“Oh, no! We’re in Virginia,” House Speaker Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) exclaimed after she realized she’d told a Virginia press conference that they were in Maryland.

At a press event marking the start of the Democratic Issues Conference in Leesburg, Virginia Wednesday, Rep. Pelosi told the crowd she was pleased to be “in this great state of Maryland” – before realizing she wasn’t.

Pelosi said she should’ve known what state she was in, because “the president is talking about George Washington right now”:

“The people’s interests, not the special interests, will be served. And, that has an impact both on how people view what’s happening in Washington and on what the results are in Washington as well.

“With that, I’m pleased to be here with our leadership of the House and House Democrats, and pleased to yield in this great state of Maryland, to our Leader of the Congress from the – oh no! We’re in Virginia.

“I should know because the President is talking about George Washington right now.

“Oh, my gosh.

“If you have any questions about that, I’ll be pleased to answer later. But from the great state of Maryland, the other side of the Potomac, our distinguished Leader, Mr. Hoyer.”
