On Friday, House Speaker Rep. Nancy Pelosi (C-Calif.) appeared to forget what President Donald Trump and Republicans did that prompted her to accuse them of being complicit in the “murder” of Minnesotan George Floyd.
While explaining why she wouldn’t retract her claim, Pelosi first forgot what was in the Senate Republicans’ police reform bill that offended her – then, she couldn’t even recall what Trump did to draw her ire, saying, “Then, the president comes out with his – whatever it is, saying, uh, uh”…

After about five seconds of searching for words, Pelosi said that the issue of police using chokeholds was the Republicans’ offense:
“Everybody saw the martyrdom. Everybody saw eight minutes, forty-six seconds of a knee on a neck.
“And, then they come up with a bill that says…(waves arms in bewilderment)…and then the president comes out with his – whatever it is – saying, uh, uh (shrugs shoulders, pauses searching for words)…’no…chokeholds, but maybe some.'
“Yeah, I have no, absolutely not.”
“Time for Pelosi to join Biden in a padded room,” conservative commentator Mark Levin tweeted Friday, comparing Pelosi's lapse to those of former Vice President Joe Biden. Levin embedded video of Pelosi spacing out on-camera from a story by The Right Scoop calling attention to the House speaker’s brain freeze:
“Exit Question: Did you notice Pelosi having a Joe Biden moment up there? It took her all of five seconds of thinking to come up with that ‘chokehold’ thing. I thought she was going to pass out for a second, LOL!”
On June 4, Pelosi suffered an even longer on-camera mental lapse, CNSNews.com reported at the time:
“House Speaker Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) appeared to experience a ten-second mental lapse Thursday during an on-camera press conference.
“Pelosi was reading from a letter she had sent to President Donald Trump earlier in the day expressing concerns about “the increased militarization” of law enforcement efforts in the Nation’s Capital amid the violent protests and riots ravaging the city. Pelosi reads from the letter, looks away from it for a second – then loses her train of thought and stutters, unable to collect her thoughts, until she refocuses on the letter.”
