House Speaker Nancy Pelosi

Eighty-year-old House Speaker Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) struggled to finish a sentence, and appeared to bang on her podium in an effort to collect her thoughts, during a press conference on Thursday.

Speaker Pelosi seemed to lose her train of thought, until she rapped twice on the podium, while she attempted to make a point about her climate agenda. But, after recalling the name of her climate bill, Pelosi continued to have difficulty speaking, struggling to finish the words, “return” and “better” as she completed her thought:

“And, our priorities of a, the, um, one of our, ah…(knocks twice on podium) – our “climate action now” legislation that we passed is from the early legislation for us to have. Re-return to the Paris Accord, but to be-better, to do better than that.”
