Something may seriously be wrong with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
During her weekly news conference on Thursday, she not only brought out a massive poster with tombstones on it, she also struggled to say “grim reaper” when trying to attack Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.
Pelosi began by pointing to a massive poster entitled, “McConnell’s Graveyard,” which features several tombstones of bills that were passed in the Democratic-controlled House, but have not been put to a vote in the GOP-controlled Senate.
Pelosi began by trying to call McConnell the “grim reaper,” but she could hardly pronounce the word and fumbled through an entire sentence.
She then detailed several of the tombstones — or bills — and said McConnell won’t even bring them to a vote on the floor.
“Leader McConnell seems to take great pride in calling himself the ‘Grim Reaper,’ it’s part of his political campaign,” Pelosi said at the press conference. “It’s part of the pride he takes as leader of the Senate.”
“None of these things are going to pass,” she continued. “They’re not even going to be voted on.”
McConnell isn’t taking up any of her bills because they are nothing short of far-left policies that are anything but bipartisan.

During a recent interview with Fox News, McConnell said that he has embraced the title of “grim reaper” in the Senate.
“I’ve kind of enjoyed playing off of my enemies over the years, and in fact the ‘Grim Reaper’ title I gave myself,” he told Fox. “Happy to embrace it.”
Pelosi last week denounced McConnell’s refusal to take up the bills, referring to the Senate as a “graveyard” in a scrum with reporters.
“We’re very proud of the work that we have done to send over to the Senate, where Mitch McConnell has said he’s the ‘Grim Reaper’ — it’s a Senate graveyard,” she told reporters last week.
She added: “We have news for him: It’s alive and well in the public, and he will be hearing from the public, hopefully very soon.”
Pelosi has been very angry lately, primarily because she is losing control of her own party, many of which are desperate to begin impeachment proceedings against President Trump right now.
While Pelosi hasn’t endorsed impeachment, she has made several other controversial remarks about the president.
Pelosi told senior Democrats during a closed door meeting last week that she wants to see Trump “in prison.”
The California Democrat is currently in a bind with her own party over whether to wait or try to impeach Trump before the 2020 election.
She may eventually cave and allow House Democrats to move ahead with impeachment proceedings, but she’s well-aware of the political ramifications of going down that path.
