She just can’t even…House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) just can’t even say the name of former President Donald Trump.
Pouty Pelosi was asked by a reporter about a potential run by Trump for a second term in 2024.
The reporter said, ”Trump has indicated that he plans to announce a 2024 run in the next month or so. What impact would that have on the midterms, and would it benefit Democrats, in your opinion.”
The House Speaker responded, ”Do I ever even mention his name? Would I even waste my time talking about him?”
CSPAN couldn’t keep from releasing this exchange on their Twitter page:

It is looking more and more likely that Trump will announce his decision about the race soon. He said late last week that he has made his decision and is “mulling” when to announce it.
Pelosi did discuss the midterm elections looming on the political horizon. These elections are a litmus test for the party that is in power. The trend is for the incumbent party to lose seats during the president’s first midterm election.
“What I will say is – and I’ll say this, and I’ve said it again and again: Democrats have absolutely no intention of losing the House in November, and the Senate, too. We are mobilized, we are fortified, we have great candidates and we have a great – our country is at risk. Our Democracy is at risk,” Pelosi said.
That wasn’t all, she added, “But what we are campaigning on are the kitchen table issues that affect America’s working families. So they know the difference between a Democratic and Republican Administration on top of Congress, on top of which – on top of which our Democracy is at stake.”
Pelosi just refused to speculate on 2024. And she added, “even if it’s a former occasional occupant of the White House.”
She just can’t even…
