Gayle King scolds Nancy Pelosi for calling Trump's allies 'henchmen' – telling the Speaker that it is 'insulting’, ‘egregious' and solves nothing

 Gayle King has chastised Nancy Pelosi for calling Donald Trump's allies 'henchmen', telling the Speaker that it was 'insulting' and unhelpful.

King asked Pelosi about her previous remarks on Friday morning, after the Speaker said that Joe Biden should not participate in Tuesday's debate with Trump.

Pelosi said she stood by her comments, because she felt it was a pointless exercise. 

'I just think that the President has no fidelity to fact or truth, and actually in his comments the last few days, no fidelity to the Constitution of the United States,' she told King. 

'He and his henchmen are a danger with their comments, are a danger to our democracy.

'I didn't want to give him, you know, why bother — you know, he doesn't tell the truth. He isn't committed to our Constitution, but Joe Biden is right —'

King, who famously donated to Barack Obama's campaign, holidayed with the Obamas and is close friends with Oprah Winfrey, interjected, and called Pelosi out on her choice of words.

'But Speaker Pelosi, that's what people say is the problem,' she said. 

'Your language to some is just as egregious as what they're saying by calling the president's people "henchmen". 

'Some could say that's just as insulting as what he's saying about you.'

Pelosi brushed off King's criticism, saying Trump's attacks did not worry her and they actually helped her own political fundraising. 

'Well, I don't care what he says about me,' said Pelosi. 

'Every knock from him is a boost for me. If he wants to help me raise money, he can keep knocking me. But I'm speaking truth.'

  1. I can't imagine why true Democrats vote for her. She got wealthy through corruption of her office. She openly invested in stocks she was passing bills on as an example. I thought Democrats were against corporate fat cats? That's ALL she is.
