House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) on Monday took fear-mongering to a whole new level telling an audience during a speech that “civilization as we know it is at stake.”
Pelosi was giving a speech at Northeastern University in Boston, Massachusetts when it was reported by Fox News correspondent Rob DiRienzo.

Pelosi also revealed that she “just generally, I usually always cast my vote for a woman. I just do.”

One audience member did challenge Pelosi and asked her if she’d be ok if a Republican was the first woman elected president and she replied, “That’s okay.”
Pelosi’s made these remarks after the White House released a statement that President Trump would not attend Pelosi’s annual St. Patrick’s Day Lunch on Capitol Hill.
“Since the Speaker [of the House Nancy Pelosi] has chosen to tear this Nation apart with her actions and her rhetoric, the President will not participate in moments where she so often chooses to drive discord and disunity, and will instead celebrate the rich history and strong ties between the United States and Ireland at the White House on March 12,” White House deputy press secretary Judd Deere said in a statement of the decision.
Pelosi also made similar comments during a CNN town hall event in December when she said, “The damage that this administration has done to America — America is a great country, we can sustain — two terms, I don’t know. Civilization, as we know it today, is at stake in this election.”
Pelosi is no stranger to using over the top descriptions to attack the President or Republicans. In a recent interview, Pelosi said President Trump was, “the most dangerous person” in American history.
