Reporters cackle at Pelosi’s disgraceful response to abortion question

Nancy Pelosi on IRSAt a Thursday press conference, Weekly Standard reporter John McCormack had the audacity to ask a legitimate question of House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi instead of the standard plant construed to prop up Democratic Party talking points.

The response was predictable.

Pelosi responded with anger, trying her best to belittle McCormack. The rest of the media, a.k.a. the palace guards, where quick to mock their colleague with exaggerated laughter to demonstrate to the Democratic leader that they were in lock-step with her.

Pelosi was condemning a bill that would prohibit abortions during the final four months of pregnancy with an exception for when the life and physical health of the mother is at risk, when McCormack asked what the moral difference was between Dr. Kermit Gosnell’s murdering born-alive infants and legalized late-term abortion.

A question Pelosi refused to answer.

“You’re probably enjoying that question a lot. I can see you savoring it,” Pelosi responded with disdain.

“What was done in Philadelphia was reprehensible and everybody condemned it. For them to decide to disrespect a judgment a woman makes about her reproductive health is reprehensible. Next question.”

Keep in mind, “reproductive health” is code for abortion.

“So what’s the moral difference?” McCormack followed up.

“They are saying that there’s no abortion. It would make it a federal law that there would be no abortion in our country,” she replied. “You’re taking the extreme case.”

In response to an inaudible comment by McCormack, Pelosi dismisses the mere mortal by saying, “I’m not going to have this conversation with you because you obviously have an agenda. You’re not interested in having an answer.”

“As a practicing and respectful Catholic, this is sacred ground to me when we talk about this,” she continues. “I don’t think it should have anything to do with politics.”
