House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is actually claiming she’s so tough she would have fought the Capitol attendees if they had caught up with her or something.
Pelosi told USA Today that she thinks several people intended to reach her and other targets, such as Vice President Mike Pence.
She stated, “That’s what they were setting out to do. Well, I’m pretty tough. I’m a street fighter. They would have had a battle on their hands.”
Pelosi also claimed she would have used her “4 inch high stilettos,” saying that she would have used those as her weapons.
Pelosi then claimed that she would have put up a fight if anyone reportedly wanted to kill her had been able to get to her.
“That’s what they were setting out to do,” she said.
The paper asked her if that frightened her, and she responded, “Well, I’m pretty tough. I’m a street fighter. They would have had a battle on their hands.”
“I was never personally afraid because I had so much security for myself,” Pelosi said. “I was afraid for everybody else, and I’ll never forgive them the trauma that they caused to the staff and the members.”
She added, “I do think it will have an impact on how people decide to come to work here or stay to work here.”
What Pelosi is really doing is continuing to make the Capitol events into more than it ever was.
It was never an armed insurrection like she claimed.
But Democrats are good at lying about events in order to demonize their enemies. And no one is better at doing that than Pelosi.

At another point in the interview, Pelosi unloaded on New York Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and members of the socialist “Squad” in a new biography by USA Today Washington bureau chief Susan Page.
Pelosi spoke ten separate times with Page for the book, which is scheduled for release on April 20.
During the interviews, Pelosi took shots at several prominent members of her own party, such as AOC as well as Democratic Reps. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts, and Rashida Tlaib of Michigan.
She mocks Ocasio-Cortez specifically for her youth and apparent ignorance:
Pelosi unloads on the Squad, at one point adopting a child-like voice when discussing Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and offers the Squad this blunt advice: “You’re not a one-person show. This is the Congress of the United States.”
During another part in her series of interviews with Page, Pelosi blames former President Barack Obama over problems whipping votes in favor of the Affordable Care Act, known as Obamacare, from lawmakers representing Obama’s home state of Illinois.
“Why are we having a problem with Illinois?” Pelosi asked.
She also said that Obama does not deserve sole credit for getting legislation through Congress under his administration.
