Nancy Pelosi made a claim that has Democrats scratching their heads
Nancy Pelosi gave another bizarre interview with CNN.
She believes Democrats are a lock to seize control of the U.S. House.
And she just made a claim that many of her fellow Democrats won’t like.
Pelosi said she will be the next Speaker of the House.

Among Democrats, Pelosi has a 55 percent approval rating.
That is shockingly low for any Democrat in such a high-profile position.
As a comparison, a recent poll showed President Trump has a 90 percent approval rating among Republicans.
Several Democrat candidates capitalized on Pelosi’s abysmal approval rating by campaigning against her becoming Speaker in their primaries.
In the CNN interview, Pelosi also laid out the Democrats’ Midterm election platform:
“In terms of what we would affirmatively do in terms of legislation, we have established our, uh, ‘For The People:’ [unintelligible] lower healthcare costs, bigger paychecks, cleaner government.”
But coming from her, those platform planks are laughable.
Pelosi was the one who slammed the gavel down to pass ObamaCare.
She also complained that the Trump tax cuts – which led to many $1,000 bonuses for workers – were nothing more than “crumbs.”
Finally, Pelosi refused to call President Trump by name, instead referring to him as “45.”
But it’s hard to tell if that was on purpose.
In recent months, the 78-year-old Democrat Minority Leader has had well-documented lapses in memory and struggled to string together a coherent sentence.
