WATCH: Pelosi Accuses CNN Of Being Republican “Apologists” During Bizarre Interview With Wolf Blitzer

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi slammed CNN and anchor Wolf Blitzer in an interview Tuesday when he pressed her on passing a coronavirus stimulus package.

In the interview, Blitzer pressed Pelosi on why she would not accept the $1.8 trillion dollar deal the White House and Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin had proposed. She responded by saying it is still not enough money. Blitzer then went on to read a tweet from Democratic California Rep. Ro Khanna which urged Pelosi to take the deal from the White House.

“I don’t know why you’re always an apologist and many of your colleagues are apologists for the Republican position … Ro Khanna, that’s nice. That isn’t what we’re going to do,” Pelosi said to Blitzer in response.

Blitzer then said he’s also spoken with former Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang, who said to take the deal. Pelosi responded by saying, “Honest to God, I really can’t get over it. Because Andrew Yang, he’s lovely. Ro Khanna, he’s lovely. They’re not negotiating this situation.”

The tweet from Khanna that Blitzer was referencing said “People in need can’t wait until February. 1.8 trillion is significant & more than twice Obama stimulus. It will allow Biden to start with infrastructure. Obama won in 08 by doing the right thing on TARP instead of what was expedient. Make a deal & put the ball in McConnell court.”

“With all due respect you really don’t know what you’re talking about,” Pelosi said in response to Blitzer.

Khanna criticized his party in August for leaving town for recess after failing to reach a deal with Republicans on a phase 4 coronavirus stimulus package.
