Pelosi went on to describe O’Rourke as a “welcome addition” to the already crowded field of Democratic candidates for 2020.
While many commended Pelosi’s answer, others were upset that the reputable Kasie Hunt posed the question in the first place.
Disappointing that you would ask such a silly question with such an obvious answer.

Bush-league question and a masterful answer.

Kasie, funny question to ask. Most any high school graduate could do a far better job than our current potus #DoofusDonald

Regardless of the question’s merits, Pelosi’s answer is just one reason that the House of Representatives is in capable hands.
