Pelosi: If Boehner Were a Woman, He’d Be Called ‘Weakest Speaker in History’


On All In with Chris Hayes last night, Nancy Pelosi hinted that John Boehner was benefitting from a sexist double standard as speaker. “If he were a woman, they would be calling him the weakest speaker in history,” she said, because Republicans “don’t get anything done.”

“If a woman was speaker and nothing was happening in this way, they’d say, ‘Oh my gosh, Oh my gosh,’” Pelosi averred. “I’m just getting, shall we say, a little tired of the way they take a pass on some and not on others.”
