Nancy Pelosi Uses A Hilarious Hand Gesture To Express Her Disgust With Kevin McCarthy

Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) made it clear Wednesday evening exactly what she thinks about how Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) is running things in the lower chamber of Congress, and the hand gesture she used to express herself set off laughter on social media.

Speaking with Anderson Cooper, Pelosi noted that the only reason McCarthy agreed to open an impeachment inquiry aimed at President Joe Biden is because he is so terrified of losing the Speaker’s gavel that he has given into every demand made of him by GOP extremists.

“You have to impeach the president or else we’re going to vacate the chair of speaker,” Pelosi said. “You have to shut down government or else we’re going to vacate the chair of speaker. This is not responsible governance, but it’s the chaos on the Republican side.”

Cooper asked if that doesn’t put McCarthy in what can best be called an “impossible situation.”

“Yeah. The incredibly shrinking speakership.”

As she made the comment, Pelosi also made a gesture with her hand that suggested either something being crushed or shriveling up, much like the so-called speakership of Kevin McCarthy.

It didn’t take long for Twitter users to express their delight.
