Nancy Pelosi
"You are going to have to read the speech in order to find out what's in it..."

On Sunday, during an event in New York City, Nancy Pelosi seemed to suffer from spells of memory loss, while giving a speech regarding Obamacare.

Pelosi also spoke about her father, “He was part of a group called the Berkson Group and they did rallies and pageants and parades and um, and when he stood up on the floor of Congress, ‘I stand here as a representative of the …” and then she seemed to be distracted, as she gazed at the audience, standing at a loss of words.

Getting back to what she was saying, Pelosi added to her botched speech, “members of the Jewish army.”

Talking about Obamacare, she elaborated, “Home care — some, you know, people are at home but they still get care from, uh … from Medicaid,” she said, before going silent again while staring into the crowd.

Continuing her speech on health and medical care, Pelosi said, “It will have a tremendous impact on what families can do for their children … ” and motioned with her hands, as if searching the air for the words, and added, “with relationship to what they need to do.”

It is to be noted that this is not the Nancy Pelosi has made such a botched speech. Earlier this month, following the attack on Republican congressmen at the GOP baseball practice in Alexandria, Virginia, Pelosi confused his critical injuries with death.

“Our hearts are broken over the assault that was made, really on all of us,” Pelosi said, referring to the attack on the congressmen by a left-wing activist.

“But personally heartbroken over the dea— uh,” she continued, pausing, closing her eyes and lowering her head, “of what happened to Steve Scalise, our colleague,” she finished.

Well, that's awkward!

While talking to reporters about injured colleague Rep. Steve Scalise (R-La) on Thursday, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) made an embarrassing mistake. Scalise remains in critical condition following the shooting at the GOP baseball practice in Alexandria, Virginia.

“Our hearts are broken over the assault that was made, really, on all of us,” she said, “but personally heartbroken over the dea…ah, at what happened to Steve Scalise, our colleague.”

Even though Scalise is quite alive, currently under treatment for injuries sustained at the shooting, Pelosi seems to begin to say “death,” while talking to reporters at Capitol Hill on Thursday.

“Our thoughts and prayers are with him and Matt Mika,” she added, referring “as they continue with their, the care that they need, but also as we do pay tribute to them, identify with them.”

“Use all of our energy, just like sports,” she continued, and all your energy for them to get well. We all have to pray and identify with their concern.”

The hospital where Rep. Steve Scalise is being treated, Medstar Washington Hospital Center, also released a statement on the condition of the injured Republican Congressman. “Earlier today, Congressman Steve Scalise underwent a second surgery related to his internal injuries and a broken bone in his leg,” the statement read.

“He remains in critical condition, but has improved in the last 24 hours. The Congressman will require additional operations, and will be in the hospital for some time,” it added. “At the request of the family, we will continue to provide periodic updates.”
