Nancy Pelosi can’t even get through a short statement about the attack on a colleague without botching it.
The House Minority Leader was addressing reporters on Thursday when she began referring to the “death” of Rep. Steve Scalise, before catching herself.
“Our hearts are broken over the assault that was made, really on all of us,” Pelosi said, referring to the left-wing activists rampage against Republican members of Congress and their staffers during a baseball practice on Wednesday.
“But personally heartbroken over the dea— uh,” she continued, pausing, closing her eyes and lowering her head, “of what happened to Steve Scalise, our colleague,” she finished.
Scalise’s prognosis appears to have become more unclear, according to President Trump’s statement on Thursday.
“It’s been much more difficult than people even thought at the time,” Trump said at the White House.
“He’s in some trouble, but he’s a great fighter and he’s going to be okay, we hope.”
