( - House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi misspoke at a press briefing today on Capitol Hill, using "Russian" when she meant to say "Republican.

The press conference was held to criticize Republican policies on drug prices and healthcare for seniors.

“Attacking the sacred right to healthcare is in the Russian—er Republican—DNA,” Pelosi said.

As Pelosi and people in the room laughed, Pelosi said: "I get these R-words mixed up."
