How dare anyone question the great Nancy Pelosi!
Via Washington Examiner:
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., announced that she will run again for the top position in her conference, but she was offended by the suggestion that she’s too old to continue in the post. [...]
When NBC’s Luke Russert asked if she was preventing younger leaders from advancing in the party, Pelosi took offense and implied it was a sexist question.
“You’ve always asked that question except to [Republican Senate Minority Leader] Mitch McConnell,” she told the reporter, who framed his question as a comment made privately by some Democrats. Other members of Congress standing with her accused the reporter of “age discrimination.”
“Let’s for a moment honor it as a legitimate question — although it’s quite offensive, though you don’t realize it I guess,” Pelosi continued when he followed up. “No.” Before that final denial, Pelosi said that she has always worked to promote younger leaders.
