House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Ca.) used her recent television appearance on Jeopardy! to make political statements on Twitter this week.

When offering clues to contestants on last Friday’s episode of Jeopardy!, Pelosi introduced a question regarding her support for the DACA immigration policy, saying:

“In February 2018, I took to the House floor, speaking for over 8 hours in support of this program that temporarily protects the dreamers in our country from being deported.”

On Wednesday, Pelosi tweeted that “One of the clues I gave during last week’s @Jeopardy episode was about a crucial immigration initiative helping protect patriotic young DREAMers. “If you said ‘#DACA,’ you were right!” she tweeted on Thursday.

Differed Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) is an Obama-era immigration policy that grants temporary, renewable deportation relief for immigrants who were brought into the U.S. illegally as children, while also allowing them to apply for work permits.

Pelosi also tweeted her presentation of another Jeopardy! question, which she used as a pretext to tout her gender identity political achievement.

Before asking contestants how many members of the House serve in the current Congress, Pelosi made sure to mention her role in the increasing gender diversity of the representatives:

“I was the 52nd speaker of the House and the first woman to hold the post since Congress convened in 1789 with 59 representatives; today, our 115th Congress has this many House members.”

No clarification was provided as to how Pelosi’s role as the first female House Speaker was relevant to the question. In a Thursday tweet, Pelosi described the question on Twitter as “a clue to bring you back to civics class!”
