Pelosi Slams Sexism In Retirement Questions
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi responded to questions about her retirement by noting Mitch McConnell doesn't face similar pressure.By Matt Picht | November 13, 2014
At 74 years young, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi isn't about to retire. And when one reporter asked if she'd considered stepping down following the Democratic defeat in the House, the 27-year Congressional veteran took offense.
PELOSI VIA C-SPAN: "What was the day that any of you said to Mitch McConnell when they lost the Senate three times ... 'Aren't you getting a little old Mitch? Shouldn't you step aside?' Have you ever asked him that question?"
Pelosi is, of course, referring to the 72-year-old Senate Majority leader-elect Mitch McConnell, whose party won the Senate earlier this month after suffering defeats three times in a row. Pelosi and House Democrats are on a similar three-time losing streak. (Video via CBS)
