During a recent speech in New York City at the 92nd Street Y, Pelosi suffered what appeared to be multiple "brain freezes" that left her unable to fully express her thoughts. Reports indicate that Pelosi had repeated troubles, stopping mid-sentence while trying to form a thought. On multiple instances, she would suddenly stare into the audience for no apparent reason, only to resume whatever she was saying.
When talking about her father, Pelosi stated that "he was part of a group called the Berkson Group and they did rallies and pageants and parades and um, and when he stood up on the floor of Congress, 'I stand here as a representative of the –" she stated, before stopping and staring strangely into the audience. After a few moments of awkward silence, Pelosi resumed, "members of the Jewish army."
A few moments later, Pelosi attempted to explain in a somewhat incoherent way that Democrats needed to plan an agenda after losing four special elections. She stated, rather awkwardly, "For us, we have to make sure that our members – participate in that." She added, urging her liberal followers to tell their Obamacare story, "At least go to Facebook, Twitter, whatever – Instagram – any platform you want."
After bumbling through all of this, Pelosi segued into talking about the Republican plan to overhaul Obamacare, during which she once again lost her train of thought. She stated, with much confusion, "Home care – some, you know, people are at home but they still get care from, uh – from Medicaid," stopping once again to stare blankly into the audience.
"It will have a tremendous impact on what families can do for their children," she picked up, waving her hands around in the air as if she was saying more words, but she wasn't. She finally got the rest out: "with relationship to what they need to do."
Some will recall back in February when Pelosi demonstrated similar brain abnormalities with discussing President Trump's immigration and refugee orders. At one point during a speech at Families U.S.A.'s Health Action 2017 Conference, Pelosi oddly referred to President Trump as "President Bush," and repeatedly used words that didn't make any sense.
Throughout her stuttering and mumbling, Pelosi used inappropriate words, such as "recanting" in stead of "recounting." She also erroneously referred to Ohio Governor John Kasich as being the governor of Illinois, while further referencing civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. as Dr. "Sing." Similar to failed presidential candidate Jeb Bush, Pelosi also abruptly and awkwardly urged her audience to clap at one point during her speech, mistakenly reading out loud an apparent break in her notes that said "Applause Line!"
These could all be simple coincidences, of course. But the fact that this has now happened on multiple occasions with Pelosi suggests that she could be suffering from onset dementia, or some other similar brain abnormality that's causing her to recall incorrect information and struggle through basic sentences.
Back in March, it seemed clear that Pelosi knew it was about time for her to go. She told the media that she had planned to "go home" if Hillary Clinton had won the election. But because she didn't, Pelosi decided to stick around to supposedly protect Obamacare.
