, he came as a real champion for the environment."

She added, "He got a great deal of support from the environmental community in his district. He won a primary on that subject."

Pelosi went on to point out that O'Rourke was not just a member of the Armed Services Committee, but a strong member of the Armed Services Committee.


Beto the nothing man?
