Freudian Slip? Pelosi Accidentally Calls Trump ‘President Bush;’ Media Ignores

February 7th, 2017 1:46 PM

During a press conference Monday morning, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi referred to President Trump as “President Bush.” In a frustrated spiel, Pelosi stumbled over her words as she called out “President Bush” for being unreasonable since his “inauguration.”

PELOSI: While it’s only a couple of weeks since the inauguration, there’s complete evidence, there’s prac--we've seen nothing that we can work--- that I can work with President Bush on, and I’m disappointed because I thought that there might be some interest because of what he said in the campaign which turns out to be not true, a hoax and really dangerous to the economic stability of Americans working families.

As you can see in the background, right after Pelosi says this, Rep. Maxine Waters turns around and whispers something, with a look of embarrassment on her face.

Whether this was an admission that the “blame Bush” era still isn’t over for Democrats or it was just a “senior moment,” Pelosi doesn’t acknowledge her mistake and the media doesn't either. None of the networks reported the verbal slip on their morning or evening shows yesterday or this morning.

You can imagine if this was a 76-year-old Republican making a similar mistake, the media would have a field day in gossipping whether or not they were “senile.”

In fact, we’ve documented the numerous occasions when the media hit a Republican over the head repeatedly about their gaffe, while completely ignoring similar ones from Democrats.

When you even have news networks making listicles of Republican gaffes, but calling Democrat gaffes, “charming,” then there’s an obvious double-standard.
